That's why I'm hoping it's Hinkie, it's against everything I believe I know about the man dork.

I pretty much agree across the board with those scouts' assessments.

Couldn't the whole article, and all participants be attempting a high profile smoke screen? If you are looking to acquire Wiggins, and want to precipitate a slide, wouldn't this be one way of aiding that?

Everyone is going crazy about how good Embiid is looking in a workout today. Praying one of Embiid or Wiggins refuses to give medical info/work out for the Cavs and Bucks.

Simmons mailbag....now I want Embiid most.

Q: Wait … what? You watched Joel Embiid work out last week?

A: Yes — at a secret location in Santa Monica. He wasn’t playing against anyone, just going through a two-hour workout with Will Perdue. Here’s what I can tell you: He moves around as effortlessly as a 7-foot Serge Ibaka; he’s such an athletic freak that he’s one of those “still going up as he’s finishing the dunk” guys; his freakish wingspan might make Jay Bilas pass out; he has been playing basketball for only four years (which seems impossible); he gave up a world-class volleyball career; he has 3-point range; he can shoot jump-hooks with both hands already; he couldn’t have seemed more coachable/agreeable/likable; he’s a hard worker with a goofy sense of humor; his voice is just a touch Mutombo-y (deep with a heavy African accent); and his friends call him “Jo-Jo.” And again — his back seemed totally fine.

News flash: As I said on TV before the lottery, Embiid was always going first. None of these teams was passing on him. Repeat: none of them. The amount of smokescreening going on in April and May was high comedy. We keep hearing his back is really screwed up, this could be another Oden situation … Just stop it. This was like sitting at a fantasy football auction next to someone who kept claiming that he wasn’t going to pay big money for a QB … and then, two hours later, he’s bidding $49 for Aaron Rodgers. The truth is, Wiggins and Parker never separated themselves enough this season to warrant anyone saying, “We’re passing on a potential franchise center with a good chance of becoming the 7-foot Serge Ibaka.”

I spoke with three of the best talent evaluators currently working in front offices about the four most heralded prospects. One is an NBA general manager, another an assistant GM, and the third source is the director of scouting for an NBA franchise.


It would be great if all three guys came from the same team.

I keep thinking of the 1984 draft-Hakeem at one, Bowie at two, MJ at three and several great players after that. Parker to Cleveland, Embiid to the Bucks, Wiggins goes at three. To me the problem with assessing these guys is that they are so young. Who knows where they'll be in four years?
