    Bajaden's early 2022 Mock Draft: Don't bet money on it!

    I will be posting my updated mock draft in the coming days. It will take a lot of research so it won't be tomorrow.

    Looking ahead to the 2022 Draft

    If your asking if AD could have done that? Yes! AD was one of the most athletic big's I've ever seen. He did things on the court that few others could do. One of the things you have to know when scouting a player, is who is his head coach, and what system do they play. Calipari usually chained...

    He certainly looks a lot different than in the highschool film I watched. Looks like he's added 15 or 20 Lb's.

    You say that Murray's rebounding isn't off the charts, but he pulled down 8.7 boards a game, and his per 40 numbers are 11.0 boards a game. He also blocked 1.9 shots a game. By the same token Banchero pulled down 7.8 boards a game, and his per 40 numbers are 9.5. He blocked 0.9 shots a game...

    First, I don't know of anyone that thinks Murray should play the 5. Murray is a PF who can play some SF. In college he defended the pick and roll beautifully, so I have no idea why you said he would get caught on them. Sometimes I think you just make this crap up. If there's one player that I...

    Why? I think Murray is one of the best players in this draft. I have no idea why some people are down on him. He averaged 23 pt's a game. He's an excellent rebounder, a good defender and he shot just a tick under 40% from the three. He's a physical player as well, who rebounds out of his area...

    OK, I guarantee you that Murray is the most unsafe pick in the draft! Feel better now?

    Hey, I know people that think a Quarter pounder is bigger than the 1/3 pound burger!

    I guarantee you that Murray is a better athlete than Banchero, and personally, I would take him over Banchero, but at four, to me it's a no brainer! I take Murray and go home happy. Murray is a perfect fit for our team. We need stretch four and someone that can defend that position, and Murray...

    Players likely to be in the 2nd round:

    Collin Gillespie: PG/SG, 6'3", 195 Lb's, Wingspan NA, Senior, Villanova. 34.2 mpg - 15.6 ppg - 43.4% fgp - 41.5% 3pp - 90.5% ftp - 3.8 rpg - 3.2 apg - 1.0 stls - ORtg-124.8 - DRtg-101.9 - 23.0 USG% Collin is a different player in that he's a five year player. In his real Senior season he tore...

    Looking ahead to the 2022 Draft

    I think your severely understating Holmgren's abilities. To lump him in with all the other bigs does him a huge disservice. I think that from the moment he walks on the floor he'll be the best shotblocker, and shot changer on the team, and eventually one of the best in the NBA. He's a good three...

    Looking ahead to the 2022 Draft

    I've had an off and on love affair with Griffin all year long, but there's one thing we do know, he can shoot the ball. He shot 44.7% from the three this season on 4.1 attempts a game. He shot just a tick under 50% overall, and 79.2% from the line. He tends to play smaller than he is which is...

    Players likely to be in the 2nd round:

    The first thing I would ask you is whether you saw Queta play in the G-League. He looked entirely different down there, and his defense was excellent. I have no idea how you can pass judgement on a player on such a small sample size. He should have been getting minutes much sooner so he could...

    Players likely to be in the 2nd round:

    In case your wondering why I'm spending so much time on 2nd rd picks, it's because I don't know where were picking in the 1st rd. After Tuesday, when we know exactly where were picking, I'll start concentrating on who might be available at that pick. I'm hoping we move up, but if we end up at...

    Players likely to be in the 2nd round:

    Dalen Terry: PG/SG/SF, 6'7", 210 Lb's, 7'1" wingspan, Sophomore, Arizona. 27.8 mpg - 8.0 ppg - 50.2% fgp - 36.4% 3pp - 73.6% ftp - 4.8 rpg - 3.9 apg - 1.2 stl's Terry is a PG hiding in a SF's body. He didn't get the press that Mathurin and Koloko got, but whenever he entered a game I couldn't...

    Players likely to be in the 2nd round:

    Well, if you check some of the mocks, he is a first rd pick. It's all in the eye of the beholder. I think he's first rd talent, which is why I did the write up. All the players that I'm posting could or should be first rd talent.

    Better athlete than Bjelica! Also a better passer..

    Jalen Williams: SG, 6'6", 190 Lb's, Wingspan NA, Junior, Santa Clara. 34.8 mpg - 18.0 ppg - 51.3% fgp - 39.6% 3pp - 80.9% ftp - 4.4 rpg - 4.2 apg - 1.2 stl's Jalen is another player that I think has 1sr rd talent, but will slide into the 2nd rd. Like LaRavia, he's a Junior and a little older...

    Players likely to be in the 2nd round:

    Jake LaRavia: SG/SF, 6'9", 228 Lb's, Wingspan NA, Junior, Wake Forest. 31.6 mpg - 14.6 ppg - 55.9% fgp - 38.4% 3pp - 77.7% ftp - 6.6 rpg - 3.7 apg - 1.7 stl's - 1.0 blk's LaRavia is similar to a few other players that I'm not sure where they'll go. A lot of mocks have him going in the 2nd rd...

    Vonleh was a little taller. About the same weight though. Certainly hope he has a better career than Vonleh...
