2021 NBA Draft

#26      
That was a month ago & I have seen no two round mock drafts where they have been predicted to pick him.
Yes, I realize it was a month ago. I too can read that on the article. I posted because it is the only article I have seen from a specific NBA team evaluating Kofi and how he fits with that team.

I admittedly haven’t been following the updates on the NCAA and NIL apart from knowing nothing is officially changed yet.

I was curious if it is kind of unspoken at this point that the NCAA is not pursuing things such as selling game-worn jerseys.

In any event, I’m rooting for Kofi wherever he is playing next season.

I understand the NBA values measurables. The 3 & D guys that can defend multiple positions. Maybe it's a bit of a bias on my part, but IMO Wagner over Ayo will be a bad look in hindsight. Wagner has some tools in his game that the NBA is looking for, but he just doesn't do it for me. Disappears way too often for long stretches. He may slot into a roster (ahead of Ayo) looking for what he has to offer though.

I feel like Ayo will end up being a steady starting combo guard/6th man for a long time.

I like the way Giorgi looked at the Florida camp & wish him the best of luck hooking up with a higher tier European team. In reality, it usually takes a couple of years to work your way up. The next few weeks will be huge for Kofi in terms of the draft as to how he performs at the camps coming up, especially the one in Chicago. From his instagram posts he looks leaner & faster, so the weight he has dropped should help his performance.

Let's hope Shaq doesn't see this. That way Kofi won't sell anything and can still come back!

Anyone watching the Nets-Bucks playoff? Jrue Holiday really tells why he is Ayo's comp
