"smart decisions" is being confused with overly "safe" decisions that continue mediocrity.
That's what the Sixers did.
Normally, I like a Dileo lead draft in the late lottery or in the middle of the 1st round. But the past two drafts now, there was an unusual amount of depth in the 2nd half of the 1st round, and instead the Sixers drafted the same type of prospects they would have in years past in weaker drafts.
With the exception of the fact that Harkless can at least defend and has good size for SF, there was nothing smart about these decisions. The decisions made in this draft define the mediocrity of this franchise. This was worse than the decision to draft Vooch....by a mile.
