    IK people will slam me for this, but I think we should draft Tony Mitchell, ik he is raw, but I still think he would be an upgrade over the Hansbrough we saw in the playoffs, and he also has a very high ceiling, I also really like Tim Hardaway Jr. and Isaiah Canaan though

    Archie Goodwin is intriguing as a potential 2nd round trade up ( or bought pick). It appears that most of his obvious flaws can be fixed with proper development, and he seems to have a good work ethic based on reports.
    BJ Young is also intriguing as a long term project. He's currently slated to go #58 to the Spurs.

    I'd take the 8-10 PPG from Dieng as a b/u. I see Dieng as Mahinmi's replacement in a year or two. That would make him 25-26 and young enough to keep contributing for many years to come. In this draft, I'm not expecting a Granger, Hibbert, or a Paul George, but someone who can come in and contribute. Even start in a "need be capacity" down the road "if necessary". IOW, Mahinmi but a much better overall player.
    Yeah, I'm more encouraged by Dieng's progress just over the past year (he said he's only been playing for six years) than I'm concerned about his age.

    *SLAM* because of Tony Mitchell, but I'd be ok with Hardaway and Canaan.

    If Mitchell has a good work ethic, I'd say he should be on top of the Pacers draft board. If he doesn't, then talking about his potential is..... irrelevant.....

    Ricky Ledo reminds me of Lance Stephenson with a good jumper. He'd be perfect for the Bulls but I doubt he gets drafted before #25. Maybe the Knicks might draft him at #24 though. Just a personal feeling but he could become a top 5 player in this draft. If he'd have played at Providence he would have probably been talked about as a top 6 pick in the tier of Noel, Mclemore, Porter, Bennett, and Olidipo.

    Although, he would have to get drafted to the right team considering his character concerns, much like Lance had too. The Spurs at #28 seem like a good fit.

    Judging by the one game I saw him play, I think we should draft Jack Taylor from Grinnell College. The guy is a very good shooter, and the fans were just going crazy after every shot he made towards the end of the game. He was so dominant offensively that it seemed like he was taking all the shots and scored over 100 points. In fact, he was so dominant he was actually dominate. I'm surprised nobody is talking about him, but I think I found a real gem, guys. I noticed that he has a habit of staying on the offensive half of the court, however, which will probably not work in the NBA. Other than that, you'd be hard-pressed to beat a 5'10'' shooting guard with this guy's skills. I haven't been this sure of a pick since Tanguy Ngombo.

    If Mitchell has a low BBIQ, I'd say pass. I'm tired of watching dumb *** players like Tyler and Green. They make me cringe every time they are on the court. From being a complete black hole on offense, to not being in the correct spot on defense (lack of help defense, etc). Just, no!

    I do like Mitchell as a prospect, but how's is BBIQ?

    I'd agree with you about Mitchell but not about Tyler H and G Green having similar issues.

    G Green seems incredibly athletically gifted and very much BB IQ-challenged.

    While Tyler is not a genius in his BB IQ, his issue seems to be in being very athletically challenged for an NBA PF.

    According to ESPN:
    CJ McCollum

    23.9 PPG
    2.9 APG
    52 3PT%

    McCollum is the sleeper here. A number of teams really like him, but he's yet to emerge atop their boards. He's completed workouts with the Magic, Suns, Kings and Blazers. He also has the Jazz, 76ers, Pacers and Timberwolves coming up. In particular, the Suns and Blazers look like two terrific options. Both teams are looking for scoring guards who can shoot and get to the basket. Right now, McCollum could be drafted in the Nos. 5-10 range.

    The Pacers! Sweet. I would be thrilled to get this kid in a Pacer uni.

    I wonder if the Pacers have a deal set up like the Spurs trade where if McCollum falls to a certain point the trade goes into effect. Only this year we are the ones getting the draft pick. I think McCollum is the Lilliard of the draft, and I would absolutely love to have him.

    A couple interesting stretch type guys working out for the P's tomorrow. Kadji and Watford both.

    I actually think CWat in the 2nd round could make some sense for us.

    Most mocks have CWat undrafted. I was thinking of him as a very high quality UDFA for summer league. Another UDFA signee of note would be Sherwood Brown of Florida Gulf Coast.

    Probably will depend on workout, I gotta say the way Danny Green is playing can't hurt a guy like Kadji or CWat. Cwat isn't the athlete Green is, but he could be the shooter.

    I really don't see Watford as an NBA player.

    I don't really either, but I would be willing to give that type of a guy a shot as a shooter off the bench.

    McCollum would be a perfect fit for the Pacers. Not a true point guard but we don't need one. He'd be the perfect scorer coming off the bench. The thing is though, what would we trade too draft him? Perhaps in a Granger deal with the Bucks at 15 or the Mavs at 13.

    Yes, he'd be a perfect fit. But he's supposed to go top 10. How are the Pacers going to swing something to get a top 10 pick? I just don't see it. I would say Granger + Lance. Then you'd have to find a team that has a high enough pick. Would NO do that? Probably wouldn't want EJ and Granger together.

    Just don't see how it would be possible.

    The one team that I would be excited to see him get drafted too is the Trailblazers. Lillard and CJ? That's insane. Lillard goes out and CJ comes in. Opposing pgs are going to hate playing the Trailblazers. lol

    I totally disagree that is blasphemy to Lillard . I scouted both of them, and Lillard is on a different planet than CJ IMO. CJ rarely makes the right play especially in traffic. Damian was a rare guy he hardly ever made a bad read and could shoot for days as well as blow by his man off the bounce.

    CJ will be a solid pro IMO as a combo guard. I don't think he will ever be considered a pg. He has major holes in his game for that to serious help for that to occur. He will be a guy who can get to the rim a bit and a solid spot up shooter. I think he is closer to a Gary Neal type of guy or Jason Terry than a great pg in Lillard. The one thing I do love about CJ is the way he finishes left. He has a great left hand and finishes through contact better than most. Lillard was also much quicker than CJ IMO. I think athletically CJ is just average in terms of NBA guys. I think that will hurt him in beating his man off the dribble. I also fear him as a defender not to sure he will be league average in that area.

    I can see the Lakers drafting Kadji, Watford is not an NBA player like others have said. He is just way to poor laterally.

    I don't see the Pacers trading up into the top ten for anybody. If they trade up it will probably be with Dallas for a future pick.
