    It might be interesting to see what kind of common characteristics we see in hidden gems in the draft. Since 2014 here are the players.

    SGA, Shamet, M Robinson, Trier, Markkanen, John Collins, Kuzma, Sabonis, Brogdon, Devin Booker, Donovan Mitchell, Jokic, Dinwiddie.

    Some things I notice about these players. Few are fantastic athletes. All have sufficient size and strength to play their NBA position. They tend to be overlooked because of a more prominent teammate, mid sized school, international, or because they are upperclassmen. All produced decent numbers in one way or another. The production was there. You could see it if you looked.

    In a sh*t draft like this sign me up for a high floor guy like Clarke who’s a fearless rebounder/defender. FTR I think Garland will be off the board by the time he blows up workouts.

    Its the safe pick. He is not going to be a bust.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest you're talking about some other Ball?

    I'm not convinced on Lonzo but I'm not in love with White (yet) and I'm definitely not interested in Culver. I lean towards Clarke but I'm hoping someone wows us in workouts and combine data.

    Sounds suspiciously like Coby White.

    Who's to say that we would have to put the offense in their hands in year 1? They could still draft one of the rookies and bring in an older player to act as a stop gap for a year or two. I don't imagine that the #6 pick in this draft has a ton of value so I don't expect it will be used to get us a great PG anyways.

    Trade down and take Charles Bassey. Similar to Mitchell Robinson but with more range. Would say take Bol but foot problems concern me, if given a clean bill of health he would be my pick.

    Gambo 3: Garland, White and Culver.

    I don't dislike Culver, but I find it hard to come up with a good reason why the Phoenix Suns would take him at #6.

    Me too, barring not resigning Oubre and trading a lot of our guys prior to the draft?

    The reason would be nobody else wants the pick, Garland was already picked, and he is better than White.

    But is BPA the way to go? We need a point guard. Drafting a SG that is destined to only be a backup due to Devin Booker seems counter-productive to me. He's 6'6" so I'm not sure he would be an adequate 3 if that is what you are thinking. Kelly Oubre is 6'7" but I'm not convinced that Culver will be as good or better than him.

    Not really, but it's better than picking White just because he is a PG.

    I really don't like white. I would pick someone like Clarke or even bol bol over him.
