It’s a factor for sure, but not enough to move him out of the top 10.

He’s definitely gonna go top-10, but the rookie scale goes down about $300–$500,000 per pick. That’s a lot of money going from 1 to 4.

Fact is — he’s probably going to be at least a serviceable pro, and since average NBA starters are making in the 8–10 million range, I think he’ll be fine.

Still, his father is costing him. And, yeah, if things are equal, I would factor it in. It’s a small team — you don’t need that constant distraction.
