Why is Reggie Bullock ranked so low? 

Post#1 » by Fischella » Fri May 17, 2013 5:49 pm

I mean, I think he would be for sure one of the top15 players out of this class when it's all said and done, but guys like Erick Green, Ennis, Snell, Caldwell-Pope, Crabbe, Hardaway Jr., Franklin... get ranked ahead of him...

It makes no sense for me, would you prefer to have a solid great role player that can hit any shot, defend, rebound, play some pick&roll, can play both swingman positions, I mean... look at what happened with Danny Green, look at Wes Matthews, look at Afflalo...

NBA GMs dont learn at all, do they?

I don't think Bullock is going to be really worse than Oladipo for example, he's not that athletic, but he's way underrated and he has ahigh motor an great character like Victor does, and he can shoot the ball way better at the same age.

If Cleveland takes a big man with their first pick, I would think he'd be in play for them at 19. I also think he really helped his cause by measuring out at 6'7" in shoes.
Well at least we're not Detroit!

I love Bullock, I'm sure teams like him but this is just a league where FO's would prefer to swing for the fences instead of taking a guaranteed double.

He is a good 3/D guy with the potential to be even more.

I would love for the Rockets to take Bullock somehow.

He is/was UNC's best prospect this season.

I think the top group of swing men is...
Otto Porter
Victor Oladipo
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
Ben McLemore
Archie Goodwin

After that there is a bunch of guys that project is role-players. Bullock is right there with that crew. I think you could make a reasonable argument that he's #6.

Mmmm I would go...

McLemore
Muhammad
Porter
Oladipo

As the top4, and then a groupe of guys at the same level.

I don't really see Pope as a better prospect than Bullock for example.

The guy that doesn't make sense is allen crabbe on mock drafts but he is lottery bound most likely now
