One of Danny Aigne's better deals was to trade Fultz for Tatum and Sacramento's first round pick. This ended up being the 14th pick in the draft. The question is-- who is going to be available at the pick.
- Bol Bol
PRO: 7- 2 1/4 and a 7-7 wingspan and a decent jump shot-- Bol Bol is more unicorn than Porzingis.
CON: Has several red flags. First, at 208 can he ever be anything other than a novelty. Second, some reports question his intensity. Third, he is a seven footer with foot problems-- see Yao Ming and Greg Oden.
NBADRAFT.NET NBA Comparison: Sam Perkins/Kristaps Porzingis
- Sekou Doumbouya
PRO: Best international player entering the draft. Has the potential to be an impact defender at the 4.
CON: Has not developed much of an offensive game.
NBADRAFT.NET NBA Comparison: Billy Owens/Tim Thomas
- Goga Bitadze
PRO: As perhaps the most skilled BIG in this year's draft he has the size ( 6-11, 7-2 Wingspan) to play the five. Would compliment Robert Williams III very well.
CON: Limited athletically.
NBADRAFT.NET NBA Comparison: Nenad Krstic/Jusuf Nurkic
- Tyler Herro
PRO: One of the better shooters in the draft. Again, fills a need as a back up to Brown.
CON: Has short arms, defensively best case scenario is not to be a liability.
NBADRAFT.NET NBA Comparison: Nik Stauskas/Joe Harris
- Nassir Little
PRO: Coming out of high school was considered to be on par with Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett. If you were going to design an N.B.A. wing-- Little is pretty close to the prototype you would use.
CON: Had a weak freshman year at North Carolina.
NBADRAFT.NET NBA Comparison: Gerald Wallace
- Rui Hachimura
PRO: Very similar to Sekou Doumbouya-- solid defender with limited offensive range. May have a higher floor and lower ceiling.
CON: Does not bring much to offense.
NBADRAFT.NET NBA Comparison: Antawn Jamison
- Romeo Langford
PRO: Very skilled offensive player.
CON: Some athletic limitations and did not have a great freshman year.
NBADRAFT.NET NBA Comparison: Evan Turner
- Mfiondu Kabengele
PRO: Great size with a 7-3 could develop into an impact post player.
CON: Every minute that goes to Kabengele's development is at the expense of Robert Williams III. Is very likely to be on the board at 20 or 22-- so may not be worth reaching for.
NBADRAFT.NET NBA Comparison: Vin Baker
- Nickeil Alexander-Walker
PRO: Big point guard who can shoot.
CON: Looks to have a low ceiling. While he has the best shot at being a solid rotational player, it seems unlikely he will ever be a dominant player.
NBADRAFT.NET NBA Comparison: Spencer Dinwiddie/Jordan Clarkson
- Brandon Clarke
PRO: Super athletic, high motor defensive dynamo who would likely become a fan favorite.
CON: At 6'8" and a 6-8 1/4 has marginal length to play the 4. He is a limited offensive player.
NBADRAFT.NET NBA Comparison: Jordan Bell
- Kevin Porter Jr.
PRO: N. Little lite-- one of the draft's elite athletes.
CON: Not very disciplined-- averaged more turnovers than assists in college. A bit of a reach at 14.
NBADRAFT.NET NBA Comparison: Deshawn Stevenson
- Carsen Edwards
PRO: One of the most skilled offensive players in the draft. Can shoot and create his own shot.
CON: Is small and not a dominant athlete. HUGE REACH at #14.
NBADRAFT.NET NBA Comparison: Quinn Cook/Frank Mason
