A total of 16 general managers passed on Jared Sullinger on draft day. So it is confusing that when all the GM's were anonymously polled, many of them picked Sully as a sleeper from this draft.
Yet when it was time to answer the survey, 17.2% of GMs pegged Jared Sullinger as the most likely "sleeper" success from this draft class. He got more votes than Andrew Nicholson or Terrence Jones, both drafted ahead of him. It would be nice to imagine that none of the GMs who voted for him were ones who passed on him, but I wouldn’t bet on it. If even one of them is one who passed on Sullinger, it’s fairly telling about how being the general manager of a team can mess you up.
