Quote
Giannis Antetokounmpo's agent, Giorgos Panou, reveals in the ‘Finding Giannis' documentary that the Knicks were the one team that didn't send a scout or team staffer to see Antetokounmpo in Greece before the 2013 NBA Draft. The Knicks selected Tim Hardaway Jr. with the 24th pick in that draft. It's surprising, though, that New York wouldn't do its due diligence and see Antetokounmpo in person.

Hmm.  And Knix have been good at Euro-scouting.
Greek went #15 & Knix had the #24 pick, but you can always trade up especially mid-round.  Or a guy can drop unexpectedly.

Also, after Tim, the next 3 picks were Reg Bullocks, Andre Roberson, Rudy GoBear.  Obviously Gobert is the prize there.  Bullocks has transformed himself into a solid wing, after early career struggles.  Roberson a premier defender with no shot, and has been injury prone lately. 

It was a strange draft with a very weak Top 9.
Only Otto Porter and Oladipo have panned out. 
10-18 was better than the Top 9.

NOEL sporting a  19.2 PER

Caldwell-Pope is a player

Zeller doing just fine - 14, 10 and 3 per 36.  56/79 shooting

The new Jordan Hill!
He plays 14 mins a night.

Adequate but too passive.
Lakes need outside shooting and defense and yet were looking into trading KCP ...

Fuzzy is allright.  Sets good screens.  Plays hard.  Not exactly high pick worthy, but yeah, fine.

GS meltdown (courtesy of Dray with assist form Klay and Kerr) led to an 8 point play.  Dray gave a hard foul to unexpected GS antagonist Zach Collins.  These days it gets looked at and becomes a flagrant foul.  Kerr goes nuts and gets tossed.  So it's 2 tech FT's from Kerr, apparently another T on Dray, and 2 FT's and the ball for POR.  Dame Lillard makes 3 Techs FT's, Zach a pair of FT for the foul, and POR gets the ball back with Layman canning a 3.

So a 7 point POR lead with 4 mins left becomes a 15 point lead after one possession.  8 point play!

POR bench won the game.  McCollum never even got back in.
Layman with 17 (the player GS kept leaving open), Seth Curry with 11 and burned his bro a couple times (especially a driving layup and hustling down a long rebound), feisty Zach Collins 3 blocks and nice hustle and riled up the Warriors.

Klay 2-16 FG and let Zach get under his skin.

I am sure you feel Collins is a failed pick as well.

Collins is interesting.  Usually scrappy when I see him.  But he plays limited minutes and is up/down.  Too early to tell if he's a future starter or a bench guy.  He's young and has improved nicely over his iffy rook year.  Not a bad player to have drafted, but jury's still out.

For a #10 pick, that's okay, but not great.  This Lillard-McCollum-Nurkic team could have used a more NBA-ready yute.

There's at least a half dozen other 1st rounders in that class who are better:  Don Mitchell, the other Collins (John), Kuzma, Justin Jax, Jarrett Allen, OG, Bam.  [13, 19, 27, 15, 22, 23, 14 respectively]
That's 7.  Monk, Kennard, DJ Wilson might be around his level too.

A very solid draft.
Derrick White, Josh Hart and T Ferguson are all stepping up this year[29, 30; 21].  Giles a real wildcard at #20 .  And it was super deep, as the 2nd round could set a record for the number of player to stick 3 years or more in the League.  Kadeem Allen was the #53 pick; Dotson #44.

Btw, Zach was taken 2 picks after Franc and directly after Dennis Jr.

Give me Zach Collins over Justin Jackson, Monk, Kennard or DJ Wilson. But the rest are all fantastic picks outside of the lottery.

Some of these guys are 21-22 years old

Too early.

Of course teams like their guys to at least be good enough to help in a trade or to re-sign.
