Someone else will grab him before then. IMO, he’s got lotto talent and the only reason why he’s not there is because he didn’t take the traditional route to get to the league.
I think teams will soon start to realize that prioritizing players from the NCAA over players who take non-traditional routes despite being of similar skill sets is foolish.

there HAS to be some prejudice about what Bailey did. I'm looking at a kid with some smooth handle at 6'9 and ridiculous length. There is no way in hell he should be around when the Nets pick.
Bazley is this year's Mitchell Robinson. Going to be penalized for not having college tape but he has some fantastic potential. I'm really hoping we get him - Samanic at 27 and Bazley at 31 would be a great draft, IMO.
IMO because teams missed out on Mitchell Robinson, they will overcorrect and jump early to get this guy.
It wouldn't surprise me in the least to see some team draft him towards the end of the lottery.
And since we know about him and can see the obvious talent, I'm pretty sure GMs of other teams see him too. Given Marks track record with drafting, I could totally see another team just monitoring who were interested in and pick the player we want ahead of us. Obviously, teams can't replicate our development program, but they may believe that the draftee has enough will and determination to become great on their own even without having our comprehensive system of development at their disposal.
