Wizards f****d by drafting Avdija. Plenty of G-league studs that play better than that bum. What bust he is! I watched almost all season games and don’t recall him being decisive in any Wizards game. McRae was 10 times better than sloppy clown!! Dumb mfs!!
Every team has draft busts. No one gets it right every season. Relax!!!
Lots of players struggle their first season…If McRae is so good, why can’t he find a roster spot in the US? He has played in China the past 2 seasons.
Kuminga should just work out for DET, HOU & CLE… no need to get any lower than that for him!
He’s not being selected in the top 3 if that’s what you’re implying.
Then some teams & yourself will be disappointed, right?
I like Ayo and Springer. Springer is more raw with more upside. I can see Knicks taking Ayo in 1st rd. Played more like a combo guard. But has great vision. I think he can play PG. He’s long and plays D too. I’d be happy with Ayo
