What Galen Williams brings to OKC Thunder: ‘He’s a very versatile player’

When Santa Clara coach Herb Sindyk was recruiting Jalen Williams, the prospect used to wear a pair of trendy white framed sunglasses. One day, Sindyk attended Williams High School wearing his own similar pair. They laughed so well, that Williams thought it was just too funny…and cliched.

Pac-12 assistant coach on new Thunder guard Jalen Williams

Here’s what the Pac-12 assistant coach had to say about picking Jalen Williams #12: “The great combo keeper who was a nightmare for guarding in P&R situations. He could go down the slope and find the open guy, or score himself. Tough match because of his size. He was able to shoot. Over most guards in the WCC. He shot well from 3. I’m not surprised he caught the attention of so many NBA teams”

Scout Report on Draft No. 12 Choice Galen Williams

I am a buyer of Jalen Williams. It is very difficult to find players with original passing and dribbling abilities who are also 6ft 6 tall with a wingspan of 7ft2.

The idea here isn’t all that different from what the Lakers had when they took Tallinn Horton Tucker and gave him $30 million in his second contract. However, the difference here is that Williams is better at shooting and through passers-by and generally has more skill at basketball.

If you believe in Williams’ shooting ability, it’s hard to see how he totally failed. And if you buy his defensive gear and play making, there are legitimate starting paths here even if he’s not the best isolation maker. At the end of the day, teams should take Williams in the middle of the first round at some point if only because the intersection of skill set with the positional rarity of having skilled winger playmakers would make him a very valuable player if he hits.

Scout Report on Selection Project No. 11 Osman Deng

With Usman Deng, you are betting that your development program is able to highlight his correction. If he shoots, his potential is very high due to the way the game handles and the floor is read. He can easily become a dribbling/passing/shooting threat and is a tall and transferable defender. These types of players are worth their weight in gold in the NBA today.

Ding who’s constantly shooting from the number 3 is someone who turns out to be, at least, a very valuable role player in the course of Nicholas Batum’s mid-to-late career. But if he doesn’t shoot it, the fears will increase a bit, and it becomes somewhat difficult to see how it effectively affects the game on the offensive end. He’s not so creative with the ball in his hand that a good team will want to have the ball all the time. As with many role players in the league, it’s all about betting on the shot. Dieng has enough touch and improvement with the rest of the game, if that happens, I’m willing to bet on him in the middle of the first round.

International boom!

Four back-to-back players, 6 through 9, raised outside the United States were selected: Benedict Mathurin (Canada), Siddon Sharp (Canada), Dyson Daniels (Australia) and Jeremy Suchan (England).

Of course, that’s just more evidence that AAU basketball is the devil, isn’t it? (insert eyeball)

SEC assistant coach on new Wizards goalkeeper Johnny Davis

Here’s what the SEC Assistant Head Coach had to say about choosing Johnny Davis No. 10 “A very competitive winger who bounces well from his position. He has the ability to guard 2-4. Scores well on the edge but needs improvement from behind the arc. Great leader and not afraid of the stage.” .the winning gene.”

Western Executive Conference in the 11th year selection Osman Deng

“Deng didn’t play well at the beginning of the year. Maybe that’s an understatement. So you can look at him as half full or half empty. He was coming from lower level France to the A-League… It’s the men’s league. The team that won it this.” The year Sydney coached RC Buford’s son (Chase).The list is full of guys who have NBAs, American players who have been out of college three or four years.So he’s adjusting to real life away from his home country, New Zealand, and a huge leap in class. And his team wasn’t very good. So that’s all going on. His overall numbers aren’t impressive, but if you look at the last 10 or so games, 11 games in scraps, he’s done some real good things. He’s great. He has a good sense of the game. He has the ability. On the move. He can handle the ball. His shot numbers aren’t impressive, but he’ll cry in games. He’s cool now, he lacks physique. He’ll have to change his body. But for the big guy, there’s a handle and a feel, and when you see him at his best you can score. “.

What Johnny Davis brings to the Washington Wizards

When Jonny Davis returned to campus in Wisconsin last July for the final few weeks of summer training, Badgers coach Greg Jard saw a major shift in his game had already begun. Davis spent the first part of that month in Latvia helping the US Under-19 basketball team win a gold medal at the Basketball World Cup. Upon Davis’ return to Madison, Jared said he saw a “completely different player” who realized he belonged to the best players in the world at his age.

Are Knicks still stalking Jaden Ivey?

There was a lot of talk about the Knicks still stalking Jaden Ivey. My colleague, James Edwards, reported on the Pistons’ plan to keep him, even as he continued to receive calls about him after selection. For what it’s worth, I’m not sure Detroit came close to accepting an offer from the Knicks.

College Assistant Coach 10th Place Choice Johnny Davis

“He had the breakout match (this season, in January) in Bordeaux where he almost single-handedly won the game for them, and he made all these big shots, on the road, down the extension, in high-ball screens. He hit several 3s and was driving hard to the basket. I think. That that drove him to enlist. A bit like (Iowa striker Keegan) Murray in the tournament – he banged late in the year, got back on the ground a bit. He and (Badgers goalkeeper) Brad Davison had a lot to do on their team, I think they They were exhausted. They won the Big Ten season completely, losing to Nebraska in their last home game when they had no loss. So they had to draw in the regular Big Ten season instead of winning outright, and then played horribly the rest of the year. (The goalkeeper Chucky) Hepburn was hit. It wasn’t deep enough. And Johnny Davis was injured in the Nebraska game, and he’s just been a regular player in the last four or five games.”

Scout Report on Johnny Davis’s Choice Project No. 10

The point with Johnny Davis is that he’s a great opponent who can play on both ends of the field. He’s got size, he’s good enough athletically and he’s been very productive. It’s hard to score 20 points per game and be the top ten player of the year. On top of that, I think that an ankle injury late in the year drained some of his athleticism, which really led to a dip in his shooting percentages. He struggled to live up to his shot and created a small amount of separation.

I think he managed to show how small the margin of error is in his game. Davis needs to be able to hit 3s consistently or be able to add a bit of juice from his bounce to class. It has just enough of a touch that you can buy the former, but I’m a little worried about the latter.

I totally buy Davis as kind of a top 20 potential player who becomes a strong rotation player because of his toughness. But I do worry about his rise in star quality due to his lack of transformation. If the coach is able to make some extra blasts from the quick twitch that Davis seems to have in sporting terms, he might be worth picking the lottery and turning out to be two good starting guards. But without it, I’m a little concerned about whether he can be effective enough as a secondary creator given his currently limited swiping ability. If I were to bet on someone to improve, someone with that competitiveness, toughness and a track record of getting better.

What Jeremy Suchan brought to the San Antonio Spurs: His passion is contagious

Jeremy Suchan was the class clown at Baylor. He was firing full shots while shooting, which earned him the nickname “Concussion Protocol” because his miss shots were always in danger of hitting someone. On a road trip to Texas in late February, he spotted a drum installed in the stands and snuck away from the team to go play.
