    Never too early to get started on the next draft! This years draft was unique in the amount of white wing players being taken early, hoping that will start a trend..

    I've been looking over some 2019 mock drafts and I can say it looks petty bleak, with only a couple whites sprinkled in.
    On the bright side its still very early and i'm sure they'll be a few whites have huge seasons and shoot up draft boards by seasons end!
    So as of right now here's out top prospects for 2019:

    1. PF Killian Tillie 6'10 215 Gonzaga
    Lottery pick

    2
    . SF Luka Simanic 6'10 210 Croatia
    Lottery pick

    3. SG Tyler Herro 6'5 200 Kentucky (possible one-and-done player, we'll see)
    Lottery-mid 1st rd

    4. PF/C Ethan Happ 6'10 235 Wisconsin
    Mid 1st rd

    5. C Goga Bitadze 7'0 250 Rep. of Georgia
    Mid-late 1st rd

    6. SG Max Strus 6'6 215 DePaul (never heard of him until now)
    Late 1st-early 2nd rd

    7. PF Borisa Simanic 6'11 210 Serbia
    Early 2nd

    8. C/PF Marko Simonovic 7'0 220 Montenegro Early-mid 2nd

    9. PF Luke Maye 6'8 240 North Carolina
    Mid 2nd

    10. SG/PG Kyle Guy 6'2 185 Virginia
    Mid 2nd

    PG Jon Elmore 6'3 190 Marshall
    Mid-late 2nd


    12. C
    Laurynas Birutis 7'1 225 Lithuania
    Mid-late 2nd

    13. PG Arturs Zagars 6'3 180 Latvia
    Late 2nd

    14. SF/SG Tres Tinkle 6'8 220 Oregon St.

    Nice job, Deceptive Speed.

    I sincerely hope you are correct, but several mock drafts I looked at paint a much bleaker picture for white prospects. The top independent DWF site (NBADraft.net) has only two whites going in round 1 (Bitadze #21 & Ty Jerome #28). Only 4 or 5 whites in round 2?

    One mock draft from CBS Sports' supposed "top draft expert" currently has only one white being selected in round one, but lasting all the way to 30th overall. That's the final pick of the round!

    This Lonsman over at Bleacher Report has gone "full KKK" (white friendly compared to others) with 3 whites selected, but not until the very end of round one: https://bleacherreport.com/articles...t-predictions-post-2019-trade-deadline#slide0

    I could post more info or links, but the point is pretty clear -- mock drafts so far have been absolutely brutal towards whites.


    P.S: Hope Ty Herro stays in school at least one more year. Last thing we need is another Donte DiVicenzo or T.J. Leaf scenario were they foolishly leave early, then get rewarded being first round picks....only to quickly discover they're at the far end of the bench.

    What about Dylan Windler? Seems like he will likely get drafted.

    This guy Mike Daum is a beast. Since he plays for South Dakota he might not get drafted.
