Moving on…

Who should be Rookie of the Year favorite?

“Luka Doncic. He’s the best player right now in this draft” – Schmitz

“Deandre Ayton. Booker is going to keep feeding him. Those two are going to be amazing together” – Spears

“Kevin Knox. The kid can do it all” – Sedano

Impact player drafted outside the lottery?

“Lonnie Walker. He’s going to be able to play some minutes early. His game is much more suited for the NBA game than the college game” – Schmitz

“Troy Brown. He does everything. He’s a coach’s dream” – Spears

“De’Anthony Melton. He reminds me of a Pat Beverley type” – Sedano


Second Half

Who got the better deal: Rockets or Capela?

“Clint Capela. For him to get that money in a bad market, I’m never going to sneeze at that kind of money” – Spears

“The Rockets got the better end of the deal just in terms of when you look at some of his positional peers. He’s a huge part of what they do” – Schmitz

“Clint Capela” – Sedano

Do Rockets need to make another move?

“What they really need is another defensive-minded wing. Another combo 4 type” – Schmitz

“They are better offensively with Melo” – Spears

Think D-Wade will play for Heat next season?

“I do. I talked to somebody in his circle and they didn’t seem too high on him going to China. He’s got to finish playing for the Heat” – Spears

PG’s performance at USAB camp something or nothing?

“When they were going up and down (the court), he looked great. He looked like the old PG” – Spears

“He’s out to prove something” – Sedano
