What the Experts Say:
Carl Berman, Basketball Times & NetScouts Basketball
"Mike Dunigan has the strength and body type to eventually play in the NBA but must improve his conditioning, post up more strongly and develop a consistent 12-15 foot shot to have a chance."

Current contract and team:
Hapoel Jerusalem (Israel)

Chris Denker and Carl Berman are Managing Partners of NetScouts Basketball, "The International Basketball Connection."
