    Big takeaways

    • There's still no consensus among recruiting experts on the top prospect in this class, let alone how the top five to 10 players will shake out in what appears to be a fairly weak group at the moment. James Wiseman, Vernon Carey and Cole Anthony have all held the No. 1 spot at different points depending on whom you listen to, but two other players have made significant strides and have leapfrogged those three on our own board.

    Lowe: Biggest All-Star debates, and 12 picks for each conference
    Zach Lowe gets into the big All-Star debates -- Russ, Luka, how many stars on contenders? -- and reveals his final ballot.
    Jaden McDaniels, our No. 1 prospect in the class, was extremely impressive in viewings at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and at the Tarkanian Classic in Las Vegas last month. And although he faltered to a 4-for-19 shooting performance at Hoophall, it was impossible not to come away impressed with the talent that he displayed even on a cold shooting day. The 6-foot-11 forward has elite-level fluidity, body control, footwork, mobility and coordination, giving him the highest upside of any player in the class in our estimation. He has real guard skills despite playing center for his high school team and has the ability to create his own shot with incredible ease thanks to his polished ballhandling and propensity for playing at different speeds. He's also a willing and unselfish passer with a high basketball IQ, and he should become a good shooter in time.

    While his skill level is extraordinarily high, McDaniels is most impressive right now on the defensive end. He's rangy, with terrific feet and the ability to cover ground seamlessly. Although his thin frame needs plenty of work, he's a lot more physical than you might expect, playing with good intensity on the ball, showing strong awareness off of it and impressive instincts rebounding, getting in the passing lanes and blocking shots inside the paint.

    McDaniels will need to become a lot more consistent as a shooter to unlock his full offensive potential, and his frame is still years away from fully filling out. His trajectory is much different than those of his counterparts at the top of this class, though, as he went from Top 100 to top-five status virtually overnight after a terrific spring and summer on the EYBL circuit going into his senior year. There's plenty of reason for optimism that he'll continue to progress moving forward.

    It’s ESPN insider. Sags is projected to go 51st.

    Let me check ...since ESPN decided I should have to pay to watch the UFC...

    West is listed in the 2020 draft with Oscar on nbadraft.net, projected to go late in the second.

    It’s ESPN insider. Sags is projected to go 51st.

    So not a unicorn?biggrin

  • I will tell you who will be drafted and where thx

  • Thanks for the info. I would love to see Sags get drafted but his situation can't be helping his draft stock.

    Damn someone’s a little sensitive. I was just informing you that espn never had LaMont West projected as a draft pick.

    Didn't I tell the board years ago as like a Soph that Jevon Carter was going to be an NBA? Wasn't I ridiculed for that prediction?

    Where is Jevon Carter right now?

    Didn't I tell the board that Derek Culver was NBA or MAC bound after 2 years? Does any part of that prediction look off at this point?

    I can't account for debilitating injuries like SAGZ. I can't time travel. But I know who's got NBA potential and who don't.

    Regardless of what West does on the court, the frame and skillset as a 3 and D guy are not going to change. I am skeptical of his NBA future, but it has nothing to do with what he's doing on the court.

    Everything I've seen from OSCAR suggests failing a debilitating injury he is a 1 and done. His position and skillset is certainly a dying breed in NBA these days but there's still people being drafted to it every year. His motor and rebounding are transcending skills, like SAGZ shot blocking. You never account for that. You just try to play match game and match our guys with someone in NBA and when you can't instead of thinking our guys might be a unique, valuable specimen, you just say they don't belong in NBA.

    What exactly do I not account for? I’ve been arguing more than just about anybody that Sags is an NBA player. I was arguing he would be a first round pick before he got injured. You seem to constantly make up these opposing point of views and assigning them to me when I don’t think that at all. You’re confused Dicky.

    And Dickie isn't? He's biggest self promoter on boards but a simple discussion of facts
    on FG% at the rim sets him off.

    Bump your JC thread Dickie cause I certainly don't recall it.

    If West is going to be a 3 and D guy then he should find a way to take off those concrete shoes he wears on defense.
