Tyler smith should have been considered a mid to late 1st rd pick- he should have entered the draft

The only guy I think made a "bad" decision is Daye. I've seen nothing from him that says he'll be a successful NBA player. Teague could've helped his stock by going back to Wake, along with so many points being in the draft, but I don't fault him.

Good decisions in bold. Can't believe Meeks left Kentucky, he would've had a shot at a national championship.

I think Meeks was concerned about fit in the dribble drive scheme. And his stock probably wasn't going up or down at this point.

I think Mills should have gone back to school. Ending the year on the injury, and being in such a deep PG pool is going to push him down the board. He's a class ahead of most of his conference in terms of talent, so it's unlikely he'd have a bad year next year, and he could have easily moved up.

Majok made the best decision I'd say. Right now he is a raw, talented big who simply was not going to be drafted. It is rumored that he might go to Europe because of his family's financial situation, but he may just stay at UConn which will be best for him. Calhoun has an impressive track record of developing and pumping out NBA players, even though he doesn't get 4-5 5* recruits every season like UNC and Duke. I'd say 2 years in college and if he is as good as billed, he will slip into the first round area.

Those raw guys you never know about. I remember Uconn's Ajou Ajou Deng getting nips before he ever stepped on a court too, like Majok, but the more he played, the less he had that mystical upside. But as far as basketball development goes, he's much better off coming back.
