I’m not claiming to be an authority on Green (or any player in this draft for that matter haha) But Green DOES have an NBA frame- about 6-6 220 and NBA level athleticism. He has pedigree— was a top 10 recruit and is young; 19 going on 20. He also shot pretty well from 3 as a Freshman. To me, those are huge distinctions between the guys you listed(excepting Poku)and Green.

He smells like a Jae Crowder type to me.

almost no chance of making an allstar game, but a very good likelihood of playing 8-10 years.

what's made you get cold feet on Green?
anything more specific? your own or someone else's analysis?

Questionable decision making and appears it could take several years to develop are concerning to me considering our situation.

I think the potential is there but not sure the ceiling is high enough to take that chance when some others that could be available seem to either have higher upside (Poku) or could contribute immediately (S. Bey).

I’m basically getting cold on him more because we have a pretty deep roster and I don’t see him getting much opportunity much like Reaves last season.
I think he’d be a decent pick at 18 for a team in full rebuild mode but we are a little too far along imo.

Yeah I am looking at Green too, seems like a typical good character kid with tools.

Kind of hoping for Bolmaro tho, slightly too many cooks with Luka but I think they will just play amazing basketball off each other and with KP they can all just speak spanish and confuse tf out of the opposition.

Tyrese Maxey is moving up my draft board. In pre draft workouts he looks bigger than his listed size and crazy athletic. I think he’s probably gone 8-13 range.

Edit: here’s the video I saw:

NBA level athlete, no doubt. I’d roll the dice on teaching him to shoot— his shot isn’t broken just needs reps and coaching. I agree he’ll be gone before we can draft him but would be happy if he or Kira slipped.

Watched Kira Lewis’ tape against Tyrese Halliburton/ Iowa St. and walked away pretty disappointed. I know he’s young and we need to project into the future, but compared to Halliburton he looked disinterested and slow.

These mocks are so all over the place that I'm not sure how one could take much from them. Like bleacher report having Cole Anthony at 7? Weird.

To be fair, only ESPN and the Ringer really do any analysis and the only sources who have gotten more than 15-20% of picks right.

Also, the volatility just proves that this draft is super weak at superstars. I think we may see 20-30 starters coming out of this draft,t but I doubt we'll see more than 2 stars.
