    I'm talking draft. Stauskas will be better than Anderson in the NBA. I also think Stauskas isn't as bad athletically as you think.

    Offense is WAY easier to learn than defense.

    Forgot the stats for a second, can you honestly say with a straight face that DJ Augustin is a scorer?

    I can say that he's being used that way this year in Chicago. It may be a result of Thib's system, but who knows.

    Right but ceez said specifically that he thinks stauskas has qualities that will make him successful on D. So that's what I was responding to.

    I think stauskas' floor is higher than Anderson's. I think his ceiling is lower. And I think they're both niche role players in a way.

    If Stauskas can become an average defender, then he's a solid 6th man SG/SF. I don't think that's a huge stretch for him.

    Anderson would need to develop a lot to even warrant significant minutes imo. Risk/reward - he's worth a 2nd round pick to me, but not a first

    haha, very evasive. It's not like he's an unknown entity. He's been the league for years and was here at the start of the season. So Thib's system is just a small sample of his career, it's fair to say what he is and what he isn't is a scorer.

    As much as people want Ennis with our 20th pick, he'll probably go around 15. I say we take Napier. I love his game and I'd be happy with either him or Ennis.

    Not sure it's been mentioned, but Smart declared yesterday and TJ Warren declared for the draft today.

    I said this yesterday further up in this thread, but picks 14-19 (as things now stand, 14-20 not counting ours if we lose the 3rd spot to Chicago) are all owned by teams with multiple picks. Also pick #10 is owned by Philly and is their second pick in the draft (via NOP).

    It may be possible to not make a very big trade and move up a few spots. I'm all for that if it means grabbing Ennis. Could even be possible with a straight swap of picks depending on how things play out.

    Stauskas IMO has one of the highest ceilings in the draft. If he ill realize it or not is a whole different story. That shooting stroke with the addition of ball handing and driving doesn't come by very often. Smart kid and its blown up that he's bad on d. maybe so he will fall to Masai lol!

    Of course he thinks he's bad athletically, look at his user name.

    It's supposed to be ironic. I am white, and while I can't jump for shit now, I'm pretty short and could grab the rim until I was 24. And I like the movie, and in the movie the dude can actually dunk when it counts.

    It was a joke based on the available material I have on you, which is your username and your stance on a couple draft prospects.

    Well then for future reference, it is ironic...and actually meant to imply the opposite being more than a little possible.

    I don't think Stauskas will struggle because he's white. He's got a pretty low level of athleticism by NBA standards. He's also lacking in length, and not particularly strong at his position. Now this doesn't make him an automatic bust. I can see him strugglin defensively, though, quite easily. And I can see him having a hard time translating his non-outside shooting based offence to the NBA.
