Depends who you are getting those second picks from and where they fall! Getting a second pick from somebody like the Lakers, Bucks or Boston isn’t much as they would be at the bottom of the second round (unless it’s a second rounder they acquired from a lesser team)Boobie won a playoff game as a rookie to send us to the finals for the first time. C'mon this is stupid. Nobody expects to get a starter from a 2nd. Where was Varejao drafted? Top 10?
Starters are rare from the 2nd round, but there are productive players to be had. Delly wasn't even drafted.
KPJ was "drafted" with 2nd round picks. They are lottery tickets and a way to look for roleplayers/bench guys specifically.
Lottery picks are lasers focusing on specific talent. 2nd rounders are wide nets trolling for talent. If they were worthless they wouldn't be used in trades all the time and GMs wouldn't ask for them.
