Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid talks with general manager and president Sam Hinkie
19 May, 2017, 23:38
He is a big center, measuring in at just under 6'11 with a 7'5 wingspan and weighing in at 249 pounds at the NBA Draft Combine. Teams, fans, and sports analysts finally learned which spot each team in the lottery will make their National Basketball Association draft picks in.
Colangelo is convinced that these second-rounders, combined with the Sixers' first-round pick, will help the organization's cause, in some way, shape, or form. Like drafting Simmons past year, the pick should be a no-brainer for Colangelo.
Thomas, who has turned cynicism about his 5-foot-9 height and being the 60th pick in the 2011 draft into a motivational fire, landed another blow against the doubters yesterday when he was named to the league's All-NBA second team. The report notes that Jackson would provide a better defender and that either player would be a smart choice in this spot.
The Celtics were able to play them relatively even the rest of the half, which doesn't do much good when facing a deficit on the north side of 20 points. Despite not having the most aesthetically pleasing shooting form, Jackson showed steady improvement throughout his lone year at Kansas to suggest he can be a legitimate scoring threat from the wing at the next level. Pairing his improving shot along with his already strong slashing game, Jackson could turn into a viable option for Simmons to pass to in a halfcourt offensive set, helping ease pressure off Embiid in the paint. Phil Jackson has seemed resistant though, still pushing the triangle offense. If Carmelo Anthony is unloaded there is a gaping hole at small forward. Size of that nature in today's game would be an incredible mismatch at both ends of the court.
In Brown's world, solid defense like that leads to points in transition and when you have young players that like to play the transition game, adding a young player like Jackson who likes to play defense could make the 76ers more fun to watch.
His per-40 minute averages of 19 points and 13.9 rebounds are extremely impressive. "We think we are going to add a great player ... or we are going to have some discussions with other teams in certain situations that we might entertain".

Well, give the Celtics this much: They waited a full half before they allowed the Wizards to crush them. "They set the tone". We'll make the adjustments as a team, I'll watch film, I'll make the adjustments myself and see where I can pick them apart.
One of those prospects is Duke forward Jayson Tatum. It is also a critically important Draft and the Magic have to make sure they get this selection right. Tatum could very well be that guy. But beyond their own point guard, the Celtics could be impacted by what happened around the league.
The team could use some additional talent at the two/three and Jackson would give the Sixers another freak athlete who can defend multiple positions. Malik Monk is an undersized shooting guard - or a point guard with the ability to score in bunches. Boston acquired the Nets' 2014, 2016 and 2018 first-round picks, as well as the rights to swap in 2017. I have so much room for improvement in so many areas. If the Sixers decide they want to draft a guard come June, their best bet at landing a potential star is with Fox. Many thought one of Garnett or Pierce was available, but the Celtics made a decision to move both.
