The Brew Hoop community has selected Kawhi Leonard with the eighth pick on the draft board. If I may say so, Leonard was my first obsession in this draft. His combination of athleticism, length, and tenacity had him shooting up draft boards early in the process. Since then, his stock has cooled a bit, but he's still a consensus top-10 pick. Leonard offers Luc Mbah a Moute defensive potential thanks to his size and strength. He's a very good rebounder, especially for his position, ranking 13th in the nation in DRB% according to Ken Pomeroy. He still needs to develop a jump shot, or any real go-to offensive skill, and might never have dependable NBA three-point range, but the occasional Gerald Wallace comparison is enough to have many teams intrigued. Picks so far:
1. Derrick Williams - F, Arizona
2. Kyrie Irving - PG, Duke
3. Enes Kanter - C, Kentucky
4. Brandon Knight - G, Kentucky
5. Kemba Walker - PG, UConn
6. Alec Burks - SG, Colorado
7. Bismack Biyombo - PF/C, International
8. Kawhi Leonard - SF, San Diego St.
Pick the player YOU would like the Bucks to select, assuming they were drafting at each position - this ain't no mock draft. Essentially what we're looking for is a ranking of each prospective draftee. That means you should take into account need, potential, or (trade) value, and consider which other players are still available. We're not experts, but it should be a fun and interesting way of gauging the community's general opinions on this draft class.
Feel free to defend/brag about your selection in the comments, and let us know of any non-obvious choices you think should be included in the next poll. Also, if you select the option, "My preferred choice isn't listed," please leave your pick in the comments, but please be clear about it (eg. "My choice for pick #X on the board is ______"). That will make it easier for us to tally the results if there isn't an obvious top choice in the poll.
Poll closes after game seve---OH WAIT THERE IS NO GAME SEVEN.
