Anyone else think this guy could be a sleeper in this draft? I think we could trade up to the mid first round and snag him. Hornets at 15 and the Bulls at 16 would both be picks at about the right level.
I am really loving this guy. He reminds me a bit of Chris Bosh except with more strength. I would like to see some clips of him playing some defense, but, as it stands now, if we can grab that 16th pick and be lucky enough to have the oppurtunity to pick him, that would be great. Can always use athletic big men.
Yeah, he was once a sleeper but now he's been discovered. Uber-athletic big man with some polish to his offensive game and decent touch as well. He also possesses a good NBA body as well. Honestly, I have been watching some FSU games this season and he impressed me somewhat with his athleticism and offensive abilities--he really stepped it up towards the end of the season because he's really been underachieving most of his FSU career. However, now he's in the radar and scouts are absolutely in love with him--I'd expect a top 20 pick for him, 25th at the latest.
this would be a good pick for us at 26th because hes 23 years old and ready to step in immediately for us at pf. with the scouting reports ive seen, hes the kind of pf that the lakers need: all-around (good overall scorer and shooter, athletic, quick, strong, shotblocker, rebounder). he'll be avaliable at 26 for us because most mock drafts have him in the 2nd round. most teams need centers or pgs.
