Still though, I'd like someone to explain to me the massive difference between Cade and Saddiq Bey in the pros. Cade is a better passer for sure, but I'm just not fully convinced of the hype.
I would probably have Green and Suggs and maybe Mobley in front.
Cunningham is very efficient with his movement, is a better distributor, and a better defender. I think he is overrated as well, but he is still very good. He gets where he wants to get rather easily so it's easy not to notice it.
Bey is really just a shooter with limited physical tools. Bey's season wasn't all that impressive. He just played a lot of minutes.
There are things Cade should be better at to get the kind of hype he is getting. His 2P% was way too low. A relatively high percentage of his shots came from mid-range. He doesn't get to the basket as often as you'd like. His rebound rate was rather low for his size against college competition. He turned the ball over way too much. Some of this can be attributed to all of the attention he received from defenses, but he isn't without his warts.
I'd say there is a better chance than not that he doesn't end up as the best player from this draft, but he is the safest pick.
