Draft Notes: Exum, Mock Drafts, O’Bryant

Dante Exum is one of the draft’s most talented, but riskiest prospects, writes Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. One major question surrounding Exum is whether he’s better suited to play shooting guard than point guard, notes Robbins. A talent evaluator for an NBA team told Robbins, “He’s got to learn how to play point guard in the NBA. He’s somewhat similar to a lot of point guards working their way into the league now — guys who are looking to score the ball as well as pass the ball. Are they real point guards? In the traditional sense, no. But he’s the kind of point guard we’re getting into the league now.”

More draft notes and news:

  • In a separate piece, Robbins released his mock draft, which is topped by Andrew Wiggins going to the Cavaliers.
  • The staff over at Basketball Insiders released their updated mock draft, and also have Wiggins as their consensus top-pick.
  • In his mock draft, Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel has Wiggins being selected first as well, and predicts a number of trades, including the Lakers shipping the seventh pick to the Pacers for Roy Hibbert, and the Magic selecting Joel Embiid and trading him to the Celtics for Exum.
  • Johnny O’Bryant had a strong workout for the Bucks, reports Gery Woelfel of The Journal Times (Twitter link).

    Hibbert for the 7th pick?! I’d think twice about trading the 27th pick for him. Unless you think the playoffs were some type of massive fluke, you’re going to be on the hook for roughly $31M over the next two seasons. No thanks.

      I’d bet on the Hibbert playoffs being some sort of fluke.

        Yeah, but how much? Even at his best, he’s never scored over 12.8 PPG, never done over 8.8 RPG and never played more than 29 MPG. Even if you adjust for the Indiana’s slow pace, his advanced numbers are bad. Career high PER 19.3 (three years ago) and his TS% has been under 50 the last two seasons. Not really an elite rebounder. Pretty much just a paint presence if he’s not engaged. I wouldn’t want to give up the 7th pick and $15M of cap flexibility in the summer of ’15 for him.

          The problem is the contract not Hibbert, he was never gonna be worth that ridiculous deal anyways. I think the problem was Larry Bird over tinkered and f’ed up the team chemistry.
