    Very cool! Congratulations Anton! It has been a world of fun following your career since you were a frosh. I can hardly wait until you step on the court next season as a Zag.

    I like the picture of Jaden McDaniel’s hold on Anton’s jersey.

    I've enjoyed watching him for 4 years in HS and AAU. He has rarely not been the best player on the court. He does need to tap that next level, and when he does, watch out.

    I wasn't aware he was still growing. If that's true.......wow. 2019 will be very bright, 2020 will be legendary.

    Huge shout to @reggieprimetime for putting together a big-time Portland Generals squad to take on the USA team this evening. Jaden McDaniels, Paolo Banchero, Daishen Nix, Marjon Beauchamp, PJ Fuller, to name a few. Gym packed full of NBA scouts.

    Sorry if this was previously cleared up, but I recall an interview with Anton (sorry, no source, months ago) where he stated he was working on his point guard skills. That statement seemed out of place to me. Do we know if he was just joking or maybe just generally saying he was working on those skills? I remember, at the time, thinking he was gearing up to help that position at GU, but I did not find anything backing that up.

    Does anyone else recall that interview? It is likely in this thread, but I could not easily find it.

    Is it straight crazy to think he might get time playing some form of point?

    Not only does every kid in the land want to declare by Year 2 these days, yet all 6'10" kids wanna be Ben Simmons too.

    Participation Trophies and social media commentary is the root issue here.

    Lol

    I'm sure one Twitter follower saw his highlight tape, and him dribbling down court and was like, "the next Ben Simmon right here!". Probably got a 100 likes and now its "advice".

    Different world.

    Thank you Zags_Fanatic, for posting the proper link!

    “I’ve been working on my guard skills all summer,” he said. “Next year, I think, it’s probably the position I’ll be playing mostly. I’ve been working on all my outside stuff.” - Anton Watson Dec. 2018
    The context of the article is about his 2019 school end-year prep team. This quote does seem to have him referencing "next year" - school end-year 2020 as GU...

    *edit - maybe I am reading it incorrectly and the "next year" is/was the 2019 end-year at Prep.

    Very interesting that Zag coaches have told him he will play the 3 and a little at the 4. I love it. Frees up post minutes for Petrusev, Timme, Zakarov, Ballo to earn.

    I’m thinking w today’s news that Norvell is staying in the draft, this means either Kispert gets most of his minutes at the 2 w Watson and Arlauskas covering the 3 OR Zags bring in another guard allowing Kispert to stay at the 3.

    Today is Day 2 of USA Basketball U-19 team tryouts. Hoping Anton Watson and Jalen Suggs are enjoying the experience and both make the team. Anyone seeing any social media posts about who is shining in tryouts? I’m not on Twitter or Instagram etc so appreciate any updates shared here.

    It is now open communication season with 2021 recruits so most media coverage is on who is offering who. Corey Evans of Rivals is at USA basketball and put out one tweet to summarize day 1. I have copied it below as it mentions our friend Walker Kessler:

    “Good day at the USA under-19 trials. Oklahoma State’s Isaac Likekele the standout. Impressive playmaking skills with size. Walker Kessler, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl and Evan Mobley among the others that stood out”

    Jalen Green has been outstanding on Sunday. A little extra bounce in his step, most vocal I’ve ever seen him and playing at a very high level. Nice day for Gonzaga bound Anton Watson too. #USABMU19
