If this dude turns into someone who can play for 10-12 minutes, grab rebounds, provide some defense and learn to hit a 15 footer its not really a bad pick considering how late in the first round it was, deep draft or no.

You can find undrafted free agents to play 10-12 mins and provide some defense and grab rebounds. You do not waste the 26th pick on someone who's ceiling may be Jeff Foster when there were better options on the board value wise.

Anderson averaged 16 and 8 in the NBA this year. Plumlee averaged 6 and 7 in his 4th year of college. What are we even talking about here?

Something I constantly try to explain to my less sports-centric friends is that it isn't about the player you draft, but the players you didn't.

If you only consider Plumlee, you can make a case for him. But the same can be said for almost any guy that is even a possible draft pick. The question is what do you give up to get him. And this case, the Pacers passed on guys like Doron Lamb, Arnett Moultrie, Jeff Taylor, Draymond Green, Quincy Miller, and ESPECIALLY Perry Jones III.

Someday in the future, people will be just as amazed that PJIII was drafted after Plumlee as we now are that Milicic was drafted over Wade and Bosh. If he isn't still with the Thunder, or injured, he'll be a star on some team. 3rd highest potential in the entire draft.

Somewhere Nikola Tskitishvili is looking at his first team all summer league plaque and smiling. As are many other average to poor players who did well in a meaningless week long exhibition.

Team doctors say Perry's knees have four years left and Brooks will never play Jones.

But Jones is an asset. You give him reserve minutes, let him show off his athleticism and length, and then have a high value piece to trade without much risk. He isn't going to be playing more than 10-15 MPG for the Thunder, likely either resting Ibaka or Durant.

Can you trade Plumlee? No team would is likely to give you more than a second rounder for him, if that. And to be honest, most guys that only average 6.7 PPG and 7.2 RPG as a senior don't make it to a second contract, so I don't think the durability problem will be an issue.
