    Default Grant Nelson NBA Draft??

    @theNBACENTRAL


    KJ @Kjpistons

    Grant Nelson is one of the most interesting prospects in the 2023 NBA Draft. He’s 6’11 but handles and moves like a guard and he’s a really good athlete as well. He’s currently averaging 16/8/2 and 2 blocks a game. He’s also shooting well shooting 51% from the field.

    I think he's got skills that would translate to the NBA but I don't think he's going to be anywhere near ready to make that jump by this coming draft. He needs to improve his strength and/or his 3-point shot or he'll be an offensive liability in the NBA.

    I just hope he's still at NDSU by next fall and not somewhere like Kansas.

    Saw that yesterday as well. I don't think he goes in the draft in 2023, that was the surprising part, they should've listed him as a 2024 prospect. It wouldn't surprise me if he goes through the draft process to get feedback and such and then returns to school like Abmas did but I doubt he leaves for the draft after this year. Just hoping his return to school is to NDSU and not a P5.

    I agree he has special talent---I think biggest area needs to improve is his outside shot (3's)

    Is NDSU the best place for PLAYER DEVELOPMENT or OFFENSIVE DEVELOPMENT----

    I think he could play anywhere ---- I know if I was him I'd explore my options

    Go through the NBA Draft process and consider a different place to play

    I'd miss watching him play because its the ONLY reason I am watching this years team!!!!!

    He is taking notice of this and will look to make a move to a stronger league. If he does wish him well.

    They said on the broadcast last night that NBA scouts were in Denver to watch him play, not sure if true or not but wouldn't be surprised. If so they saw the good and the bad, he dominated in the paint and in 1 on 1 situations but also had 3 or 4 really bad turnovers and missed both of his 3's. Talent is obviously there, thinking the advice for him would be to hone his skills for another season.

    Well if he wasn't transferring after this year, he probably will now. Can't blame him.

    Ya going to be tough to keep him I think especially with NIL. Someone could pay him a million to come to a big time school who knows.

    He needs one more year of college to improve his shooting. He needs to get that 3 point percentage up and even his free throw percentage to be a good stretch four.
    If it flies it dies.

    Long for the days of freezing in the south stands of Dacotah Field.
