Polythress or bust for me. He's an NBA 4, but can play either position. I know it's early, but I would be ecstatic if he was on our squad next year.
Seems to be a huge plethora of big men in the 2013 mocks for Draft Express.
Dudes who actually watch/follow College ball, assuming we don't get Shabazz, which big man would you pick?
Proud Australian Bobcats Fan!!!
Alex Len from Maryland. He just needs to bulk up or he will have a tough time staying healthy.
Chad Ford says he thinks all top 20 picks could be lottery picks this year, however he also says you don't want to have a top 3 pick this year. So in any case, it might not be a bad year to have say Portland's or Detorits pick if it is in the late teens/ twenty's
Also, someone tell me about Kyle Anderson... Someone said on Chad Ford's draft chat that he thinks he would go undrafted if he declared this year. Chad Ford's response is he doesnt have a clue as he is really hard to read. Anyone shed some light on this?
Kyle Anderson is a tall, slow PG. He's tall enough to be a forward, but not very big and his game is nothing like a big. He is a good passer, but not a strong shooter and much too slow to be a PG.

2013 first round draft pick from Portland
Portland's own 2013 1st round pick to Charlotte (top 12 protected in the 2013 draft, top 12 protected in 2014, top 12 protected in 2015, and unprotected in the 2016 Draft). [Charlotte - Portland, 2/24/2011]
2013 first round draft pick from Detroit
Detroit's own 2013 1st round pick to Charlotte (Top-14 Protected in 2013 Draft, top-8 protected in 2014, top-1 protected in 2015 and Unprotected in the 2016 Draft). [Charlotte-Detroit, 06/26/2012]
I dont see neither POR nor DET giving up their picks this season... maybe POR, but thats a big maybe...
1. Zeller seems to be the most talented, but while he's putting up some pretty good numbers he's not standing out like expected.
2. Noel is probably the best athlete, but in the times I've seen him he hasn't done anything at all to impress me and show that he adds anything Bismack doesn't already give us
3. Len is the new guy on the block. Bigger and just as skilled as Zeller, but I'm all sorts of scared of big plodding big men in the new NBA
Then you have Gobert, the massive foreigner that nobody has seen play but apparently has all of the measurements you want.
I'd pick Zeller if his arms don't measure out to be t-rex length, or Len if he proves to be more agile and continues his production as the year goes on
Kyle Anderson is a really tall but really slow and unathletic PG who plays as a SF to somewhat hide his deficiencies. He has great vision and is a hard guy to defend because he's so tall, but he's a weakk defender and way to slow to be a legitimate NBA guard/wing. Shaun Livingston post-injury-esque.
No room for him on our team
