    Any player not listed did not get a draftable grade from me (I only give out 60 a year).

    Thanks for reading, questions/comments/concerns are welcomed

    why so low on Mark Williams and Walker Kessler?

    Mark Williams - Don't think he offers much upside other than being a league-average rim runner, which isn't necessarily a very valuable player in today's league

    Walker Kessler - He's completely immobile and can't shoot, people love the shot blocking numbers but CBB generally has terrible spacing which leads to increased (contested) shot attempts at the rim, which obviously provides for more block opportunities. I don't think he can survive in an NBA defense

    @Unity

    What are your thoughts on these

    https://www.betonline.ag/sportsbook/futures-and-props/nba-draft/draft-position

    Don't really have any strong opinions on any of them, a lot of info has been kept under wraps this year and there haven't been many rumors swirling around aside from the Kings pick.

    From what I've gathered on social media, Shaedon Sharpe could be slipping. I don't think over 8 is the worst bet there, but at that point you'd have to be putting stock into rumors that could be unsubstantiated. Apparently teams aren't pleased with the mystery surrounding him and his lack of workouts/team play on film if that makes sense. Plus since you get the number 8 without a decimal here, you get a push if he ends up exactly in that spot.

    Tari is a guy that I'm incredibly high on relative to the field, I think his number is in a pretty good spot at 17.5 and although I'd like to see him get drafted higher than that I could see him falling as far as the mid 20s realistically.

    Ousmane Dieng being mocked to the Thunder at 12 might be the reason for his number being so low (13.5 at -170 is kind of insane) but I don't like that for two reasons: One, I think we are trading out of that pick and two: I don't think we'd take him even if we kept it. I think Ousmane might fall out of the lottery, again this is just a hunch.

    Walker Kessler is a guy who I don't think should be drafted at all, let alone in the first round. I have consistently seen him mocked around that spot though so it wouldn't shock me to see him go there. Not sure I'd be able to put my personal bias aside here; I'd be really tempted to bet over 24.5

    Agbaji over 14 seems pretty "safe" to me. I think his age keeps him out of the lottery. Mark Williams over 13.5 makes a lot of sense too although you have to drink a bit of juice with both of these picks

    Again would just like to reiterate that these are just based on personal hunches and what I've been able to gather from social media. I think we know a lot less this year than in years past for some reason, and I'll probably be holding off on betting on the draft in general for that reason: Example: Paolo's odds to go #1 went from +1600 last night to +400 now. Things are constantly moving so I just can't say with enough confidence that I'd be comfortable betting on anything draft related

    Respex on having Tari that high up, love his game. Curious why you have Sochan so much lower though, given that鈥檚 he鈥檚 pretty close to as versatile of a defender and a much more advanced offensive player

    I don't think Sochan is close to Eason on offense, and while I agree Sochan is an incredibly versatile defender I think Eason is a gamebreaker at that end

    Interesting. Not gonna say you鈥檙e wrong, cause I can see where you鈥檙e coming from. But the one thing that stands out about Sochan above Eason to me is his ability to run an offense and make plays for others. Eason doesn鈥檛 look like he鈥檇 be as comfortable with the ball in his hands against a good defender, he鈥檚 more turnover prone

    EJ Liddell higher than 22.5
    Jalen Duren higher than 10.5
    Mark Williams higher than 14.5
    AJ Griffin lower than 11.5
    Ochai Abaji higher than 14.5 (I have a hunch the Cavs take him at 14 though)

    my final plays

    Also think Julian Champagnie is the most underrated player in the draft. Guy is a bucket getter.

    I thought I was for sure safe with Griffin and Branham still on the board. Bad pick by Cleveland imo.
