Kevin O'Connor If there was ever a GM who would still draft a player without an official workout or interview, it would be Sam Hinkie. This is a guy who literally drafted according to upside and/or value. He never cared about team needs or fit when drafting. Hinkie drafted Embiid and Okafor when he already had Noel on the roster. All he wanted was a hoard of assets, even if they were all big men. He would keep the superstars and then trade away the players who weren’t quite as good but still had league wide appeal.
