Elite Kids Calvin de Haan Jersey The Sixers appear to have already found their franchise cornerstones, so filling out the pieces around them is now the priority. Michigan State’s Bridges would give Philadelphia a (theoretically) versatile defender with the ability to create offense off the catch from the 3-point line. The 19-year-old is one of the draft’s best athletes with plenty of potential to turn into one of the best role players in the 2018 class.
As expected, the Hornets stood pat on Kemba Walker at the trade deadline. Now, they’ll look to inject their forward rotation with some youth and upside.
Kentucky’s Knox doesn’t have the statistical profile of the wings ahead of him, but his positional size is a positive in a draft sorely lacking at the position. Knox flashed his potential in a 34-point performance against West Virginia last month. He needs to show he can consistently knock down shots in order J.J. Jansen Youth jersey to move up NBA teams’ boards.
Offensively, Williams represents an enticing lob target out of ball screens. His opportunities have been limited with the Aggies, though, as he plays next to Tyler Davis, one of the top post-up bigs in the country.
If projections hold, the Clippers will have two lottery picks to replenish their roster with youth and athleticism following the Griffin deal. Here, Brown would give Los Angeles positional size, versatility and playmaking on the wing. The 6-7 freshman is one of just two first-year players averaging better than 12.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game this season.
That’s not to say Adams is a poor defensive rebounder. Westbrook leads the Thunder in defensive rebounds per game, but only 13.9 percent of those have been contested because Adams usually does the dirty work by boxing out the biggest offensive rebounding threat on the opposing team to give Westbrook an opportunity to grab and go. While there is a stat-padding element to those possessions, cutting out the middleman helps Westbrook, who leads the league with 6.2 transition possessions per game, put pressure on teams following missed shots.

Adams could be more aggressive on the defensive glass 锟斤拷 he averages 7.6 defensive rebounding chances per game 锟斤拷 but he seems perfectly content leaving that to Westbrook while he focuses on grabbing offensive rebounds at a historic rate instead. It makes him an invaluable part of the Thunder as a whole, and a key to the individual success of Westbrook, George and Anthony.
Yup, just like last season, when it also was deathly quiet on the Cousins trade front after the Kings told Cousins they were intent on keeping him and re-signing him to a maximum contract north of $200 million.
