I've said I don't think much of the job Carroll Dawson and Rudy Tomjanovich have done in talent acquisition over the last few (non-playoff) years. Aside from Cuttino Mobley, Steve Francis, and Yao Ming (yeah yeah, my doubts about that one were WRONG), talent acquisition has been a bust (including Eddie Griffin, who hasn't contributed much).
Apparently Jeff Van Gundy feels the same way, as his Rockets won't be pursuing the team's last two second-round draft picks (now free agents). Second-round picks need to contribute SOMETHING to the team. These guys didn't, and that happened all too often with players Rudy T/Carroll Dawson acquired/drafted over the past few years.
