I dont think Casey would like him, and if we picked him I'd be super pissed.
TBH, I'd be very, very surprised if Rivers didn't turn out to be a good player. His dad was an NBA player AND coach.... He grew up around the game.... Those things alone bode well for his transition from college into the pros.

Not saying that he'll come in and set the world on fire but a lot of people had similar reservations about Steph Curry. Jus' sayin'.
