Cho has always said that he will draft BPA and trade for need. I would love a Kemba/McLemore/MKG combo and maybe we can get a couple bigs through FA/trade. Not to mention the other picks we have.
The more I see of this kid...Wow. Looks like someone with an NBA offensive game who can put up points.
Larry Johnson/Jason Maxiell body
Excellent perimeter face up skills on offense, including long range shot. (Better than LJ ever had at that age)
Offensive efficiency: 19 points on 12 shots a game.
Goes hard to the basket, with some thunderous highlight dunks.
Solid rebounder, though you'd like a little more on the college level from someone with his physique.
Low post game is still developing?? Since he can move his feet on the perimeter(offensively), he should have no trouble learning footwork in the post.
At 6'7", might be a 'tweener, primarily on the defensive end.
We don't know his reach yet. I'm guessing around 8'10".......
Is said to have a 7'1" wingspan, which is encouraging.
possible lineup next year:
Taylor or Henderson
That's a small frontline heightwise, but there is a lot of muscle and wingspan in that bunch....
Bennett provides the perimeter skills that MKG lacks. And defensively they might be a little interchangeable....
Someone has just watched the draft express video and scouting report uploaded today and fallen in love: http://www.draftexpress.com/article/...y-Bennett-4056
If not, that's just a weird co-incidence
He first caught my eye with that 3 pointer at the end of the Hoop Summit last April. I was like, "Who is this broad-shouldered specimen draining a fade-away 3??"
So we're talking about a PF who according to the linked Draft Express report has: lack of defensive effort; poor defence in the post and lack of a back-to-the-basket game as his principal knocks?
To miss-paraphrase ... 'you lost me at lack of defensive effort.'
That's a no from me ... assuming that Draft Express are correct as I don't know enough about the player to offer my own opinion.
Draftexpress picks apart even the best of prospects. One thing I love about them.
Any true Anthony Bennett experts out there?? Swedd, do you have an opinion on him??
cause I checked the standings and right now blazers are the 8th seed which means we would get their pick.
I'd rather get it in a deeper draft but, adding 2 lottery picks to our current roster will help speed up the rebuild.
