Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Victor posted it in the picks thread and not in here. It's above some of the picks that took place before him.

I just saw that, my fault. Tyrone Hill is a great pick at this stage, dude could really eat some glass.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

yeah, i like the ty hill pick, but i was looking for a 3pt shooting big for my team, so he wasn't even an option for me personally

haha.

Both picks (Hill, Lafrentz) are amazing picks, they were top 5 on my BPA list.

I think Hill is the best of the bunch, but by no means are those other picks bad. I'd probably rate them Hill, Raef, Zbo, Wright.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I think Victor should consider starting Ty w/ Amare. Amare and Bogut defensively just KILLS you. Ty + Amare is actually decent rebounding and defense...

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Raef ain't too bad. He's not guaranteed to tear his ACL. He had a pretty decent stretch of health considering he tore it his rookie year.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

W/ Raef, ACL tear is preexisting condition, no? I thought it happened before he ever played in the NBA.

Nice pick man. He's another below-the-radar player

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

One thing about Dunleavy is he's 6'9 and can slide into the 2 very naturally. Talk about fielding a tall lineup!! And you're right, going small, he can play the 4. Very few guys can play 2-3-4... He's like a poor man's Detlef Schremf.

Also, hitting on some more pros, he has played: 82, 75, 79, 81, 82, 82 games in his career. "cutting out" the 82 and 75, he's missed 4 games over 4 years of eligibility here. That's almost Stockton-good.

He's a good FT shooter, so in crunch time it's alright having the ball in his hands (big target too)

Dunleavy isn't even a BAD defender. He's fairly mediocre but he wont hurt you - his foul rate is low, his DRtg is just slightly below avg for a wingman and looking at those teams, it's a wonder his rating isn't worse. Above avg. rebounder for a 2/3 too.

All in all I REALLY think he's good value at this point.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I wouldn't say "under the radar". He's had one really good season and a slew of medicore/bad ones.

I don't really think it's a coincidence he and Granger had career years from behind the arc under Obie.

and wtf he can not play the 4 what is wrong with you.

I'm not saying he sucks or it's a terrible pick or anything like that.. but let's not go sucking Mike Dunleavy's dick just yet

Yeah, Larry Nance would've made your team pretty strong imo.
