    Body Fat - 8.4% a couple of other guys were higher, but only Naz Reid (14%) was over 10%. Next highest, Shamorie Ponds at 5'11.5", 180.0 pounds, but body fat at 9.8%. Jontay Porter, at 6'9.75" weighed in at 210.4 pounds, but at 8.5% body fat, and PJ Washington at 6'6.5", 230.4 pounds, body fat 8.6%. Just can't figure out how they calculate that. Not overly happy with the 8.4%, but not overly concerned either. TNT has massive hands, too. His hands comp with most of the PF/C, not with most G/SF. THT's hands are actually bigger than Bol's! Also, apologies to Admiral Schofield, I mentioned earlier that he is 6'4" and weighed in at 240.6 - his Body Fat is actually only 6.4%

    Naz Reid PF 14% 6'9.5'' 255.8 7'3.25'' - wow, somebody's been chowing down! - Naz Reid 14% body fat!

    I'm going to wait until a little bit more info comes out. The 6'2.5" in socks, 6'4" in shoes isn't really a surprise. The 7'1.25" wingspan is even slightly bigger than expected. The 235.4 pounds could be bad, it could be okay; I wish the body fat % was listed on the Givony sheet. Anxious to find out how THT does on that %, and how his speed/vertical testing numbers come out. There is one that really jumped out at me though - Admiral Schofield at 6'4" in socks, 6'9.75" wingspan, but 240.6 pounds. Coby White at 6'3.5" but only a 6'5" w/s was also a little surprising.

    What is his body fat %, and where did you find his measurements? I haven't had much luck finding combine stats yet.

    Probably not, as we don't have any real cap room to sign him to an offer sheet (RFA) unless we waive Ross, Vuc, and Martin, which would still only bring us to about $15M. Even then, Boston could still match, leaving us with nothing. Also, it would mean we already gave up on developing Fultz. Rozier already has shown he isn't happy/comfortable as a bench player.

    Very true, that other teams have mostly caught up to the Spurs as far as international scouting has gone. I tend to agree that 2nd round picks have limited value, and most guys picked there do tend to bounce around before getting it together. I'm not saying we need to load up on 2nd round picks, just that with our current front office they may have more value now than they did in the past.

    I think the real point is that good management is able to find those second round contributors with more consistency, that is part of how they establish themselves. The Spurs are good at it, and used the late second round for "draft and stash" players. It is no accident that 40% of the MIL/TOR starting lineups are 2nd round picks, 20% are "late" second round picks. It is a testament to the management of the teams that found them. They were selected by Milwaukee, Detroit, Cleveland, and the Lakers (Gasol, who was immediately part of the trade package for his brother!). It is promising to me that WeltHam had a hand in one of those 2nd rounders, and found Giannis with #15. It says something about their ability to assess talent. So, I think that your point about little value at the end of the second round is a little simplistic; finding value there is definitely difficult, it isn't there every year, it has to fit your team, and the odds for finding it greatly depend on who is doing the looking. I think we may finally have the right guys in charge to be able to find it, now it is a matter of the rest. We don't have a lot of slots open right now, even if we did find it, now you have to find a space for it. You don't give up an Iwundu for a late 2nd rounder who gives you 75% of what he does, there isn't a real value there; but if you find someone who gives you more than Frazier, you consider waiving him and opening his slot up.

    It is interesting that the top player on each team was the #15 pick in their respective drafts, but is it anything?!?

    If he comes in to workouts/interviews 10-12 pounds lighter, I absolutely take him; conversely, if he shows up weighing 250, I probably take him off my list of prospects.

    Nice read, and does a good job of balancing the flashes he's shown so far without going overboard. I think once this kid gets in an NBA strength and conditioning program, we will see a lot more of those flashes. I'm relatively high on this kid, and would be okay with him at the #16. A guy who can swing from PG/SG/SF and even some small-ball PF strikes me as a nice piece to have. I'm anxious to see how he measures out at the combine.

    Welcome to the club-I first mentioned this kid back in mid-February. I’m not sure if he is going to be a good fit for what we’re building, but a definite dark-horse that I wouldn’t be surprised to see us grab at #16. He does strike me as a WeltHam kind of player.

    He’s a couple years away from starting, with a high ceiling; but is projected to go 8-12. I doubt he falls to 16.

    I don't think we are going to find too many surprises now until the draft combine - there are always some guys measurements that we don't expect; height, wingspan, vertical, speed, etc. And then, there are usually a few guys that play better (or worse) in the scrimmages. I don't expect many (if any) surprises between now and then, as individual workouts/interviews don't usually happen until after the combine. There just isn't that much organized basketball for the potential draftees to be playing in right now. It's mostly just individuals working out, and maybe occasional pickup games, but not much for us to hear about/see right now.
