I think literally every draft expert had Nesmith ranked higher then Joe, Nesmith was projected as a top 15 pick in the vast majority of professional mocks. I don't get the hate, I can understand some uncertainity, he got injured and put up points vs bad competition but the hate is unfounded if he averaged waht he did between his 2 years he is a 42% 3 point shooter, that is pretty good. He is long, athletic and a gym rat.
I think he got way overdrafted because he had a hot 14 game stretch shooting is all. He is a blackhole offensively and doesn't look like anything special defensively. He's long, but does he do anything defensively? Not really seeing it. I just think it's terrible value from these picks to end up with Nesmith and Pritchard.
I watched probably 2 hours of tape on him, he is really good, its not just the 52% make it 39% and he is still really valuable the way he constantly moves, it opens things up for everyone else on the floor. I really see him being a buddy Hield type with better D and that is not his Ceiling.
