Draft Bennett this year... trade the PDX pick for T-Rob. Then with the DET pick next year we can take Kaleb Tarczewski future front court of:
This could be realistic. PF we have a nice duo of Bennett (offensive-minded player) and T-Rob (defensive-minded player). Then hopefully Tarczewski can be the big man of the future with Biz being a reliable back-up. I think we'd all be okay with that front court, right?

I know he's not elite, who's elite in what in this roster? Even Kemba is not an elite scorer nor an elite passer.
Still, he's the 7th and younger pick of 2011 draft, even younger than Oladipo and see no reason to stop developping Biz at C. And he could very well became close to elite defender next season with all the work he's reported to do
John Wall has hinted that he would like a guy like AB... Washington is sitting at #3.
FWIW. I think he could be ROY in the right situation.
I could also see him becoming a defensive liability for a couple years coming in. The question is will he be one of those players that never "gets it" one of those players that takes a few years to "get it" or a transcendent talent that will show superstar qualities in his first year in the league.
Olidipo does not thrill me, seems only slightly better than MKG, if at all..
Len is a risk because of injury but I would not hate it if either he or Bennett end up being the pick.
Any update on Bennett's shoulder after the surgery? Haven't heard much of anything about progress on the injury. Hope surgery went well and that he can be playing again sooner rather than later, regardless of who picks him.
