he's a bit bigger now but yeah he needs to bulk up a bit but that will come with time....i believe i remember him being listed 240 when i was watching the combine on Nbatv and it's been a while since then wouldn't surprise me if he's 245 maybe 250 by now.....

Didn't he have a meniscus issue at one point? Or am I thinking of someone else?

^^^Too short and wear and tear would severely shorten his chances at playing in every game. Plus, we don't need him getting blocked a million times by 7-footers.

Shorter then Dwight? Wear and tear on the person who could guard Dwight Howard night in and night out at center?

Sorry, but I call foul, not fact.

Not a Orlando fan but you were extremely lucky you got the 2nd best PF in the draft only A. Davis will have a better career. He has the ability to start for you and will develop each year.

thanks.

Do you think Nicholson can develop into a #1 option for us?

He'll bulk up. That's something that he's acknowledged and the team will help him. Scary part is you don't want to lose your shooting touch as you bulk up.

Harkless is living and training in Orlando. He has been tweeting about it.

Another observation about Nicholson based on pics: He has very small wrists. Wonder if this speaks to his bone structure in general, and relatedly, to his ability to add significant bulk.
