Paul Millsap (2006)
For better or for worse, NBA scouts are far more enamored with the player you become, versus the player you show you are. That’s why guys like Paul Millsap end up falling to midway into the second round of the NBA Draft, as was the case in 2006.
Not only was Millsap taken after a slew of guys you’ve never heard of, but two players who never played a minute of real NBA basketball were taken before Millsap.
Millsap was a solid player for the Utah Jazz (who drafted him originally), but his career really took off after he joined Atlanta in 2013; he made the All-Star team in each of his four seasons there.
