If Philly could grab in the second round that would be phenomenal. It might happen as there are some pretty big concerns for the next level despite his prolific season and big showing in the tournament.

His size is a red flag and not because a 6' (maybe) guy can't play in the NBA, but he is a shooting guard (albeit one who can pass) and he is not very good going to the hoop, which won't magically turn around in the NBA (life will be tougher in the trees at this level).

But beyond that, he's a shooter and he can free himself with or without the ball for shots. He is exactly the kind of guy Philly could use on their second unit, kind of a mini-version of Shamet in terms of his role. That'll be more valuable if they lose JJ, too.

I like him fine as a late first, love him as a second-rounder. He'll have a decent career heating it up off the bench.
