If they draft a wing in the lottery would love to see them acquire pick in the late 1st/early 2nd to grab Perry or Reed.
Why is he so low? I see late 1st early 2nd round. He is 20 and quite big and strong. He has enough perimeter skills, he really looks like a modern 4. Is it his school? Solid improvement from year to year.It's been fun watching film on him. On one hand, at Mississippi State, he's the offensive focal point at PF. He suffered a bit from playing with a mediocre PG and a paint-clogging center, but this gave him the opportunity to showcase his perimeter skills. On the other hand, in the U19 World Cup, he played center in a free-flowing offense led by Haliburton and dominated in that role too. You start to realize, wow, I'm looking at the most versatile offensive big in the class. I'm not sure anyone else comes close. He's not perfect, but man, he can beat you in so many different ways.
My only thought is that it must have to do with defense, as he's not a great shot blocker and also isn't a super-switchable guy. I think he'll be decent enough there, though. Here's a fun comparison (per-40):Why is he so low? I see late 1st early 2nd round. He is 20 and quite big and strong. He has enough perimeter skills, he really looks like a modern 4.

His body is big enough he doesn't seem to fit the tweener label, but he he does make you question if he could play the 3.
Just seems versatile while still being good at typical 4/5 stuff.
I like Vassell and Okoro too, but in terms of perimeter defense specifically, I'm feeling more and more convinced that Green is "the guy" in this draft. Maybe he fouls *slightly* more than I'd like, but other than that, I can't find a single thing to criticize. Strength...quickness...motor...length...fundamentals. He's elite or close to it in every single area.Found this guy's channel watching highlights of prospects. If the cavs go for a defensive wing, wouldnt mind vassell and okoro.
