6'6 SF freshman from Auburn, projected to go in the top 10. Very good defender + slasher with limited shooting. Seems to have high bball IQ.


Is he on the Cavs radar?

I love him. I think he would be a good fit too. The question is, can he develop a shot. I have faith in the shooting coaches. His finishing and defense are just so good.

I wish he was slightly larger so he could play SF for sure.

I think he would be in the running if we were to get the 5th or 6th pick

Him or Vassell. I like both. I don't mind getting a solid dude who can defend this year. Okongwu fits this mold too. I think all have some offensive upside and I'm desperate for some defense.

Some defense would be very welcomed.

I'm having a hard time deciding between Okoro and Vassell at 5. Maybe the Bulls will make it an easy decision.

I LOVE Okoro's slashing game. His finishing and athletic ability is nuts. Might be a decent point forward someday too with his playmaking skills.

Completely out on both.

When you draft in the top 5 you need to draft players with Superstar/All Star potential. Both of these guys scream average role players at the next level.

You have 6 reasonable options IMO.

1. Edwards
2. Wiseman
3. Ball
4. Deni
5. Haliburton
6. Toppin

So if we had fallen to 6 we’d be allowed to draft a player that fits our team over Toppin who will just add to our defensive woes and Haliburton who doesn’t make much sense at all unless we trade Garland who we drafted last year because of the very reason you’re suggesting? Damn

Daamn son you just totally owned him like a little girl trying to learn to ice skate while doing 360s on the basektball court on top of James Harden's beard!

I like Okoro but I'm not sure I like him at #5.

i didn't try to one up him I'm just getting my point across I don't see Toppin as a good fit because his weakness is our biggest weakness and think drafting Haliburton just has us going in circles

I mean, obviously I'd take either Wiseman or Ball over him, probably Deni too. I also like Haliburton but I don't think they will draft anything but a sure thing PG if they were to take one.

Toppin is just...way too much Kevin Love but without the overwhelming offensive skill. I don't trust him to be anything more than Donyell Marshall.

I don’t see it with Okoro. And I’m really trying. I need more on the offensive end. Whatever people are seeing with regards to athleticism and slashing, I’m missing.

11-17-2020 update: I believe I was wrong now that I'm looking deeply into the film.
