    2021 NBA Draft scouting reports: Strengths, weaknesses and player comparisons for projected lottery picks.

    1. Cade Cunningham | 6-8, 220 | PG | Fr. | Oklahoma St.

    Strengths

    Great passing vision and guts to execute off what he sees
    Reads, thinks the game at a high level
    Excellent positional size
    Good creation ability on offense with the ball in his hands, and can create space to get shots for himself and others
    Devastatingly effective in isolation scenarios
    Effective shooter and scorer
    Multi-positional defender
    Uses size to his advantage on both sides of the court

    Weaknesses

    Turnover-prone -- averaged more turnovers than assists at Oklahoma State
    Came up big in clutch situations, but had notable late-game blunders in big moments either lacking awareness or forcing bad passes
    Doesn't have elite first step or explosiveness to blow by defenders

    2. Jalen Suggs | 6-4, 205 | SG | Fr. | Gonzaga

    Strengths

    Competitive, fiery guard whose motor always runs hot
    Slasher who can get to the rim at will and finishes with both hands
    Very good passer
    Active rebounder who loves to crash the boards and run the break
    Good shooter and creator who projects as franchise-caliber point guard

    Weaknesses

    Good shooter but 3-point shooting tailed off, hitting 33.7% from distance on 104 attempts
    Playmaker on defense but sometimes takes ill-advised chances in effort to make homerun play

    3. Evan Mobley | 7-0, 215 | C | Fr. | USC

    Strengths

    Uniquely talented big man with 7-foot frame and 7-4 wingspan
    Fluid athlete who can drop his hips and defend multiple positions from post to perimeter
    Elite defensive weapon who can block shots and anchor a defense
    Talented scorer who can score in variety of ways

    Weaknesses

    Developing shooter: made 30% of 3-pointers at USC and was 69.4% free-throw shooter
    Skinny, high center of gravity and still needs to add muscle to huge frame
    4. Jalen Green | 6-5, 172 | SG | G League Ignite

    Strengths

    Can create and score as well as any prospect in this draft
    Explosive, bouncy athlete who can finish above the rim
    Modern-day NBA 2-guard because of his size, athleticism and scoring upside

    Weaknesses

    Improving passer, but room to develop outside of generating his own offense
    Can sometimes settle for deep looks as opposed to driving into traffic to finish around the rim

    5. Jonathan Kuminga | 6-8, 205 | SF | G League Ignite

    Strengths

    Great positional size, custom-fit as archetype of a modern-day wing
    Oozing with potential as jumbo playmaker with craft and confidence to make plays off the dribble
    Good finisher around the rim
    Projectable, positionless defensive player who uses his size

    Weaknesses

    Made 16 of his 65 3-point attempts (24.6%) in the G League
    Raw and largely unpolished on both ends
    Needs to improve as a shooter on offense and with his awareness on defense in team constructs

    What are the odds that we get the #1 pick and Houston falls to #5?

    Like 5%?

    I'm too lazy to find the info right now, but I saw someone who did the math and I think it was somewhere between a 5-10% chance. Once games are finished tomorrow I'll see if I can post our set odds for the draft lottery.

    We currently have a 13.3% at the no. one pick and a 47.9% at Houston's no. 5 pick.

    To me, they seem like dependent events since the occurrence of the #1 pick going to OKC would increase the probability of Houston falling to the #5.

    If the events were independent, you could just multiply the probabilities.

    Correct: Game time is 8 p.m. tonight...

    Noticed that time change which was once labeled TBD. Usually check my Cox Contour TV programming guide along with the game day LockerVision jerseys which still indicates 12 ET before posting (uniforms & times) on this forum. ESPN & some printed outlets had TBD for the final two Thunder games. They post the changes as soon as they get them.

    Hope next season we get a printed schedule that is more consistent with predetermined times & dates; especially since we will have limited fan support in our (yet-to-be-named) arena.

    Literally win 2 games in the last 3 months only to take a dump on your own odds for the final game? Not sure what that was about.

    Have the Thunder announced attendance policy for the 21-22 season?

    All I can think of is we have so many future first round pics it wouldn't be hard to trade up for multiple players.

    The Clippers wanted to lose so they wouldn't be on the same side of the brackets as the Lakers (assuming they beat GSW in the 7/8 game). They out-tanked us last night.

    i have heard that they are currently thinking 65%.

    Gives them a built in excuse when there is little demand for tickets.

    Yep--always has to be a conspiracy at work.

    Presti should have signed a couple of us to 10-day contracts.

    Certainly don't understand why they would be selling tickets not knowing what the capacity will be unless as BoulderSooner said 'Current plan is 100%

    They sell full season tickets packages &10+ game ticket memberships: http://okcthunder.com/interest/?camp...RoC_FMQAvD_BwE

    Haven't inquired about tickets, still trying to digest the abbreviated & condensed 2021 season.
