    See, picking JJ would also cause meltdowns, so it checks out on that front, too.
    Nothing to compared to the meltdown if they somehow end up with Kai Jones.

    Along with Kispet, Kevin O'Connor mocked at 41:

    Drafting Begarin would be a big swing on a point guard who accelerates like a Tesla. He needs to refine some raw areas of his game, but the Spurs’ developmental system could do him wonders.

    Fast, explosive guard who can attack downhill, but at this stage is still an inefficient and inconsistent player.

    PLUSES

    Above-the-rim finisher who can dunk in traffic. He accelerates quickly and fluidly changes directions with the ball in his hands. If his game clicks, he’ll draw a ton of fouls.

    Displays good passing vision, though he needs to improve the accuracy of his passes.

    Flashes lockdown ability as an on-ball defender thanks to his strong frame, 7-foot wingspan, and agility.

    Impactful off-ball defender when he’s in the right position; he’s so bouncy that he’s a threat to block shots from the weak side.

    MINUSES

    Streaky shooter who lacks touch in the paint and from the free throw line. He has stiff mechanics shooting off the catch and needs to make changes.

    Shot selection: He loves midrange jumpers even though it’s not a great shot for him.

    Defensive fundamentals require improvement to complement his physical profile.

    Lacks awareness defending off-ball. He makes too many mistakes, either because he’s ball-watching or just doesn’t know where to be.

    Bouknight, Moody or Kuminga at 12.

    Agreed. I had him at #41 for the Spurs in the "Second Round" thread:

    Juhann Begarin might be the best value at 41 if he's there. 6'5" young (18.9 years old) combo guard from France. (Would guess Parker has weighed in with the FO on this guy.)

    My bias is toward upside (at this point in the Spurs path) and this guy has it.

    First, he's an absolute dog on defense and that short-circuits potential concerns in several other areas, e.g., motor, at ude, etc.

    He's also both creative and efficient in creating his own offense and he can pass too.

    Shooting numbers aren't great -- 456% 2-point, 342% 3-point, 613% FT. But he meets the eye test, he adjusts on the fly going to the hoop (hard to teach), has a smooth release on the jumper, and moves athletically but smoothly about the court. Chip can address the rest.

    I'm kind of surprised he isn't higher on most mocks. NBADraft.net has him at 43, Tankathon 36, some don't list him at all, almost none have him in in the first round.

    In short, this guy looks a lot better than most of the post-Parker French prospects the Spurs have taken over the years that seemed to be reaches even at the time. If they took those guys, why wouldn't they take this guy who doesn't look like a reach at all at 41.

    The Reddish and #20 to move into the late lottery is intriguing to me. Could then hope Kai Jones slides to #20 or take Isaiah Jackson there. Having Reddish might help in money-whipping Collins as well with a young ex-teammate.

    What are the concerns about his at ude and motor? That doesn't sound good.

    If Sengun or whoever their prime target(s) are, is off the board at 12, they should look to do 12 for Reddish and 20.

    Since the Lakers appear to prefer Hield to DeRozan, Kuzma and 22 is probably out. But if Kuzma goes to the Kings and they retain 9 and get Wagner, they could be more amendable to moving Barnes (and Wright for Vassell?).

    They should also try to get involved in a 3 teamer with the 76ers (signed and traded Lowry, White, Vassell, protected Raptors and Spurs 1sts) and Raptors (Simmons) for the 4th pick (obviously Suggs) and Hill.

    They potentially exist with any player (at least in theory) -- the point of my comment was they don't exist in his case.

    Oh, I see what you meant. Okay -- yeah, I don't know much about him but motor didn't seem to be an issue.

    First five make a lot of sense. IMO, Kuminga goes 6. OKC just seems too perfect of a spot for him. They don't want to win now and they want to take a big swing on future upside. Kuminga is a perfect fit in both regards -- he'll help you lose now but might be a star down the line.

    Bouknight was the one high-end guy I thought might have a slim reed of a chance of falling to the Spurs . . .

    I'm overly partial to athleticism, to potential (the so-called "fanboy" bias ), but I draw the line at dogs. Kuminga seems like dog to me.

    wonder what about mobley to cavs? imo they have to take him with 3rd pick but they traded for jarrett allen for a reason.

    Rumors are Giddey to OKC, which I can see over Bouknight or Kuminga.

    Boo. Was holding out a tiny bit of hope that he’d fall to 12

    Assuming we stay at #12 I'm thinking it's gonna be Kispert.
