If i had never seen either play in the NBA I would still gamble on Biz over Drummond every time. Both are raw, athletic shot blockers. Which one has the attitude to achieve his potential and success? Biz obviously.
Orlando has an 87m dollar payroll so yes they are the polar opposite of us in terms of rebuilding.
For the record 87m equates to the highest payroll in the league.
Also Drummond is going to be an excellent player but there is nothing wrong with Biyombo as is, right now, what do people think a project is?
There is a reason prospects like Biyombo (and Drummond) are called boom/bust prospects, there is rarely any middle ground.
Biyombo will be fine, he is currently the seventh youngest player in the league and is also the same age as both Ben McLemore and Shabazz muhammad who are both considered to have extremely high ceilings, he is one year older than Anthony Bennett.
I lurk BCP religiously and it is evident that you have a problem with Biyombo as if he personally did something to you.
Drummond checks both of those http://blog.ctnews.com/uconnbasketba...draft-combine/
Biyombo's ceiling is low in my eyes because at best he will be a slightly undersized good defensive / rebounding PF. Which is not some rare hot commodity. He simply lacks the coordination to be a serious threat offensively.
I wouldnt consider McLemore nor Bazz to have high ceilings. McLemore lacks ball handling / coordination, and Bazz lacks elite athleticism. Smart has a higher ceiling than both of them.
I dont have a problem with Biz, I think he will make a nice piece to a team off the bench with his defense and rebounding efforts. Something every team needs.
