    6'10, 13th overall pick

    This kid may have some potential. He's waived probably because Bucks have too many power forwards. This is his scouting report.


    NBA Comparison: Marcus Camby

    Strengths: Amazing run jump athlete with great work ethic. A workout junkie, bench presses 400 pounds. Might have one of the highest verticals in the NBA someday. Very good shotblocker. Offensive game doesn't always look pretty especially his post moves but the result is usually positive.

    Weaknesses: Appears to still be learning the game. Doesn't always look like he knows what he's doing. Fundamentals can improve.

    well if an eastern team doesn't want a big man, then he must be awesome. do we have to wonder about getting every single waived/put on the trade block/rumored to be on the trade block/free agent/european/chinese player ever?

    Big, strong, stupid.

    Hmmm.

    At times, I can live with that. I'd prefer smart ... but that's Scott Padgett. Smart...but soft. Bleh. Sometimes, you need an enforcer. That's the profile here.

    if the rockets wanted him, i'm sure they could find some room for him. the rockets could get rid of gaines and put bowen on the IR for a while or something like that...
