    With the Knicks connections to Kentucky, we might look for them to trade down for Tyrese Maxey.

    Some good stuff on Zeke. I wouldn't mind drafting him in a trade down.

    Something to store away for future reference.

    Tyler Bey is the third rated small forward in the draft by Tankathon so yes he can play.

    He is slotted number 27 in their mock. I've watched some video on him but it didn't blow me away.

    He can contribute as a 7th or 8th man. Very inconsistent outside shot and even more inconsistent performer overall, but good athlete and decent slasher and defender. Has a little Shawn Marion in him, but without the reflexes, quick second jump or quick lateral movement (which are basically what distinguished Marion). However, also has a little Josh Jackson in him.

    I came across this today. The wingspan is different from the other report though so who knows what is true.

    The NBA Draft Combine measurements shouldn't change so I don't know what to make of it.

    It's still not anything to get me super excited. The wingspan is slightly better and it looks like he has some jumping ability. I wish there were some comparison measurements to other players.

    If the Suns draft him let's hope they know what they are doing and it's in a trade down scenario.

    It would be nice if the Suns could buy or trade for a second round pick. Some interesting players will be available.

    Riller reminds me of Nash at Santa Clara.

    Except Riller wasn't even half the passer and didn't lead his team to any success...

    I think Charleston made the tourney one year but I was comparing them as players. And Nash wasn’t really seen as an elite distributor until his late 20’s.

    In their final college seasons, Nash averaged 6 assists and 3.6 turnovers, while Riller averaged 3.9 assists and 3.1 turnovers...

    I don’t see a future at pg or even backup pg in this league for Riller. I think his only future lies as instant offense off the bench at combo guard (ala Seth Curry).
