Every Rip Me For Daniel Orton in the lotto? Here's a mock draft with him in the lotto
Chad Ford from ESPN says he very well could go lotto too. He actually thinks it is very possible that all five UK guys go in the lottery.
Chad Forde really thinks all 5 in the lotto that seems to be pushing it. Wes Johnson, Aminu, Montiejunas, Aldrich, Henry, Favors, Turner are all lotto picks, so that's 7 guys could be 8 if Monroe decides to enter. Also Whiteside, Udoh, Ed Davis are all potential lotto guys. I don't see all 5 going in the lotto. 4 at most, depending on the order and what team's feel they need most will determine if 4 go in the lotto.
Agreed but from what I seen/heard...The main man is Bledsoe. He's the guy who people don't know if he's going lotto
I do think that Orton is more likely to go in the lotto over Bledsoe as well. Though, I think Bledsoe is the more skilled player at his position. Have any of the 5 officially signed with an agent yet??
Cousins is the only one so far that has been confirmed to have signed with an agent. Bledsoe and Patterson have been rumored. Patterson is supposed to have a press conference next week to announce his intentions. Remember, Patterson entered the draft last year, so if he enters again this year (which he has yet to do), then his college eligibility is over. You can only "test the waters" one time. He's really struggled with the decision because he knows this year, if he enters he can't pull his name back out. Most are expecting him to enter though. Orton is working out in California right now and has not hired an agent. Wall hasn't either, but that's a foregone conclusion.
% of going in lotto
John Wall: 100
DeMarcus Cousins: 100
Patrick Patterson: 80
Eric Bledsoe: 50
Daniel Orton: 50
Why in the world would the raps take Motiejunas? I bet you cant give me one remotely good reason
Sabonnis was supposedly Shaq with a jumper during his prime in Europe...bargnani has alot of skill, he just needs to be more assertive every game....But come on, seriously knicksboy, a Bargnani and Motiejunas frontcourt would get abused badly on the boards and down low, worse than how it was with bosh and bargs
I had no idea the folks over at DraftExpress were such amateurs.
The only thing I like about draftexpress is that they have measurements, otherwise I think it's a wack site. If this site could get measurements next to guy's profiles that would make it so much better of a site.
When I go to draft express their site just seems so much more professional and it looks great...I think a new format and layout for this site would be great, it looks dull and boring to me....I do like this site a ton more though, the forums at DX blow
I like the layout on this site kills draftexpress. I think the scouting reports are about even with this site, but in everything else I see this site better.
ive never been to draft express. I've been coming here since it opened in 2000 and what can i say, im loyal. Do they have a chat site? If so we should have a debate off with them We could pick an all debate team and go at with draftexpress and clown those fools.
This site has been around for 10 years??? Why doesn't Aran or Adi come up with a 10 year anniversary logo then. That would be quite sick.
Good idea...I dont even know if the forums there are even close to being as active as ours is
One word to describe their forums: mediocre.
Draft express is not amateur.
Daniel Orton does have a good shot of getting in the lottery because he is a potential top 5 pick next season. Why not take a potential top 5 pick with the 14th pick? He could be good enough to be a potential backup for a season and work his way into the rotation
Draft express I find amateur as well. Besides the point I don't see Orton worth being taken in the lottery.
Its not a good idea to be sticking up for DX on nbadraftnet....We'll cook that goose..
You know I would like to have a big board on this site to rank the prospects as an addition to the mock draft.
The scouting reports on DraftExpress are top-notch no doubt, better than this site IMO. But this site does have WAY better mocks though. DraftExpress has Devin Ebanks with the last pick in the 1st round. I'm not crazy about Ebanks really, but I do think that's beside the point. A mock is supposed to be about where you think a team will pick a guy, whether you like a guy or not. I NEVER pay DraftExpress" mocks attention.
Yea come on. If he goes in the lottery, I'll rip my eyes out. If thats the case the college ball means absolutely nothing. The one year the NBA uses to evaluate these kids on a "higher level" really is pointless if a guy who avgs 3pts 3 rbs goes in the lottery. Another Saer Sene? (I hope not, I think he has potential, just not ready yet) What has he got better at since HS. I'm pretty sure he hasn't done much on the court to show you what, playing only 13 min per.
Aran told me that site is all hype anyway. Their mocks suck, and usually have some crazy orders. If you look at their 2011 mock, they got like the 1st 24 picks with the whole mcdonalds all american roster. Lol, its crazy. They have good detailed evaluations, but thats just cause they put more into it. If Aran wanted to do that, he could.
Other than the scouting reports and measurements, I don't pay DraftExpress any attention.
I see his draft situation to be similar to BJ Mullens. He played a bit less than Mullens but neither put up great production. Both were stellar in HS though and that is what propels their draft stocks. Orton is def. a better player though and for that reason he has a shot at the lotto. Not to mention the main reason he wasn't getting PT was because of the talent/seniority ahead of him. I think Orton's future is much brighter than Mullen's but I think both should have stayed in school. Hard to argue with either's decision though when you are talked about as a potential lotto player.
