We still don't know if he'll return or not. It's too early in the season to pay too much attention to what they say
Cho was there at the UCONN game watching Drummond. him not entering the draft really hurts us imo I'm kinda sad about it. it seems like everyone else high up in the lottery is a PF now which we obviously have no use for. I guess we have to target one of the small forwards MKG or Barnes. meh
He said "as of right now i see myself back here." He didn't have to say "as of right now" This suggests that he understands that come draft time his decision might have changed
What are peoples thoughts about Austin Rivers? Im not talking about taking him with our top pick cuz that would be fucking crazy but what if we did make a trade using DJ or Diaw to get a lottery pick and snatch him up there.I love the guys confidence. He has very sick handles. IMO, one of the best if not the best at creating his own shot in college. If he was just consistent, he would definitely be a top 5 pick.
Personally, I would love a team like this for the future. Everybody would have a role with the team are may be able to contribute and work well with one another.
Kemba - He is the head of this beast. He is the leader of this team and he will do what ever it takes to win. If it means he has to be in control of the rock hell do so, if he has to play off the ball and let Rivers do work, so be it. A person that is a true winner.
Rivers - Ball hungery player that can create shots for himself and for others. He just needs to drill that thru his head that this is a team game. He can be so much more lethal when he plays the team game.
Barnes - The Ray Allen of SFs but he can do a bit more. I agree with Swedd about not being the best ball handler but when you have the likes of Rivers and Kemba controlling the rock, would it really be needed.
Byimobo - He is here only for the D cuz Mullens is going to have a hard time in the paint by himself.
Mullens - Spreads the floor and allows the likes of Kemba and Rivers to drive the lane to either score or create for others.
I have always said that Rivers has the potential to be a destroyer of a PG. He has the ball handling and vision to get to any spot on the floor he wants. The problem is that when he gets to those spots, he's too busy looking to make some wacky off balance shot than kick it out to someone spreading the floor. With Curry, Dawkins, and Kelly on that team, he could easily average 8 assists a game if he wants. Unfortunately he's way too selfish and isn't nearly efficient enough to make up for it. He's also way too undersized to play the SG position in the NBA so he's going to have to learn to play the point at some.... point. You could say that I'm not a fan of his, at all.
But if he were to figure it out, he has the potential to be scary
I like what i have seen from Austin Rivers. Granted that is not that much, just a game here or there. He would be a great 6th man/spark offense kind of guy. I know a lot say Kemba will be that.

Dont get much college ball in Australia. What are peoples thoughts on these players as potential picks Arnett Moultrie, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Brad Beal? I am only going off nbadraft.net and would like to get a better background on strengths, weaknesses and NBA potential if anyone has seen them play.
MKD is a beast. The only real weakness you can find with the kid is mediocre shooting yet he's still shooting like 35% on 3s and 75% fts as a freshman. Give me MKD over Barnes all day.
I like Drummond, Lamb(even though he needs to develop more moves to shake defenders) & Sullinger. I wish we could have 2 top 10 picks (one in the top 5, or in top10). Imo nobody on the team is solid at there position, I also like Kendall but we drafted a PG last year. Biyombo is a waste of a pick so drafting a PF would be cool to me. Not sold on Anthony davis yet, dude grew 10 inches in 1 year, how healthy is that?
