I wouldn't call Cam a bust, you can't be a bust at #10.
Its more like if you are selected top 5 and you are not even a starter or playing in China only after a few years, that is a bust.
I think for Cam to be a bust he'd have to play pretty bad nba defence, shoot like 25% from three, high turnovers, not much inside scoring. Something like that. Not even close to nba rotational level...I think that would qualify him as a bust, maybe even a huge bust. He's still in the top10, sometimes there's not a huge difference in expectation between slot 5 and slot 10 in a draft, and in fact 10 might be ranked higher by most scouts etc.
If they are too stubborn to put him in the G-league the pressure even going 10 could prove to be to much for him with typical expectations of players taken then esp if they throw him out there game 1 and he stinks it up . I would think keep him on the bench for the first 10-15 games with ltd use if any in g league and call it due to recovery from offseason core muscle repair recovery etc. then if he proves to be making solid strides in the system down there and at some point dominates in the g-league throw him into the rotation for the Hawks a couple games against bad defenses to get his confidence up and then let him ride out the year swapping between 3rd string minutes and wearing a suit and see if that motivates him to start working harder instead of living off of hype. he has to earn his minutes is all I'm saying or he will never become very good in the NBA
