Holy shit. Good for Mike. Such a good dude.
Never thought this was his ultimate goal.
An interesting choice, he is very plugged into the scouting scene. Don’t know enough about his player evaluations to make a definitive assessment. A great story though as DraftExpress started out as just few people and now he has made it to AGM.
Massive hire and a terrific one.
No one in media knows more about the international market than him. Good shit.
Btw he’s a big dyson daniels guy wink wink. Been calling him a top 10 guy longer than anyone.
Could this be a precursor to Dame being traded to the Kings for the 4th pick, Fox, Moe and a future first and then us moving Fox and the future first to the Thunder for 12 and 30?
Go all in on the draft after picking up the draft expert?
I'm just kidding. It does give me a lot of confidence in how our F.O. will value our pick now and whatever picks we might make in this draft.
Edit: Maybe what got Schmitz the job was saying that we didn't have to fuck with Grant because if we trade back to 13 and 15 we can get two guys that will be better than Grant in Dame's window. Then we could actually have the cap space to go after Ayton in a complicated double sign and trade with Nurk.
"Hi, we plan on trading all of our picks for the next 5 years but we're wondering if you'd like to be our scout?"
The other big advantage in the short term is going to be how plugged in he is about what player each team likes.
no. stop it.
I've always been very high on Schmitz!
Keegan Murray too.
Been following Mike since his start at DX and he definitely seem to favor the low key personality guys.
He was big Ingram guy. Liked him ahead of Simmons.
He has always come off as really sharp.
Make sense for him to move to the team side. That's where he started out and I'm sure it's not nearly as fulfilling working for clicks rather than affecting the future of a team/franchise
competent front office is everything, if you have one, good things will happen
mike schmitz is appreciated in his job, so this is a good move
If you guys missed this from yesterday
I also remember him being super high on Dragan Bender. Some hits some misses for sure
Well, we know who the leader in the clubhouse for the 7th pick is now - if he has significant input.
Dyson Daniels and it’s not even close.
Just read the article he put out today…
best prospects outside the top 4 likely to “boom”
