    Anthony Edwards

    College: Georgia
    Position: Shooting Guard
    Age: 19
    Height: 6-foot-5
    Weight: 225 pounds
    Draft Range: 1 to 3

    Why: Natural born scorer. Powerful body and leaping ability allows him to finish in the lane with ease. Shooting stroke looks good. Can create and shoot off the dribble. Quality court vision. Long arms and impressive athleticism could make him a stout defender.

    Why Not: Questionable decision-making. Not known as a team-first player or a winner, to put it kindly. Mostly underwhelmed at Georgia. Loud whispers about his character.

    Spurs Fit: He'd dominate the G League level so the Spurs would probably just let him learn on the fly in San Antonio. He'd become the starting shooting guard pretty quickly, if only for the Spurs to get an early read on whether his character issues are real or imagined.

    Spurs Comparison - Ceiling: Supersized Tony Parker

    Spurs Comparison - Floor: 1997 Vernon Maxwell

    Thanks for doing these profiles timvp!

    Edwards strikes me more as a Dwyane Wade type player than some of the other comparators that draft sites use. He's a 6'5" athletic bull who can move, jump and shoot. The character issues are just too much.

    I think you have to take him #1. But if that is SA with their guards likely locked up cheaper (assuming White gets less than or equal to Murray) do you trade back and get another guy + picks?

    Wiseman seems to have the same upside and less character issues so should Sa just go with Wiseman since he hits position of need as well?

    The lazyness and "dumbness" are too much of a red flag for me, but in this less than ideal draft in terms of talent you would have no choice but to take him if he's available. Thankfully the Spurs won't have to worry about that dillema.

    I think the best comparisson is Westbrook, down to the losing brand of basketball, but I think timvp is trying to use Spurs' related comparissons.

    I like Toppin over him, but I like him over anyone besides Obi and Wiseman. I haven't watch much of him at all or know anything about his character though. That might change.

    Yeah, I keep it Spurs related. Obviously TP isn't that good of a comp but not many guards in Spurs history have played the role of offensive engine that Edwards could play if he pans out and buys in.

    Haven't loved what I see from Edwards' penetration. To me, that's the most important thing the Spurs need on the perimeter. Sure, talent trumps all, and you don't worry about your top pick fitting with other players, but if the goal is a functional offense with room to grow, then having a guy who plays like White 2.0 isn't the greatest thing.

    Would he fit more into the Andrew Wiggins mold? based on personality, sounds like he has no motor. Disappears. Doesn't impact winning. If we are lucky to be top 4 and he's there, not gonna question it. Talent is there.

    His advanced stats are pretty unimpressive for a guy being considered as a potential #1 draft pick. Last year, Zion's numbers showed him to be a man among boys in college, but this guy's numbers show a scary amount of red flags: questionable shot selection, inefficiency, poor assist to turnover ratio, limited influence on winning... I'd be really afraid to use a #1 or #2 pick on him.

    This. He strikes me as a lower character D-Wade. Or on the low end, Dion Waiters.
