    Congrats to Dennis - Best of luck in Big D !!!

    He is the first Pack player picked in the Top 10 since Gugs (#6) in 1992.

    ACC had 10 picks go in the first round, I believe...

    The projected pay slot for the No. 9 overall pick is $2,681,900 in year one of the contract and $3,183,300 in the second year. The team has the option for year 3 at $3,719,700.

    Also, I think Dennis landed in the best possible spot. He likely will start from day one and is part of a solid organization that will right its ship. I was nervous that he would end up with the Nicks.

    Dennis Smith Jr has been so good in Summer League, NC State should re-hire Mark Gottfried and fire him again just to prove a point.

    Wow! What a poignant statement! And what a powerful indictment against Gottfried!

    Everything reported is that Smith dominated the NBA Summer League, and has established himself as a solid NBA player, well worth his lottery selection, and perhaps showing he was a bit of a sleeper pick.
