    Could also see the Spurs passing on a PG altogether and signing a vet PG for this season in hopes that they can land Nolan Traoré in next year's draft tbh. Not a really a fan of putting all your eggs in one basket so to speak, but I guarantee he's all over the Spurs radar already. A 6'4+ multi-dimensional PG who plays great defense, can pass, shoot, attack the basket, play both on and off-ball, and who also excels in PnR is PATFO's wet dream (and any NBA front office's tbh). He's going to be a hot commodity in next year's draft imo.


    Bruno, Pauleta can we get a first hand Frenchy report?

    Would seem Tony Parker would be 411 for the Spurs.
    For that matter Wemby himself may be familiar.
    Is this guy worth waiting for to match with Wemby?

    He’s legit. Been really coming on as of late. Has a really advanced game for a 17 year-old. NBA Draft Room currently has him projected as the #2 pick in next year’s draft. Washington would select him with the #2 pick this year if he were draft eligible imo.

    Will be pretty disappointing if we’re bad enough this year to get him Atlanta falling apart and us getting this dude is the ultimate pipe dream.

    Yeah I am smoking the same thing as him and Wemby would be game over for NBA

    We really need to hope the Hawks implode, land in the bottom 10 and somehow get into the top 5 of the 2025 draft. If we nail our picks now and can get a lottery pick in 2025 it‘s a wrap for the league

    Spurs will likely suck again next year tbh. Maybe not as bad as we did this year, but we should definitely be a bottom-8 team. More importantly, we really need Atlanta to suck next year. The 2025 Class looks like it's going to be stacked compared to this class. Lots of really good Guard and Wing prospects coming out next year, so having 2 top-10 picks would be stellar for us tbh. I'm super high on this kid though. He'd be the perfect PG next to Wemby tbh.

    Traoré has some Jamal Murray in him too. Similar size and the form on his jumper looks really similar to Murray's as well. He already has that pull-up midrange game like Murray does, and just the way he makes defenses pay if they go under the screen. He's like a more explosive, better passing, better defending Jamal Murray. I think he's gonna be special the next level tbh.

    Despite the solid-looking form on his jumper, he definitely needs to improve both his FG% and FT%, as most 16-17 year-olds do. He’s likely relied on his athleticism and explosive first step to get him to this point in his career. But those are things that can be improved upon. His advanced feel for the game cannot be taught.

    Spoiler alert: ATL been shopping Trae for a year and will continue to do so, which is going to affect his morale. ATL won’t be good next year. They have to move Trae before 2025, or risk getting literal pennies on the dollar for a rental, with his 2026 opt out looming. The worst thing that could happen for us is that they move him quickly. They were better when he was out last year after the ASG.

    Traore is going top 5 unfortunately. Maybe if the old man dusts off Point Sochan again tbh.

    He looks great for his age, and he's getting that same bump now that Nikola Topic got after his fast start last Fall... but if you're worried about Topic's 3 point shot, you'll probably have similar concerns for Traore's, and Topic so far is a much better free throw shooter.

    Yes the defenses he is facing are low level.

    Much needs to be revealed as he levels up.

    The team he just dropped 45/9 on is from Spain.

    For the record, Nikola Topic had 49 pts & 12 assists in this same tournament last year.

    Sure, let's wait and see how he developps next season.

    But can't you already see a difference in their athleticism or mobility? He really checks a lot more boxes than Topic for the NBA game

    Armel Traore (a very athletic player) played with Victor last year at the Mets, so I guess the two know each other (Victor never played at INSEP though). And Armel is entering the draft this year if he hasn't withdrawn his name. Maybe a way to coax him... Some fans are already talking about him as a Tony Parker with a three-point shot.

    The question currently is what choice he will make for next year. NCAA, Saint-Quentin, a Euroleague team in France, in Europe. Or even if he will be selected for the Olympic Games (he is a training partner, but who knows, the PG situation for the FNT is problematic...).

    Topic has been pretty consistent through the whole mock process as far as being in the top 3 - Yeah, this year is weak but the only reason he is not mocked so high is because of his knee injury

    The Spanish ACB league is the second best league in the world. He’s not dropping 45/9 on chumps.

    For precision, that 45 pt game isn't against Barcelona pro ACB team, that's Barcelona youth team. That remains impressive but he's playing vs other teens, all under 18, in that game.
