I think I'd go Garland, Culver, White, Hunt for 4-7.

If the Bulls don't get Garland or White I'm going to burn this place down.

I need to watch more Garland. What I've heard is intriguing but I wonder if he's benefiting from not playing at all and not putting mediocre tape out there like a lot of the rest of this class.

Three sleepers in that 26-30? Maybe with Gilbert stroking out he can stay the fuck away from the draft

I don't think he will last until 11 but I'd be elated with him there.

He is. 18th is an absurd ranking for him.

I'm somewhat concerned based on that as well but in reality there are no high level point guards in this class anyway. After the potential of Garland and White it's what, Edwards? I'm not taking him top 10 that's gross.

And yeah, Clarke is quite good I don't know why so many are low on him.

I like Ty Jerome, Grant Williams, Mathisse Thybulle and Cam Johnson.

Who are the athletic/length & strength freaks in this class that could “fall” because of lack of college production, but still have a high ceiling a la Giannis, Paul George, and Kawhi

Kawhi was a great college player, so not sure that fits exactly. And that'll be Brandon Clarke, but because of his age rather than production.

That’s true he did kinda put SDSU on the map that year. I guess it was more that he was seen as a defensive prospect with limited offense that lead to his slide, but still you got my point.

I’ll have to check out more on Clarke. Rui was always the one to catch my eye when I watched any Gonzaga ball this year

Both Kawhi and PG13 put up very solid numbers in college, but fell in the teens likely because they played on the West Coast.

If I had to guess on just 1 player who fit this mold I’d pick Rui. Seems like the type of hard worker who can eventually develop a nice jump shot and ball handling. Might be more of a PF but he reminds me of Kawhi coming out

Also here’s a mock draft I put together. Let me know if I should make any adjustments or forgot any 1st round prospects

Spoiler!

Seems like Grant is more PJ Tucker-y than Millsap

He's kind of in between. He's got more individual scoring and passing chops than Tucker but probably won't shoot as well.

Grant Williams reminds me of Leon Powe back in the day
