if the Bobcats want to take a huge risk on someone like Cody Zeller. Trade down to the middle of the draft and take Rudy Gobert. he is 7'3 and would have the longest wingspan, nearly 8 feet and the longest standing reach at 9'7. Both will be NBA records.

I was thinking about it, and if we are in talks with the Wolves (who want Oladipo), that pretty much means we aren't interested in him.

 

He also never came in for a workout.

 

To be honest, I think the pick is down to Len, Bennett, or Zeller.

 

Good point, although I have to wonder if maybe we do like Oladipo but like whatever the Wolves are offering more - something like Pekovic + both their first rounders?

I mentioned this in another thread somewhere but, he is the big I'm most intrigued by.  When people have brought up Len, this is the guy I look at and say, "if you're gonna take a risk on a boom/bust big, I'd rather have Gobert over Len."  I remember watching the combine and they said he blew everyone away there with his ability and measurables.

F Ajinca, lol.  Nah, Gobert wowed the scouts at the combine. 

 

Ajinca was a bum from day one.  I didn't even remember hearing his name until the day of the draft and many analysts being surprised we traded for that pick to get him.  I don't ever remember there being a "wow factor" over Ajinca.  He was almost up there with Brezec as being my most disliked player in franchise history.  I was so mad we wasted a pick on him from the moment we got him.

I hated Ajinca, it's like he didn't even try... I mean seriously, you are seven feet plus... why can't you rebound or dunk?

Manute Bol was 7'7 and he couldn't rebound very well.

LOL exactly.  Look, I get that most bigs nowadays tend to play away from the basket, but if you're going to be that kind of big, at least be good at it.  He epitomized soft.

Does anyone remember the guy Kenny George who played for UNC Asheville, he was 7'9. I wonder how he would have translated to the NBA. Too bad he had his foot removed.
