Oh I got confused. I firmly believe every draft has a few players that go unnoticed or overlooked, that end up outplaying their draft position. It's up to the front office to find those guys. To say that the "draft flattened out" it's like you didn't even give yourself a chance to look for those guys. The draft has never been an absolute hierarchy of best to worst players. Going back to the Payton thing, yes i'm glad we got something back but with this team's drafting record, i'm not sure I have faith in them. 

yeah but what I'm saying is the reason they only drafted 2 players instead of 4 is they didn't want to bring in 4 rookies. you can't play them all and can only have 2 2way contracts so what are you gonna do? I think this year was a unique year and shouldn't be thought of as a typical go to option for management. I think coming away with Isaac and Iwundu is really solid. I think Iwundu has starter potential one day and Isaac has cornerstone potential.

Its not even really about identifying players.  Every draft theres 20 or so decent bets for nba players in the second round and only something like 5 of them turn into long term nba players.  But that's what's great about having multiple second rounders, you get multiple chances at finding those players and no financial commitment. You draft an interesting guy and find out he sucks after summer league, training camp, and preseason? Whatever, just cut him.  But they're zero risk only reward players and with two way contracts I'm still kinda shocked we traded it for nothing

The deadline was January 10th i believe.  Something like that.

so we can send anyway to the gleague whenever?

Yup. We can send vucevic there to get his legs back if we want.  

I think at some level of experience a player can refuse if he wants.

Joel Embiid is really really good.

That's why you don't watch basketball around sharp things
