Bobby Marks: As @Jeff Zillgitt reports ORL 2nd rd pick in 2016, protected 31-55 goes to MIA. The team receiving something must also send something back. The 2nd rd. pick in 2016, protected 31-55 has the same value to monopoly money. MIA will not see that pick unless ORL has a top 5 record.
Considered one of the draft’s three best prospects when he left for China, Mudiay is amused that his stock plummeted mostly because he had become a forgotten man. But he has no regrets about his decision and plans to use the draft night slights as motivation against the six teams that passed on him. “It’s going to stay with me my whole career but I’m not mad at it,” Mudiay said, adding that he will need more than a snub to have success in the NBA. “There’s 30 teams in the NBA, 29 of them, I’ve got to go against. So I got to try to be much prepared as I can and do what I need to do to get my team to be in a great position to win.”
