This is very unfortunate for him personally, but could be huge news for the Bobcats. Like DeJuan Blair, Sullinger has been red-flagged by doctors due to a bulging disk that "may cut his career short." I believe this comes from one leg being shorter than the other.
Teams may not take a chance of guaranteed money on him, and he could fall out of the first round just like Blair did. With the first pick of the second round, I'd take him in a heart beat! That would be good value in my mind.
