    I know it's way too early and along with the vast majority of Spurs fans I hope we'll land one of the first two picks so we get our hands on Victor or Scoot, but how good will the next draft be in general? How good is the talent level beside these two?
    Admittedly I have next to none knowledge about college ball and I don't know who to keep an eye on. So for all the guys here who follow the NCAA closely, who are guys worth taking if the lottery balls don't fall our way?

    Thanks for sharing some insight.

    I'd have Nick Smith as the best college player and likely the 3rd pick although Amen Thompson from G League Elite could jump ahead of him. Amen is possibly even a better athlete than Scoot but he has to be more consistent with his shot; he's an excellent playmaker though. Cam Whitmore from Villanova probably rounds out the top 5. He's a very solid 6'7" wing with excellent all-around skills. Duke has a 6'7" guard that bears watching as well.

    Season will begin on November 7.
    And this is not the best place to ask about predictions and estimates of players' potential.

    Aren't there a pair of twins that are supposed to be pretty good too?

    I'd say the top 6 are all better than the consensus top 3 this year... but the top 2 are head and shoulders above the rest.

    Even with the worst record in the league, the Spurs would still be almost three times as likely to pick outside the top 2 as inside it. It's definitely not a good idea to get hung up on getting a top 2 pick, no matter how good they are.

    Because hope is an opiate
    Just let us indulge m8, it pretty much all that's gonna keep us going this season.

    He’s from Krypton University, and supposedly can really fly.

    Youíre confusing gleague Ignite with Overtime Elite, which is pure trash. They play absolutely no one.

    Keyonte George is an absolute bucket. If the Spurs lack a go-to scorer with good size, they could do worse than Key.

    Thompson brothers, GG Jackson, Keyonte George, Whitehead…. It’s a bunch of good to really good prospects in this draft. We need to get another mid pick 1st if possible

    Before the start of last season, Caleb Houston and Jaden Hardy were listed as lottery picks in the mocks. And where did they end up on draft night?
    Most would not have been able to predict the progress of Jaden Ivey and Keegan Murray, just as they overlooked Ja Morant before the start of the 18/19 season.
    School highlights and early mocks are garbage.
    And why interview local basketball experts? Many people here have been watching basketball for decades and still manage to overreact, draw some long-term conclusions and give advice during games.

    the post wasn't about the g league. it was a response to what other "projects" bear watching outside of the top two picks. thompson, who does play for Elite, is one of those players. nothing else to read into here. i'm not saying one way or the other what i personally think of amen or his twin brother.

    Also great point earlier about Houstan and Jaden Ivey. Both top 5-10 in prelim mocks and fell hard in reality. Wonder who the 23 risers and fallers will end up being?

    George may lead Baylor in scoring, and they're going to make a deep tourney run. I think he'll be a riser.
