    The crop next year is top-heavy and weaker overall than 2017.

    This is one reason why I'm looking to package this pick asap for a vet/SF upgrade.

    For the draft nerds - keep an eye on this mid-major darkhorse:



    Small-ball center with ridiculous defensive upside.

    Isaac Bonga reminds me somewhat of Giannis Antekounmpo based off his DX rightup. Could be available at our pick.

    Really think we should look to add talent this off-season by trading next years pick though. This draft isn't deep at all.

    Altman's college coach is the head of scouting for the Warriors. There is a reason they have drafted Bell and signed Boucher and Cook. The Warriors have a pipeline to Eugene. Sucks don't it!

    Altman is big on loyalty. He even kept in regular touch with Artis and Dotson even after they were kicked off the team. And put Mitch Richmond's kid on the team as a walk on as a favor. It is something that has gotten all the way from Wilbur, Nebraska to UO. He may have terrible judgement in character sometimes but his players would run through a wall for him.

    I'm pretty happy about that, but hate seeing them end up in Seattle, so take that!

    Miles Bridges is the only prospect I really like outside the top-5.

    So the plan is to tank and keep building from the draft then?

    Simi Shittu.... remember that name. And it IS a great name. He's probably going to declare for next year's class and he is going to be a top five pick. Amazing talent.

    De'Anthony Melton is my early target.
