Deandre Ayton vs Brandon McCoy

Coming into the game both guys are avergaging 20-10 plus..stats from the game:

Deandre stat line:

28pts, 10 Rebs, 3 blocks, 12-23 shooting

Brandon McCoy

33pts, 10 Rebs, 13-17 shooting.

Zona won by 3 in OT. Did anyone see this game? Was a great game! Both guys are studs and will be game changers on the next level. But the world is sleepoing on Brandon McCoy...

Yes I watched it. What a

Yes I watched it. What a great game! Ayton has a really polished game inside, midrange, and from the 3 point line. He also missed some open shots that he easily could have made. That was my first time watching him this season.

McCoy right now looks for scoring opportunities on post up plays/ in the paint and does a good job with them. I want to see him extended his game out to midrange and the 3 point like like ayton eventually. Overall, I like what I saw from both players. Ayton showed why he should be a top 5 pick and I think McCoy is probably looking at the 10-20 range in the draft right now

P.S Kris Clyburn and Juiston look like a couple of guys to keep your eye on for UNLV. I also liked what I saw from Trier.

McCoy is stiff in his

McCoy is stiff in his movements and the way he runs. Also he is slow. I view him as just another big and without a three pt shot he is a backup center at best.

McCoy is very much a work in

McCoy is very much a work in progress IMO, he is still raw and doesn't have the fludity of movement that say Ayton has. But he does run the court reasonably well for a big 7 footer and has a solid build already.

He does need to develop a few offensive moves but unlike some other bigs is a reasonable FT shooter and has the fundamentals to develop his shooting range as well as his obvious value on defence. He may not be the sort of guy who can yet create his own shot but with a good NBA creative players around him, he'd be kept ticking over with points.

I'd say his draft range is currently 10 to 20 but he could move up depending pn team needs and has as much chance as any other big of currently being 3rd legit big man chosen after Ayton and Bamba.

I can’t agree with the raw

I can’t agree with the raw assessment when he’s averaging 20 and 10. Dembele, his backup, is raw.

Thats the difference between

Thats the difference between college and the pros. I give him credit for moving up a level and still putting up numbers but the way he is doing it won't happen in the NBA. Only big I know who can play that way is KAT...and he gets away with fouling everyone on either end of the floor. McCoy needs to play more like Myles Turner.

Neither of these guys are great defenders. I would say Ayton's game is very similar to Brook Lopez.

McCoy and Makal Bridges

McCoy and Mikal Bridges should have helped their stock quite a bit this week.
