    Daniel Oturu F/C declares for the draft. He has a nice high release on his shot.

    Basically a poor man's Ayton. We could certainly do worse, but he wouldn't fill any of our biggest needs (power forward, point guard of the future, back-up shooting guard). Oturu doesn't have enough range to fit offensively alongside Ayton and is not enough of a defensive or rebounding stud to make up for that fact.

    The Suns are likely going to have to trade or sign a starting power forward in free agency. I wouldn't mind having a player like Oturu that can develop and provide some depth for the Suns front court. He is another player to consider. I doubt Baynes is coming back.

    If we get a legit starting power forward in free agency or via trade, I can get behind drafting Oturu to back up Ayton and to play back-up 4 alongside a back-up stretch 5.

    This draft has some interesting big man prospects but they will need some time to develop. It will be interesting if James Jones is looking for more finished products again in the draft. That hasn't worked out too well thus far with Ty Jerome.

    Looks like the NBA Draft and Combine will be moved back due to coronavirus.

    Kentucky coach John Calipari says the NBA has said that the NBA Combine and NBA Draft will probably be moved back in wake of coronavirus crisis. Calipari said he hopes that the date by which college players have to make decisions about the draft will be moved back as well.

    Kenyon Martin Jr. declaring for draft.

    IMG Academy forward Kenyon Martin Jr., has declared for the 2020 NBA Draft, his father Kenyon Martin Sr., tells ESPN. Martin Jr., is eligible for draft, because he did the post-graduate year at IMG after graduating from Sierra Canyon H.S. in SoCal.

    Mannion is now listed at #13 on Tankathon. He has way more stat weaknesses than strengths so hopefully James Jones stays far away.

    I'm not quite sure where to add this, maybe here.

    The NCAA has decided not to grant athletes from winter sports (including basketball) an extra year of eligibility due to coronavirus pandemic. Spring sport athletes were granted extra year.

    The NCAA is actually taking heat for not granting basketball players another year. Most teams played 30+ games already lol.

    Yeah. I can't see giving basketball players another season of eligibility. This season was over except for conference playoffs and the NCAA Tournament.
