Debate on Len/Bennett @ #4

Yeah I agree with the quote from the article regarding Biz.  He's going to be best served as a defense/energy guy off the bench.  Anyone expecting him to blossom into anything more than a decent rotational player is asking for too much IMO.

One NBA executive is calling Bennett a "superstar". Len is intriguing, but he scares me a bit. He's either the Gasol Brothers or a Jonas V./Bargnani. Imo, McLemore and Bennett are the only two players in this draft with All-Star potentials.

The NBA.com mock is confusing..says for the Hornets "dont overthink this" you need scoring then on the Pelicans pick say Len is a great scoring center to help Anthony Davis.

Umm I think you can find a few Tweener Bennets in the NBA but very few 7footers with a good post, shooting agility and coordination you find in Len. Noel's hype is based off potential and that he played for Kentucky.

Len shows just as much promise but more on the offensive side and has a more NBA ready game with size and strength.

Former Duke God Jason Williams was at the combine and said that when he posed for pictures with Noel, that his whole arm could wrap around Noels waist and that "I dont have the longest arms either!"

He expressed doubts about Noel and said at the earliest he would have to grow into his body and be able to defend at an NBA level in 4-5 years at the earliest.

Kind of sad that we used the #7 pick on a guy that we hope can get to scoring 10 pts a game.

 

I don't hate Biz, but he was nowhere near worth the #7 pick.

 

Sort of.  I think if Biz gets to around 10ppg than he was worth it.  His rebounding and shot blocking is just going to get better, but it's already pretty good.  We didn't draft him for offense.  We're looking at a hopefully Ibaka type guy.  He can be I think, but we need a scoring big man so Biz can float around.  Len would help this.

Valid points.  I just don't know whether he will ever develop an NBA offensive game.

 

Like I said....I don't hate him, but I do think that he was drafted too high.
