He looks more skilled and talented than Thon Maker.

If he has a 38 inch vertical now, then Vince Carter had an 80 inch vertical in his prime.

LOL you think this guy's the next Sabonis?

I've seen this guy play and he's slow, stiff and unathletic. GTFO with that #1 draft pick BS.

And in case he starts playing well, we all know Euroleague is gonna disown him and start bashing him, he is not a stable person.

Clip from his most recent game in the Greek League - 10 points, 12 rebounds, 2 steals, 3 blocks, in 22 minutes

Not gonna lie, he has a Sabonis vibe to him.

Could be a real force.

Look at Marc gasol at the same age, fat piece of shit. This kid looks good, once he leaves Greece adn getst some proper training, sky is the limit.

Late 2nd rounder, out of the league in 2 years.

Book it.

this is why the best scouts many times get it totally wrong.

scouting is nowhere near being an exact science.

so yeah, this kid could be number 1, if he makes a transformation like Marc did when he moved from Memphis to Spain, but how often does that happen anyway?

If Kanter was a top 5 pick, I don't see why this guy shouldn't be.

He will be in the 12-22 range stash pick. Then in three years will come into the league and be either mediocre or a rotation player. That's how it works, right?

This guys looks really good. I don't get why people are hating on him. I watched more videos on him and I can see he can definitely be a solid NBA player, or even better depending on how he adjusts to the NBA game.


He has long arms, and if he were to join the NBA, perhaps the longest in the league followed by Giannis. That is a HUGE factor, as it could tremendously make his post game unguardable if he can develop a good post game.

He can run the floor and is mobile. Most bigs cannot actually run the floor, and those that can are actually 4s that play the 5.

I might get bashed for this, but he reminds me of a raw Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

It all depends though how well he develops. He needs to come to the NBA and not start overseas. But I can tell he is more interested in the NBA anyways.

I know he is only 17, but he needs to get in NBA shape starting now if he plans to do anything in the NBA.

Kanter was of no threat to stay overseas. This guy is. That alone will drop his stock in a 2016 draft class that has some nice talent.
