There he is, future Hall of Famer Deni Avdija. I can't believe the Wizards did it, but they took the next Luka tonight. Need more analysis on that? Well you're in luck. He's very young, very tall, and he's from overseas. Wow. The fact he dropped to 9 is the biggest shock of the night and it's not even close. We'll look back on this pick like Giannis dropping to the Bucks at 15 and wonder how the Wizards got so lucky here. You guys know I watch a ton of Maccabi Tel Aviv tape and I'm just in awe of this guy.
And what's crazy to me is the very next pick Jalen Smith went 10th the Suns. I wouldn't have minded having the 2nd best player in the draft behind Deni, but I'm happy for Jared and his beloved Suns, they just got a great player in Stix.
All in all, a great night for us.
