Never said he was a scrub.
I just don't think he's on the same level as some of the other PG's in the draft... He struggles against length, in fact he's a sub 40% shooter (mid 30%'s and lower) against the majority of good teams he faced this season. And it'll only get more difficult for him in the association.
Aside from Isaiah Thomas how many 6' an under PG's play meaningful minutes, let alone start?
In shoes, huh? You know of any sneakers that don't add at least an inch of height?
But back on topic... Aside from Lowry all the guys you mentioned were lottery picks. And even Lowry was selected in the first round. Had he been taller he probably would've been a lottery pick... Because he's always been considered strong for his size, and like Evans he was a good floor general whilst at Villanova. The difference is Lowry was able to carry his teams deep into the tournament securing the #1 seed during his sophomore season, and made it all the way to the Final Four before losing.
The same can be said for Conley who eventually lost in the championship game against Florida.
Kemba went on to win the championship and was the tournament's MVP.
And CP3, who played with the least amount of talent, not only got his teams into the tournament (4th seed as a freshman, 2nd seed as a sophomore) but also managed to win a few games once there...
Now I know it's a team game but all of these dudes were impact players at the college level who made their teams better. Evans, on the other hand, was winless in his lone appearance in the tournament despite putting up impressive empty statistics (high PER). But it probably doesn't mean anything.

Some scouts think if Monk were 6’5” instead of 6’3” he’d be the top pick.

Both should be available if New York lands 6th or 7th pick in draft. I'm cool with either/or, both are intriguing prospects. If this article is true, then Phil Jackson values Monk over De'Aaron Fox.
lxn_ wrote:Saw an interesting discussion on realgmforums, if Luka Doncic was somehow eligible and enter this 2017 draft where do you think he will go? Would you draft him above players like Ntilikina,Fox or Monk? I've seen a lot of highlights and a single complete game of his and hes a very good facilitator. This guy can pass and shoot at an elite level. Hes 6'8-6'9 220 average defender, the only concern for me is his lateral quickness. He might get blown by a lot on the nba, but he has elite BBIQ in my opinion. The 2018 draft isnt stacked like this upcoming one, which bums me out because hes likely to go 2-3 in that weak draft and within our range in this deep draft.
