    like I said he's very advanced for his age. Nobody on our team can shoot 3s off the dribble like that. Most guys can't even shoot 35% from 3, let alone shake a defender and hit the pull up on a stepback
    Imagine how good he's going to look after playing his first two seasons in Austin!

    About the same he looks now, probably just with some added muscle mass. But yeah, no way Pop plays him on the big squad this season

    It also ties into their reasoning for continually drafting 6-4 to 6-6 players.

    Ok I got a little teary eyed when he mentioned his mom was born on the 12th and we drafted him as the 12th pick. The more I read and the more I watch tape of him the more I like this kid I can easily see how he started to move up in the draft and why teams and the Spurs liked him. He is definitely 100% Spurs material he has that Charisma that Keldon has I think those two will hit it off and the chemistry is going to be great on this team moving forward.

    I also think drafting him shows we are clearly on the rebuild it’s going to be interesting in what we do in free agency. Hopefully we are able to work out a trade with Derozz where we get either a young player or a draft pick - He’ll I am OK with getting an old vet on a one year bad contract if it gets us a good draft pick.

    One thing for sure is that Austin is going to be fun to go to watch our new draft picks from last year and this year play. Since we won’t be competing for a playoff I think will see a lot more of our draft picks get playing time then we have ever had. I think will finely get a good idea of what we have with our young core as Murray, White, Walker, Vassel, Luka, Tre, are all going to see major minutes.

    OP, do you have any insight into how involved RC Buford was in this draft selection?

    That Murray tweet reminded me of when Cousins had a negative public reaction to the drafting of Giorgios Papagiannis.

    A gm who might have been in over his head reaches in the late lottery and takes an 18 year old 20+ spots ahead of public projection, and gets roasted by his star player.

    Afterwards, his comments to the media play up how young the pick is and emphasizes that if the player had stayed another year, he would have been out of their reach the next year because they were so good and on that trajectory. The gm goes on to say that the player is or has the chance to be a future all-star.

    Let's hope that Brian Wright knows what he's doing in the draft and in 5 years we aren't reminiscing about Joshuos Primogiannis.

    On the bright side, the next 5 picks after Papagiannis were all scrubs or mediocre nobodies. If the next 5 picks after Primo end up the same, then no harm no foul

    Not really. We left a lot of talent on the board.

    If Sengun or Kai Jones or Jalen Johnson or any other number of players turn into a star, this pick is going to be a black mark on the organization.

    I thought I was kidding when I said the Spurs were going to reach for another guard with the #12 pick...but this is our reality. We now have 7 guard projects....Murray, White, Walker, Johnson, Jones, Primo, Wieskamp.

    Yes, some of them can theoretically slide into the SF spot...but how about drafting an actual ing small forward? Seemed to work pretty well when we picked up Kawhi.

    Maybe they see something I don't...or maybe we just wasted a lottery pick on the next Cory Joseph.

    i just hope he goes the vassel route and plays during his rookie year. Highly doubtful knowing pop but id be ecstatic. Still praying he has some tony parker mojo as an unexpected pick who comes outta nowhere to make an impact

    He's 18. He won't turn 19 until Christmas Eve. He only played 30 games for Alabama and averaged 8 points.

    I probably have a better chance of playing with the Spurs next season than our #12 pick in the draft does.

    People are way too attached to Kai and Sengun. Even Presti passed up on Sengun. Twice. That should tell you something.

    Time will tell.

    I'd love to be proven wrong, but I'm going on record now as saying that this pick was a mistake.

    If Primo becomes our guard of the future, I'll gladly eat crow.

    Presti had picks ahead of and passed on these players:

    Jimmy Butler, Khris Middleton, Giannis atentokunpo, Rudy Gobert, Nikola Jokic, Clint Capela, Draymond Green, Bogdan Bog, Bojan Bog, Derrick White, OG Anunoby, Keldon Johnson, Taj Gibson

    Presti is pretty good and has earned his rep, but he's passed on hall of famers, all stars, and quality starters for worse players like everyone else and has his own failures

    People never should have been attached to Kai Jones. People claiming he has "unlimited potential." That his upside is Antetokuonmpo. That he's a unicorn.

    These people are cracked in the head. His ceiling is remarkably low. He might catch some lobs and run full court for Charlotte and maybe block shots, but that's pretty much it.

    White was never a project, Jones isn't really either and Johnson and Wieskamp are SF's.

    Letís take a step backÖ

    which player(s) are you upset about the Spurs not drafting?

    if itís one player, like say Sengun, what led you to the conclusion that heís guaranteed to be something special? Is it your superior scouting skills? Or the consensus of mock drafts floating online? Next, you listed players that Presti had missed out on, so is it safe to say your scouting skills are perfect or the consensus of mock drafts have never been wrong?

    just working out your logic here. There are two separate hot topics about the draft:

    1) that there was definitely player or players that the Spurs missed the boat on
    2) they could have traded down (which has been disproven already by multiple reports)

    we are arguing point 1. Just to be clear.

    now, if weíre arguing playerS (plural), well itís not a stretch that there could be ONE good player out of six players that could become good that the Spurs passed up on. Youíre not actually making a hard prediction there.
