    Of course it does, as did Claudes from freshman year (and still does).

    Claude is nowhere to be seen on that mock btw.

    Maybe Jonathan Givony is really Swain's uncle though, or something. You should drop him a line and let him know, Swain does not have a legit chance.

    Mock drafts are a bunch of garbage. Especially 2025. Total SWAGs

    I think you are missing the point.....

    I'd look up Jonathan Givony. Not like he is some kid living in his parents' basement with a draft blog. Swain has a legit shot.

    Swain is 6'6 and has some good athleticism. What this guy is basing his projection on I have no idea? Its a wild ass guess. That is all.

    He's 6'7 with NBA athleticism at a 2/3 position. He's basically Naji, (frame, attribute wise) if you want a comparable.

    With all that said, obviously he has a lot to work on from a skillset point, and he needs to put on muscle but 6'7 guys with that kind of athleticism and a guard skillset don't grow on trees and NBA gm/scouts love it. He's only 18...very young for his class where Claude by comparison is 20 and will turn 21 before Swain turns 19.

    And want any NBA team would want with a 6’6” athletic basketball player I have no idea. (Sarcasm)

    Swain is 18 years old. He’s the youngest player on the team. Think of yourself at 18 and then think of yourself at 22. Swain might be scary good by the time he becomes 22. Many NBA draft picks are picked purely on potential and aren’t expected to become immediate impact players, especially 2nd rounders. How much Swain improves in this coming offseason, both physically and as a player, may well be an indication of what his true potential is. It looks like the person who made this projection believes that he will make some serious progress over the next 12 months. Let’s hope so. My uneducated and amateur opinion is that he has a higher ceiling than Claude. But only time will tell.

    People with more NBA draft knowledge than you are saying he can be drafted. How about sitting this one out?

    Sit something out? You must be new around here!

    Meh. People said the same thing when Naji and Colby were on lists and posters suggested they each might leave early. Having said that, both Naji and Colby were a year or more further along and you could see the potential. Swain has the frame and athleticism but has a long way to go.
