    My guess is that Nowell is in the 25-35 range

    I'll take the under on 30.
    Let’s see the final list of those that go

    Another thing to consider is the 2020 Draft isn’t considered a particularly strong one

    If he is in the top 20 it’s a no brained.

    If on the edge hard decisions to make
    No wrong. It’s this draft that is considered horrible out of Zion, Ja, and maybe Reddish/Barrett.

    Yep, this is the much better draft for Nowell to be in.

    Reddish is such a bum. Guaranteed bust. He might be a stats guy and put up 20 one day, but he will never be a top 2 guy on a good team. He’s a lesser version of Andrew Wiggins, and Wiggins sucks.

    Go read articles ... there was an article on The Athletic about the McDonald’s All American that talked about how light the 2020 draft was going to be

    RJ Barrett will probably go the way of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Well rounded but doesn’t do any one thing particularly well, including shooting. Journeyman starter at best.

    Wouldn’t bank on anyone besides Zion/Ja being an All Star calibur player

    Barrett is a ball hog. He actually has good vision when he does pass. I think he has a chance if he can improve his shot and be less selfish.

    If I were the blazers I wouldn't even give him a roster spot

    I know you are being sarcastic but I would draft Thybulle over Nowell... And then hope I can teach Thybulle to stand and shoot the corner 3 in the next 2 years.

    A legitimate, long, elite defender who can guard 1-3 coming off the bench as a specialist should have appeal.

    Justin Holiday is still kicking around the NBA somehow.

    I suspect he will move up from those rankings ... but it’s looking to be a stretch to be guaranteed as a 1st rounder

    If that is the case, then the right move is to go back to school

    Also, what’s the latest on Anthony Lamb or any other potential (grad) transfer? I saw SDST had a Guard from WA that was thinking about transferring avg 19 PPG (not as a grad transfer though).

    Not hiring an agent?

    This would be a huge and unexpected development.

    He can hire and agent and still end up returning to school so long as he participates in the NBA combine.

    I don't know if I read this here, or somewhere else, but I thought that McDaniels wasn't coming to UW if Nowell was still here?

    Again that’s the dumbest fucking thing I have ever heard. Great players want to play with great players.
    @RhythmicSlappingDawg prediction to uw?
