    I'd certainly take him in the 2nd round.

    FWIW, he would be worth taking at #26. Back and all. Hope he falls.

    I'll take him on the first round, I know you are mentioning Blair but the same thing happened to Dandre Jordan few years ago.

    I hate hearing about stuff like this, especially for the players. We really need some athleticism at the 4/5, but Sullinger would be tough to pass up at 26 even without complementing Roy or David.

    at the 26th pick....I wouldn't pass on him unless someone huge falls as well.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Definitely worth the gamble at 26 if he miraculously falls that low.

    If he falls to #26, I scoop him up and don't look back.

    I do not think Blair was going to go that low though, not as low as Sullinger, but I doubt Sullinger drops that much, he still knows how to ball...
    Why so SERIOUS

    I think an ideal scenario is for him to fall to 26.

    Yes please.

    "Multiple league sources"= Teams picking late in the first round hoping he'll drop to them.

    I would absolutely buy another pick to grab Sullinger in the late first/early second round, and then draft someone else... That would be an epic draft night... And especially if we did something with Collison to get another pick.

    What a steal that would be at #26.

    More likely a team in the lottery needing him to drop a place or two...

    If he free fall drops and if he's okay... look out, he'll have something to prove every second he's on the floor.

    You'd figure between either him or Hansbrough, one of them could become the scoring big off the bench we need.

    The dude is already a winner. If he has a chip on his shoulder and can stay healthy, he'll be lethal. He'll never wow anyone with athleticism, but he can do everything else. I loved watching him play at OSU and I'll love watching him play in the NBA. It'll be even better if he is a Pacer somehow.

    Poor Sullinger. Did he have back spasms last year, or is this a new thing? He might've been top 5 last year.

    That said, I doubt he drops out of the first.
    Has that ever happened, no character issues, no major current injury, drops 20+ spots? Granger didn't drop that much, nor did Blair. I can't think of anyone. I'd bet he's still early 20s.

    Depending on where he lands, this could reshape GMs plans come draft night. If he slips to the 20's it could have teams scrambling to make last second changes to their plans, which could work in favor for the Pacers.

    I had him very possibly slipping out of the lottery already due to how poorly he performed in the athletic tests. Throw in this news, and I think him slipping into the 20's is a very realistic scenario. I have little doubt that Royce White has leapfrogged him, the same way Hansbrough leapfrogged Blair, and maybe a few of the other first-round-prospect bigs, too.

    He missed two games early last season due to it.

    Severe back spasms at 19... that'll drive GM's away in droves.

    Could this also make our 26th pick more coveted to a GM who really likes Sullinger and wants to take a gamble on his back problems?

    Based on the article, it appears his condition can be treated unlike Blair's. I don't see him dropping past 25.

    More like Danny Granger 2.0 only falling about 10 picks.

    This info is a criminal offense to leak I just find it sad that teams will leak this pretty sad. A team picking 14th-20th is just trying to make him slide by putting the info in other teams minds that cleared him.

    i meant the season before this one. those December spasms were mentioned in the original link too, I assume that's why he's getting tested so much right now.
    But I was wondering about last season. If this is a new thing that he didn't have when he pulled out of last year's draft, it's just such a bummer.

    The dude is a baller...no way he drops to 26 though. Thats what, 16 spots lower than projected?

    However, stranger things have happened. I could see him going down to 20-22 or so. His offensive game is going to translate well, his touch around the rim will certainly be an asset. What I wouldn't give for Tyler to have Sullingers game around the basket, in addition to T's 110% motor.
