SKUX101- there's a good chance Sun will be droped come next season. I worked with him for the first time 10 days ago and his work ethics is terrible, as far as I'm aware of same has been said from other staff.
I have to admit Lakers is definitely not the best option for Mills because of the potential Mills to turn into a J-Critt. However, from what I been hearing over the last few days he will be picked if he's available. Phil hasn't looked at him yet but Pat's really impressed some of our scouts over here. one of the scout I work with quite extensively said "Mills show great composure, leadership and maturity" etc.
Further more as I said in other thread, if you're in LA, Farmar is not quite in the convo as far as leading PG anymore. a little exclusive for guys on this site; LA's going to be shopping around with Sasha and Farmar.
So how things will potentially turnout? Think about this: Brown/Fisher/Mills. This only broadens LA's depth at PG providing a variety of experience, speed, athleticism and size. While Mills as trade bait will also attract LA to pick him.
With this all said, I've been talking to scouts from 3 teams and Mills have been getting great feedback (one went as far as saying he'll potentially be the next Barbosa) and probably won't be available at 29 anyway.
