I put no stock in those reports at all. Even if it is true he isn't performing well, it might very well be intentional. Players have been doing that forever if they don't want to go someplace.Blowing the top 4 teams interviews could cost him $20M+ on his rookie contract. This contract might be the biggest contract he signs during his career so blowing up interviews might be a dumb strategy unles he thinks a specific team will help him develop into an all star
eh. If he ends up in NY (or Chicago) he will make significantly more than that in endorsements, merch, etc. I'd try to get to Chicago if I was him (or any of the top players). That seems like the best landing spot near the top of the draft. Golden State is obviously a winning franchise, but they easily could trade the pick and playing time is going to be far more limited, especially for a guard/wing. Tough spot for a rookie to land, especially when so much is tied to performance, playing time, etc.
