2023 NBA Draft

It's tomorrow and there’s been next to nothing on the forum apart from Wembanyama.

And I’ve forgotten all the banter about who’s in or out or not, so could someone start the ball rolling?

Any Aussies or Kiwis in there? Anyone else who’s passed through the NBL or NZNBL?

Marcus Smart to the Grizzlies
Porzingis and 1rnd picks to Celtics
Tyus Jones to Wizards

How did Celtics get the best player.... and the picks!

We got zinger but now have no heart. Also they now have to either trade Brogdon or try and repair that situation. Memphis will love Smart, this is a Tony Allen 2.0 situation.

Any dark horses who might surprise by being picked early? (I can't see Rupert or King in that category)

He doesn't say anymore, I think he wants to keep his international options open.

Not looking good for the Next Stars right now, with Rupert so low?

Crazy fall for Rupert, which was very unexpected.

I'd have wished spurs used their 33rd pick on him instead of trading for 2 future firsts.

Then they’d have had a French trio

Apparently Rupert's agent told teams not to pick him as they had a multi year deal with Portland all worked out hence why he didn’t look like RJ Hampton as he slipped down the board.
Good on him for prioritising fit over a number.

I personally think the kid will end up being the steal of the draft, massive upside and his numbers were affected by his wrist injury.
