None of the three can be considered an outright bust, but they certainly haven't lived up to the expectations of such high draft selections.
"I brought as much luck as I could bring", Pitman said, per Weitzman. The holes that need to be filled are very clear, and with the No. 1 pick, there's a lot of ways to go about filling them. The GM says NY is 'in talent acquisition mode.' "We've got to get the highest level of talent that we can get on our roster and we'll figure out all of the positions once they get in there", he said on Alan Hahn's "Hahn Solo" radio show on ESPN 98.7 FM.
For me, it makes the most sense to draft a big with the No.1 pick, whether that's Ayton or Marvin Bagley.
The bottom line is that the Mavericks, picking fifth, will have to be prepared to go with other options, most likely.
For one, the Suns pegged Igor Kokoskov as the team's new head coach.

Tusk said that while there were low expectations regarding Iran, there were high expectations regarding Washington. Bulgaria's prime minister recently warned Russian Federation and China will otherwise gain toeholds in the region.
The 76ers retained their pick for this season as it fell to No 10 overall, if it had gone between No 2 and No 5 the selection would have gone to the Celtics by way of last summer's trade.
The 19-year-old possesses all the skills needed to be a dominant basketball player. "They are also both better used at the 4, while Ayton is likely a true center at the next level". Unfortunately for the Grizzlies, they will pick at number four, the final disappointment of a season that saw them lose 60 games.
Doncic was a key player in Slovenia's impressive run to the European Championship gold medal last September and this weekend he will be in the spotlight as Real Madrid aim to win a record 10th title in the Euroleague, the continent's top club competition.
If the player that is eventually picked turns out to be a bust, then of course it matters. Redick comes to mind. But he reiterates that the club is looking to take the best player available, regardless of position. He's a vocal leader, and he's going to score. He creates his own shots and is the kind of player that you don't have to fit into a certain system to see him succeed.
In addition to all the draft talk, I also went in depth on Sindarius Thonrwell's rookie campaign. Not only did they deserve it as redemption for being the most unlucky lottery team of all time, they deserved it for losing the "correct" way in February and March. Instead, he is the kind of player that can easily integrate his game into any system he is placed in, which may make him a more ideal choice for Phoenix. The last time the purple and white had a pick this high was back in the 1991 draft when they had the third overall pick. "We targeted a three-year rebuilding window and I know it's been a little bit controversial in some ways". We can't predict what exactly the Suns have planned, but what they do at the draft should give us all a really good idea of what's to come.
