From a skill standpoint, he is mos def lotto talent. His lack of size may keep him out of the lotto, but with that said, I agree, I love watching this kid play. His vision is second to none. Love the way he darts into the lane, draws the defender and drops off the dime. He can turn the corner on anyone and he's strong going right or left....

He's shooting 75% at the free throw line but when 1 for 16 from deep so far. I 'd expect him to improve from long range this season and it will be enough for a team to take a shot on him in the late lottery. He's got a way of controlling the game that is very rare and is doing so without a real shot. Reminds me of chris paul and maybe a little iverson light. I 'm a buyer.

His form breakdown on the long ball. Notice he's always leaning back. Probably a bad habit he developed because if his size. He'll probably need to revamp his form. Chris Paul was money from the mid-range and improved from three later on. Maybe Cooper can do the same? I'm more skeptical about his ability to finish at the next level.

I'm a big time Jalen Johnson fan...Think he has a chance to be a really good player in this league. Not only is he a good all around player, but his strength and size is what separates him from most. And he will get stronger in the league....

I'm down on Brandon, but I don't want to write him off because of how Can Reddish bounced back. The talent is there for Boston, but the overall physicality isn't there.

I'd have Sandro in the lower lottery if his shooting was more consistent.

Was just about to post this. He looks very talented but apparently his defensive isn’t great and shooting needs to be more consistent. He moves very smoothly for a big man.

I think they removed age restrictions so he's competing vs. a lot of fringe NBA guys which is good

It sounds like scouts are as perplexed regarding Cooper's stock as I am. He is must see tv, but I'm not sure how his finishing translates next level. Giddey in Australia is also intriguing, but I question his frame and ability to gain weight.
