Austin Rivers' sure didn't. Hoping the Raptors grab him at 8, but the Warriors are very interested in him Ive heard.

Are you referring to Dion?

What about Derozan?

I think Waiters is a pretty sure bet. His jumper is streaky and a bit of an issue, in spite of this video, but you know a few things about what you're getting. He's physical, tough, strong, ballsy, and will go to the hoops. The groundwork is there for him to be a good defender, although Syracuse's zone makes that hard to see usually.
If his jumper continues to improve, he could be really good. But the basement on him is pretty high. And he's not like Rivers in that he's going to need a specific fit to make it work. The things he brings to the table will fit in pretty much anywhere.

You didnt see Austin Rivers workout. You saw the tail end of a workout where he was exhausted and tired. Which was the intent of the drill. Smarten up.

I think it was Waiters who got a promise.

Lots of people think it was the Suns.

I think it was the Suns or Blazers. Really excited for the draft night though.

His jumper is wet but that man defense was weakkkk. I could score every time with that kind of d.

That said, I see Dion having some great NBA success relative to where he'll be picked.
