      If the Bulls trade for someone, it sure in hell won't be Beasley. I doubt Thibs would even want him anyway, since he probably wouldn't listen to him.


      • My first big board...not much of a follower of the draft but I'll probably make a final mock draft during my NFL Draft withdrawal period:

        BIG BOARD

        1. PG Kyrie Irving, Duke

        2. SF Derrick Williams, Arizona

        3. C Enes Kanter, Turkey

        4. PG Brandon Knight, Kentucky

        5. PF Donatas Motiejunas, Lithuania

        6. PF Jan Vesely, Czech Republic

        7. PF Bismack Biyombo, Spain

        8. PF Tristan Thompson, Texas

        9. PG Kemba Walker, Connecticut

        10. SF Chris Singleton, Florida St.

        11. SF Kawhi Leonard, San Diego St.

        12. PF Jonas Valanciunas, Lithuania

        13. SG Alec Burks, Colorado

        14. PF Markieff Morris, Kansas

        15. PG Jimmer Fredette, Brigham Young

At the highest level in the ACB last year Biyombo was already a huge impact player. Massive wingspan, great shot blocker, great athlete, intense rebounder. He's just as raw as Ibaka offensively though maybe even more although his jump shot has decent form and he has a decent handle. I think he'd be a great complement to Monroe just as I had Faried mocked to you a few months back before I began to realize just how short he was. If the Pistons do end up with Biyombo would be interesting to see how he reacts to probably being given Ben Wallace expectations.
            Biyombo would be a good pick for Detroit. If he's not there I would assume Tristan Thompson gets a long look and Givony said that there's a lot of Valanciunas fans in their front office. Leonard (or Vesely, but I don't think he's there) could be a surprise pick as well if the team isn't comfortable with Daye at SF, I don't see Prince returning and Jerebko has beefed up a bit.


            • Why is everyone so high on brandon knight?

              Sig by BK

              “They have one guy, he’s pretty short. But he can go out and play. He can be a little aggravating too.’’ -- Joe Flacco talking about Brent Grimes.

                I have no idea. He's too short to guard twos but he has very limited PG skills, and he's not a great athlete. He's a pretty solid shooter but that's all I see.

                  Kentucky pipeline. After the 5 Wildcats that went in round 1 last year people assume that Calipari will be producing stud lottery picks year in and year out.

                  Thanks to Bone Krusher for the sig


                  • Knight is not as spectacular a prospect at point guard as Cal has had recently, but in a draft where there's very few upper tier prospects, he is a relatively 'safe' pick thanks to his shooting ability and intelligence/intangibles. He does most everything well, shoots very well, but needs to work on his passing. He's not fast but he is quick and I think his intangibles will help compensate for some of the challenges athletically. Plus this draft doesn't have many skilled players who have the potential to play point guard and that certianly boosts Knight's standing.

                      1 Kemba Walker-Instant impact type PG that would start day 1
                      2 Jan Vesely-High potential Forward that could develop into a stud
                      3 Kawhi Leonard- High energy player that can be a big help on defense
                      4 Tristan Thompson-Defensive shot blocker that has a lot of untouched potential
                      All 4 of these guys are on my radar. I wonder sometimes if Kemba can actually be an impact starter in this league or not, but I'll be honest that my questions were answered a little bit when he measured in at 6'1" in shoes. I want to see him prove his superior speed in the drills though. If he comes out and puts up incredible vert numbers to match, I will be sold on him.

                      Why? Because I know he can play the game of basketball, the question is if he has the physical traits to do that against the NBA. If he can continue to answer the rest of the questions I have remaining for him, he will become my top choice for the Kings (within reason).

                      Oldie but a goodie.

                          • Marshon Brooks helped himself a lot, maybe this gets him in the lottery.

                            Also Justin Harper and Jajuan Johnson are a lot stronger than I thought they were.

                            • McCamey couldn't bench 185 once? wow that's pathetic. I think an average 150 pound man can bench 185 at least once, let alone a 6-3" 200 pound+ athlete.

                              BTW I've moved Kemba ahead of Knight, and a lot closer to Irving that most would think.
