    Ziaire Williams had a poor outing last night against Mobley's team. He was 1 for 8 fg, 4 turnovers, and barely contributed anywhere else. I believe the game was on national TV. I see his stock dropping by a ton. This is looking more like a weak draft class.

    Still strong at the top. There are 5 franchise level guys compared to last years 1.

    Stretch big - possible backup at PF/C - Jeremiah Robinson-Earl



    His stock has been rising lately. Looks quicker than your average big.

    I see 11 blue fonts - so 11 on the roster + 2 draft picks = 13 slots taken up. Add to this DMDR (I'd only want him if he's giving a BIG discount) and we are at 14. That leaves us 1 FA to pursue or to leave open depending on where we sit with the luxury tax. Not sure if KBD could be on a 2-way, but that would wrap up our 2-ways as well.

    So not really much of a shot at having an eventful off season in signings, but that is how we roll around here. Now we just need an analysis on how this falls out salary-wise and how much we have to sign DMDR and any FA (I'm assuming the mid-level exception for any FA).

    If DMDR falls through, then Collins is a possibility, but I don't want to pay max on him either.

    Seems like the focus really needs to be on Wing, Big Wing, and Athletic Forward in the draft.
    Lyles is an unrestricted free agent who until a week ago was out of the rotation. Far from a lock to return

    good length. Can set screens, roll, pop and fire, face the ball up, rebounds. The 3pt% leaves a bit to be desired but the mechanics seem to be there already. Nova has also produced some stud NBA players recently.

    gotta love the pool of ~69 wing/bigs who can stretch the floor and face it up.

    Jalen Johnson is likely off the board when we pick, but that leaves Jones, Wagner, Brown, dudes like Robinson earl who are climbing and producing as the tournament approaches. Seems like another good draft to get a piece at a position of need around pick 15-20

    Stretch Big - Filip Petrusev





    This guy is dominating his league right now. Very interesting prospect. He glides to the basket like an athletic forward. Very skilled.

    If Patty is traded or leaves in free agency, I think a volume 3 pt shooter will be the biggest need for the team to replace. I really like Nah'Shon "Bones" Hyland as a potential replacement for Patty in the draft this year, and he should be available in the late first. He's got insane range with an ability to shoot off the catch or the dribble. He's also a decent driver and finisher as well as solid defensively. He's not a great distributor but then again neither is Patty. Here's a more in-depth scouting report from last year and some highlights from this year.

    Not bad. I would love to find a Immanuel Quickley late in the draft. The Knicks got a major steal in Quickley. Dude has loads of potential and is fun to watch.

    Trendon has been killing it lately. His stock must be rising. Looks like a DeMar-lite out there, spin move after spin move. Looks slow as though.

    positions, our most pressing need is a bonafide franchise cornerstone Superstar who's likely to stay loyal to small market Franchise. If PATO thinks that Primo has the best chance of becoming that player then you draft him. It's really that simple.

    And that's probably what they think. I'm just laying out what we have on the roster front.

    Here's some tidbits from Brian Wright last night:

    Brian Wright says Pop loves Millsap and the team needs his veteran presence. He deserves 45 million over the next 3 years

    I think the Spurs need to swing for the fences & draft a player who MIGHT turn out to be a superstar in 4 years or so....even if it means stashing him in Austin next season. If he's a baby, so be it. The present be damned.

    The draft position and the team need one could argue necessitated a pick that could contribute immediately
