    Re: Franz Wagner

    New podcast went up - An interview with the man himself. No national team commitment. If there is a draft promise, heís as covert as they come.
    Havenít listened in full yet, just reading some excerptsÖ.

    https://mgoblue.com/news/2021/6/16/m...ro-career.aspx

    In getting ready for the next level, Wagner said he's trying to improve his all-around game while also zeroing in on specific aspects that he feels need to be much better when it's time to suit up in the league.

    "One of the things Iíve gotta get better at is shooting, and itís going to be a main part of those workouts, too," Wagner revealed. "So that fits in well with what Iíve gotta do in those workouts and my own workouts now. Thatís been a big emphasis. And then obviously getting in the right shape ó thatís something a lot of teams look at. Those are the main things Iím working on now.

    "I also want to show that I can do stuff with the ball, and not just be an off-the-ball player. Iím working on stuff like dribbling, my ball handling and making decisions with the ball. Thatís one thing I can help myself in the draft and at the next level, showing that I can do that as well."

    Thatís why they have a combine. I know heís not going, but thatís where the rubber meets the road. You find out exact physical, and workout measurements.
    Yep, unfortunately, neither Giddey nor Sengun will be there. I'd like to see trustworthy measurements on both of them.

    Wiskamp is a nice secound round, really good shooter.

    The spurs also workout Jordan Hall.

    Apparently Jordan Hall is a point forward. Spurs trying to set a performance benchmark for other highly touted point forwards in the draft?

    I donít think there is any REAL interest in drafting players like Hall. I think theyíre doing it to see how other players compare. That way you can eliminate average talent or be able to distinguish special ones from average ones.

    Or possibly pick them up as undrafted free agents . . .

    They work out players they think they can get for Austin. Anyone they’re seriously interested in, you’ll never hear about them working out.

    On any different year, sure. They have money to spend this year and finding undrafted players to sign is usually something they would do if they wanted to go cheap. As of now, there is a lack of flexibility as far as roster space so they can’t really go looking at undrafted free agents when they will probably use their cap space on vets and other players in the offseason.

    I don’t think it’s even that. None of the players from this past season’s Austin team were revealed to work out with the Spurs during the pre-draft period. Not Kylor Kelley, Mathis, etc. No one from the previous year either. Could be wrong but that’s how I remember it.

    Australia will have a good options for its "Boomers" men’s Olympic basketball team from among its 19 finalists. The final 12-player team will play exhibitions against the U.S., Nigeria and Argentina in Las Vegas before departing for Tokyo & the Summer Games:

    Yeah I been down with Wiskamp for awhile really like his game kinda reminds me of Wagner - He is a very good shooter and a good defender and has good handles.

    I wish the Spurs had two Top 15 picks in this draft. Lots of talent. I would love Bouknight. Spurs need a scorer like that.

    Wish the Spurs could package 1 of Murray/White and Poeltl to get another pick.

    SB Nation put out their pre-lottery mock draft. Guess they don't think much of Alparen Sengun

    I think it's hard to figure out the inner workings of this . Lots of variables. An under appreciated aspect is how much of this is to appease and placate bag agents, not saying that's the primary reason, but there's lots of things with the Spurs that are never fully revealed, obviously. Having said that, I'm glad we're looking at shooters and point forwardsóto me, perhaps the two most pressing needs on the team.

    Didn’t work out, or even interview Kawhi. I think they went into lockdown mode after being punked with Batum and Gobert.

    About Keldon, coach Cal said that five teams passed on drafting him because he didn’t work out for them. He was projected late lottery. You can only work out so many times, because you risk injury each time. Bet those teams feel really stupid right now.

    The Celtics are trading Kemba Walker, the No. 16 overall pick in the 2021 draft and a 2025 second-round draft pick to Oklahoma City for Al Horford, Moses Brown and a 2023 second-round pick, sources tell ESPN.

    Brad Stevens’ first deal as President of Basketball Operations comes with Sam Presti, with whom he’s had a longtime friendship dating back to Butler days. Rare trade ahead of Chicago pre-draft combine, but sides got value they wanted now on a major deal.

    Boston gets financial flexibility moving off the $73M owed Walker with the return of Horford. OKC has three first-round picks in July now. Thunder can work with Walker on what’s next for him as they did with CP3, ‘Melo and Horford.

    7m Garuba is one of several international prospects vying for roster spots at the Tokyo Olympics, along with Josh Giddey (Australia), Alperen Sengun (Turkey), Filip Petrusev (Serbia) and Rokas Jokubaitis (Lithuania). None of these players will be at the NBA Combine for that reason.

    Jonathan Givony @DraftExpress


    The preliminary roster for Spain's Tokyo Olympics campaign is expected to be announced tomorrow. Lottery prospect Usman Garuba will be part of that group, a source told ESPN. Spain will conduct a training camp in Las Vegas along with Australia, Nigeria, Argentina and USA in July.


    Jonathan Givony @DraftExpress



    Sengun, Petrusev and Jokubaitis will need to help their teams make it to Tokyo through the FIBA Olympic qualifying tournaments, starting at the end of the month.
