Hunter and Zion would be an absolute terror defensively.

I’d go Culver personally. I don’t think Garland would be wise.

I think Hunter is significantly better and more versatile defensively despite Culver being good at that end. I think Culver's offensive skills are overstated by some. I see some Evan Turner at that end.

Atlanta seems likely to be one of the teams interested in the 4th pick. A package of 8, 10 and change could probably get it done. Have to think they are targeting Hunter or Culver. Then adding a center at 17 from the Brooklyn trade

Can Clarke play the 3 at all? If not, as much as I love him as a prospect, I don't see anyway the Bulls take a backup PF at 7.

I like Clarke and Grant Williams a lot, but I could see teams shying off both due to lack of measurables and shooting. I think it'd be dumb, but I could see it happening.

Plenty of smoke right now; looks like the Cavs are intrigued by Garland too which doesn’t make a ton of sense to me as far as fit. Unless they’re just going to straight move Sexton because they feel Garland projects better long term? Perhaps they just want to trot out the shortest backcourt in the league. That’s fine too since if you’re not interested in accomplishing anything.

Btw Kyle while I like Culver a bit I agree about the offensive skill set being overrated at least from what I have seen. I don’t know enough about Hunter right now.

Hunter is meh to me. I see him being Thad Young. Which isn’t bad but still

Zion

Ja
Culver
Barrett
-
Garland
Hunter
Clarke

Doumbouya
Little
White
Hayes
Hachimura
Bitadze

If Hunter can develop to be more consistent from behind the arc he’ll be a great 3 and D player and have a nice long career, but his ceiling is well below Culver. He just feels like a safe pick because his skill set projects well, but he’s never going to be a super star.

I’d move Hachimura and Reddish a tier up and Bruno Fernando and Romeo Langford to the last tier. Doumbouya is the big wild card in the lottery. Tons of potential but we’ll see if his game can translate to the nba

I don't think he fits today's NBA mold where scouts are so gaga over measurements. He's not tall or long by today's standards. He reminds me a bit of Caleb Swanigan who has yet to carve out a role in the league.

What's so special about Garland? Undersized PG who averaged under 3 AST/game.

He has good percentages but he doesn't seem like a Lillard type scorer.

He averaged more than 3, that stat is insanely misleading because it counts the 5th game where he played 2 whole minutes.

The more I think about this I am leaning against it. I've decided Culver isn't really a better prospect than Josh Okogie.

Conley traded to the Jazz means the Grizzlies now have the 23rd pick. Is C or wing the bigger need?

Jackson is the C, so I would imagine 3&D wing types will be top of the list.
