Cole and McDaniels are definitely in the Jaylen/Romeo mould of blue-chippers who disappointed in less-than-ideal environments with poor spacing. Cole is reported to be prickly, but a guy who lives and breathes basketball. McDaniels is reported to have character concerns and a questionable love of the game, so of the two, I think Danny would rather roll the dice on Cole.Who is the Aingiest pick out there? I would think that Cole Anthony might tick a lot of boxes as a highly touted recruit who many thought would be a lottery pick but is sliding due to some fit issues in college.
The aforementioned Terry, and Tyrese Maxey for combination of shooting, scoring and baller mindset. Not a great draft for scoring alphas though.
Desmond Bane's in the Grant mould of BBIQ + combat muscles - positional length.
Okoro and Josh Green have the strength + athleticism with a questionable jump shot that Jaylen had, though Jaylen's on another level in terms of explosion and body control.
Precious, Paul Reed and Paul Eboua for switchable big projects, which seems like a position of need.
Tillman because he's awesome and will be a useful NBA big.
Robert Woodard's another guy I wouldn't be surprised to learn Ainge was interested in at 30. Strong and long, but not particularly exciting.
