    There’s nice and complimentary and then there’s glowing and excited. One example is watching the interview Duarte had with the Wizards and then with the Pacers. In the interview with the Wizards, his body language appeared engaged, his knowledge of the team more than basic, and his words were uplifting. Contrast that with his interview with the Pacers, where he is sitting back, giving short answers, and in a monotone voice. I’m not saying to have a strong takeaway from these interviews (it is just speculation, after all), I’m saying there’s a noticeable difference between the two and that’s what’s being pointed out.
    Well, no one wants to live in Indiana.

    i can see giddey legitimately wanting to wind up in GS. for one, he wouldn't have to be depended upon right away and would have time to develop while on a winning team (assuming klay can finally stay healthy) and he has also spent some time being mentored by andrew gaze.
    Giddey is known for pinpoint whip passes to perimeter spots for shooters.

    He's also like the anti- James Wiseman in that he's really smart in basketball terms and doesn't need to be taught how to dribble.

    Honestly he'd almost be a waste on the Spurs with no shooters to pass to.

    Friend of my cousin's neighbor said he spent the night at Pop's mansion and discussed good places to live to get to the practice facility easier. <\bluefont>

    If the Spurs end up selecting Kai, every draft year after this one seems like it will be easy to pin point who the Spurs are picking. Can it really be this obvious?

    It's always so hard to judge where young players will want to live, tbh. I'm constantly surprised at how popular Miami seems to be-- that's one of the last cities I'd ever want to live in. But New Orleans almost never gets shout-outs, which is also strange, as it's one of the most unique cities in the U.S. to me. I guess most 19/20 year olds about to become millionaires are probably more fascinated by ty EDM nightclubs and strip club variety than they are about anything resembling culture.

    Nice! Charlotte, please don't steal Kai from us. He is a Spur made in heaven! Calm, humble, smart, team player and yet competes hard. By the way, just learned that his high school GPA is 4.2. How can such a smart and hard working guy won't improve quickly? The chance is low. In addition to his height and athleticism, he already has a 3 pt shot with high release. He should be able to contribute in the second half of the season.

    Usually they're very secretive but they were quite obvious with the Samanic love-in for example.

    for sure if Kai is available and the Spurs dont select him, we need to record it to our SpursTalk notes to refer to for the future how the Spurs operate

    I'm guessing if we DO go with Kai that Collins is a no-go? I'm still on the dream of Giddey/Collins.

    as much as Iím lower on Kai than other prospects, Iíd much rather try to develop him than overpay Collins

    I want Sengun at 12 AND Collins.

    Sengun as the effective bench scoring big, like a Scola or Portis this year, but even better as a scorer, a more aggressive 2014 Diaw. I think his defense can improve to average, just like how Collins has gone from bad to average or even above average as he makes playoffs game saving blocks.

    And Collins as the starter with Poeltl.

    Call me crazy, but Sengun has interior post moves that remind me of the old Celtics PF Kevin McHale. And McHale will always be an acknowledged master of interior post moves. However, McHale was 30 pound lighter and moved quickly enough to be a Ist all Defensive team selection 3 times. Doubtful Sengun will get anywhere near that level. He could replace Drew on the roster??? Playing with a Center who is pretty athletic defender able to cover for Sengun's lapses, I could see him getting some minutes next year. Any improvement in his outside shooting would be icing on the cake as he develops.

    How about a line up across the front of Sengun at point PF, Poertl at Center, and Saminac at point SF. I left Poertl on there because we don't have anyone on the roster that can come close to replacing him. Maybe one of the other prospects in the mix at 12 is the center we are looking for. I haven't started studying any of the other likely players at 12 so I don't have a feel for him in comparison to them. But if he is there and nobody better is there, I'd say he is a good viable pick at 12. (praying for some upside for the 18 y.o. can't hurt.)

    I think when we were selecting at the end of the first round, there were fewer options, and they had to be more secretive. Now, thereís probably 5-6 players they want who could be there at 12.

    What, your cousin's neighbor spent the night with Pop discussing fasted ways to get to the Spurs practice facility?? Good info man from an anonymous source. Just kidding ya, Man, didn't mean it as a flame. We have too much of that around here.

    Imo the Spurs aren't that stupid to take Kai at 12 but have him if they trade down. Also taking a guy out to dinner doesn't mean you want to him. Could also be smokescreen to encourage an earlier team like Charlotte to bite. Not the dinner part but the info leak.
