March (April) Madness is just around the corner and the tournament are where legends are made.

Just looking at kids who could help long term after this year.

PG Ayo Dosunmu - 6'5 PG can do it all.

G/F Ron Harper Jr - Big G at 6'5 245. Had a hot start to season but cooled off a bit.

G Franz Wagner - Younger brother of Moritz. Another big G at 6'9. Good all around player but not great in any one area.

C Luka Garza - For those who have not seen him play, think Sabonis / Jokic in terms of offensive skill. Big, strong kid who is arguably best player in CBB but will go late first or somewhere in second round because he is a SR and isn't a quick twitch athlete.

C Charles Bassey - One hell of a defensive player. Needs to continue to develop his shooting range but very active inside.

If we ended up with Dosunmu & Garza, PHX will be adding to their young core pieces to hopefully develop into a long term threat after this year.

Are you taking into consideration that our pick belongs to OKC this year? Nbadraft.net has Dosunmu going 17 and Garza isn’t even listed in either round.

Suns have their pick in 2021. They traded away a protected 2022 first round draft pick.

My mistake, for some reason I thought we didn’t have the pick this year.

It feels that way because the Suns can't trade their 2021 first draft pick until draft day at the earliest if they wanted too.

Definitely going to check out Garza. I don’t get the jokic comp as he only averages 1.7 assists/game.

He is a really good passing big man. Jokic handles the ball a lot in DEN's offense, Luka potentially could be a facilitator but he is the primary scoring option for IOWA.

He can bang in paint, he is a 40% 3pt shooter, can rebound and is a crafty defender. You know the kid is special because IOWA is retiring his jersey after the season, back to back Big 10 POY.

Bassey is an interesting one not all that long ago there were rumors he was going to stay for his senior year, wanted his degree etc and then he got hurt again, back stuff this time(had a serious leg injury earlier in his career) and now virtually everyone expects he'll go pro so he can get paid in case the back is a problem. The injuries will probably harm his draft stock but when he was supposed to be staying in school literally everyone was assuming he might use the NCAA free transfer rule to go to a bigger name school.

Over 12 boards and 3.4 blocks, very athletic kid.

We don't speak cat here.

(and I'm enjoying the Florida/Va Tech game now that the pace has picked up a little)

Not much of a rim protecter. solid rebound numbers for the game.
