    Good luck to Shawn tonight. He had a very good senior season and hopefully it pays off for him

    Another factor is that he may have shed some weight to play as a stretch 4 versus having to play the 5 in college

    If he's not going to be a first rounder with the associated guaranteed contract, I hope he doesn't get drafter at all. That would allow him to best select a team with a need for his skill set. JMO

    Doubtful. NBA has discounted big men. They want big guards, not guys who play with their backs to the goal. Doesn't mean he won't get a real chance.

    From what I'm hearing this draft is about two players. Most other teams trying to trade down or out of the draft.

    Depending on who drafts (or picks him up), he may be more a stretch 4

    * Three teams are interested in drafting Shawn. Unfortunately for them someone is spreading the rumor that they can all get him as an UDFA.



    * just in case you are a scout.

    Okay, I don't want Long drafted or not drafted base on RP evaluations. 🤓🤓🤓

    If he does, it'll be in the last 4 or 5 picks. He's right on that fringe. I sure hope he does, just for the honor. That said, if it's going to be that late, part of me also kind of hopes he doesn't so he can pick the best situation for him to get a good shot in the league.

    Thats the thing. Long has always been a stretch 4 guy, not a back to the basket 5. He was the biggest man we had so he played that position. And played it very well but you could see he really wanted to face the basket when he got the ball. The issue for the NBA may be his slow feet on the defensive side of things.
    Brock is right, it would be better for him to NOT get drafted than get picked in the last 5 or so.

    I'm not questioning his skills. We just see the NBA likes faster guys. It's been trending there because of the value of 3 point shooting. Same for colleges, except a big can still dominate the college game with support. Suppprt Sean didn't have.

    Well, he didn't get drafted. Here's to hoping he signs with a team that can use his set of skills/ talent

    Congrats to Shawn! He's a beast!

    I just don't understand that move.

    Wasn't the #1 overall pick for that team a forward. Also 3 of their last 5 Top 10 picks have been centers. How will he get on the court?

    they had the #1 pick so id say he has a decent shot of making the roster... Going to the worst team in basketball gives him as good a shot as any other team. Those picks didn't turn out great... Even though they were tanking on purpose.
