Kevin Martin has some pretty massive potential of course, and pretty much everyone else is a crapshoot. I actually think Lin will be decent, but his actual value dependson how high he's getting drafted. I;d agree that he'll probably be over-drafted, especially in public leagues.
I think Lin puts up top 75 value myself. He's on a rebuilding team that has few scoring options and nobody to push him at the point. As long as you take him in the 6th round or later, you'll be happy.
I like Asik for cheap boards and blocks, and I actually think they phase Martin out in favor of Jeremy Lamb sooner rather than later. You want a deep sleeper: Patrick Patterson. He's the favorite to be the starting PF.
Anyways, my busts:
Pau Gasol: With Howard and Nash in town, somebody has to take a backseat offensively, and it will be him
Paul Millsap: Too many bigs in Utah need playing time, so unless he can handle a lot of minutes at SF, his usage goes down
John Wall: People are taking him in the first 40 picks, and it's just too high.
Ersan IIyasova: Yes, he posted top 50 value last year. If he was going in the late middle of the draft, no problem. But before round 6? You have more faith in Scott Skiles and his rotations than I do.
Goran Dragic: He will be solid, but let him prove it before drafting him in the 3rd or 4th round.
Ryan Anderson: Do the Hornets see him the same way Orlando did and will use him accordingly?
