It was obvious, listening to Bobcats coach Larry Brown, that he was impressed by Louisville's Earl Clark Thursday. Brown compared Clark to both Tim Thomas and Boris Diaw, just the kind of versatile, highly skilled players Brown likes.
Brown has said repeatedly that talent should outweigh need in making any draft pick. But I wonder how much Clark would play on a roster that already includes Gerald Wallace and Vladimir Radmanovic. Clark probably isn't strong enough to play power forward anytime soon at the NBA level; he needs to be a 3.
I'd be ok with taking him considering we could still end up stealing Dionte Christmas ,Danny Green, or Meeks in the second round.
Clark reminds me of Odom/Anthony Randolph.
