    Claxton, White, and Murray you just say “Release The Hounds” that would be all defensive team.

    A seven-footer who can play this type of perimeter defense is difficult to ignore:

    Ya - that is the highlight I was talking about in the video (the longer video). That leaps off the screen. Same with his ability to push the ball and pass.

    Probably 60/40 chance he's a bust IMO so I'd rather get him at 29 ... but his upside is good enough that I wouldn't be upset at 19.

    The fact Metu is similar scares me; that is like the blue print for this type of guy and........it’s not inspiring. Upset isnt the right word, but I don’t think he’s worth drafting and I really find it hard to believe he will be BPA at 19. Really hard to believe that.

    Claxton is far away from being a NBA player.

    Very athletic though.

    I disagree with the Metu comp. Metu is far less mobile.

    He strikes me as someone getting hyped up near the draft, so he'll probably get drafted much higher than his true worth. 29 would be cool. 19...ehhh, I guess it depends who's left.

    I'm hearing that the opinion on talent is that it gets weak fast after the top 3 or 4 players, so I'd predict we'll be drafting "potential upside" by the time we get to 19. So yeah, this one wouldn't shock me with our first pick.

    Reminds of a little of DJ Wilson from a couple years that played at Michigan and was drafted by Milwaukee. I was kinda high on him but he hasn't shown much his first couple years.

    Great interview. Came across as intelligent, articulate.
    I got the opposite of intelligent and articulate. He doesnt seem bright. But if we get him, hope the Spurs instill bball enough bball iq.

    Compared to Kawhi, he looks like a Rhodes Scholar. But in general, these things are subjective. To me, he appeared thoughtful, for an athlete.

    Sam Vecenie: According to a source, Georgia forward Nic Claxton has canceled and shut down all workouts for non-lottery teams. Feels good about where he’ll be picked based off of feedback during the pre-draft process.via Twitter Sam_Vecenie

    If he has a promise in the lottery then somebody is falling.

    Sounds like he'll be gone at 19. Impressive climb up the draft board for someone who wasn't even viewed as an NBA prospect not that long ago.

    Yeah. People keep saying "There's no chance that (X) will be on the board at 19," but I bet if you made a list of those players it'd be like 26 names long. There will be really good players available at 19 and 29. This is looking like the best draft since 2011.

    That's hella surprising if he got a promise from a lotto team. I thought he might be available at the 19th spot for sure. Samanic, should be our target there unless one of the better wings aka small forwards drop.

    I feel this draft has a decent amount of guys who can play the 3 and D role decently in the NBA, so the 19th pick should be a high ceiling player. Claxton and or Samanic were my guys.

    It feels like people are elevating the stock of certain players in search of the next Draymond or Siakam. It makes sense. But that also means some more talented guards will likely slip.

    If he had a promise, he would have shut down ALL workouts.

    This draft is going to be odd. They've already invited 16 players to the green room, and there are only 14 lottery draft picks. No one really knows what will happen after the first 3 picks.

    OMG, this place would melt if they pick another guard.
