In Sam Hinkie's best dreams he is flying around on a unicorn with video of potential second round picks on his iPad. Hinkie may not have a unicorn with him* buthe can follow all the second round picks today that his beautiful tanking heart desires. Patterson! Stokes! McRae! Young! Ross! Shabazz! Cory Jefferson!
*But imagine if he did!
True, there are some high end picks playing today, including likely top 3 pick Jabari Parker, but the number of second round picks playing today, especially between 1:00 and 3:00, is enough to make anyone who shares Hinkie's basketball philosophy absolutely giddy.
