He should get a lot of burn with PHO.. it'll be interesting to see how he works with booker. I'd like to see PHO land a passing PG during free agency to help him get easier looks. Will also be watching how his defense looks... doesnt block as well as other bigs, considering how athletic he is.

I don't know how much a pass first PG is going to matter....Jackson doesn't space the floor. Warren doesn't space the floor. I worry about how congested it is going to be for Ayton when Booker is their only real 3 point threat. I am pretty sure defenses would live with Jackson and Warren bombing away from 3 if it meant making the paint more congested and difficult to operate/cut in. 

 

I get that Ayton is a freak athlete and has an NBA ready body. I just really worry about the ability of "old school" bigs to impact the game now a days. If this was a decade ago Ayton would be the no brainer #1 pick in a dynasty draft. But now I am thinking about trading down in my dynasty draft, adding an asset, and passing on Ayton.

Ayton hit 34% of his 3s at Arizona. Expect him to shoot around 30% as a rookie on low volume, but that number will creep upwards over the next few years. Ayton likely won't have to worry much about spacing. This is the NBA. He's not going to post up 8 times per game. He will be a part of the spacing.

 

And Warren is quite reliable from mid-range, and will turn 25 before next season. He's nowhere near Jackson levels of problematic for spacing, and it's still very possible that he develops a 3-point shot. His window is closing, though.

I like Bagley's shot potential much more than Ayton's. The thing that confuses me is that Ayton has already come out saying he wants to dominate the block...and that isn't something to be "proud" of these days. I forget who was reporting that, but I interpret that as Ayton wanting to post up 8 times per game. In order for Ayton to be a real threat for fantasy teams he needs to be a lot more roll than pop after he screens.

From what I've seen, he has a great motor. And the Suns play at a extremely high pace. Good combinations.

Bagley has a LONG way to go.

I think all of these 19 year olds have a long way to go. That is why I don't really draft rookies. The KAT, CP3 type rookie seasons are the outliers.

Yea, that stat line really popped out in the first half. 3 blocks. 0 fouls. Is it possible to watch these games on the NBA package or is there just the featured game on NBA TV for now?

KAT like rookie season incoming. With a few more games like this. He’ll be going in the third round.

It was against the Kings and preseason but hard not to get excited. He did this without an NBA caliber starting PG, and any other scoring threat playing with him. It was reported that Ayton has been working on conditioning and defense since summer league ended and it showed tonight. He blocked a 3 point attempt by Fox when he got switched to him on a pick and roll. Aside from the 3 blocks, he altered many shots at the rim too. He is naturally gifted on offense, he has excellent hands and has great touch.

 

I'd say temper your excitement, but I think people who put him in their watch list will start to reach for him. Scary thing is, Ayton can average a double double by just relying on his physical tools. He is not good at boxing out, but that can be taught and learned. He is eager to prove that he can play defense. Very impressed with this kid.

With that kind of showing, hell surely moved up in the drafts and someone would likely reached for him. I thought i can still get him at the 5th with a late pick(10-12).

I'm slacking. I should definitely queue him up when my draft starts next week.

 

Now it's Round 3 talk? Jesus.

Damn, 28 is way too aggressive. that being said, relative to all the other bigs who went after him, I think I would take Ayton over all of the ones you have listed below him. funny enough the guy I think will be better than Ayton is not on that list - Mr. 20/20 Hassan Whiteside.
