So this Tyrell Terry kid is intriguing. He probably won't declare if he thinks he'll be a borderline first round pick, but I can dream.

I would also be down with Aleksej Pokusevski as a draft and stash.

Yes he is a nice player. A lot of PG's possibly in this draft.

The De'Aaron Fox type - athletic. fast, quick, ability to finish in the paint and a workable 3pt shot - Cole Anthony, Kira Lewis who btw is still only 18 as a Sophomore.

The Trae Young type - average athlete who succeeds with great ball control, passing ability, body control, 3pt shooting and high bbiq - Nico Mannion Tyrell Terry.

This year there seems to be a higher amount of big PG's - L Ball, K Hayes, T Haliburton, T Maledon and I would include RJ Hampton.

Anthony's in the 7th %ile finishing at the rim, and given his jumper heavy offensive profile I'd lean toward him being more in the Trae Young mold despite Cole's athletic finishes in HS highlight reels. He feels very much like the Reddish of this class - very different players, of course, but two big name HS guys who are older for their class and have real trouble scoring around the bucket. Picking Anthony could really pay off if he's more like the guy he was in AAU/HS, but there's significant risk there since he doesn't have Reddish's defensive upside and positional versatility.

Grant Riller is a guy Mike seems to like based on his Twitter feed, and he's the kind of small school guy who could slip through the cracks to the Lakers. He's not a dynamic passer, making only simple reads, but he can hit a skip pass out of the PnR and is a dynamic scorer at all three levels who really puts downhill pressure on defenses. There's still some upside there if his passing continues to improve, but in the short-term he looks like the kind of sixth man scoring guard/off-ball PG who would really fit playing off of Lebron. And Riller shows some defensive aptitude and at 6'3 200 lbs he's not going to be physically overwhelmed like smaller scoring guards like LouWill.

I want to like Anthony Edwards more than I do. He was my favorite player coming out of high school this past year.
It's tough to explain. But I just don't think he's ties his offensive movements together as fluidly as I thought he would.

On the plus side, I do think he is a better shooter than his %s show. I actually have more confidence in him hitting step back and transition pull up jumpers in the pros than I do of him getting to the hoop and scoring efficiently.

I believe Anthony will figure out how to finish at the rim similar to how BI developed. He has shown in flashes the ability to get into the lane and finish although I feel he forces too much at the rim whereas he should be kicking out or passing to a big/cutter. Has tunnel vision.

I haven't been that high on Riller as I viewed him as a good college player who I questioned if his skills will translate to the NBA.

For sleeper pg's I like what I have seen of Malachi Flynn and for a deep sleeper Jerrick Harding of Weber State.

Btw thanks for turning me on to Tyrell Terry. Caught 2 of his games and he is so smooth and never seems to force his shot or play out of control. With such a deep pg draft he should stay in school another year.

I feel he will really blossom in the NBA with the spacing and pace of the game.

Yes his shooting is inconsistent game to game which for comparison purposes is similar to THT's gleague season. However they both flash their scoring potential which gives hope they will develop into consistent shooters/scorers.
