How upset should Sullinger feel about not being invited to the NBA Draft?

more fuel to the fire for Sully...he loves to play with a chip on his shoulder...this could help motivate him even know Satch is in his ear telling him a bunch of teams don't think he's good enough, etc. & that he's gonna prove them wrong

If he did get invited he'd be the Aaron Rodgers/Brady Quinn of this draft. Just sitting there until someone picks him in the 20's. What he should be upset about is being devalued to the ~20th pick. He should use that as motivation to continue to get better. Not getting invited to the draft isn't a slight in and of itself; they just want lottery picks and he's not projected to be one. The invitation is just a sympton, not the problem itself.

Honestly, it'll work out a lot better for him in the end. Would you rather go to  contending team or get wasted by the Trailblazers?

If there are no trades and Sullinger falls to at least 14, he is sitting pretty. Since NBA picks are slotted $$$ wise, it may cost him $3-7 million up front, but if he joins a solid organization and gives them 10+ quality years (assuming his back holds up), he'll have all the money he needs by the time he retires.

I don't think he falls into the 20's and there may be a team lurking to trade up if he slips to far.
