Default Would Billy Owens be the unanimous #1 pick in this draft

Billy Owens was a 6-8/9 SF/PF out of Syracuse that could handle the ball like a guard, pass, had a post game, and had a jumper..unlike Ben Simmons. A very talented player that didn't live up to what he should have been perhaps because of a low motor or lack of fire..ala Ben Simmons. Some people even comapred Owens to Magic. When I see Simmons I don't know why he reminds me of a poor man's Billy Owens. Owens went #3 in his draft.
