    I don’t agree with a fair few of the positions but good bit of word digging out some interesting comparisions a lot which I hadn’t seen or thought of before.

    Player comparison is not saying career will be as good as these players more about style of play and skill set comparison.

    Comparisions I always treat with a pinch of salt and try to take it as either what that player was like at the start of their career or how they play.

    Where Zouldiers uses Gobert as comparision for Kessler it is as a defensive anchor not you will get another Gobert level guy at 32 on his mock. Also Gobert was drafted at 27 which is in Walker’s ballpark draft range so that is a fair comparision.

    Guys near the top of the draft you could consider them having a similar type of career Lewis as a two time All Star would be a decent middle ground to predict Jabari Smith at. C-Web for Banchero might be his upper ceiling IMO.

    Marcus Bingham Jr will probably get drafted. 7 footer with a 7’4 wingspan and a really good looking three point shot. It just keeps getting better. Spending 4 years at Michigan St with Izzo lets you know the guys gonna be a worker. I think he developed alot this past season and is kind of a hidden gem/his stats don’t tell the full story. Hope he goes undrafted though because Toronto is defenitely the undrafted free agent #1 destination.

    This is why I havent done a mock draft. Feels crazy to leave guys like Ron Harper Jr., Josh Minott, Moussa Diabate, Dominick Barlow, Kameron Mcgusty etc. out of the top 58 available picks but the reality is somebody is gonna go undrafted. Its just hard for me to decide who to leave out.

    Adonis Arms is supposed to be gaining traction as a 2nd rounder now. He has apparently really impressed in workouts with his athleticism, defensive versatility, IQ, and ability to pass.

    Guys who miss out will still get Summer League and training camp invites so probably will have as good a chance as making the roster as the guys drafted late in the second round.
