Gilgeous-Alexander is not an explosive athlete by any means, however, he does check many boxes and does not have many weaknesses. SGA is a very cerebral player, and has the...

His athleticism and explosiveness are what makes him the player that he is. Smith has all-world upside, and to get him with the 11th overall pick would be a great value. Zhaire Smith has been a riser over the past couple of months on many draft boards. A lot of Hornets fans haven’t really even heard of him. However, due to this rise, Smith is now considered a lottery prospect by many major sports outlets....
