this guys getting alot of hype watching the scout combine today people keep talking about him i guess hes got a freak like wingspan that should be good for blocking shots and a nba ready body but a low basketball iq, anyone know where this guy could go and any interest in picking him by trading down?

just checked out some footage. As far as his offense and athleticism he looks great with a pretty good jumper even. what i saw on defense was decent. As an on-ball defender he looked very average, but as a weak side shot blocker i was less than encouraged. Overall having never heard of the guy im VERY impressed though. If we could nab him with our second rounder that would be a great pick up

I saw him on the combine also. i will give a brief run down of my thoughts:

19 years old from England
Does not have bad habits yet as he obviously did not get thrown into American AAU ball.
Good mechanics/fundamentals

He has the body of Brandon Wright
Rail thin/would get dominated down low right now
Not ready for the NBA, but no one was talking about him coming over right away

Would not mind picking him up with our 2nd and stashing him until he was say 21-22.
Needs to bulk up to a Chris Bosh type frame.
Commentators were saying how empressed a lot of scouts/GMs were

Projection: Late first round/early second round
