I do think Nurk can return top 30 value depending on your league.  But to me, that's his ceiling while his floor is still limited by foul rate and injury concerns imo.  I don't typically use top 3 round picks on guys based on their perceived ceiling

I really thought that 3rd round is OK. I also usually draft players based on their floor. Just the problem is that I didn't find 30 better players than him...

We all drafted Bubble Nurk and instead got Bubblebutt Nurk.  Lets use this forum as a support network.    Group hugs for all

Nothing on pornhub either. I'll keep monitoring...

There are roughly only 3 names I trust myself for not botching for getting in the 3rd round and Nurk is definitely one of those names. Only other person who I'd consider over Nurk is SGA but that's an even riskier pick by most people's standards.

What Johnnyapplebot said. There's no way you're getting him past the 3rd round now. You'd literally need guys like MPJ, Lonzo Ball, Christian Wood, and others to be taken in rounds 2-3 for Nurk to fall in the late 3rd and onwards. And if you're in a league like that, you're basically running away with the trophy barring injuries.

Yup basically if you ending up with like pick 8 in first round either you reach in early second or make peace that he won’t fall to you for your third pick.

I wish I was making this up but I've been on multiple drafts throughout the week (2 just now) where he either goes in the 2nd or 3rd.
If you're seeing something else where he's taken 4th-5th in mock drafts, I just wish my league will have as many brain farts
on draft night for Nurkic. 😆

For those playing auction what has his price looked like in your drafts/mocks? My default Yahoo Pre-draft rankings still have him at $4.. Obviously I would expect people to bid higher but if he's left until late in the auction a lot of money will be used up.

Did a real draft in auction where I got Nurkic for $12 (9 cat league). This was on ESPN (we play on Yahoo but we couldnt set our draft for anything earlier than Dec 8 for some reason), so I think the "projected value" or whatever is different between ESPN and Yahoo. Which definitely factors in to people's decisions, even if it's just a little. 

In a mock I did on Yahoo a couple days ago, Nurkic went for $26

He pretty clearly has a 2nd round ceiling and 4th round floor, so he's obviously going in the 3rd. extra bump to late 2nd for some GMs because he's a shot blocking big that doesn't kill FTs.

If he's going beyond the 3rd, it's all auto-drafters.

Got him early 4th in a draft last night. Happy days 

Wow that's a steal. I haven't seen him drop below round 3 in any mock draft I've done in the past week or so 

Can't wait to see the Bosnian Beast unleashed

Tag on Yahoo says personal - so hopefully nothing much to worry about.

 

He just returned from Bosnia...he was there for some family business.....since hes flying back through Europe he has to pass Covid protocol before he can join the team...so nothing to worry about.

He's a 2nd rounder. He has upside, which is very rare at that level of drafts.

Without Whiteside, on a team which is configured just right for him. His bubble stats are a window into what's to come.

He's absolutely not a 2nd rounder. The dude averages 6.7 fouls per 100 possessions for his career (and he was worse in the bubble). That would have ranked tied for 8th worst in the NBA last year.  Only 1 player in the bottom 50 played more than 30 minutes per game. No bueno. No upside.

Nurkic played like a first rounder last season albeit in 9 games and played 32.6 minutes. It was so unexpected cause of the fact that he was out all year long. That alone shows you the upside he has. The season before that he finished 37th in 72 games in just 27 minutes per game. Hes clearly a third rounder with upside, maybe not first rounder upside because of the small sample size in the bubble but an upside maybe to finish top 20.

Reaching for Nurk in the 2nd is probably one of the worst things you can do in fantasy.

Hell, taking him anywhere in the top 35 is probably as bad.

Its so bad i I would prefer to autodraft the first 5 rounds instead of that.

I'm seeing him go ahead of Drummond and Gobert consistently. He's great and will have a top 40 season, but I'm not taking him ahead of those two bigs. 

Embiid, Vucevic, Ayton, Drummond, Gobert, Collins, Sabonis.. all easily ahead of Nurk.

did someone say he gonna reach for nurk in the second here? im bullish on nurkic but you can easily get him in the 30s. if you want to reach for a big in early second, it has to be ayton and maybe bam cause of their rankings. Nurk is my fave 3rd round pick, wouldnt reach in the second though.

Why

Snatch obv took it too far with hot take #3 but the first two are valid. 8 games is a tiny-a** sample size for the presumed output of my 2nd or 3rd pick, especially when durability and foul trouble are additional concerns.
