Ike Diogu playing well here at D-League Showcase. League sources say he could draw interest from Lakers, Clippers, Hornets and Thunder.

I guess D'Antoni might want another stretch 4. Diogu can hit 3's now.

Lakers have success with a lot of 1st round bust. There's Shannon, Earl Clark, Kendall Marshall, Wesley Johnson, Xavier Henry and Jordan Hill. Let's sign Tyrus Thomas, Al Thornton, Jonny Flynn, Terrence Williams, Julian Wright, Yi Jianlian, Joe Alexander, Fab Melo, Acie Law, Dominque Jones, Julius Hodge, Royce White, Shelden Williams, Joey Graham or Sean Williams.

Man, Ike was an absolute beast at ASU. Deadlyfrom midrange and maybe the best post player under 7'0" I've ever seen. Double, triple teams down low couldn't stop him. Another case of a players' talents misused or under utilized in the pros. Reminded me a bit of Adrian Dantley and Mark Aguirre. I really wanted him in purple and gold coming out of the draft. It's such a crapshoot for some players coming into the pros. If they're put into a system that doesn't take advantage of their strengths, they wallow on teams' benches and start to be known as busts.

I always heard so much hype over Terrance Williams, everytime he went to a new team, the fan base would be so excited about his "potential" wasn't he suppose to be in the mold of a Tmac with more passing skills or something?
