I have a bad feeling that Exum will be gone before the Lakers turn to pick. I predict that most GMs in the top 5 will also stay away from Embiid bec of his injury. I have not seen Smart play, and even if I did, I still would rather see a player like Lowry play the point, not saying he is the ultimate answer, in fact I will not pay him more than 9 mil/year. But bet Smart and Embiid, Ill pick Smart bec Im so scared of taking an injured big guy.
