This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things
I've seen him about 4-5 times and I'm getting to the point where I'm convinced on C Isaiah Stewart out of Washington. Only 6'9" but a big 100% lean athletic body at about 260 pounds with a 7'4" wingspan means he's not at all undersized. He's a true back to the basket player with super soft touch on the rim and Kawhi-sized mitts to catch any entry pass. Had a heck of a game tonight against Colorado with 23/8/4 blocks on 9/12 shooting. I know that out of Washington McDaniels has the higher draft stock, but I'm pretty convinced Stewart will be the better pro. Currently mocks seem to have him a bit outside of the lottery (shocking to me) so it's not a reach he's going to be available when we pick, wherever we pick. I think he's an ideal back to the basket complement to Bagley as a face-up 4. If you told me right now he's the guy we draft this year, I'll take it.
