To me Hunter is a lock down defender who couldn't be a 3rd option on a contender and is too old to believe he will add those skills.
I would take Sekou , Culver and even White before I took Hunter if Barrett is gone.
Both Butler and Leonard came into the league with limited offensive games. I don't know but it seems like the bad defenders never become good, or even passable defenders. I think I'd rather draft a guy who will give me elite defense but who has a limited offensive game, than draft the next TJ Warren or Clarkson at No. 5.
Culver is a solid defender and a better offensive prospect imo. Sekou is only 18 and already a better offensive player with the physical tools to become an elite defender despite only showing solid weak side blocking and ability to stay in front of anyone on the perimeter , should be the top target imo with Barrett probably gone at 3 or 4 and Culver taken too.
To me 5 is too high for a defensive specialist.
I get a bit of a jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none vibe from Culver. I don't see a single skill I consider him elite at. He's a good defender for a guard. Is there anything else you'd say he's good at? He sees the floor okay. He's an okay passer. He's a meh shooter. His handle is alright. I worry he projects out to average starting 2 guard. Is that the guy you want to draft at No. 5?
