Tyler Ulis – Late Second Round
When the Suns took Ulis early in the second round two years ago, they were hoping he’d turn into a great scorer and passer similar to Isaiah Thomas. Unfortunately, he hasn’t found much success so far. And at only 5-10, 150 pounds, he’s an automatic minus on defense. He’s only 22 and very skilled, so he could still catch on with a team that wants to see what he can do. But anything earlier than a late second rounder would be expecting too much.
Davon Reed – Late Second Round
Reed may have been an early second rounder last season, but he was a disappointment his rookie year. He didn’t play much, and he didn’t impress when he did. The fact so many good players went after him only makes it worse, and will only encourage other teams to be stingier with their second rounders. Reed is still young and on a cheap contract, so it’s reasonable to think another team could give him a shot.
Shaquille Harrison – Late Second Round
Harrison will play next season at 25, old for a guy only playing in his second season. He went undrafted, but he showed enough in the time he got last season for a team to tame a shot on him. While he did little in terms of scoring, he proved himself to be an able defender, posting a Defensive Box Plus-Minus of 0.9, a Steal Percentage of 3.2, and a Block Percentage of 1.5. He’s on a team friendly deal, and he could play a bench role on a team that wants to take a chance on him.
