The Jazz tried to find their point guard of the future in Australia. When that didn’t work they turned to a magician from Spain. While that’s worked well, it just kind of makes sense that they’d take a crack at the kid from France. He’s got a nice long wing span and killer court vision. Not much of a defender, but may not need to be on this squad. Besides he’s got the second best name in this draft behind Shake Milton.
Jacob Evans and Jerome Robinson make some sense here.
Supposedly Hutchison has a promise by Chicago, but I think Thibs is going to reach a little too high and pluck him off the bench early. He’s got a well-polished game that is all business. Given that most of the T-Wolves are either in walkers or are full of nonsense the fit seems about right.
If they don’t pick him here, Okobo might make a lot of sense.
The Hawks need a better option at point guard. Not because they don’t have a solid player now, but because that player doesn’t want to be there anymore. So, before they get a full on barber shop tweet episode on their hands, they should draft a replacement. Aaron Holiday has the pedigree to prove that he belongs…and I’m not just talking about his two brothers playing in the league.
If Mitchell Robinson is available here, I could see them trying to beef up the front court.
