Given we picked fairly late Im pretty happy with Sausinskas. Solid wing that has solid efficiency, can pass and play solid defense. Very intelligent as well. Fit's in nicely next to Fox/Cordi/Bridges/Lindell/Michineau in the backcourt.

Romeo Langford looks fantastic. His offense looks like an Elfrid who can shoot the 3 and his defense is slightly above average. His rebounding is a surprise. I didn't expect him to have 60ish rebounding potential so that was a nice bonus and fits my style of play like a glove.

Excited to have a young two-way player and will start my offerings to the basketball gods for a boom!

Really happy I still have a semi-decent Elfrid to model his play after some. Will make shot selection development faster.

Waters has a good foundation, which we knew from our scouting. His development will be essential for our franchise. Waters + Hayes is the long term heart + soul of Indiana.

It turned out pretty close with my scouting, although i hope i wont regret passing up on Gant. The Doom and Gant as early favorites for ROY it seems.

For one of the last picks in the draft, Jalen Harris looks pretty good. Not sure what his shooting ability is like, but a pretty good passer and defender is a nice boost if he can actually shoot. Looks like we have a lot of work to do on his preferences though!

Hoard's SCR and DEF came in as better than I expected. Woodbury is indeed trash outside of rebounding

Gant looks like a beast! No weaknesses outside of his FT shooting. Was not expecting a high DRFL like he has and he already has a HDL/PAS combination as a very low end PG. Excited to see him perform this season!

I was about to trade into the top picks and this was the player I was looking for! Good pick for the Cavs. I know there are some concerns about his efficiency but my scouts didn't look this bad in ths regard.

As expected lots of raw players, but pretty happy overall with my guys, as a good training camp will be huge for them.

now that i am in file to see potentials, i definitely got the low ends on my guys potential wise.

I scouted Jessup 9 times and a most of my scouts came back with his score being in the 70s. I didnt get a single scout below 64 to give me pause that his score rating may stay low. Regardless, he will shoot at such a high percentage that he should still average 15-17 ppg but I was really hoping his SCR would have been in the low 70s instead of 64.

Brodziansky is looking more like a miss. Scouted him 8 times, half of my scouts had his SCR in the high 80s, two others high 70s, and the other two in the low 70s so of course his potential comes in at 72. You would think scouting him 8 times I would have received one scout for him in the 60s for score. Got the low end for him on ORB and Steals as well. Just a whiff and horrible luck there. At least he will be very efficient too.

Teske at pick 15, wasnt a miss but I still got the low ends again. Scouted him 5 times, 3 of my 5 scouts for ORB were 88, 88, 92, the other two were 78 79. So of course his potential is 79. I was hoping his blocks would have been in the 50s too but he is at least starter worthy and with the right team could easily average 17 8 and 1

Jeremiah Martin came in probably close to expected. Will have to see how free agency goes if we decide to sign him or not. But if I dont, someone else certainly will as he could be a solid #2 or #3 PG with range

Good job by BT taking Kabengele over Brown. I had high ends from Brown than Kabengele, but per the norm it seems for me with this scouting period, all of the guys I liked (minus 1 or 2) I received the high ends on.

I almost took brown at 9 and I am glad I didnt.

Hudson's consistency is great, which was my main doubt about him since I didn't interview him. I'm really happy with him ... I think people often overlook consistency/discipline/IQ.

As for Bratec, well, I cannot expect more from a 56th overall selection. In fact, he has some interesting potential in some areas. If he hits those potentials, he could be a good shooter off the bench.

Our first rounders are as expected. Doom is a stud, Bane is a bit lower than I thought but still decent and Adams is a ready to go backup PG. Second rounders are a bit disappointing though and we may end up waiving all of them
So what do you expect when you draft Grabby McHolderson to play your right tackle?

Haven't had a chance to check the file yet but keen to see how some of these rookies look.

Actually pretty happy with our draft overall. Kabengele is exactly what we envisioned and should fit perfectly with the Porter offense we run. He's also great insurance if we decide to move Bol on at some point as we have a replacement now.

Kind of really like Tate too. Can rebound, pass and man defend well enough with a corner three apparently. At 6'4" though and no handles, it remains to be seen how much of a problem that will be if he plays guard but at forward, that height could be a concern. My CSL PJ Tucker I guess.

Another kid we took via trade also looks decent to be a rotation player and make one of our contracted players available.

With the rest, I love Doumbouya. Andrei is putting together some serious young talent and with Varnado, Culver and Fernando, what a great young core. Wiseman doesn't look amazing but he's still a good solid big and Gant looks so interesting too with how competent across the board he is.

Waters looks perfect for Indiana and I like Green in Utah as looks ideal for 3&D. The guy we passed on in Langford looks pretty nice too but I'm still worried about his efficiency. Strategy/instructions might be able to fix that though.

Compare Langford to Elfrid and you'll see exactly why I'm not worried.

Compare Isaiah Cousins to Collin Sexton and you'll see exactly why that means nothing.
