Eventhough we don't currently own a pick, rumors are swirling that Jackson will get a 2nd rounder and maybe even a 1st round pick.
We would most likely draft in late 1st round and 2nd round. Here are some prospects to keep an eye on:
P.J Hairston- Strong athletic SG/SF with potential to develop a nice consistent jumper. He has already worked out for the Knicks which led to speculation that the Knicks will make moves to get a 1st round pick...possibly for Hairston. Played in the D league last season due to dropping out of NCAA for some stupid illegal issues (drove rented cars)
Isaiah Austin- Big lanky 7'1 Center from Baylor that is known for rim protection, rebounding, and offensive upside. Has the tools to develop into a two way center like Roy Hibbert but lacks the strength (needs to add weight). Can take the ball off the dribble and has a running hook shot with both hands, very versatile big man. Could be a sleeper pick late 1st or early 2nd round. weaknesses: lacks aggressiveness but when he is, he excels.
Patric Young- Strong PF/C from Florida capable of playing spot minutes at the 5- has an NBA ready body and is a bruiser type that we need..strengths: Strength and chiseled frame, quickness and athleticism, developed finishing moves and jump-hooks with both hands, great all-around defender. Weaknesses: raw and needs to work on rebounding...
Jusuf Nurkic- Bruising Center at 6'11 280 pounds reminds me of a Nikola Pecuvic...
Bogdan Bogdanovic- Very versatile SG that can play multiple positions at 6'6- could be a sleeper manu ginobili type...
Point Guards- Tyler Ennis (1st round), Shabazz Napier (1st round), Semaj Christon (early 2nd round), Jehii Carson (early 2nd round)...etc. Many point guards in the draft to choose from?
Who do you think we should pick for 1st round and 2nd round assuming Jackson gets these picks via trade or payment?
