    Both Riller and Bane remind me of the kind of guys who would have been nice late first round sleepers... back in the 1980s. Riller is kind of a Jay Humphries type, and Bane reminds me of Blue Edwards. And both of those guys had decent careers... way back in the 1980s.

    I'm just not sure that either is going to be quite as effective as those guys in this NBA era, with such an increased emphasis on pure athleticism. Again, maybe the kinds of guys you can take a flyer on in the early second or very late first round and hope for the best. But not as lotto picks - no way.

    Ryen Russillo has thrown out some hot takes lately but on the Ringer pod with KOC he’s hearing that Patrick Williams might have a floor of #7 and could go as high as #3. I don’t see it at all he can’t shoot.

    I’d take a shot on Achiuwa before Williams.

    The same here. I'd take Achiuwa over Williams.

    As would I. I would also take Jalen Smith over Williams.

    I really want the suns to draft Nesmeth. He will be an outstanding NBA scorer.

    I want Tyrell Terry. I don't care if we take him at #10 or move down.

    You didn't watch Stanford play last season, did you?

    Nope, just tape before the draft. Riller stands out for me, too.

    If you watch the full games, you will see that Terry isn't anything special. I have not seen Riller's games, but from his tape, he doesn't appear to be anything special, either, and his numbers suggest that he can't play the point, despite being the size of a point guard.

    From scouting videos on YouTube, Riller is a SG in a PG's body. He can score from anywhere on floor but he is not going to create shots for others (1:1 AST / TO) or run an offense because he is the offense or at least was at College of Charleston.

    Terry has really worked on his body since the end of the season, I think someone posted his tweet on this thread about putting on 20 lbs of muscle and improving his vertical by 3 to 4 inches in five months which is pretty impressive when you add that amount of mass to your body. So while he may have looked small and inexplosive last season he may look better if we had camps and workouts to verify but you would take him assuming with the added strength and explosiveness he game will improve drastically.

    That's exactly what I see in Riller (which won't translate to the NBA, except perhaps in an Eddie House type deep bench instant offense role). As for Terry, that's an awful lot of speculation based solely on measurements and not a single second of game action.

    Kira Lewis Jr looks like he can turn into 17-20 pts a game 5-8 assist by his 2nd or 3rd year.

    I think he or J.Smith should be the pick if Toppin does not fall.

    Kira speed will allow him to score in the open court early in his career.
