New, 25 comments

NBA Mock Draft Pick #5 -- Victor Oladipo, Guard, Indiana

SB Nation's Suns blog Bright Side of the Sun explains the pick:

Suns take Victor Oladipo #5.

Victor Oladipo is one of the few players in the Draft who should be a starting player from day one. If he develops consistency in his shot at the NBA level, including the NBA 3-pointer, Oladipo could even be an All-Star. He has the potential to be a game-changer on the defensive end and in transition with Goran Dragic. The Suns also considered Anthony Bennett and C.J. McCollum, but Oladipo was the runaway choice once he dropped to 5th.
