    Kessler is literally taller than Williams.

    Look at their height w/o shoes.

    Nuggets trade Will Barton / Michael Porter Jr. for Malcom Brogdon.

    Is this a prediction, rumor or did someone just report it happening?

    Got the wrong Kessler but I have seen him play and slow and not as quick off his feet as Williams. Still like Williams better

    Kessler’s reads and timing are vastly superior.

    There’s a reason why his blk% nearly doubles Mark’s.

    Kessler is the better prospect.

    DBPM:

    Kessler — 8.0
    Williams — 4.8

    prediction. With Josh Kroenke totally in charge now, i think he'd love to get out of the MPJ deal. Barton is an expiring, and the Pacers want to rebuild and drop cap. But the upside of MPJ might be alluring to them.

    better college player doesn't necessarily = better prospect. Williams is a much better athlete and projects better in the NBA than Kessler

    Williams would be a nice backup to Nurk.

    Neither of them do much for me. If we're missing out on Duren, I'd rather get the cheapest of those 2 & Koloko...

    yeah im not a huge fan of either one. Id take Williams in the second half of the first though, while I wouldnt take Kessler in the first at all.

    yeah but I think there are centers with similar profiles that can be had in the second.

    When i look at Mark Williams i see Ben Wallace. Great body, quick leaper. Kessler, i see Jakob Poetl. It's all about defense with these two. Whatever they give on offense, great.

    Taxes are based on the last day of the regular season.
    Any trades right now don't matter for the '21-'22 season.

    I smell some kind of trade with hornets who have the 13th and 15th pick.

    One does not "land" Gordon Hayward.

    One is saddled with Gordon Hayward.

    Interesting there are alot of sons of former stars in this draft that aren't good enough to likely get drafted. Shareef O'Neal, Scotty Pippen Jr, Ron Harper Jr.
