I don't care what we have to do to make it happen, but we need to get Nerlens Noel, and in the process I find Biz to be expendable. I wasn't a big fan of Biz prior to the draft, but when we slowly started to realize that's one of the guys we were targeting with 7 or 9, I started to buy into the defensive prowess and potential.
Sadly, after seeing him in extended action this season, I believe he won't be much better than he is now. I doubt he will ever average double-digit points, and I think his potential for growth in general is extremely limited. Yes, I know he is 20, but he isn't a natural basketball player. I remember hearing prior to the draft, that at best, Biz projected to be Ben Wallace... AT BEST. Well, I don't think he's Ben Wallace. I love his attitude, his work ethic, and his enthusiasm, but he just isn't a core guy.
SO, that being said, I truly believe Nerlens Noel is what we hoped Biz could be, so Biz is expendable. Noel also has great potential offensively, so that's who I am hitching my wagon too. I also think he will be a much better pro than even Anthony Davis.
Considering all of this, what do you think we can make happen with Biz? And do you think Noel is a realistic option? And do you agree or disagree with my general premise? Discuss.
