Should we take a chance on Yi Jianlian this draft?

Should we take a chance on Yi Jianlian this draft?

Im reading his scouting reports and their really intruguing me. Hes 7 foot and athletic. Hes already been through newell's bigman camp and got high praise. His style of game is being compared to KG.

Unlike other Chinese big men like Yao Ming or Wang Zhizhi, Yi is extremely athletic ... very good body type, long arms and big hands ... hasn't stopped growing yet, is projected to reach 7-2 ... great stamina ... nice ball handler and passer, some say he's able to play all 5 positions ... he has great speed at running the floor, jumps really quick and can dunk 360s ... amazing rebounder, anticipates well ... great defender, excellent shot blocker ... left hander with decent range ... develops more and more low post skills, like a jump hook ... intelligent player, knows how to use his physics ... battled fellow Draft prospect Ha Seung-Jin to a standstill, although Ha has almost three years, three inches and 70 pounds on Yi ... at the age of 15 he literally dominates 18-19 years old players, as he did at the Junior World Championships in Greece ... if you think of how good he'll be by the time he enters the NBA Draft (likely 2006 or later), it's hard to image he'd be something other than the first pick overall

I give the kid a camp invite. If we sign him I would then immediately send him to the NBDL.
Strikemode14 is the greatest.

He'll probably be gone by our pick, but I wouldn't want him anyway. We need someone who can give us a contribution immediately, not another kid for Phil to babysit.
