    He looks like the kind of guy waiting for an injury or someone to slip and he'll swoop in and steal your job.
    Wright or Cojo better bring their A game ALL THE TIME.
    I have a feeling he'll be able to hang around the NBA for a long long time.

    Norman Powell looks like he could be a second round steal. He works really hard from the looks of it and he sets goals for himself, as oppose to Delon Wright who just seems to go with the flow from the looks of it. I'm probably wrong but Delon doesn't seem to have that intense desire to want to get better.

    We have 5 prospects that have been acquired by Masai:

    Bruno
    Bebe
    D.Wright
    D.Daniels
    N.Powell

    How many of these guys have to become contributing rotation players for Masai's drafting to be considered a success?

    How do your expectations change depending on where the player is drafted?

    For example, given the massive gamble taken by Masai at drafting Bruno 20th, does that mean he would have to be a better player than say D.Wright who was drafted where he should have been?
    To be considered a success?

    Wright seems uncomfortable in front of the press and expresses himself awkwardly

    Since none of those 5 were even a lottery pick and two were 2nd rounders, if you can get 1 starter and 1 rotation player who hangs around for 8+ years it's a success.

    Even two good rotation players would be considered a success in the grand scheme of things.

    To be completely fair, I would probably be content with my life if that happened to me at any point

    For me, Mo Pete is the level of success I hope for from a player drafted in the late teens and beyond.

    Funny that people think Bebe is the least likely to produce yet he was the highest pick (16th).
    He wasn't picked by a genius GM!
