After agonizing over this, I'm going to have to go with Sengun. I accept that Mitchell might be a better win-now choice, but I just can't shake the notion that Sengun has more untapped long-term potential.

Tank-a-thon has Sengun #5 on their big board ahead of Kuminga and Barnes. (Those three make up their “Tier 2”) http://www.tankathon.com/big_board

CP3 aside, I thought I'd enjoy watching the Suns play. CP3 has certainly left his mark on these guys after one year. Between the endless complaining, CP3 shenanigans, and Crowder acting jobs, I find the Suns easy to root against. Booker is a stud, but has also bought into the constant whining. You can say he's a star now, since mugging a guy at the hoop with five fouls forces the refs to swallow their whistles.

I loved the CP3 meltdown tonite - I want Bucks in 6 and any talk about CP3 as FMVP to dissipate. I think he definitely brought his stock down quite a bit tonight: -10, poor shooting, and horrible turnovers. If somehow the Suns were able to pull out the series, I'd imagine it'll be Booker getting the FMVP and not CP3.

How nice would it be for Cam Johnson to wear a Dubs' jersey? Dude's a baller.

The league office might’ve been a tad premature engraving Chris Paul’s name on the FMVP before the series started.

That was the best block I've ever seen. My God Giannis.

Way to go, Bucks. We got a potentially classic Finals now.

CP3 choke job in Game 4 makes it even sweeter. :-)

Sengun I suppose, kinda meh on each of these two.

PJ Tucker fouling jumpshooters reminds me of Shaun Livingston in his last season, unfortunately. I think when you get older it might become harder to make controlled closeouts.

Man, Giannis launching 3’s early in the shot clock it such knuckleheadedness. Is Budenhholzer afraid to inform him of this, or is he just “Screw it, I’m feeling good…woohoo!”

Skilled bigs with post footwork are so hard to come by that I can’t really come up with an argument for picking an undersized guard instead…

Sengun without a question for me.

The Ringer walked through a mock with KOC, Tjarks and J Kyle Mann taking turns picking for each team with no trades. (Spoiler: 7 Mitchell, 14 Ziare). Great discussion of all the teams and players. All three really seem to like Ziare.

I vote Sengun, as well. The work that it must have taken to develop his low post moves by his age speaks well of his work ethic, and I think that he could work with Wiseman, too. I'd rather be wrong about Mitchell if he goes to another team than be right about him on the Warriors.

Worth noting if it wasn’t somewhere already: If top 6 guys go as expected, all of these guys will be available at 7 and at least one will be available at 14.

(I’m guessing Apricot planned it that way and I was just slow to catch on.)

This is clearly Sengun for me.
