Oladipo isn't small. He's 6'4, solidly built and has freakish length and athleticism. He's rarely going to see an opposing SG more than an inch taller than him and often he'll be taller. I'm not going to not draft a guy based on the idea that he might become injury prone, but for no specific reason.
He's not Wade though, never thought he was. I can't think of a great comparison. Tony Allen pre-injury with better shooting or something like that I guess. I think he'd be a fantastic fit here. Defintely not there at 7 though.
Oladipo is barely 6'4" and while he has a chance to start on some teams I just don't see him as the guy we need. We need a scorer. Obviously defense is important to me as well but we need someone who can create. I think Glen Rice Jr. has a better all around game right now. Nonetheless, Oladipo won't be around for us to draft anyhow.
