I think Arthur is one of the most underrated prospects in this draft and I can't believe his not in lottery in all mock drafts. I think he should definitely be a top 10 pick.

I donno. I see him as a mix between Marvin Williams and Hilton Armstrong.

In what way????? I think Arthur is pretty much a prototype modern NBA power forward. He has tremendous skills for a PF, a great jumper (even though the range could be better), he has great hands, a good touch, quick feet and great footwork, he jumps quickly and high, he's got great basketball IQ and is a team-first guy, he is a solid defender and can dominate in the offense too and creates scoring opportunities for himself.

Marvin Williams doesn't have post moves and isn't a good defender. His a good player and still has more upside than Arthur, but I don't think they are similar at all. Hilton Armstrong doesn't have any offensive game at all.

arthur will certainly fill the void in the 4 spot for philly.. he can be starter at once because mo cheeks is one of the best coaches in using young guys. however if the mocks are true that he may end up in charlotte i dont see any pieces that philly can put up with to get him. however speights isnt bad at 4. imo if the sixers will build its core with AI which is already a given. they are in good contention to be one of the best teams in a couple of years from now in the east. It showed in the playoffs. I wont be surprise if they end up next year with a higher seed.

He reminds me of Marvin offensively. Lanky needs weight, but pretty athletic given his height.

And I see Hilton Armstrong in aspects of shot blocking style, jumping after every shot, and committing a lot of fouls.

Just two names that came to mind.

Arthur is going to make someone happy in the late lottery, but I don't see star potential. Maybe because he played for such a balanced Kansas team, but I just don't see a future star. I see like maybe 15 and 8. Solid starter, does a lot of things well, but not the level of Amare or guys like that. Philly would be a nice fit.
