Exum lacks the hops that you'd expect from a guard drafted in high lotto. It'll be a challenge to both Exum and his trainer to keep his hops as he fills out his frame. Yes he'll gain leg strength with additional training, but that will likely compensate for the additional weight on his frame. I do like him, but there are legit questions as to both his eventual position and ceiling, which are interrelated.
I haven't posted in the draft thread. To me, Embiid is hands down the obvious first pick, and Wiggins is the second, though he could become the next Rudy Gay. After that, it is a wide open game between Exum, Parker and Randle, at least until I get a better feel for the latter two (and perhaps others) during tournament play.
