    @bajaden I looked forward to discussing with you these prospects and the upcoming college season and draft process but sadly this will be my last post here. This board is not for me. I'm wrong for being right here. Too many absurd holier than thou rules, people wanna pick fights and hold...

    Randolph arrested

    Whats uncalled for, lazy and pretentious, is asking people for sources that are readily available and found in a matter of seconds. This isn't some foreign, dated or obscure story, It's being covered by multiple major news outlets, local and national. I didn't post the source because I'm not...

    Randolph arrested

    Do you not have access to a search engine? If you think I made it up surely it'd take you about 10 seconds to fact check.... Tip: Type in 'Zach Randolph' and '2 pounds' on Google and you'll find a source. It's also being reported that 6 cop cars were vandalized in the incident (tires slashed...

    Randolph arrested

    Reportedly he had 2 pounds on him in a backpack..... Must've been stocking up for the season.. This makes the Kings F/O look foolish. Nickerson Gardens is.... not a good area... If he's gonna partake in such activity shouldn't he have cronies in his crew handling this?? Signing him always...

    He's quick enough to give shooters trouble on the perimeter, also he's got great instincts at leaking out after a turnover or dreb and getting in transition, where he'll struggle is hanging with penetration, conversely tho at PF he's got a skinny lower body and will likely get mauled in the post..

    My buddy who's 6'7" met Michael Porter Jr last week and swears he's a legit 6'10 and will be a PF. I'm still gonna say his position is SF/PF though, even though there's many huge mismatch type of players at SF, I think thats where he'll fit best. As a smallball PF though as I've mentioned...

    I think he'd fit well with Fox. Fox needs the ball to be effective but he doesn't need to dominate the shot clock to do so. I feel like he can get the ball to Doncic the ball in an advantageous position, and quickly, and thats all Luka needs to have the defense at his mercy. My opinion is...

    Future prospects (split from tank thread)

    Another elite wing prospec. He's got tons of skill and staying power. One of my top 2 or 3 favorite players in this class.

    Another Polarizing Kansas player sure to be discussed in this thread is former #1 ranked player in the class, Malik Newman, who's a combo guard with a truly awesome 3pt shot. Here's some recent footage of him dropping 32 on their trip to Italy. He'll turn 21 at the end of the college...

    @GoodmanESPN Mitchell Robinson, who was released by Western Kentucky, was on LSU campus today, sources told ESPN. Talented big man from New Orleans. 6:52 PM - Aug 5, 2017

    The direction of the Carter/Randolph signings

    Not trying to be a wetblanket in this thread, it's worth pointing out that the Kings might not really be trying to win this season... Would not meeting the floor, gambling on more youngins and maintaining more flexibility (+$12MM next offseason instead of allocating it to Randolph) get in the...

    The direction of the Carter/Randolph signings

    It's worth pointing out the Jazz were also riddled with injuries in 2015-2016 and in 2016-2017, both seasons they had like ~180 games missed due to injury. I actually think if that squad, specifically George Hill and Derrick Favors were 100% all of last year they could've taken the 3-seed.

    The direction of the Carter/Randolph signings

    Absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence... I'd argue the 2012 Thunder won their division and made the finals based on the strength of 22 and 23 year olds. If you choose to believe Kendrick Perkins was mentoring KD Westbrook and Harden on the nuances of pulling up off the dribble...

    G. Temple interview

    Good stuff. Favorite parts were his comments on Skal, De'Aaron and the high praise for fans in Sacramento. I'd recommend using the timestamps to jump around and listen to particular questions.

    6'10" Kansas PF Billy Preston is sure to be a polarizing player in this thread so I figure it's best to introduce him ASAP, for those who don't know. I hate to have to start out like this but it's worthy of note, he's quite old for a Freshman, he's actually older than Dragan Bender and will...

    I'm a fan of projected top-20 7-footer Brandon McCoy headed to UNLV btw, he's an elite talent freshman and I'd say likely lotto pick.. He's got great touch and some nice foot-work/post moves, he's kinda like Brook Lopez as far as I'm concerned and I'd say if Papagiannis shows little this year...

    Jannero Pargo was a great success story at Gonzaga too. Few is one of the best coaches in college IMO and there's not much of a case to be made aginst him. There's no doubt some teams do less with more and some do more with less, the latter is usually a combination of being able to spot...

    all the HS recruiting services took a major L with Marquis too. They used to hype him like he was gonna be better than Jeff. Marquis was laying the ball up on wide-open fast breaks and Jeff was throwing down viscious jams in halfcourt offense. If they weren't brothers no one would've ever...

    The direction of the Carter/Randolph signings

    KCP signed a 1 year deal with the Lakers. I'd have much preferred to sign him to an even bigger 1 year deal and use the Randolph roster spot on a UDFA like Cameron Oliver.. The option of signing cheaper players and keeping space open to facilitate a deal and pick up a 1st rd pick near the...

    Another player thats sure to be a favorite of mine throughout the process will be 6'6" Swingman Jacob Evans, a Jr. from Cinci. Who I thought was good enough to be drafted last year. He could be in play for the 2nd rd pick. He's crazy athletic, something like a 45" vertical, tough, tenacious and...
