Ingram is a little overrated by the scouting groundswell. They are dreaming of Kevin Durant - but Durant was a much better player in college his one season than Ingram.

I will laugh if the team with the #1 pick doesn't pick the OBVIOUS best prospect (Ben Simmons) for Ingram.

Don't get me wrong btw, I like the kid - I think he'll eventually be a good pro. He just shouldn't go #1 over a guy like Simmons.

What happens this summer? Will Wood sign with them again? If he does, I assume he will end up with a more favorable to him contract. Then what happens to his playing time and performance? Maybe I am overly impressed with his college highlights and size. But I still think his potential warranted keep that team favorable deal and playing more, probably a lot more. Either he would start to develop... or he would do no real harm to the tank.

If they had played Wood and he developed, it is a win. If he played and cost points and wins, that would have probably been ok or fine too.

Thanks for the posts on this topic. Remain curious how it will look in a year or two.

Utah Summer League Opener:

"Former UNLV standout Christian Wood, who played in 17 games for the 76ers last year, was the top scorer in the opening game Monday, scoring 20 points on 7-of-9 shooting. He had a particularly good 86-second stretch in the fourth quarter when he scored eight points, sinking a 3-pointer, thundering down the lane for a dunk and then getting free for another dunk and getting fouled"

From Ben Dowsett, Basketball Insiders:

Minus studs, Christian Wood shows out: Multiple teams rested a few key guys on the short turnaround back-to-back, most notably the 76ers. Already without star Ben Simmons as a precaution for cramps Monday, Philly also went without starters Richaun Holmes, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and TJ McConnell. All the absences in the frontcourt gave way to a starting nod and nearly 20 minutes for former UNLV standout Christian Wood, and for the second consecutive day his play stood out.

At 6-foot-10 with long limbs and athletic, Wood bounced between the NBA and the D-League last year after going undrafted and being signed by the 76ers. He was a potential first-round pick on some boards who reportedly fell for character-related reasons, and he’s showcasing the skill that had him on many teams’ radar a year ago. Wood poured in 19 points and seven boards on just eight field-goal attempts, draining two triples and drawing 11 attempts at the line. He was loud and active defensively from the back line, altering several plays with his length and strong timing on help defense.

Wood isn’t currently claimed by an NBA team, but don’t be surprised if that changes in the near future. Wood simply has too many skills for no one to take a flier on him – he has shooting range all over the floor, shot-blocking skill at the rim and has clearly put in work improving his strength and conditioning in the past year. He can over-extend himself at times on the floor, but a smart organization with good player development could fix that in a hurry. Wood looks every bit like an NBA rotation player early on this summer.

New team, new chance for minutes / development. Worst case is not that bad. If you need to move up, gotta try to find some upside.
