Whats the take on Branham? Quick look for me makes me think he is a pure offensive SG/SF with weak defensive upside. Not really sure we need Levert with a better shot and weaker playmaking/defense

Was hoping this guy would last until our 2nd rd pick lol, seems he's climbing draft boards

Before we traded for LeVert, I mention him as a potential pick when I thought we might be in the 20s …..I’m careful about editing highlights but I like him.

I’m gonna get killed for this but I would love to take the high upside guy in Jaden Hardy. The fit isn’t perfect by any means but I see that guy being lethal with nba spacing. Someone is going to get a steal with him if he is late lottery-mid 1st.

He might be available much much later as a trade up from the second round. Big reach at 14.

Could be, I think he is going to kill in workouts with his skill set and see him snake into the later lottery but maybe not.

Just give me a wing or Harry at this point. No bigs.

ETA: Sneak*

I haven't watched any other players yet, but that 18 year old out of France is someone who I can't see me moving off of. I don't need to see anyone else. His length, touch, body to build more muscle is what the cavs need at the 3.

Another dude whose giant wingspan disguises the fact that he has really meh athleticism. He has trouble creating separation even in college and ends up trying to score like LeVert, with lots of dribbling and difficult shots near the paint. No thanks.

He also has a super low release point on his perimeter shot, which is terrible for a 6'6'' guy. He won't even get those shots off in the NBA.

No way I see him going in the 1st round.

Nice future bench role player very possible here. Does not do anything great but very solid in a ton of areas.
I'm slowly getting round to different players and good call there. I can see that and possibly more. His usage is so low but he was still productive in limited touches. Terry's size and bball IQ has been standing out from what little I've seen (goodness, he hits the cutter everytime in the highlights). Tenacity too. How's his defense?

This draft has many intriguing players in that 30-40 range. Hoping Cavs don't punt on it unless it's something that's a no brainer kinda trade.

Thinking about Eason and Terry on the floor at the same time at the 2-3 or 3-4, even 1-3? Goodness... So curious with how this draft shakes out!
