What a weird interview. Like the complete opposite of coaches that I listen to. Then again, when the most frequent interviews you hear are Brett Brown, Pat Chambers and James Franklin, you're bound to run into personality.

Welcome aboard! I don't know much about his game but am looking forward to seeing him in 2016-17.

Simms is a U17 member of Team Loaded, one of the most prestigious AAU programs in the country. They have Dennis Smith Jr., arguably the #1 PG in the 2017 class.

Thank goodness. Hopefully it knocks Wisconsin down a peg or two.

Josh Verlin has mentioned to me multiple times that Carr is overly complimentary of every school in every interview he does. TIFWIW.

I like that about the kid, showing respect for programs who are interested. But, but, but did he call any of the other schools his second home?  :)

And if he did I'm going to ignore it because Penn State is my 2nd home. ;)

Interesting choice, hope it works out for him.

LVSL generally doesn't get every game on NBATV, there's too many of them. I tend to buy the SL package.

Hmmm, that's a really interesting article. It's amazing how complex that offense is and why it's incredibly tough to implement in advanced basketball these days like the NBA or NCAA where there's so much turnover in rosters year after year.

Mayland has supposedly cooled on Lamar Stevens DeAndre Hunter.

I'm really starting to think this is gonna come down to IU and us for Carr/Stevens combo. 

I'm still not reading much about DeAndre Hunter, has there been anything going on with his recruitment? The little bit I've read about him this summer makes him sound like a perfect fit for the energy and relentless attitude that Chambers wants to instill.

Ejike Obinna is one of those guys who played another sport until he sprouted to basketball height. He played soccer and just picked up basketball in 2013.

Well Embiid is not healthy. That's a big factor I think.

When people aren't answering questions, that should be taken as a "No."

Someone who might actually be able to start on this team?  Someone in the backcourt who might develop into a scorer to balance against the frontcourt guys? 

I get that you aren't going to find out-of-the-box talent in the second round, but if you've resigned yourself to taking multiple shots on projects, why wouldn't you try to find guys who can develop alongside your stars instead of a pile of forwards and centers?

Okay, which of those players was available? Hezonja, a player who generally plays without the ball? I don't think a player like you described was in this draft at that spot. There was Russell, and maybe Hezonja for what you described, and Okafor is a much better prospect than Hezonja imo.

I'm pleased with the Okafor pick.

A very politic response.  I wish that any of the other picks showed signs of a team trying to win basketball games in the near future.

So who did you want to have them take instead?

That is concerning but surely Randle, Clarkson and #2 is not enough.

Still think Aldridge goes back to Texas but an Aldridge-Cousins front court would be really good.

I've been doing some further research on this 2016 class, not just our players but at the top. And hooo boy. This class has some real talent and real potential at the top.

Why not do what the NFL does and make them stay in school 3 years it would provide a better college product and the NBA wouldn't be drafting so much on potential than on a finished product. Granted there would still be guys that don't pan out but that would probably be the exception.

Personally, I hate the idea of forcing kids to be gamed by the system for 3 years and delay them two years from getting their first post-rookie contract.

If it was #3 or for Noel, that would make me understand it substantially more. I wonder how courteous Hinkie was.

That Noel trade offer is legitimately insulting. We would never accept that.

I am not necessarily averse to the idea of bringing in a veteran. It just needs to be the right piece and fit. And I would rather bring in someone like Cory Joseph from San Antonio who is a RFA, than someone like Earl Watson or something.

I believe we've offered Walker but his interest in coming here is next to nil. I think the last rankings put him 10th.

I mean, they've all been here a bunch of times. I don't take it that seriously. Carr has been here 4 times. Does he really need to be at the camp?
