Kansas' Jackson, Duke's Tatum headline forwards in NBA draft

Kansas' Jackson, Duke's Tatum headline forwards in NBA draft”

The quick takeaway from this is that if we view this as simply a swap of players, my models project that it's more likely that the Sixers got the better player out of the deal, even without considering the consensus outside of Waltham, MA.

He wouldn't comment on any of the potential trades the Celtics were rumored to have been offered Thursday, but did say "It was a little blown out of proportion; I'll leave it at that". "I felt like they made it pretty clear who they were going to draft with the No. 1 pick, so I didn't really feel like it was worth either of our times for me to work out with them". Yet while the draft isn't as integral to building up a championship-level depth chart as it is in the National Football League, it's still the easiest way for teams to land franchise players.

Bilas agrees: "I don't see this as an eight-man draft at all".

The Boston Celtics got the player they had wanted all along in the 2017 NBA Draft, taking Duke product Jayson Tatum with the No. 3 overall pick.

San Antonio also picks at No. 59, which is a good spot to take an global prospect and stash him overseas for a couple of years. In almost all versions of my draft models Lonzo Ball is slightly ahead of Fultz. The Rockets also pick at No. 45, so they'll have a chance to get two people from that list, if they want. "They are not going to challenge Cleveland in the next couple of years", Bilas predicted.

Boston desperately needed someone who could create their own shot on the perimeter and give the offense a shot in the arm. He should immediately make an impact with the Sixers and has the potential to be one of the best scoring guards in the National Basketball Association. His perimeter shooting needs works, however, added Bilas. A lot of the team's decision depends on who the Lakers go for, specifically regarding Ball.

"Jonathan Isaac is a terrific young talent that doesn't have quite the exposure maybe as some of the other guys that played at Duke and Kansas", he continued. "I think we are in a very good spot this year with major franchises drafting early and players from established programs".

Tatum also needs to show better consistency in his catch-and-shoot game. For example, Kawhi Leonard may not have ended up the player he has become if he had stayed with the Pacers rather than ending up with Gregg Popovich and the Spurs.
