So here's a couple big guys that either I'm interested in. I was gonna do Festus Ezeli but haven't had any time to really do any research on him so I did a couple guys I've looked at more
Andrew Nicholson- 6'9 PF, 220 lb
Nicholson's a little old as he's a senior, but I've come to really like him and think that he's a bit underrated. He went into college weighing something like 185 and still being 6'9. Needless to say, he's put on muscle. He is a physics major (?!!?!?) who chose to got o ST. Bonaventure because of their new science facilities. Thankfully, he's not 100% nerd. In his 4 year college career his basketball IQ has improved tremendously as have his post moves. He started off only being able to dunk and now he's got what draftexpress.com calls a "very refined post game." He's even added a perimeter game too. He didn't shoot a 3 his first 2 years, then he shot 26% as a junior, and then 43% as a senior. His offense will be his biggest draw as he's very proficient on that end of the floor. Not to mention that he didn't start playing basketball until his junior year of highschool.
He's an average rebounder and not a very good defender though. Not to mention he's not all that large, though that can be helped. That is about all the bad I have to say and it can be done in 2 sentences
Where he fits: right on the bench in a Carl Landry/Jamison role when he was in Dallas role. He'd be a bench scorer if we don't draft a big before the very late 1st round. I'd hope that his defense and rebounding can be improved on. Alot of draft experts compare him to David West, which seems a bit of a stretch but Carl Landry or Jamison when he was good seems more realistic. He's not the kind of guy I'd ever want starting but off the bench he could really thrive, especially on a team that has no offense sitting on the bench
Doron Lamb- 6'5 SG, 205 lb (most recent measurements)
I also really like Lamb. If we ended up with Davis or MKG I'd love to land Lamb. He was Kentucky's leading scorer in the tournament who can drive and shoot very efficiently. He's got a nice little floater he uses in the paint, and shoots 47% (holy crap) from 3. He's even got a good mid-range game. He's probably not gonna be an elite scorer on the next level but I think he'll be one of those guys that can score in enough ways that defenses have to respect him, opening up the floor for the true scorers. He might even be able to play the bench scorer role like Jason Terry or JR Smith. He can even play PG if he's asked to relatively well.
On the defensive end he's not athletic enough to be an elite defender but he's dependable. He won't lock anyone down like Gee can but he's got good fundamentals, effort, and he understands where to force people into help defense. Overall, he's a dependable player who can help on both ends of the floor.
Where he fits: If we DO get Davis or MKG, we'll also really need a SG who isn't on AARP. I could see him starting or coming off the bench. If we don't trade up and get the other Lamb, Rivers, or Terrance Ross, I'd love to get this kid. He'll actually stretch the floor (unlike AARP), actually be able to drive(AARP), and actually be able to defend (unlike AARP). He's also just a sophomore, which means he's not 35, which means he's still got plenty of time to improve.
