    It's a thing and it's happening now.

    Probably the most talented group they have ever had for one of these, at least as far as name recognition goes.

    Glad to see my dude Stanton Kidd is back.

    Man, Justin Patton was my guy in that draft. Too bad that his feet are apparently made out of glass. I still believe.

    I remember people saying that Utah should have picked Cam Payne over Trey Lyles since he'd be the perfect point guard for us lol.

    Nice find Cy, thanks for posting.

    Is this the 6th or 7th year doing it? This is how they discovered Royce Oneal.

    Someone referred to him as lightning in a bottle. Trying to remember who...

    Patton made his NBA debut on April 1, 2018, against the Utah Jazz, scoring two points on two shots and made one steal in his only game with the Timberwolves.

    Glass feet, on a 7-footer. Bad news.

    Kobi Simmons I thought was solid his rookie year in Memphis... only 22... not sure if he was hurt or if he just sucks, but he didn't play.

    I knew I recognized the name Perry Ellis, so I googled it. Then I remembered why I knew it.

    Probably just sucking at basketball somewhere. I thought he'd be good.

    seems like somewhat of a knucklehead, or at least i get that vibe without really knowing much about his personality. should've stayed in college. it's like most highschool mcd's all-americans thinks they deserve to be one and done even if they don't do anything to merit it.

    I actually kind of like Bebe, surprised he has to do one of these. Think he'd be absolutely fine as a 3rd string C.

    I remember wanting to take a 2nd round shot on Newman as well.

    Oh well, hope somebody stands out, talent from nowhere is always nice.

    Willie Reed, Stanton Kidd, Jairus Lyles, Kelan Martin, Herpes. Some familiar names.

    **** you talking bout? i'm not hating at all, he could've had a big sophomore and/or junior season and actually been drafted and making real nba money rather than bouncing around. if google is correct, between his 2 way contract with memphis and then being waived by cleveland, he's made maybe $300k? that's ok money, but not much after taxes and definitely not life-changing longterm. he also bought his mom a range rover on that salary for some dumb reason and is making alot less than he would've made as a likely first round pick after another season or 2 in college.

    Interesting that Naz and Cavanaugh aren't participating. There are some former first round picks on this list that some scouting departments were very high on.

    I just watched some college and gleague highlights of Patton.

    If the foot is kind of healthy sign him now.

    He would be fun to watch on the second unit with Joe ingles. He has great hands, quick instincts and a soft shooting touch. He gets up and down the floor fast. Has range out to 3pt line. Can dribble and pass off the dribble.

    Please basketball gods or balanced universe let his foot be okay and let him sign a cheap multi year deal with the jazz. You owe us for Dante.

    Patton was drafted a couple of picks after Spidey and long before Bradley. He is only 21.
