More updates from a pretty reliable site.
is a new name to Raptor mocks. Spartan power forward. I almost view this prediction as a "safer pick for positional need" ...
...whereas I might speculate about Poetl the Austrian or Brice Johnson the PF from NC (who is ranked 29 here ??).
Our pick :
Another completely new name to me:
- Spain. PF or 4/3 tweener.
No doubt we have good scouting in Spain and lots of (good) history with Spanish Players.
I have no idea about this player myself but it sounds "a lot" like Bruno
who we already have in the 905ers....so I doubt it.
Would a Spanish player bring back the "Bargnani Fans to our forum" or were those guys Italian ?
I think this list undervalues big men again...where as the draft tends to actually elevate them. i.e. you cant teach size.
Diamond Stone and Steve Zimmerman are both projected as 2nd rounders. My suspicion is they both get picked up late first round.
That would leave open talent in the PG SG positions. Masai would probably pick there.
