College Basketball writer David Cobb of CBS Sports is predicting that LSU forward Tari Eason to be picked at No. 9 overall to the San Antonio Spurs.
quote:

Round 1 - Pick 9: San Antonio Spurs

Tari Eason PF

LSU • SOPH • 6'8" / 216 LBS

Prospect Rank: 15th
Position Rank: 5th
PPG: 16.9
RPG: 6.6
APG: 1
3P%: 35.9%

Eason enjoyed a breakout sophomore season after transferring to LSU from Cincinnati. He can score at all three levels and is a high-upside, versatile defender. His college coaches employed him as a sixth man, and it wouldn't be surprising to see Eason cast in the same role at the next level. At 6-8, he's like a perimeter-oriented Montrezl Harrell in terms of motor, grit and the type of role he may play.
The 2022 NBA Draft will take place in Brooklyn next month on Thursday, June 23.

By all accounts seems like a great guy. Truly wish him the best and glad he gave us his best even if just for 1 season.

I second this. He played hard on both sides of the ball, regardless of the scoreboard or the available roster.

****His college coaches employed him as a sixth man, ***** Will Wade employed him as a sixth man, and Tari would be the first one to tell you. Tari came to LSU because WW promised he would let him play in that spot.

In today’s NBA of position-less basketball, he’s a real weapon. He needs to get drafted by the right team but I could see him being a very productive immediately.

Probably the best spot got him. Top 10. But to a place he can develop for a year or two.

He’s gonna be good, may take a year or 2 to develop but he guard just about anyone, is a beast at scoring around the rim and he can hit 3s. Guys like that don’t last long in the draft
