My own view is that Clingan's ranking upside will be in the 30's in 2022 but might only slightly rise from here, based on the way Hunter Dickinson is valued in 2020 at #32 now dropping to #41. Dickinson has +2" and +30lbs on Clingan at the moment, is the same style player, but, is also a very good 3 point shooter who takes multiple attempts per game. I've watched Dickinson 3x/4x and he is an impact player. I just think the raters love the rim protecting bigs that are fleet and look pretty, a la Mark Williams this year at #27 and Evan Mobley at #3 who I saw get way outplayed by Lance Ware @ #37. There is a bit of bias against the style of a Clingan, (but not in my eyes). Caveat; I should say I have not yet seen Clingan in person.
