Chris Spatola Gives His Takes on the Biggest Names in the NBA Draft


The former PG at Army and assistant coach at Duke turned College Basketball Analyst for ESPN and Sirius XM joined Kyle Bailey today on the Clubhouse to discuss some of the top prospects in this year's NBA Draft class.

The first prospect that Chris weighed in on was James Wiseman as Chris likes him as a prospect, but he has a long way to go offensively, however his physical traits and defensive skills are there.

Chris then weighed in on Anthony Edwards from Georgia saying and Chris said his problem with him is he went long stretches disappear from the floor, and with him being the top prospect it shows that the floor for the top prospects are already lower than the ones from the past few years.

Kyle wanted Chris to elaborate his thoughts on PG LaMelo Ball as he comes as the most polarizing prospect in this class and Chris told Kyle:

"I'm not a fan. First of all, the league he played in was not a great league and he was not on a good team. There were a lot of things that he was able to do that he will not be afforded the opportunity to do at the next level. He is very creative and can handle the ball very well for his size, but his shot selection is wild, his decision making is high-risk high reward so if I'm picking in the top 3 of the draft I'm not taking him."
