Not sure, all he said was his bro was on their draft list. He may have been on it after Nystrom.

Of course, no one wants them to bust, but this is a possible insurance when picking a guy who is a long term project. only get the compensation 2nd if he doesn't sign an ELC.

More Mark Hunter quotes:

“I wanted McCarron but I missed on him,” Hunter said. “I was really upset, so upset that I missed him that I couldn’t sleep that night.”


“He’s a power forward with soft hands,” said Mark Hunter, “really soft hands for a big man.”
