San Antonio Spurs Draft: Experts answer 5 tough questions
San Antonio Spurs NBA Draft Poll - Question 2
Assume the Spurs stay at 12th. Which of these prospects previously mocked by media outlets are you taking?
A. Alperen Sengun (Tankathon) - 3 votes
B. Moses Moody (Tankathon)
C. Josh Giddey (Bleacher Report) - 2 votes
D. Isaiah Jackson (ESPN)
E. Keon Johnson (CBSSports) - 1 vote
F. Corey Kispert (Yahoo! Sports) - 1 vote
For transparency, I originally ran this poll on June 15th. Back then, three of the respondents said Moses Moody. I since re-visited the questions with the panel and he got no votes. This just goes to show you how ever-changing stocks are when it comes to this year's prospects.
At the time I posed this question, Alperen Sengun wasn't in the top 12 in many mock drafts. Since then, John Hollinger has recently dubbed him (subscription required) the fourth-best player in the class.
A few months ago, the Turkish star caught my eye enough to write a full assessment of his game and his fit in San Antonio. While there are reasons to hesitate like his defensive fundamentals and rawness, I ultimately think his youth and talent are too much to ignore.
Count me in on Sengun, but by now, the Spurs might have to trade up to get him.
