You also have to relate it back to this particular draft and where the NBA is at in terms of trends. I think you take him and run. If he busts he busts. No matter who they select I doubt the franchise is hinging their hopes on him. Even if he can't learn to be a true wing in the modern NBA he could find a role as an athletic small ball 4 in a switch defense. Skilled, non great athlete 4's aren't great value and this bubble run only made that worse looking at the results. Versatility, athleticism and switchability on the wing is even more valuable now. The trade market for players like Robert Covington vs. superstars like Harden and Westbrook is very telling. VERY.
So in that context, a guy like Patrick Williams is more valuable because he can play up and swing between those 3/4 positions. Okoro with a short wingspan for a SF is really more of a 2/3 wing and there's less demand for that now. It limits his defensive versatility. Which places even more emphasis on his ability to shoot from the perimeter consistently to justify his place on the floor. 15 years ago a one-on-one stopper who can swing between the 2 and 3 positions and guard the other team's best perimeter scorer was a guy you could build your defense around. Now? He's going to get pick and rolled to death and he might have trouble switching on to super speedy scorers and some taller post players.
I like Okoro a lot, I'm just saying that this is how the league is moving and this is how front offices are going to evaluate him. His low steal rate is a factor in terms of how he looks on paper. Combine that with his smaller size for a wing by modern standards and you have some question marks. Executives don't like question marks they they can't justify to their boss. For teams that rely more on traditional scouting I think when you go to the tape it's easy to fall in love with him and dream on his potential as a two way wrecking ball fan-favorite. I can see Thibodeau in New York taking him, for instance. Charlotte in the past has favored players who fit his profile, though I doubt he's seriously in play at #3. I already expressed that I would love to have him but in the back of my mind I do have to question whether a proven shooter with similar defensive potential and a little more prototypical size for a modern wing would be a smarter choice, and those guys are likely to be available here.
