Having the balls to use lotto picks on small school guards and his unreal R2 track record speak a lot to his abilities there. FA is where he really sucks, and may suck enough to make a good argument that he shouldn't keep his job. The number of times we were saved from ourselves by players backing out on big deals we tried to hand them is astonishing. Chandler, Kanter, Whiteside.
This has been covered ad nauseum in past threads, but I'm genuinely curious how you see his record as "near perfect"? Lillard was going to be the pick without Olshey. CJ was a good pick, but he was expected to go top 10. Barton is probably the best diamond in the rough that Olshey ever found. Layman too is playing above average for his draft number. Every other rookie that has been drafted by Olshey is playing about average with the other players selected around or after them in the draft...
Are all performing about average or worse to their draft position.
