    Robert Williams of A&M is a dark horse getting a lot of buzz as a potential 1 and done.

    Loops like a young Shawn Kemp. Very good passing, long wingspan, great athleticism.

    Probably a lottery pick so not for the Pacers

    Miles Bridges would be a very good pick also. Strong, athletic and hard nosed player.

    I know he didn't do much for his stock this year, but OG's injury has him right in the Pacers' range according to the mocks.

    As someone who has watched him way more than I have, how's his basketball IQ and general feel for the game seem?

    It's good, didn't seem to notice it one way or the other. I think he still has some learning to do, and his offensive game (namely, his shooting) need quite a bit of work. I think he can play/defend 3 positions in the NBA, and probably some point guards as well.

    There's so much 3 and D potential in this draft . I hope Mikal Bridges declares because I'd love for the Pacers to pick him up somehow.

    Anyone interested in Harry Giles, or is he too risky? Guy would be a top 5 pick if he didn't get injured his last two years of HS. Definitely shaking off rust, and you never know if there are structural issues with the knee. However, if you get him where the Pacers pick it could turn into a huge win if he regains his form. Big risk, but potentially huge reward.

    Does Grayson Allen remind anyone else of Monta Ellis with a 3 point jumper?

    I'm all in on OG. I've worried about how his offense might translate but right from the start he's going to be a defensive monster. I just hope his knee injury won't affect him too much.

    old Monta Ellis, maybe. Young Monta Ellis, no. Monta was a blur when he came into the league. Not the half speed guy we see now.

    OG is not coming out this year and I would take Myles Bridges any day over him. In the second I would take Nigel Hayes as a smart 6'8" 240 guy who is hard nosed.

    I'm a fan of Terrance Ferguson with a pick in the mid-late teens. I think it's usually wise to take the guy with a high floor in that range, so many athletic busts in this range.

    Pure shooter, decent size, but most importantly, great intangibles and a commitment to playing defense. Not a superstar, but probably your starting shooting guard for the next 10-12 years.

    Bridges would be a perfect fit next to PG. Get a veteran rebounding center and the team is much better.

    The Pacers have to get Jamel Artis somehow. He's one of those rare wings with above average ball handling and a great jumpshot. If he goes unddrafted there's no doubt he's going to be some teams Josh Richardson.

    There are so many players with great potential late in the first round. I'd love to pick up some extra picks this year.

    Ike Anigbogu, UCLA - This guy is very raw offensively right now, but has a huge ceiling. Kinda reminds me of a Hassan Whiteside or DeAndre Jordan type where you see the potential, but most teams don't wanna wait around for it. Right now the kid is still only 18 and will be on draft day as well. He's also very strong for an 18 year old and could fill out into one of the stronger players in the NBA. Great athleticism though and if developed right could be a player similar to Whiteside/Jordan.

    Andrew Jones, Texas - I have a feeling this guy is just going to get misused in the NBA. He is still pretty raw at this stage, but again, very high ceiling. This guy can be special though if an NBA team is willing to take the time to let him learn the PG position. It won't happen immediately for him at PG, but he has a ton of potential here. That said, I can see a team getting lazy with him and just playing him at 2 guard, which just offers zero advantages. He needs to improve his shot still, but with his size(if at PG) and athleticism, this guy could be very good.

    I feel if we could get him, that would instantly be helping out PG, even if he is not scoring he is a guy doing all the dirty work.

    Good thing is he also has an offensive game as well, and can work in and out.

    Very strong, mobile and athletic. Because of this he can finish when he gets bumped. PG really struggles with that.
