I don't know what the f*ck is so hard about drafting a player of need. Now we are either banking on those guys either signing with our summer league team or signing with us after the summer league cuts. At least if we drafted someone, they'd be guaranteed to be on our summer league team and the contract wouldn't even be guaranteed.
A f*cking 10 year old could've made a better draft pick.
Maybe the team has worked up a backup plan to invite quite a few of them, and didn't want to shun the others by drafting just anyone.
But apparently 29 other teams felt these guys weren't worth it either, so really it's no biggie.
