Robinson is an enigma to many, having fallen off the radar nationally after de-committing from Western Kentucky last year and never playing any college ball before declaring for the Draft. But he has had some eye-raising workouts—one for the Lakers—in the last few weeks, displaying the raw ability that made him a McDonald’s all-American in high school. He can run and block shots seemingly at will. There is definitely significant talent there. But Robinson will need to display some stability wherever he goes. He’s bounced around schools, agents and workout people the past couple of years and needs MacKenzie Weegar Jersey to have real structure around him if he’s going to blossom. The City of the Angels is not known for providing structure to young, wealthy men; to them, it’s known for instant entrée into the newest, swankiest clubs and bottles of Moet Imperial on demand. That will not help Robinson. If the Lakers go this route they’ll have to invest in a support system for the 20-year-old that will be well-served saying no to him in unison, early and often.

And if more offense is the issue, Young is the guy, whether he’s at the one or the two. He’s an elite scorer, leading the nation in scoring and assists in his one season in Norman, while also getting to the foul line at a prodigious rate (236 attempts, second in the country). With Conley back, J.B. Bickerstaff can bring Young in off the bench, or go small ball and play them together if Evans goes off to greener pastures; Young will struggle on D, but Conley can help alleviate that some by picking up the opposition’s more lethal backcourt scorer on cross matches.

The Cavs, of course, could move this pick if it helps their chances of keeping LeBron James. But if they think they have any chance of keeping James—which they won’t likely know for sure on Draft night—and keep the pick, it would make sense to take Carter, who Mark Jackson Youth Jersey anchored the back of Duke’s zone defense as a freshman. There’s no guarantee he’ll be able to guard in space or on switches.
