Does a great job of getting his hand in passing lanes
Incredible basketball IQ
Lacks ideal athleticism for an NBA two guard
Played entirely in a 2-3 zone so doesn't have much man-to-man experience on defense
Summary: Known primarily as a three-point assassin during his career at Syracuse, Rautins developed into a solid all-around player which makes him an interesting prospect. A team that is need of an intelligent sharpshooter might take a chance on him in the second round. His lack of ideal athleticism limits his potential effectiveness at the next level but I still think he could be a valuable bench player for some team.
Player Comparison: Anthony Parker. Parker has made a living in the NBA due to his three-point shooting and defensive abilities which have allowed him to be a valuable role player. Rautins will need to be a similar player if he has any hopes of playing in the NBA. Parker actually spent a few years overseas before returning to the NBA which might be a path Rautins will also have to take.
@Observer = He bets every day on all the sports, you can not compare yourself to him, he may not take big risk, not at all but he bets every day and has fun, do not knock that, risk or not he is allways in play.
This is the first draft that I actually have taken time scouting and looking into the players and teams. But again, it is still really early and a lot more scouting and more things need to happen in the process in order to get me a basis to go on. In this particular mock I predicted the picks based on where I think the SHOULD go not what I think they WILL Do. I will do drafts like those but not in this one.
