    If you want that instant spark on offense that are legit shooters;

    Terquavion Smith - 6’3 PG/SG - Super fast and very good shooter

    Gradey - 6’7 SF - Might be the best 3 baller in this draft

    That's my biggest concern for the Thompson's , OTE is a very very low level league.
    I was very wary of taking Sharpe for this very reason, his achievements had been against much lower compe ion and there was next to no reliable evidence to judge him by. However, Portland did their due diligence (even having Lillard in his workout to assess him) and it seems clear they didn't screw up by taking him.
    So my point is: if our pick ends up not in the expected range and the Thompson twins slip as a result of OTE related concerns, they may end up one of the better options for us our turn comes. It's a bigger risk, but if they work them out extensively and they check out, the potential reward may be too much to pass up.

    The big difference is the eye test Amen is 6’7 PG who is a Elite Athlete we are talking NBA athleticism and he had decent handles and ability to find the open man, and he can create his own shot. The only question for him is his shooting if he can show that he can do that he will definitely be in top 10 and maybe as high as 3 depends on team needs. If he can’t do that then he might go mid first early second.

    I do agree the league is but it’s pretty much just a big pre draft training camp so they do try to get these guys ready to do well in the draft workouts.

    Zoom Diallo

    Can the Spurs consider this guy just on name use for ST alone?

    2024 point guard Zoom Diallo plans unofficial visit to Gonzaga on September 9 – Score Zags Score

    I think what the Spurs ultimately go for in this draft is what they lost in Primo: a jumbo-sized playmaker

    i think having Jordan Hall around serves as a filler in practice for that type of player so the other guys become accustomed to it.

    If there is a Josh Giddey, Dyson Daniels, Cade Cunningham, Scottie Barnes - esque player in this upcoming draft, then that should be the guy IMO

    it wouldnt disrupt Tre’s development (not that they’re building around him) but it would be the kind of pick where it just fits with everybody, just like how Sochan is ending up. This jumbo playmaker would be able to play with Sochan and everyone on the team. Solves the backup PG issue while still being versatile in lineups.

    I'm hoping Blake solves the backup pg issues. As for the draft I do think you're right about what we target unless we strike gold and get the top pick.

    Oh i dont think my hypothetical player replaces Blake either. I think the position he’ll play would be 3/4 but with a lot of playmaking ability. The depth behind Sochan is so bad that this player would solve that too. KBD and Roby are both playing turrible.

    Gotcha... I'm still hoping for that alpha at the top of the draft but we aren't up in that top 5 or 6 I do think we probably adjust to quality depth. I really (for the first time since nephew was here) feel like we're actually building something and we only need 3 things to really compete... 1) a true alpha, 2) a little better depth in a couple spots, and 3) experience for the young guys.

    I love watching this team..

    Keyonte George from Baylor. He’s not exactly a 1 but it might end up being his position. Nick Smith could be similar as well.

    I'm pretty high on Nick Smith... he's probably 3 or 4 in this draft imo right now

    I hope so. While it's probably not enough to get them into the 17-30 pick range so that their first conveys this year, it should cause them to end the season with a better record than the Spurs.

    Looking at the draft it seems more likely that we will probably fall in the 5 to 11 range - So if they think Keyonte can play some PG or has the ability to handle the ball and facilitate the offense then he fits need and fits best talent I am just scarred of taking a tweener.

    Beside Keyonte only other players that I like and I think will be in that range would be;

    Amen Thompson - PG
    Wallace - PG

    Cam Whitmore - SF/SG
    Brandon Miller - SF
    GG Jackson - PF

    Brandon Miller is my early favorite. Tall, can handle with his left or right, score from anywhere, just a lot of talent overall. Would fit in excellent with this team. Spurs would be able to play BIG without missing a beat.

    Wouldn't be a bad pick if we're outside the top 10..which is a real possibility..

    I don’t think he lasts past pick 7-8.

    By this time last year Patrick Baldwin Jr was a top 5 pick. No such thing as a “bad or good pick” right now, except the obvious #1.

    So true and I know most of us are looking at one and done players for this draft but they still some very talented second year players need to look at. For instances 2022 draft picks picks 4 through 6 were all second year players whose game improved dramatically;

    Jaden Ivey
    Keegan Murray
    Ben Mathurian

    It's obviously fluid and will change as we get more data (just like my personal board will change as I get more data) but as of today it's a good pick outside the top 10 on my board...

    My darkhorse pick

    If he’s anything like one of my favorite players (Jrue Holiday) … take him.
