Dont settle on this guy, hes not BPA #4. much rather sign al jefferson in free agency

 

So who should we settle on?

 

An out of shape McLemore

Another defensive minded big in Noel

A small tweener in Bennett

A one-dimensional shooting guard in Oladipo

 

What do you suggest?

So you want to draft a power forward that isn't even taller than our small forward and then sign a 6-10 center in what might possibly be the smallest front court in the NBA?

 

How about drafting a true center in Len and then signing Jefferson to play power forward.

 

A while back I listed tweeners that have succeeded in the past 15 years and literally the only one was LeBron James.

I think he's the best big.  And that's the area we've been dominated at since, well our existence.   We need C/PF help bad and I just don't see a clear cut PF that we should take at our spot, not when we need a true center.

Len had a big game vs. Noel/Cauley-Stein and UK, but at times I felt like he's not as offensively polished as I thought. Len had some difficult times putting in easy baskets. Still, like him a lot though.

Nice interview, he's doing really well with English considering.   What I notice is he's very humble, and I feel he'll be a hard worker, coming from where he came from, I think he realizes what an amazing thing it is to be able to play in the NBA.   I like he mentioned defense as his favorite part of the game.  Also, he played through his injury and that shows some toughness, even though like Simmons says in the interview, it shouldn't be delayed (looking into it that is).

Out of shape McLemore? Have you seen McLemore? One of his strengths is that he has an NBA-ready body. The guy is ripped.

 

I'm not going to address Noel at all.

 

I agree with you on Bennett. Don't like him.

 

Oladipo is not as one dimensional as you think.

CP8789 is just being bias. It's like me saying Len's knees aren't going to hold up in the NBA bc he's 7 footer, white boy can't jump, or name me one European Center who has ever won a championship. Just bull$hit reasons to force him in thinking his guy is better.

If Len is there at 4, great but if not I'd glady take someone else. The world is not going to end.

There have been reports of Mclemore showing up to workouts not in shape. Teams are also seeing a problem with the people he is listening to. Meaning his Reps. are making him fug up.

 

 

Sources tell ESPN that Kansas SG Ben McLemore was out of shape in recent workouts for the Suns and Magic.
McLemore reportedly "struggled to keep up." It's not a good look for a player whose assertiveness and motivation was already being questioned thanks to a bunch of passive games in college. McLemore is sliding down boards as the June 27 draft approaches. Chad Ford does have him going fifth to the Suns in his latest Mock. Jun 18 - 3:29 PM

That/Those argument/s aren't even remotely the same.

 

There are reports out that McLemore is out of shape.

 

There are no reports of Len having a knee injury, he has an ankle injury.

 

All you have to do is watch a game of his to see that he can jump

 

Pau Gasol won an NBA Championship and Marc Gasol will soon enough.

 

You really need to stop, you're making yourself look bad.
