    I never wanted a Boban, and still think Edey is better than Boban ever was. So yes, I still wouldn't mind an Edey with our 2nd rounder though, ya.

    And that's "Commissioner" to you, Kage. Get it right.
    I agree with you. He is better than Boban. BUT in today's NBA you just have some concerns. I think there are other 7 footers in this draft that I would take before taking him.

      If he can't play defense and can't keep up in transition he won't be playable, just like Boban. A lot of his offense is predicated on getting calls also, which works great for him in college but won't work at all in the NBA. I think despite being better than Boban it won't matter because the same huge deficiencies will be there. The only way I see Edey being playable for long stretches is if they build a team around him.

        Concerns make sense. But for a 2nd round Pick? I think that is fairly now risk, high reward.

        And like I said, sure, lots of 7-footers in the draft ... that are likely to be as good as Edey in the 2nd Round? Less sure.

        • I have a feeling you can have Edey with Summer League invite

            There are 2 main aspects to C defence. PnR and rim protection. Yes Edey will have to play drop coverage (like JV and a number of other C's not named Boban). And yes that will leave him vulnerable to guards with midrange games especially on a team without a stopper. But no one says he won't be able to defend the rim.

            He would be a terrible fit on a team like Indy which relies on transition, true. But he would fit much better on a slower pace half court team especially being a lob threat. The disappearance of fouls is total BS. Hell, if the Lakers draft him he'll be shooting 10 a game.
            If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

              Lakers are probably the best team for him to end up on. If the league benefits from him doing well I like his chances a lot better.

                lol. There’s zero chance Edey goes undrafted.

                  We'll see Commish.
                  I wouldn't bet on Edey even if I were Jontay.

                  • I kind of want to see Purdue vs UConn. I want to see how Edey would fare against a top prospect like Clingan.

                      Yeah won't see that against Tennessee. He will be playing against forwards again.

                        I'm with you on Purdue/UConn, just the other way around. I want to see what Clingan can do against Edey.

                        Also brings to mind the Poeltl/Sabonis matchup in 2016.

                        • Both Knecht and Edey doing their thing. Don't think Knecht will still be there with the Indy pick, but if he is be more than happy if the Raptors grab him. Might get passed over because of his age - he's 3 months older than Scottie.

                              bingo which is not really worth it because his 90th percentile outcome is extremely tough and may still not be worth it ...

                              • Purdue doesn't use Edey much as a screen setter, but he's crushed a few guys when he has screened.
