The median outcome I see for Petrusev is a good bench player, with potential for a bit of improvement in the coming years. I think that's good for a pick in the 18/22 range in this draft.
Plus, as much as he sucked at Gonzaga, he had a very good improvement curve in this current season, in a better league than the NCAA also. That surely points the arrow up for his potential in the tier above (NBA).
If he ends up drafted in this range, or if goes in the early 2nd round, it's all relative IMO... I mean, we here from the comfort of our couches don't know jack about what goes on behind the curtains in the draft; could be the case, as I'm surely have happened before, of agents directing him to be drafted under a certain situation which they think could suit him better. The key, for these players, is to be put in a team which could develop them and, hopefully, have an open path for them to get minutes earlier on.
