Reason for Exum dropping since Oct: Jabari (Ford#4/DX#7) and Embiid (Ford#7/DX#6) weren't top-three guys coming into season. Helped stock.
Funny part about everyone souring on the US college prospects is that Exum has actually fallen 1-2 spots in Ford/DX drafts since last fall.
People talk about #1 picks rarely winning titles, but reality is that NO ONE from last 10 drafts has been the best player on a title team.
I don't think Jabari is guaranteed to be Melo by any means, but curious how people perceive Melo vs. uncertain outcomes for Wiggins/Embiid.
Indulge me: if you knew Jabari was going to put up Carmelo numbers for the next decade, would anyone NOT take him #1?

Marquette U. standout Jamil Wilson has signed with Relativity Sports. Wilson is considered a 2nd round pick.
Nobody I have talked to can ever recall a pro sports team announcing a suspension in a box score like Bucks did.
Good to see Jeff Adrien was genuinely upset last night after Bucks lost to Pacers subs. Shows he cares despite team's awful record.
“..Good people going great places…It don’t happen overnight it take patience. Nothing is the same life stay changing…“
Bucks announce Sanders will start suspension in a box score. I kid you not.
If I'm Blake and Perk is guarding me 20 feet from the hoop, "20-foot fadeaway" is probably not my desired outcome.
Pacers defeat Bucks B Team missing Larry Sanders, Ersan Ilyasova, O.J. Mayo, Nate Wolters, Drew Gooden, Mirsad Turkcan, Ricky Pierce, etc.
I'm going to be really controversial and say Frank Vogel's system is probably a little better than Larry Drew's.
The Bucks best shotblocker - John Henson - isn't on floor for Pacers winning basket.
Copeland took ball against smaller Sessions and drove for winning bucket with 1.2 left. Pacers win their gamble, 104-102, and head to Miami.
If not for replay, the zebras would have blown yet another call.
Pacers clearly going to Turner there.
Wright and Giannis in for final possession. Butler calls a timeout when he can't get ball inbounds. Wright shadowing Turner.
Middleton calmly drains all 3 and we have a tie at 102. Pacers timeout with 4.9 left.
Middleton fouled on what is being called a 2-point attempt but referees are reviewing it. Now reversed and he will get 3 FTs.
Mark Lindsay makes 2 highly questionable calls down stretch. Gotta love NBA officiating.
Sloan misses 2 FTs and Mahinmi rebounds.
Looks like Indy subs will prevail, leading 101-97 after 2 Butler FTs with 21.3 left. Bucks final timeout.
Turner takes pass and blows past Wright for quick basket. Gives Pacers 2-for-1. Indy leads 99-97 and Bucks timeout with 32.2 left.
One of the few bright spots in a gloomy season for the Bucks: Brandon Knight.
Knight ties game at 97 on long 2-pointer with 36.9 left.
Knight missed on break on contested shot and Mahinmi fouled by Adrien on dunk try with 1:52 left. Bucks up 95-94.
Big 3 by Sessions brings Bucks within 90-89.
Bucks have made 11 more FTS than Pacers and still trail by 5 with 5:41 left. That kind of season.
Spare me, Bango. The T-shirt cannon again.
The Greek Freak has a lot to work on this summer and I mean a lot. Has shown little, if any progress.
Chris Wright, yes, Chris Wright taking charge for Bucks.
Bucks have started fourth quarter on 5-0 run to tie score at 72.
First priority of new Bucks ownership: convince Bango to buck retirement plans. Hear he's Tennessee bound.
Every time Wright dunks, Vogel calls a timeout.
Adrien has a career-best 15 rebounds through 3 quarters.
Layup by Knight brings Bucks within 72-67 after three quarters. Scola with 20 for Pacers; Knight 15 and Pachulia 13 for Bucks.
Gorgeous lob from Knight to Wright for big dunk. Wakes up drowsy crowd. Bucks trail 70-63 and Vogel calls a timeout.
What did veteran official Dick Bavetta do to have to work Bucks-Pacers game?
Bucks starters 44, Pacers starters 0. But the Indy "sub-starters" have 38, Scola with 16 and Turner 14.
With $44m extension kicking in July 1, Larry Sanders would have lost $500k MORE in forfeited salary if he served suspension next season.
Jeff Adrien has 10 rebounds before halftime. His career high is 13.
Sanders was on active list tonight and inactives were Delfino and Wolters.
First priority of new Bucks ownership: convince to buck retirement plans.
This is significant because it means Sanders will not have to serve the suspension at the start of next season. Five games left for Bucks.
Confirmation: Larry Sanders' suspension started tonight and he is not with team. He is under 5-game suspension for marijuana use.
Do u think David Stern would have gave his blessing to Pacers sitting all 5 starters? No way.
Vogel playing his subs makes this a more even fight, at least so far. Bucks lead 20-19 with 4:03 left in first.
Ersan Ilyasova has seen 2 doctors in recent weeks about ailing ankles. Neither recommended surgery.
Thank you all for participating! I have to go To The game and I cant tweet anymore! Hope to answer the questions chosen by tomorrow!
Gracias a todos por participar! Tengo que entrar a la cancha y ya no podré twittear! Esperó responder las preguntas elegidas para mañana!!!
Fun fact: if the Bucks tried to rest their starters, they'd probably be playing 4-on-5.

Hinkie: "Turner for nothing if you promise to sit your starters against the Bucks in April? DEAL."
Pacers starters resting up for Friday matchup in Miami. Indy is one-half game behind Heat for top seed in East.
Team USA will play Brazil at U.C. in Chi on Aug. 16th on way to Basketball’s World Cup in Spain.
“..All I ever asked for was patience …“
Common Ground ultimatum seems pretty arbitrary given arena ask is a complete unknown at this pt. But whatever--they just want in on convo.
From arena perspective, the upside of Common Ground is that at end of the day they'd presumably settle for waaaaay less than $150-250m.
My naive hope: Common Ground and arena issue can somehow be more popular together than apart.
