Dickinson does not have the athleticism to make the league.
I would have possibly agreed, until I watched Frank Kaminski play the last few games for Phoenix. If Frank can play 15 min a game, avg 6pts and 4 RBs, and earn $2.7M per year, then there is a real possibility for others like Dickinson to make it. I mean, the guy (Kaminsky) signed a 2yr deal for $10M in 2019 after having a year where he averaged 8.6pts and 3.5 rbs. His best couple years he avgd. 11pts and 4 rb's in Charlotte. Hes been in the league 6 years now, without a G league.

The big difference - Dickinsons 3pt shooting percentage = 0%

FK shoots 36%, I'll give you that, but he attempts less than 2 per game and less than 1 per game this year. Hardly a multi million dollar difference. Just my opinion folks.

“Upon gathering feedback on Dickinson’s decision to enter the NBA Draft, scouts said to “expect Dickinson back in Ann Arbor next season.” His draft stock at this point projects as a second-rounder but scouts told 247Sports that if he came back and continued to show his improved mobility and a more developed face-up game to couple with his very consistent post presence then he has a chance at solidifying a contract in the first round next year.”

Dickinson hits about 75% of his free throws. Has a good chance to develop a reliable spot up game. May never be a star, but has a good chance at a respectable NBA career down the road. I’d love to see him go… he is going to be a real problem for the rest of the B1G.

We'll have so many players able to hit 3's next year that most of our points may come off 3-pointers, so any bigs in the middle may very well be irrelevant.

I certainly hope so. Last season the best teams in the league had dominant centers. I’ll be glad to gulp down a serving of your Orange Kool Aid!
Except Ohio State.

Considering we were at the top of the league and had the best center in the league, I think this is unlikely. I do think Payne will be very serviceable tho.

Yes, but they had one of the best 4’s in the league playing the 5 for them.

Latest mock draft from 6 hours ago has Kofi at #36 to OKC.

I mean "legit source" can be up for debate, but a look (albeit very quick) at the 2019 draft seems to show they have the players that were expected to be drafted correct. Though positioning after the first 10 or so was more miss than hit.
They are all debatable of course. It is worth noting however, this is an outlier at this point in time. I hope it is accurate because I want Kofi to do well and it’s clearly where he wants to be.
