    Yeah, I would say there is a 1% chance he does NOT make the team.

    On a side note, I am kind of excited to see the second unit of Ulis, Reed, Warren (or Jackson, depending on who gets the starting job), Bender, and Williams. There is an awful lot of scoring, passing, and defense in that group.

    Jackson is the best prospect in this draft. So it's no surprise he's so good.

    Reed is a shock to most people, because he really wasn't on many mock draft boards.

    I'd put his chance of making the squad at 99.99%. McD, the HC, and Booker absolutely love him. We're all starting to see why.

    Thats faaaaar from a given. There are few to no sure things in NBA drafts. Id be watching Jackson extremely closely.

    Thus far he looks good. But to say hes a surefire star already is premature.

    Saying he's one of, if not the best, PROSPECT in the draft doesn't mean that he'll be a star in the NBA. Of course that is the hope but that's never a sure thing and there is a difference in calling someone a top prospect and a future star.

    Look back at the 2013 draft, it was said Len was one of the top prospects that draft but he's not a star and never will be. No one taken in the lottery from that draft could be called a star but those were the players considered top prospects that year.

    Yes. "Prospect" is not the same thing as "surefire star".

    Good stuff. Good luck Reed. We need more shooters. Hope you earn a lot of playing time. Trio of Booker, Daniels and Reed should give us more punch, especially late in games.

    Just heard on ABC 15 that Davon Reed has been recalled by the Suns and will be available for the Thunder game tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing what he can do. The only downside is how Jackson has been getting sporadic playing time lately, not sure if he's in the doghouse or not but with another wing available he might have more time taken from him. Hopefully Reed just takes House's playing time though.
