Per Jeff Goodman at ESPN on twitter.

May not be thread worthy but there has been a lot of PJ talk around here so figured I would post it.

This is good news. 

 

Only SGs I want in this draft are PJ and Stauskas.

If we keep the 9 pick I think he would be the safest bet on who will pan out in the league. I think he's learned his lesson and we have the group of guys that can keep him from falling into questionable activities. Coach Clifford has said before that we have the type of locker room where he would feel comfortable bringing in someone with a questionable character. The only real question is PJ Worth the risk?

PJ's stock is rising and I'm starting to see multiple mocks now where PJ goes at #9. Even if a team snatches him up in the late teens I could see us making a trade for him, we want him bad. And TBH, if the team believes he is their guy I don't care where we draft him. if PJ never got in trouble and was able to play another year at UNC he probably would be been a top 7 talent.

Would love to have PJ here.. He's the true scorer we need. 

 

Honestly don't care where we draft him I think the guy will ball out here

Not a lot of difference in the 9th best guy, and the 19th best guy in this draft IMO.

 

After the elite tier (Embiid, Parker, Wiggins, Exum, maybe Randle), and the second tier (Randle, Gordon, Vonleh), the third tier guys all mesh together and I'd include PJ in that one with guys like Stauskas, McDermott, Saric, etc.

 

If PJ is the guy at 9, so be it. May seem like a reach to some, but his potential and NBA-readiness compared to some other guys makes him a potentially great pick. Of course, if it all works out.

Agreed, you take your guy at 9. Big drop off after the first four/five guys in this draft.

I don't think we end up with PJ.

 

He's not good enough to warrant the 9th pick IMO, but good enough that he probably won't be there at 24. 

I hope I'm wrong.
