No, he's not on the draft boards. Only deng adel.

Acuil and landale likely will try out in the combine.

I would still expect to see Landale and Lual-Acuil Jr drafted, but most likely second round.

Adel is shaping as the only Aussie to go first round.

Interesting. None of the 3 above mentioned are on this draft board:

Adel has been moved to 2019.

The others are not on the board.
Acuil was listed at 55 or something last month but has been pushed out.

Pity that players like psycho t hansbrough and frank the tank kaminsky have had so little impact on the nba because that has affected players like landales standing being similar players.

He can have a solid pro career, even if the NBA isn't ready for him, he will still have an awesome opportunity at the Euro level or NBL level if he wants. Great kid, who would walk into one of our NBL teams similar to Humphreys I would expect. NBA draft is as much about hype and timing as it is about skill and performance!

Nothing I have seen in college or this season in the NBL suggests that Humphries is anywhere near as developed as Landale. Landale could be more of a Matt Knight level sort of player starting out professionally.

Why is Humphries talked up so much then? I don't believe he's 7ft either, no taller than Josh Boone.
