    On Sportscenter, SVP was discussing how the draft was odd this year in regards to player evaluation being all across the board for the different teams. Nassir Little went way later than they thought, Memphis was stoked to see Clarke fall as far as he did, and some teams had Rui ranked in the 20s.

    Although they play different positions, I think Clarke has Andre Iguodala-type upside. This obviously depends on him developing an outside shot, but I think Clarke can defend a SF without problems, and may be one of the few guys who could actually challenge a James Harden step back (if there is such a thing) and also stick with him off the dribble.

    The general consensus in DC media is that while Rui didn't have the highest ceiling of available players, he had a higher floor. Wizards were more interested in stability and consistency than super star potential. They got two mature, stable players in Rui and Schofield.

    Couldn't agree with you more. He has the highest PER of any collegiate other than Zion. PER is weighted more to offense and Clarke is a superb defender.
