"*THE* D'Angelo Russell IPO Post."
Sat Jun-13-15 05:00 PM by CyrenYoung

  

          

The time is here. OKS allegiances were tested with Deron vs CP3.

Reboot.


Now it's D.Lo vs Emmanuel Mudiay

but my guy...is *THE* best point guard in this draft, bar none.

Lol at whatever your alma mater/ walmart fandom squad has to offer at the position. No. He sucks. Sorry.

fall in line, or go ahead and climb aboard that Emmanuel Mudiay bandwagon. Every GM in the league knows better though.

1. "D'Angelo Russell cancels Sixers workout due to "illness""
In response to Reply # 0
Sat Jun-13-15 09:47 AM by guru0509

  

          

http://www.cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-basketball/25212936/dangelo-russell-cancels-sixers-workout-illness-or-promise

Ohio State combo guard D'Angelo Russell cancelled his workout with the Philadelphia 76ers this week, due to a reported illness.

D'Angelo Russell canceled this weekend's scheduled workout with the 76ers after getting "real sick," according to a source close to the former Ohio State standout. Another source said don't rule out the franchise securing a workout with Russell in the near future.
Source: Russell cancels workout with Sixers.

It's entirely possible that Russell merely missed the workout because he was actually sick. These guys are human, it happens. If the team and prospect reschedule, no drama here. However, the mere mention did set of questions as to whether Russell, who worked out for the Lakers four days ago, has secured a guarantee at No.2 with the LA. It would be surprising on a number of levels, given the potential availability of Karl Towns should the Minnesota Timberwolves decide to draft Jahlil Okafor, and because of the Lakers' need for size downlow next to the talented but undersized cannonball of Julius Randle at power forward. Still, point guard has been a considerable concern for LA through the years and Jeremy Lin does not appear long for the Lakeshow.

If Russell were to be taken No.2, that would create quite a bit of chaos. The Philadelphia 76ers, who may still be looking at Emmanuel Mudiay, Justise Winslow, or Kristaps Porzingis according to reports, would be in a pickle with either Towns or Okafor slipping the year after they took Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid in back to back drafts. That's not to say they wouldn't select one of the two top big men, but it does complicate the situation to a degree. It's a good problem to have.

Meanwhile, if the Sixers didn't draft Okafor should he slip, you can bet the Knicks will jump right on top of that opportunity and put him firmly at the low post of the triangle offense. That would take about 0.4 seconds for Phil Jackson to decide on.

Again, this is likely just Russell coming down with an illness from all the travel he's done crossing the country for workouts, but it does present some interesting scenarios. Russell was reportedly at the top of the Sixers' board back in April.

Surprised that the top two teams, both of whom have serious size needs, seem to be seriously considering him... but since I think the dude's a future All-Star and my favorite PG prospect since Kyrie, I reckon it's not *that* surprising in a PG league. Dude is a stone-cold lock to go top 3.

Great talent who seemed to be horribly underrated coming out of HS. Gotta give credit to Matta for giving him a long leash…he was really fun to watch last year.

He seems to be a catch and shoot guy and that makes him easy to game plan for. He needs to put it on the floor more and play with some energy/anger . Ppl at the alumni bar call him eeyore because of how mopey have always comes off (sorry realityrap)

The second we benched him and started jaesean Tate the offense began clicking. No surprise

I don't keep up with recruiting that much anymore (besides whoever UK is targeting), but I think I remember Matta having a strong Indiana connection. Tom Crean, meanwhile, can't capitalize off the Indianapolis area to save his life. I hope he stays at IU forever.

But lately he's lost a few guys

Luke Kennard, carlton Bragg, esa ahmad, vj king, Nigel Hayes, and even Trey Burke


But our incoming class is great and 2016 is shaping up nicely for Ohio HS hoop prospects

Crean will be finished after this season (I've been saying that for 3 years now tho)

In response to Reply # 45


  

          

I spent my first 19 years in Paducah, KY. Played HS ball against the best teams from Louisville/Lexington. For as much as we love basketball in Kentucky, the state has never really produced much in terms of NBA talent.

Allan Houston
Rondo
Shelvin Mack (underdog)
Darius Miller? (cup of coffee for New Orleans, currently in Germany IIRC)

There's surely a couple ones I'm forgetting right now, but the state isn't exactly fertile territory for NBA-caliber prospects.

I just remembered D.A. because he suited up for us. Randy Ayers was doing his best to keep us above water with probation looming since we paid some player and got busted...

but combine that with the knee injury and homesickness, and it was pretty obvious he was gonna transfer back home. He was pretty special in Columbus as well (All-Big Ten soph yr)

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Unfortunately as a Knicks fan, it all depends on the wild card Philly. They like Mudiay, then great, assuming the 2 bigs go 1 & 2

But he cancels the Philly workout, plus Philly likes Mudiay, and the real wild card is Philly (amongst other teams) seem to REALLY like that Euro kid...but I doubt if they take him or any other big (especially since they're trying to bring Saric stateside next season)

As a Knicks fan, I've settled into Russell not being available and grabbing either Mudiay or Winslow...but stranger things have happened

26. "Chad Ford Big Board (swipe)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/draft/mock/?season=2015&version=11&source=Chad-Ford-Big-Board

The NBA draft team workouts are finally in motion. All 30 teams in the league are now hosting workouts of prospects almost daily. Although these workouts might seem superficial on the surface, they often serve as important tiebreakers between players whom teams like.

Nail the interview or the on-court portion of the workout, and you can still see your stock rise. Screw it up, and there's still room to fall. That said, there hasn't been a lot of major movement in our top 30. There's been some tweaking here and there based on feedback from teams. In other words, the board is stabilizing.

Here's our latest player rankings, based on feedback from NBA teams.

1Karl-Anthony TownsCOLLEGE: KentuckyHT: 6-11WT: 250POS: C
2014-15 STATSPPG 10.3RPG 6.7BPG 2.3
Towns has been No. 1 on the Big Board since March, and barring any last-minute injury or revelation, he'll be No. 1 on our Final Big Board as well. No prospect in the draft has a stronger combination of size and skill for his position. Towns has the potential to be a dominant 4 and 5 in the NBA on both sides of the floor. His engaging personality and excellent work ethic give him a clear path to stardom. According to the analytics, Towns ranks anywhere from No. 1 to 5 in most models used by NBA teams. Towns has yet to work out for anyone, and there remains a strong chance that he'll forgo workouts altogether. He is, however, planning on visiting both the Minnesota Timberwolves and Los Angeles Lakers for interviews. In virtually every scenario, he goes either No. 1 to the Wolves or No. 2 to the Lakers.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 1 | PLAYER CARD
2D'Angelo RussellCOLLEGE: Ohio StateHT: 6-5WT: 193POS: PG
2014-15 STATSPPG 19.3RPG 5.7APG 5
Russell is in a two-way scrum with Okafor for No. 2 on most NBA boards. In speaking with numerous GMs and scouts, it appears Russell has gained a slight edge over Okafor, but it's very, very close. Usually size rises as we get closer to the draft, but with the elite play of Stephen Curry and James Harden this season, and a renewed focus on the 3-point shot in NBA offenses, Russell's shooting and playmaking ability actually might be more coveted than Okafor's old-school low-post game. Analytically, Russell ranks No. 1 or No. 2 on most models used by NBA teams. Russell's draft window looks pretty small. He should go either No. 2 to the Lakers or No. 3 to the Philadelphia 76ers. In the unusual circumstance that he falls, I don't see him getting past the New York Knicks at No. 4.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 3 | PLAYER CARD
3Jahlil OkaforCOLLEGE: DukeHT: 6-11WT: 275POS: C
2014-15 STATSPPG 17.3RPG 8.5BPG 1.4
Okafor still is a highly coveted prospect but has lost ground in recent weeks to both Towns and Russell. His style of play is the major culprit. Teams are looking for versatility, playmaking, shooting and rim protection. While Okafor has the most polished low-post game in the draft with excellent size and length for his position, he doesn't check any of the "en vogue" boxes at the moment. He's still heavily in the mix at No. 1 to the Wolves, No. 2 to the Lakers and No. 4 to the Knicks.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 2 | PLAYER CARD
4Emmanuel MudiayCOLLEGE: ChinaHT: 6-5WT: 196POS: PG
Mudiay still is one of the harder players to get a read on right now. As I wrote on Tuesday, the fact that he's been hard for NBA teams to evaluate has hurt his stock a bit. But it doesn't mean he hasn't been improving. I was absolutely wowed with his workout, and I suspect the Lakers (who he worked out for on Saturday), Knicks (worked out for them on Tuesday), Sixers and Timberwolves will all be impressed as well. It wouldn't surprise me if he ends up No. 2 by the end of the process. Not only is he a great athlete with great size for his position, he has rare maturity for a 19-year-old. Mudiay has a great chance to be an All-Star, and in a head-to-head workout, I think he'd give Russell all he could handle -- maybe more. Mudiay is in the mix with the Lakers at No. 2, the Sixers at No. 3 and the Knicks at No. 4. I think his floor is the Magic at No. 6.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 4 | PLAYER CARD
5Kristaps PorzingisCOLLEGE: LatviaHT: 6-11WT: 220POS: PF
11.6 PPG | 4.8 RPG | 46 percent from 3 in 21 MPG

Porzingis just arrived in the United States last weekend and is planning a major workout in Las Vegas for NBA teams on Friday. It will be the only workout Porzingis will do before the draft. He will fly to a few teams and do interviews, but this one workout will likely solidify his stock in one direction or the other. I'll be there in Vegas to report on the whole thing, but until then, it's still a little tough to get a great read on his draft stock. He's in the mix as high as No. 3 to the Sixers. The Magic like him a lot at No. 5 as well. I doubt he would slide past the Kings or the Nuggets at No. 6 or 7.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 5 | PLAYER CARD
6Justise WinslowCOLLEGE: DukeHT: 6-6WT: 222POS: SF
2014-15 STATSPPG 12.6RPG 6.5APG 2.1
The Winslow vs. Mario Hezonja debate continues to rage in NBA front offices around the league. Hezonja is the bigger and better offensive player. Winslow is stronger, a better defender and a better-known quantity. Both have a chance to be terrific. Winslow gets the slight nod over Hezonja on our Big Board when surveying teams around the league, but it's very, very close. One thing that might get Winslow the nod is his place in certain analytics models. According to Real Plus/Minus, Winslow ranks No. 2 in the draft behind Towns. The Knicks are giving Winslow a very serious look at No. 4. The Magic at No. 5, the Kings at No. 6 and the Nuggets at No. 7 are also all seriously considering him.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 6 | PLAYER CARD
7Mario HezonjaCOLLEGE: CroatiaHT: 6-7WT: 200POS: SF
7.7 PPG | 2 RPG | 38 percent from 3 in 16 MPG

Hezonja is right there alongside Winslow as the top wingman on the board. The biggest thing hurting Hezonja is that because of team commitments, he's unable to interview and work out for NBA teams. While scouts have done their due diligence and scouted him heavily in Spain, his playing time and role with the team have been very inconsistent, especially lately. He might very well have overtaken Winslow had he been able to attend workouts. Nevertheless, Hezonja's range is pretty similar to Winslow's. He could go as high as No. 5 to the Magic. I don't think he slides past the Hornets at No. 9. The Nuggets and Pistons are also seriously in play for him.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 7 | PLAYER CARD
8Willie Cauley-SteinCOLLEGE: KentuckyHT: 7-1WT: 242POS: C
2014-15 STATSPPG 8.9RPG 6.4BPG 1.7
Cauley-Stein is the last guy on this Big Board who has a good shot of going in the top five. He's widely regarded as the best defender in the draft, and from everything I saw in two workouts in L.A. last week, he's living up to the hype as a player who can guard five positions on the floor. Players with his size, athletic ability and defensive instincts don't come along every day. He, too, is heavily in the mix for the Knicks at No. 4, the Magic at No. 5 and Kings at No. 6. If he doesn't go there, however, he could be in for a bit of a slide. But there's no way he'll get past the Pacers at No. 11.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 8 | PLAYER CARD
9Myles TurnerCOLLEGE: TexasHT: 6-11WT: 239POS: PF
2014-15 STATSPPG 10.1RPG 6.5BPG 2.6
Turner is another player hoping to have a coming-out party in Las Vegas on Friday. He'll join Porzingis in that big workout in front of a number of top NBA GMs and scouts. Turner has been working on his athleticism and his running technique, and the word from trainer Joe Abunassar is that he's improved significantly. Given Turner's size, skill set and potential, he could be a real draft sleeper. On pure upside, he's a top-five talent. I'm not sure there's a team in the top five that will take him, but the Kings at No. 6, the Nuggets at No. 7, the Pistons at No. 8, the Heat at No. 10 and the Pacers at No. 11 are all taking a close look at Turner. The Jazz at No. 12 or the Suns at No. 13 probably are his floor.

10Cameron PayneCOLLEGE: Murray StateHT: 6-2WT: 183POS: PG
2014-15 STATSPPG 20.2RPG 3.7APG 6
In the past two months, Payne's rise on draft boards has been incredible. Payne didn't crack our Big Board until April, when he debuted at No. 20. He moved up to No. 15 on Big Board 9.0 and then up to No. 11 on Big Board 10.0. Now he's cracked the top 10 and is getting interest from the Lakers, Knicks and Kings -- all teams drafting in the top six. What gives? His combination of quickness, length and scoring and passing ability is clearly intriguing teams. I like him, but I wonder whether teams are getting a little too caught up in the hype. I'm projecting him to go to the Pacers at No. 11. The Kings at No. 6, the Hornets at No. 9 and the Thunder at No. 14 are other real possibilities.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 11 | PLAYER CARD
11Stanley JohnsonCOLLEGE: ArizonaHT: 6-6WT: 242POS: SF
2014-15 STATSPPG 13.8RPG 6.5APG 1.7
Johnson came to Arizona with a ton of hype from NBA people who loved his size, strength and leadership. His season at Arizona was solid, but it raised questions about his athleticism and motor, especially defensively. That's led to a lot of different opinions on Johnson. Some teams still have him ranked in the No. 5 to 10 range. Others rank him in the 15 to 20 range. The Pistons, Hornets, Heat, Pacers, Jazz and Suns seem like the best bets to take him.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 10 | PLAYER CARD
12Kelly OubreCOLLEGE: KansasHT: 6-7WT: 203POS: SF
2014-15 STATSPPG 9.3RPG 5APG .8
Oubre is another controversial prospect. On sheer physical tools and upside, he belongs five or six spots higher on the board. He's one of the biggest wings in the draft, is a very good athlete, and has the potential to be a coveted "3-and-D"-type player. The question marks all center on his maturity and work ethic after he got off to a very rocky start at Kansas. His trainer, Drew Hanlen, swears he's one of the hardest-working players he's ever trained and that his improvement has been dramatic the past few months. If teams see that in workouts, he'll go much higher than projected here. He has the same sort of window that Johnson does -- Pistons, Hornets, Heat, Pacers, Jazz and Suns. I could also see the Thunder rolling the dice on him at No. 14.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 18 | PLAYER CARD
13Trey LylesCOLLEGE: KentuckyHT: 6-10WT: 242POS: PF
2014-15 STATSPPG 8.7RPG 5.2BPG .4
Lyles continues one of the quietest campaigns in recent memory to be a lottery pick. There's zero buzz about him, but when you press NBA teams, virtually all of them have him ranked somewhere in the lottery on their boards. Figuring out where he finally lands is the question. The Pistons seem like his ceiling right now. I'm told they're the highest team interested. The Pacers and Jazz are two other teams that are fans. I think the Celtics at No. 16 and the Bucks at No. 17 are his floor.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 12 | PLAYER CARD
14Devin BookerCOLLEGE: KentuckyHT: 6-6WT: 206POS: SG
2014-15 STATSPPG 10RPG 2APG 1.1
Booker couldn't be entering the league at a better time. The NBA is hungry for elite 3-point shooters and Booker stands as one of the two or three best shooting prospects in the draft. He's got a quick release, deep range and plays with a high basketball IQ. He also tested surprisingly well in some of the athletic testing at the draft combine. He also has the same draft window as Johnson and Oubre -- essentially, the teams picking No. 8 to 14 could all use a shooter. The Hornets at No. 9 seem especially interested.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 13 | PLAYER CARD
15Frank KaminskyCOLLEGE: WisconsinHT: 7-1WT: 231POS: C
2014-15 STATSPPG 18.8RPG 8.2BPG 1.5
Kaminsky was the national player of the year, but it's hard for skinny seniors to get lots of lottery love. Teams love his shooting ability and high basketball IQ, but there's a pretty fierce debate about which position he'll play in the NBA someday. The Heat appear to be his ceiling at No. 10. The Pacers, Jazz, Suns, Hawks and Bucks are the other teams that could draft him in the first round.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 14 | PLAYER CARD
16Bobby PortisCOLLEGE: ArkansasHT: 6-11WT: 246POS: PF
2014-15 STATSPPG 17.5RPG 8.9BPG 1.4
Portis has received strong reviews wherever he's worked out. He has great size, a terrific motor, a good rebounder and shooter. He remains one of the safest picks in the draft. Portis' draft range starts at the Pacers and includes the Jazz, Hawks, Celtics and Bucks. I believe his floor is the Wizards at No. 19.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 16 | PLAYER CARD
17Sam DekkerCOLLEGE: WisconsinHT: 6-9WT: 219POS: SF
2014-15 STATSPPG 13.9RPG 5.5APG 1.2
Dekker is garnering some very positive reviews from teams in workouts. The key for him will be shooting, and several teams are telling me he's shot the ball well and has been aggressive. His range goes from the Pistons at No. 8, and include the Heat (who are big fans), Pacers, Jazz, Suns, Hawks and Bucks.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 15 | PLAYER CARD
18Rashad VaughnCOLLEGE: UNLVHT: 6-5WT: 199POS: SG
2014-15 STATSPPG 17.8RPG 4.8APG 1.6
Vaughn's terrific workout in Santa Monica a few weeks ago in front of a bunch of NBA scouts and executives was an eye-opener. He shot the ball as well as any prospect I've seen so far and showed some explosion getting to the basket. He's carried that strong play over into workouts with the Lakers, Heat, Warriors, Pacers and Bulls and has put himself in the mix for the late lottery, starting as high as Indiana at No. 11. The Thunder, Suns, Hawks, Bucks, Raptors, Mavs and Bulls are also giving him looks.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 23 | PLAYER CARD
19Jerian GrantCOLLEGE: Notre DameHT: 6-4WT: 198POS: PG
2014-15 STATSPPG 16.5RPG 3APG 6.7
Grant's workouts have been strong, but he's still battling perceptions that his age limits his upside. Teams drafting to hit a home run will likely pass. But teams that love his experience, playmaking ability and toughness are fans. His range starts at the Thunder at No. 14. Other teams interested include the Rockets, Raptors, Mavs and Bulls.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 17 | PLAYER CARD
20Kevon LooneyCOLLEGE: UCLAHT: 6-9WT: 222POS: PF
2014-15 STATSPPG 11.6RPG 9.2BPG .9
Looney didn't really help himself at a pro day he participated in L.A. a few weeks back. He went through a hard workout and struggled to make shots. But in the ensuing few weeks, he's helped himself in subsequent workouts. He still has some of the best upside of any player in the draft and teams seem more comfortable that his sports asthma condition can be controlled with proper conditioning and medication. His range starts with the Pistons at No. 8. The Jazz, Suns, Celtics and Wizards are other strong contenders.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 19 | PLAYER CARD
21R.J. HunterCOLLEGE: Georgia StHT: 6-6WT: 185POS: SG
2014-15 STATSPPG 19.7RPG 4.7APG 3.6
Hunter is right there with Booker as one of the top shooters in the draft -- even if he did miss a lot of shots this season. Workouts have gone well, with several teams claiming he's the best shooter they've seen in this year's draft. That could get him looks as high as the Thunder at No. 14, the Hawks at No. 15, the Bucks at No. 17, the Mavs at No. 21 and the Bulls at No. 22.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 21 | PLAYER CARD
22Tyus JonesCOLLEGE: DukeHT: 6-2WT: 185POS: PG
2014-15 STATSPPG 11.8RPG 3.5APG 5.6
Jones hurt his back in a session in Houston and won't be working out for a while. Knowing the shenanigans Rockets general manager Daryl Morey has pulled in the past, I wouldn't be shocked if the "injury" might be a promise by the Rockets to select him at No. 18 if he shuts down his workouts. The Rockets have been on him for a while. He does have suitors higher than the Rockets. The Nuggets and Thunder have both shown interest. But the odds are pretty high that he doesn't get past Houston at No. 18.

23Rondae Hollis-JeffersonCOLLEGE: ArizonaHT: 6-7WT: 211POS: SF
2014-15 STATSPPG 11.2RPG 6.8APG 1.6
"If Hollis-Jefferson could shoot, he'd be a top-10 pick" is the refrain from every GM in the league. He might be the best wing defender in the draft. He has elite athletic abilities, high character and a high motor. But with the league emphasizing 3-point shooting more than ever, his stock is in flux. I think the Celtics at No. 16 are probably his ceiling. The Raptors are another strong possibility at No. 20. Ditto for the Blazers at No. 23.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 22 | PLAYER CARD
24Delon WrightCOLLEGE: UtahHT: 6-6WT: 181POS: PG
2014-15 STATSPPG 14.5RPG 4.9APG 5.1
Wright is another wild card. For all the talk about him being a senior and lacking upside, there are several teams that want to be playoff contenders and seem to like him a lot. He's one of the most NBA-ready players in this draft, and the Thunder, Rockets, Raptors, Mavs, Bulls and Cavs will all give him looks.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 26 | PLAYER CARD
25Justin AndersonCOLLEGE: VirginiaHT: 6-6WT: 231POS: SF
2014-15 STATSPPG 12.2RPG 4APG 1.7
Anderson has been impressive both in workouts and interviews and after a lot of hand wringing, more teams seem to be convinced that his hot shooting this season at Virginia wasn't a fluke. His ceiling is probably Milwaukee at No. 17. The Bulls at No. 22, the Blazers at No. 23 and the Cavs at No. 24 are three other strong contenders to draft him.

26Montrezl HarrellCOLLEGE: LouisvilleHT: 6-8WT: 253POS: PF
2014-15 STATSPPG 15.7RPG 9.2BPG 1.2
After having some of the steadiest draft stock of any player on our Big Board for the last two seasons, Harrell has struggled to get traction the past few months as teams have focused on his lack of elite size and inconsistency at Louisville. "If you're going to be a little guy playing the 4," one GM said, "you better play your ass off every possession." Harrell did at times, but now in workouts he's learning that has to come every day. The Wizards at No. 19 are probably his high spot. The Blazers, Spurs and Nets at No. 29 are other landing spots.

27Terry RozierCOLLEGE: LouisvilleHT: 6-2WT: 190POS: PG
2014-15 STATSPPG 17.1RPG 5.6APG 3
Rozier had a strong showing at the draft combine and continues to draw praise from teams in the draft. They see him more as a defensive stopper and energy guy coming off the bench right now, but Rozier thrived in his first season at Louisville. His ceiling is the Rockets at No. 18 -- he has several fans there. The Bulls, Cavs and Nets are other options.

28Chris McCulloughCOLLEGE: SyracuseHT: 6-9WT: 199POS: PF
2014-15 STATSPPG 9.3RPG 6.9BPG 2.1
McCullough is widely regarded as a value pick in the late first round. Had he stayed in school, he could've been a lottery pick next year. He's athletic and versatile. He's just raw. The Blazers at No. 23, the Spurs at No. 26 and the Nets at No. 29 are good options. In fact, I'm told there's almost no way he falls past Brooklyn at No. 29.

29Jarell MartinCOLLEGE: LSUHT: 6-9WT: 239POS: PF
2014-15 STATSPPG 16.9RPG 9.2BPG .7
Martin's athleticism and improved shooting seem to be bringing him back into favor with scouts. He'll also work out in front of NBA teams in Las Vegas on Friday, and a strong showing there could help his stock. He was widely regarded as a potential lottery pick coming out of high school. The Blazers, Spurs and Celtics are his best bets in the first round.

30Christian WoodCOLLEGE: UNLVHT: 6-11WT: 216POS: PF
2014-15 STATSPPG 15.7RPG 10BPG 2.7
Wood has the talent of a lottery pick. He has great size, athleticism and skill. But as I wrote on Monday, teams seem to be very turned off right now. The feedback from his interviews at the draft combine and in workouts has been disappointing. Teams seem concerned about both his focus and his motor. He looks to be in real danger of sliding into the second round despite his unique skills for a big guy.

I've been saying this to my barber who's also a Lakers fan. He wants Okafor. I've wanted Russell all along if we can't get Towns.

I can see Russell and Clarkson together in the backcourt together for a very long while. That would be some ridiculous size and skill back there.

from what I'm hearing the Lakers saw enough in Okafor to keep him ahead of Russell...but a potential Russell and Clarkson backcourt in the future...or moving Clarkson even...

Russell has to get strong consideration.

RE: if no Towns, you have to consider Russell wtih Oakafor

He may very well turn out to be a stellar pro. I just don't think, as per the article cited above, that he's as quick as he needs to be for the pro level right now.

My tune may change if and once he begins working out, skills and strength, at the NBA level. I'd love to have Cap teaching him and would hope that he's more receptive than Bynum was.

Russell just appears to have the flash and skills to partner well with Randle and Clarkson along with some older vets.

I'd like either of three (in order of preference):

Towns
Russell
Okafor

can't say it makes much sense for the LAL to draft him

with their franchsie history w/big men

but if something like that were to happen

the hate would be natural

so I'll wait until the draft before I purchase stock.

right now, he could be a bigger CP65 and counting

or the next A.I.

so I'll wait...

Didnt want to play at Louisville, & liked our campus & facilities more than the other schools he visited (you would too..they're 2nd to none)

Big Ten is one of the conferences in CBB & Thad Matta is as real as it gets when he recruits. D'Angelo said he was sick of all the college coaches sucking his dick left and right to get him on campus

http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/sixers/20150615_Could_Embiid_sit_out_another_season__It_s_possible.html

76ers center Joel Embiid may not be available to play at the start of the NBA season after the latest setback in the healing of his right foot, an NBA source said Sunday. There's also a legitimate chance that the 7-footer could miss the entire season.

Another source, an Eastern Conference executive, said Sunday that the 76ers' rebuilding plan is doomed if Embiid is unable to remain healthy or play at a high level.

"He was their guy," said the executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity. "They were hoping he was a franchise player. If he's not a franchise player, their whole plan is gone. . . . If Embiid can't play or if he can't reach a superstar level, their plan is really in trouble."

The team announced Saturday night that Embiid has had a setback in his recuperation. The first-round pick from Kansas missed what would have been his rookie season after undergoing surgery last June to repair a stress fracture in the navicular bone in his right foot.

The Sixers had no public statement on Sunday. General manager Sam Hinkie said in a statement Saturday that a recent CT scan, performed in Los Angeles, revealed less healing than anticipated at this point. His recovery time was expected to be five to eight months. But the Sixers handled his rehabilitation with caution and he was expected to sit out the season.

"Our priority remains providing Joel with every opportunity to ensure he has a long and successful NBA career," Hinkie said Saturday. ". . . We will continue to consult with the experienced team of doctors who have been an integral part of his evaluation, while also engaging in dialogue with a broader set of experts and specialists."

It was unknown Sunday if Embiid, 21, would have to undergo another surgery that could sideline him for part of the next season. The team was still gathering information and nothing had been ruled out.

The Cameroonian big man is not expected to participate in the two NBA summer leagues the Sixers will play in next month. It is not known how long he will be sidelined.

"Whatever it is, I doubt you are going to see him play at the start of the season," the NBA source said, pointing out that he expects the Sixers to use even more caution in dealing with Embiid's latest comeback.

Embiid has yet to participate in five-on-five scrimmages with the team. Hinkie said last June that the time line for the center's return was five to eight months, meaning he was scheduled to be able to play by February.

Some sources have said the delay was the result of the foot's not healing properly and Embiid's lackluster work ethic. Those sources said the Sixers did not fully disclose the severity of the injury. The Sixers had said publicly that Embiid's healing process was on schedule before their news release Saturday.

And as they were last season, the Sixers are prepared to keep Embiid out as long as possible in order to focus on his long-term health. As a result, there's a possibility that he could miss another entire season.

"I don't think anyone is surprised at all," the NBA executive said. "Cleveland and Milwaukee would not consider him because of the foot and back injuries."

There's a chance this injury could hinder Embiid's career the way it has for other 7-footers. Like Embiid, Yao Ming suffered a stress fracture in the navicular bone in 2008 and again in 2009. That injury forced Yao to retire in 2011.

A stress fracture in Embiid's lower back kept him out of the Big Twelve and NCAA tournaments during his lone season at Kansas in 2013-14. Embiid initially hurt his back Feb. 8 against West Virginia. After returning to action, he aggravated the injury March 1 at Oklahoma State.

Another league source said Embiid's latest setback would not influence the Sixers' plan in the June 25 draft. He said the team still would use the third overall pick on the best available player regardless of position.

And I think this is just philly panic. In march he wore a walking boot for 2 days and we freaked the hell out. Until there is a presser announcing his career is done I'm under the belief that he's going to suit up.

*scratches head*

as an admitted low volume NCAA watcher

folks were offended when I replied that I thought KAT upped his draft stock via tourney play

and looked like the consensus #1 overall pick

after Oak being the consensus #1 overall pick for the year

now MFers are hyping him dropping to 3

or further

c'mon

the draft is next week

anybody really think the LAL are going to go into FA

NEEDING a C?

with Oak or KAT sitting there for them

I understand your point here but... Do either of the top 2 options at center strike you as ballers that could be dynamic coming out of the gate? So, the Lakers would still need to address the position in FA.

I think the Lakers would go with Russell, if Okafor is still available, only if there is some backdoor handshake agreement for Gasol or some other legit vet FA center. If no solid deal/commitment made, LAL go with Towns/Okafor for sure. Then, play the next couple of years grooming the youngins to eventually reclaim supremacy in the NBA.

RE: Okafor could get you at least 15 ppg, 2 years ago.

ability more than anything. He just appears slow and unable to defend some of the quicker post players in the NBA.

I don't think at all that he will drop past 3 at all though especially with Philly now believing that Embiid is out again for the upcoming season.

And I'm not saying that he is going to be a bust either. I just prefer one player over the other for the LAL. I'd prefer Russell, Clarkson, and Randle as a core that my favorite squad to build around.

where is this coming from

no snark

I'm legit asking

I showed some friends the D' highlights

and one of their replies stated something similar

but all that was referenced was a 'set back'

I googled

and all I found was that it was taking longer than expected for him to recover

which I'm assuming is alluding to his practices/court time

because he's been participating in full practices

are the reports that he's injured again?

In response to Reply # 55


  

          

It's called a "setback" right now. So, Embiid could very well play this season because there are no definitive reports out there for the public. The process is being slowed down for all of them though. So, Philly does need a contingency in case Embiid is going to be out for the upcoming season.

http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2015/06/15/kansas-coach-bill-self-sheds-light-on-joel-embiid-setback/

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — This past weekend was a stressful one for Sixers fans. It started off with reports about D’Angelo Russell cancelling his workout with the Sixers. As if that wasn’t enough to stir up some speculation, the team made it known that Joel Embiid had suffered what some refer to as a setback in the healing process for his foot.

There have been a number of triggers that have Sixers fans contemplating whether to go into full out panic mode. Speculation has started linking Embiid to another surgery and to a second straight season on the bench.

The Sixers have not addressed any of that, only going so far as to make it clear that they are going to be conservative because the doctors have informed them they are not seeing the level of healing they anticipated at this time.

On Monday, Embiid’s college coach, Bill Self, addressed the media and discussed what he knows about the latest chapter in his former pupil’s story.

Benton Smith of KUSports shared some of Self’s comments on Embiid.

“Basically, he’s been working out and everything, and the doctor told him, based on doing the MRIs or X-rays or whatever they do, even though it feels better, it doesn’t look like it’s made the progress they would hope at this stage, so they were gonna slow him down,” Self told the media.

Self also took the time to draw a distinction between a “setback,” and what Embiid has been told.

“By no means, from what has told us, ‘slow down’ does not mean major setback. It means they’re gonna give it a little bit more time to heal before they put him in stressful situations.”

For Sixers fans who were ready to press the panic button, take a step back and take a deep breath. Embiid reportedly was not hurt doing any particular activity and he is not experiencing pain.

Could this be an absolutely dire situation for the franchise? Yes, it absolutely can.

However, it is too early to panic.

of folks I know actually wanna chance Russell over both bigs, regardless of who's available, and I'm not with that.

I'm sure Russell will be good, even great, but I don't see this being a Jordan or Bowie/Hakeem or even KD/Oden type thing. I'd still rather go for a big, even in this new "Small lineup" era.

I'm not at all mad at the pick...seeing the interviews, and full games vs just regular highlights from all players, leads me to believe that this is the right pick for the Lakers.

It's wild though, Lakers fans are EXTREMELY divided. It was so many folks I knew saying we HAD TO get Russell instead of Okafor, and that it's a PG league now...but when we picked him, literally every person who was silent on it was silent because they "KNEW" we were drafting Okafor. And since we didn't, I saw a lot of them mad, saying we set the franchise back by another 20 years, and that we'll regret picking him.

Towns, Okafor, Russell. While Okafor had as good maybe even better rookie season, i like Russell a lot more. I do think he was the better pick for the Lakers.

Give me Porzingis or either one of their pick slots in next year's draft over either one.

And thank the Lakers for continuing to be so sorry that we get their forthcoming Top 3 pick next year for Michael Carter Williams.

RE: No way i'm jumping this ship. He's a stud.

for years to come.

I don't get the expectation that young man, who is two to three years out of high school, is gonna be the most mature mofo at all. And who cares about Byron's time coaching him. That was obviously a fail. In another year or two, he'd have been much better especially if they had the right gets around him.

Magic, despite being my fav player of all-time, is full of shit on this one. Magic had the benefit of stepping into a veteran laden team. He ain't have no choice but to mature and grow up playing with Cap, Jamaal, Norm, and the other vets on that squad. DLo had Nick Young as his old head. LMAO

Hopefully, the young boy is humbled enough by this that he takes maturing and growing more seriously. His initiative to do so has to be there now. And I'm also hopeful he gets the proper mentoring to facilitate that growth. Can't wait to see him play twice a year in DC. Might even take a trip to see him playing in BK.

84. "What reason does Magic have to throw BS shade though?"
In response to Reply # 81


  

          

On its face the move makes sense. Just drafted a PG, added another pick, upgraded at center while also becoming much more flexible financially. He doesn't have any fire to put out here. While I wouldn't take his advice on enunciation or late-night TV, I do think Magic fuckin' Johnson knows a little bit about leadership, winning and the point guard position.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

In response to Reply # 84


  

          

Magic became a better leader after growing and going through some shit. At one point, his teammates didn't wanna or didn't trust him because of how he clung so closely to Dr. Buss.

All that to ask, how can we expect a 19/20 kid to be the leader of your squad? Ball may get that respect because Magic done already called him the car of the franchise. So, he walks in with clout.

I'm hopeful my Lakers continue to ascend. And I'm hopeful DLo finds a way to prove this was a bad decision. I can't hope for and want both.

110. "That's the thing about Russell though..."
In response to Reply # 108


  

          

his instinct is to shoot first, which is fine, and that's why I was excited to watch him next to Lonzo as I feel their skillsets would have meshed really well.

Thing is, with all the talk about his uncanny court vision and killer passing, that wasn't really on display with his time on the Lakers (as much as I would have liked).

Dude's a really creative scorer with the temperament to boot but damn I hope he doesn't get stuck on just that part of his game. I'd love for him to still be a Laker but getting rid of that contract was paramount (esp considering the C depth we have at the moment).

yea his team defense leaves a lot to be desired, but hes a smooth, gifted scorer with great passing potential. His pocket passes off the screen roll are a thing of beauty.

118. "Lonzo's not Chris Paul."
In response to Reply # 112


  

          

His usage rate is way lower compared to the common PG/combo guard archetype that we see today.

That's exactly why I felt Lonzo and D'angelo would have flourished next to each other because Lonzo doesn't *need* the ball in his hands to be productive since he's so quick to move it.

... while still on his rookie contract. Still not exactly sure what you're getting at here.

For the record, I'm not propping up Russell nor am I trying to tear him down. I just felt he would have looked better next to Lonzo than his prior years on the Lakers.

had lost the trust of his teammates with his off the court antics it was best for him to start over somewhere else.

I believe the kid is talented but he’s basically at tweener, not really a 1 or a 2 and doesn’t defend well. He’d be a nice role-player off the bench but he’s not going to start for a good team.

124. ""lost the trust of his teammates" is just narrative."
In response to Reply # 123


  

          

Who knows if it was actually true or not? We can point to the instagram thing with Nick Young but that was at the start of the season.

Fact is, there's no way anyone is taking Mozgov or Deng without taking assets back. Ingram was "untouchable"... and that's kinda it. There's no question cap space was of paramount importance and Russell was collateral damage, but the Lakers weren't pushing to move him for the sake of moving him.

> I believe the kid is talented but he’s basically at tweener, not really a 1 or a 2 and doesn’t defend well.

Sure, I agree.

> He’d be a nice role-player off the bench but he’s not going to start for a good team.

Come on. Like any "good maybe great" player, put them in the right (or wrong) situation and their value changes accordingly. The talent is there, I just hope his vaunted passing doesn't fall by the wayside in chasing points.

with the “vaunted passing” talk, he’s good for a trick pass here and there but he’s not a guy that actively looks to create for others he is a scorer in his mind.

Lonzo has issues if he needs to be the #1 or #2 option on a team, while D'angelo thrives in that role. On the flipside D'angelo can still pass well and playing with a guy like Lonzo can bring that out.

Russell would be a Laker if we didn't have toxic contracts to move. And he and Lonzo would be a great (offensive) backcourt together.

Unless you actually want to stay on topic all this fake news shit is just deflection.

In response to Reply # 105


  

          

They had an opportunity to blow the game open or they couldve brought him in earlier as the lead was disappearing. I think he came in withthe lead at 3 or 5. This is where they miss the ability to stagger Lin/Dlo. Its going to be a good season and if nobody else gets hurt I still see 35+ wins.

That said, I do think sometimes Dlo is a bit trigger happy. He has a green light but sometimes he takes bad shots early in the shot clock before any ball movement

good thing lonzo doesnt have to play alongside an overrated, busted, worn down attention whoring shot chucking legend, lou williams and nick young during his rookie campaign.

edit lol, this is going to be fun. hopefully the lights dont go out on this place before we see Lonzo in year 3

But yes - it was dumb to sign those 2 bums, for sure. If this trade nets us a star then cool but DLo is so good.

career bests this season in points (18.0), minutes (29.2), and assists per game (6.2) while shooting career highs from the field and 3-point range this season

better than lonzo

better than mudiaye

remember when markelle fultz was supposed to be better also? lol


actually, he's better than most of the PGs in the eastern conference not named Kemba or Kyrie



and he's still not fully healthy, playing with a severely undermanned Nets squad


(Dinwiddie has been great too, in all fairness)

18 in the 3rd quarter, 35 so far...splashing from all over with a whole array of offensive moves, shit is beautiful

Over his last seven games, Russell is averaging 22.6 points, 6.9 assists and 3.9 rebounds, shooting 49.6 percent overall and 34.7 percent from 3-point range in 30.5 minutes per game

Nets better give this kid his extension ..ASAP

We cleared out cap space, DLo got a much needed re-boot, and the Nets got a very talented player still growing into his potential.

>it was a major wake-up call and some guys need that.


Now that I own a home in Brooklyn, and have pretty much chosen to put down roots here, I hope the Nets sign him to a max extension so I have a reason to re-up on Nets season tickets (Barclays is literally 2 stops from my apartment)

hopefully they pull off a big free agent this summer

*fingers crossed*

He might not be the best one on his team. And Simmons, Lowry, and Dragic are all clearly better.

He's been amazing this month and solid this season, though; maybe what you said'll be true by next year even.

But right now? Come onnnnnnnnnnnnn.

Among 89 players who have averaged 30.0+ mpg since Jan. 1.,
Russell’s defensive rating (103.7) is eighth-best in the NBA, trailing only Lonzo Ball and Donovan Mitchell among guards.

dropped 40 in his bday, busted Kembas ass and took home the W


D'Angelo Russell went nuclear down the stretch during a 117-115 win over the Hornets on Saturday, matching his career-high 40 points with one rebound, seven assists, two steals, one block and six 3-pointers in 35 minutes. - rotoworld


the next night he goes out and buries the Spurs


Russell passed Deron Williams for second place on the franchise's single-season 3-pointers made list (h/t Michael Scotto), finishing 9-of-19 from the field and 5-of-11 from long range with eight assists, seven rebounds, one steal, one block and three turnovers. Brooklyn is sitting in 6th place in the East and Russell is proving that his All-Star bid was well deserved.

MAX CONTRACT, NOW.

per rotoworld

"Russell couldn't miss in the final quarter and scored at will, leading his team into contention, while letting Jared Dudley and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson get the glory. Dudley hit the go-ahead 3-pointer late, and RHJ made a circus shot for the game-winner with 0.8 seconds left. DAR had four rebounds, 12 assists, four steals and six 3-pointers, to go along with his 44 points, and might be looking at a max contract in his near future"

I called him at the draft the best PG prospect since Kyrie. He did nearly 16/4/5 as a 21 year old. Why did people sell? Because he recorded his teammate one time? SMH.

A year 4 All Star is...about right.

The trade probably was the best thing to happen to him, and I STILL don't know if he and Lonzo could have co-existed (D'Lo seemed to have it out for him but their play styles would have been great together).

My goodness Mitch, Jimmy, Magic, and Rob have been terrible.

They traded Zubac for Mike fucking Muscala.

They could have waited to see what offers Randle would get. Instead, they renounced him, and he signed for 2/18.

They signed goddamn KCP.

They signed goddamn Lance Stephenson.

They signed Michael Beasely.

NONE of those things have anything to do with Deng or Mozgov, and yet they're all very very stupid.

Randle wanted a multi-year deal from the Lakers and they wanted to save cap space for this summer.

It was all about getting guys they would sign 1-yr deals to retain cap space for this summer. If they strike out on everybody this summer then it will be time to talk shit.

The Nets have done a great job developing young talent but they will soon face the same issue all teams in their position have to face is those young guys they developed will want to get paid.

The Nets have done a great job of implementing culture and processes for all their players. DLo himself said him getting dealt led him to changing his daily habits and really creating a daily routine. So critical.

In response to Reply # 180


  

          

so that kind of got things off to a bad start. There was some injury stuff that maybe weighed in year 2. Plus his stupid video thing made him a bit unpopular.

Most of that stuff is pretty superficial in hindsight. He also seems like he would have been a really good fit in what Luke was trying to do offensively if they'd have been patient with him. Then again, maybe props to Kenny Atkinson for highlighting his strengths and overlooking some of the stuff he doesn't do well yet? Maybe he wouldn't have turned into the guy he is today if he'd played under Luke.

It also kind of underscores the Lakers lack of patience and ability to develop players in general. Picking a raw 19 year old PG and then giving up on him after 2 years before he's even old enough to drink doesn't seem like something most good franchises would do.

way back when all i said was i didnt trust him as a primary ballhandler. with levert, thats not as big of an issue. caris is a more than competant ballhandler and initiator.
