First of all, let me introduce myself. My name is Cade. I am 12 years old. I’ve been watching basketball for as long as I can remember, and my dream is never to get to the NBA. My father wrote to Pounding The Rock during the 2014 Spurs Championships, but I don’t remember much about it since. But I know basketball goes through my brain 24/7. I’ve been working on my preferred Spurs options for the past few weeks and wanted to share them with you all.
4. Moussa Diabate, great
Diabate has all the tools to be a good rider in this league, he just has to put it all together. He has the length and athleticism to become a good hit blocker, but sometimes he gets lost in defense. He is a great finisher on attack, but not consistent enough to stretch the floor. Diabate manages the field well and has shown flashes as a feeder. He meets Spurs’ need for the front square and has room to rise.
3. Keon Ellis, wing
Ellis had a successful college career as a supreme role player. Ellis won’t completely enchant you with its breathtaking highlights or insane statistics, but he does the dirty work on both sides. With a 6’6-inch 6’10-inch wingspan, Ellis is able to defend multiple positions on the perimeter and add versatility to an already strong defense team. On attack, he is able to hit the triplets and does not need the ball in his hand to be effective. He may not have the positive result you would like in a rebuilding team, but he rushes through every game.
2. Caleb Houstan, wing
Caleb Houstan was in the top ten of the year, but it disappointed many with his poor play. He was called a three-point scorer, but he didn’t hit high shots. He still showed all the tools early on that made him a highly regarded potential customer, and he looks great. 6’8 “, he is great for the winger and moves well on his feet. If you look at the percentages and game numbers, you can see raw talent, plus Spurs’ future start-up.
1. Jaylin Williams, great
If Spurs has a chance to get Williams in the second round, I’m completely over it. Williams is a defender with a high IQ who can communicate, switch to the perimeter and defend extremely well with his strange charge capability. Williams has been giving his marching orders, his manager will not be happy. He showed some promise as a shooter, but he’ll probably have to work for it in the NBA. Becoming a great wise man who can do a little bit of everything can be very valuable.
4. Hugo Besson, guard
Besson is a silky smooth scorer with excellent ball skills. It has tight handles and a wide range of movements that it can put together. One big knock for him is his size and frame. These worries, combined with his poor defense, may not make him the best choice for Spurs. San Antonio has several guards and they need the help of the front square, so I’d love to pass on Besson in that draft.
3. Gabriele Procida, wing
The Procida has an oily, 6’7-inch wing with elite athleticism. Procida is probably not a name many people have heard of, but he looks like a legitimate NBA player. He is a jump-over finisher who can leave room for Dejounte Murray on the floor, and he moves well without the ball. The guard has enough size and length to be in working order. He may be swinging, but it can be useful to have someone like Procida later in the first round.
2. Jake LaRavia, Forward
Jake LaRavia is a versatile do-it-all attacker who has done soaringly. LaRavia has a great protective instinct and a strong frame that keeps you in front of your husband. It can protect low posts or switch to smaller guards. At the end of the attack, LaRavia is able to shoot down three, attack the attacks and reach the edge in the transition. He also has a vision to find open teammates. LaRavia is a definite contribution, and at just 20 years old, it can develop into more than just a role player.
1. Dalen Terry, guard
Dalen Terry would join the Spurs organization and would immediately become a fan favorite. It brings great energy and is a great communicator at both ends of the floor. Terry is a 6’7-inch furious guard who can defend 1-3. He is incredibly versatile in this respect, which is what Spurs seems to be leaning towards. On the other side of the ball, he can be the pick-and-roll initiator or play alongside another ball handler as a slasher. Terry should have a huge impact both on and off the field from day one.
4. Patrick Baldwin Jr., Forward
Baldwin was another man in the top half of the lottery, but after a disappointing season, he fell behind a draft. He has a smooth jumper from the depths that would help improve Spurs’ distance. He played on a terrible team and the defender of the opponents swarmed him. This is not happening in the NBA and he should benefit from a smaller role. But the big blow to him is his athletic ability. Baldwin experimented with a combination of combines near or at the end of every power and agility drill. He should be in danger behind the arc, but he’s not my favorite prospect.
3. Jaden Hardy, guard
Hardy is one of the most electric fuses in its class, with intriguing movements that deliver promising transient flashes. Hardy has a deep range and is able to rise beyond the three-point line. But a guard with poor defensive instincts and minimal effort is not what Spurs should be looking for. He can play both ball and ball, so he has a lot of versatility at that end, but he just doesn’t meet San Antonio’s needs.
2. Marjon Beauchamp, Tiib
Beauchamp is someone many Spurs fans want for a later choice, and I think so. He is a resilient athlete who can run with the guards on the open floor. He may also have untapped creative skills he failed to show in the G-League with ball-guards like Dyson Daniels and Jaden Hardy. He said that Spurs is the dream destination for him earlier this year and he likes their activities. I would be thrilled to add Beauchamp to this list.
1. Tari Eason, on
Tari Eason is someone that many people draw on their big tables, but I’m a little more skeptical about her. Eason is a raw, instrumental striker with great instincts, athletic ability, and wingspan to be a disturbing defender in the NBA. That means his crime is pending. He’s the elite of assaulting a rim, but with a striped blow and limited cognition, I don’t often trust him to create his own blow. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if Spurs decided to take him to nine.
4. Ousmane Dieng, wing
Of all the players who have climbed the tables in the last few weeks, Dieng has been the sharpest rise. After a very weak start to his season, where he rarely contributed anything other than defense, he finally began to show his life song and strike. Dieng was also an underrated manager, and he has a promising turning point as a smooth striker and versatile defender. His body is not yet fully developed and he would be somewhat affordable at the age of nine, but at 6 ’10 Spurs will have to consider this type of skill here.
3. Dyson Daniels, guard
Dyson Daniels is the best teammate. As a game manager, he always makes the right results in an attack. His gaps are not obvious at first glance, but he is said to have made major improvements to his form during the year. Daniels is a great defender on and off the ball, able to cover 1-3 and is widely regarded as one of the top stoppers in this draft. He may not have the best possible ascent because he can’t make his shot, but with everything else he does on the court, the mistake can be overlooked.
2. Jalen Duren, Great
Duren is amazingly talented with amazing size, frame and sportiness. He is built like a bodybuilder and is only 18 years old. Duren has great timing and instincts that make him a blocking force, but he also has the speed to turn off against smaller players from time to time. Due to its ridiculous measurable performance, Duren is able to set strong screens and finish with ease. He is also a talented short-roll feeder who can draw attention to the color and make the right readings, which is why many experts have compared him to Robert Williams. He’s not a shooter and his footwork needs a little improvement, but at such a young age, Spurs could help him work in those areas over time.
1. Jeremy Sochan, Forward
Jeremy Sochan is exactly what Spurs desperately needs – a switchable quartet that can defend any position and act as a link in an attack. Sochan has the speed to defend smaller defenders, but the length and size to cover the dominant low-post opponents. He was one of the leaders in the defensive Baylor defense last season and was just a newcomer. With attractive tools and unique versatility, Sochan poses problems for opposing teams. Sochan is impacted by smart baits and timely cutting. He doesn’t yet have the ability to create or take shots, but he puts his fingerprints everywhere else with his hustle, bustle, character and intangible assets. He would be my choice of nine.
So, here it is, my choice for each Spurs selection. I think you can catch the types of players I like that are versatile players with good protection. I don’t think that’s the exact result of what happens on a draft night, but it’s the players who believe they will fit into the Spurs system right away.
