    Would be absolutely nuts if Carey came back but Matthew Hurt went pro, but it’s a crazy time.

    Kira Lewis over tre Jones and Dotson is a head scratcher as well. As well as Isaiah Stewart going so highly. Never know though nba draft is always a crap shoot beyond the top 2-3 players and sometimes it’s not even that many.

    Zero chance Carey comes back. He will never be a high pick just because he's a traditional big that can't defend, which is rare in the NBA these days. This draft is weak and his best bet to go as high as possible.

    Stewart is a great defender and far more athletic than Carey

    Anyone who takes him in the lottery should be fired on the spot.

    Assume this means they have someone committing or maybe reclassifying and committing and don't need Tape anymore.

    What team do you run? Who have you drafted.

    He can shoot the 3, rebound, block shots, run the floor and defend. An All American. But we will all listen to your sorry opinion.

    Tape got nervous. Has nothing to do with anything else.

    Hurt is staying, Stanley is gone.

    I hate to see this, but I mean, there’s a reason there wasn’t a thread when he committed. He was a solid player on a 20-loss team.

    Carey is a hell of a college player...but there is no way he goes in the lottery. Not in today’s NBA.

    He can defend another big man but that's about it, teams were killing us by running screens and having Carey switched onto a guard.

    Buzz on Twitter is that Syracuse flipped him because of relationship with coaches.

    He's not going in the lottery because, in the NBA, he's a Caleb Swanigan-esque dinosaur. His archetype severely limits his upside to the point that even a (realistic) best case scenario is marginal rotation player. Great college player, sure, but the gulf between the NBA and NCAA has never been larger.

    Edit: center is by a large margin the deepest position in the NBA, so there's little need to utilize precious resources (money, draft slot, or trade assets) to pick up someone who's not one of the few game changers - KAT, Jokic, Embiid, etc...

    Heard that too, let's be honest he will probably get more time at Syracuse than Duke so I can't blame him.

    Crap numbers in the Ivy League. I wish he would've stayed with Duke. :D

    I don’t get people who think Carey is some sort of dinosaur. Has great hands, quick feet, and shot nearly 40 percent from three with a very small sample size, but always had nice form and was more of an outside sort of guy in high school. ACC freshman of the year, first team all ACC, second team All American... kid was a stud, and wasn’t some lumbering big. He will be just fine in the league.

    There are plenty of great college players that weren't well suited for the NBA. Tyler Hansborough, Adam Morrison, Jimmer Fredette, Hasheem Thabeet, etc. Carey isn't suited for an up and down game and is too dependent on his left hand. He's like a rich man's Kennedy Meeks.

    All that might be true. (The three point shooting is a total unknown. Dude took like 50 total shots). But that still doesn’t make him a lotto pick in today’s league. He’s a high floor, low ceiling kind of guy. At a position that isn’t highly valued these days, unless you can pass like Jokic or shoot like Porzingus.

    All that screams a pick between 20-35.

    True, although he didn't have a chance and Meeks had 4.

    Meeks, National Title. Carey, second to fourth place finish in the ACC regular season. Facts.

    Carey is a fantastic player. I know the big man in the league has a different role but I think he will do well. I'm not sure about being an all star but he won't be a flop IMO.

    This has a "has decided to leave the program on Dec. 15th" vibe written all over it.

    You’re comparing him to 4 year players? Ok. I mean I wish Vern was at Duke for four years, but come on.
