    If they both are gonna suck at defense, I see nothing about Topic that makes me want to pick him above Dilly

    Topic's likely to suck much less; he might end up being decent to good. Dillingham is undersized even for a point (as in smaller than Trae Young); physically he is outmatched no matter who he's matched up against in the NBA. Topic is reportedly 6'6" and 7'0" wingspan - big enough to cover 2's and have a shot against 3's... Even if he's smaller than reported (say 6'4" and 6'9" WS), that's still good size at PG. Also, he's 18; Topic will probably get better at defending with experience. Especially if the coach pushes him...

    Yeah, I don’t think Topic will ever be looked as a stopper but I think he can hold his own with most PG in the league. It sucks that he got injured but it might help him as starting on a brand new team has to be pretty hard for any player much less the team leader - PG. Can someone let us now how long the season is with his new team?

    Our team needs medium-elite thugs. We have never won without them.

    On that note, if we do draft him, someone needs to start his shrine thread:

    I hope this isn’t what we’re wasting a year of Wemby’s career trying to tank for.

    Wanted to bump this thread because it reminded me of how highly regarded Topic was pre-injury. Of course, he's fallen off most big boards since then due to health concerns. But at his best, he really was viewed as one of the top-tier prospects in this draft, as OP's post so eloquently reminds us.

    It's also worth remembering that when evaluating prospects, it's important to evaluate their whole body of work, and not just the most recent developments.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Topic is the pick at 4 if Sarr, Risacher and Castle are off the board at 4.

    Gotta go Sheppard in this scenario.

    Topic should be available at 8.

    The #4 & #8 will be so heavily determined by the choices of other teams. Topic was square in discussion for #1 four months ago, but could now realistically fall to the Spurs at #8. It's funny how often a GM's reputation is set up by another GM's choice... One great example: Presti had Greg Oden #1 on his board, but was forced to take Durant after Portland's decision.

    Anyone have intel on him post injury?

    I definitely think the media will lever him up to the Top 5 again if he is able to work out again. And, yes, i think the Spurs' supposed "lack of interest" is BS lol

    The intel will come next week where he is supposed to be measured at treviso. Totally agree about the lack of interest

    Now that we have two picks and if we take a safer bet at 4 he could then make a decent dart throw at 8.

    Nice. I still think he’ll be a Spur. If he’s there at 8, they won’t be able to help themselves. And, if he performs decently well next week I think he’ll be in play at 4. We haven’t heard the last of this guy.

    I'm convinced the Spurs will draft Topic before both Dillingham and Sheppard.

    I concur. I think they would love to find a way to come away with 2 of Risacher, Topic, and Castle.

    And, realizing they may not be able to, Plan B for #8 will be the best of Saluan or Williams. Worst case on Saluan, if they miss, they can alway frame it as a “give to Wemby” with the whole French/personal connection.

    Topic at 4 and Cody at 8 feels like the cliched surprise picks they could go for in the end. But Brian does things different enough than RC so maybe not.

    Has anyone seen current news on Topic? I looked and didn't see anything. Last thing I heard was the knee would be ok by June and he'd be in the states for workouts.

    I think Castle or Sheppard at 4, and if Topic is BPA at 8 so be it.
