Oliver to me is one of the key examples of how this draft is one of the deepest in ages.

Eye test is what separates Bradley and Thomas Bryant for me. I think Bradley is just fast enough to survive in a smaller league, while Bryant falls on the wrong side of the spectrum in terms of speed. I could be wrong, though, and whichever one of those two who can best keep weight off and slide his feet on the perimeter is probably the one who will stick.

Agree with the Tony Mitchell comp for Oliver. Mitchell had a ton of talent — he’s just one of those 2nd round picks who slipped through the cracks and never really got a chance. The same thing could definitely happen to Oliver, but I hope he at least gets the opportunity to play consistent minutes on an NBA team before he winds up overseas.
