    Spurs can't pass on this guy. Explosive offensive players are hard to find outside of the top draft picks. You have to pay a premium for the athletic scorers.

    Much easier to find solid defenders later.

    + he doesn't seem to be bothered by close-outs or contests at all
    + he has deep range
    + he has a clutch gene and is highly competetive
    + explosively athletic

    - he could be a munch

    He reminds me a bit of a young Carmelo although a bit smaller, same gametype and demeanor. However I have never been a fan of Melo because I always saw him as empty stats player so I don't know if that's a good thing lol

    He's possibly the safest "high ceiling" prospect we realistically have a shot at (I'm leaving out long term gambles like Dieng, Jovic, PBJ and Hardy), and I'll be satisfied if he's our first pick, though it isn't certain he'll be available at 9. That said, I don't think he's that far above the rest of the guys projected in the latter part of the lottery, at least not as far as value for the Spurs. And since I think we're more than one piece away, if we can't trade up for Banchero (be that with Houston or Sacramento) and get that star PF who can carry the offense, I'd consider trading down a bit (say 9 + 25 for 13 & 15) at the risk of losing Mathurin (or certainty, should I say), as long as we end up with one high potential guy (Johnny Davis/Jalen Williams) plus one combo forward to go along (Sochan/Eason).

    He's a guard. We love guards. All we draft is guards. Go for it

    Talented offensive player who is best playing off the ball. Great athlete who finishes well in transition. But thereís real questions about his defense. Think NOLA will be interested at 8. I expect him to go 7 or 8 and this board will melt down per par.

    Reminds me of a poor manís Jaylen Brown coming out of Cal. Similar builds, offensive games, and weaknesses.

    I also attended the game at the Dome against Houston in the Sweet 16 where he really struggled. But he also showed flashes of s om at other points this season (including against TCU in the tournament).

    I expect him to go earlier than #9. I don't see a lot of separation between him and Ivey. Different games, but same tier.

    The question seems to be: Is he (or anyone) good enough to trade up a few spots for?

    Depends on the player and cost to move up, tbh.

    I think you move up to top three if the price isn't too steep. IOW, are you giving up 2 FRPs and players, 3 FRPs and a pkayer, or 4 FRPs. Some of those scenarios are doable, some aren't.

    No, he's much more of an explosive athletic scorer to the rim. Walker doesn't have his athletic skills.

    I don't know how you can't see the differences between these two players.

    Agree, he is close to Ivey. Won't likely be there at 9 unfortunately. Explosive athletic scorers go at a high draft value. Defensive guys cost less.

    Because they would play the same role essentially on this team: a go-to scoring 2-guard.

    That comment was with regard to what his role on the team would be, not necessarily to say that they are the same player.

    One would be successful the other not because they don't have the same abilities. Spurs need to move from Walker, he's not the answer for the go to scoring 2-guard.
