Listening to Chad Ford on Mike and Mike this morning he said there are 3 "Can't Miss" draft picks. Not can't miss superstars but can't miss NBA caliber players. Kwahi Leonard, Klay Thompson and Chris Singleton will all contribute to an NBA team right away. In a weak draft these are the safest picks in the draft. They may not have the incredible hit or miss upside, but these 3 players are NBA ready RIGHT NOW.
Klay Thompson is flying up the draft boards. He went from 15 to 10 in 24 hours. Singleton is also looking to crack the top 10. He said Singleton is probably the best defender in the entire draft. (When you play against a superstar 2 or 3 every night it helps to have a shut down defender).
I expect all 3 of these guys to be gone by #10. I am starting to believe that if the Wizards do not trade up that they will take Kwahi Leonard with the #6 pick . He steps in the 3 right away. I just hope he does not have Chris Dudley's shooting coach. Chris Singleton will be the other option at #6 but, man, I would love to see Klay Thompson stroking it from long range in a new Wiz uni.
I will take all 3.
