18 years old. 6'9, 245 lb monster with a 7'7 wingspan. very reminiscent of Ben Wallace/Serge Ibaka


he's a PF but imagine the defensive unit we'd have if Lee had to sit and Udoh & Biyombo were roaming the paint.



hope he's there at our pick ... if not ... realistically it'll be Kawhi Leonard.

They list Bismack as a 6'9 center mainly because he doesn't have much offensive skills. He's Ben Wallace 2.0 or another Adonal Foyle. Not sure if thats a good thing, but they did take a 6'10 PF last draft and they still have David Lee. At #11, I don't think BB would be the best available player.

I want more defense, but not in the form of players that don't play the other end either, unless they really fit in, like BWallace has in his nba career

Ben Wallace looks a lot bigger and stronger, Biyombo reminds me of Udoh, with his build.

Udoh is much lankier than Biyombo... he isn't QUITE Wallace size (closer to Ibaka right now), but lets not forget he's only 18 years old [as far as we know]. :roll:

Read the other day that he way taken to a specialist who said based on his growth plates he could be even younger than 18, but regardless still has much room to grow. Would have to acquire a legimate big-man coach to develop him as his game is still very raw.

I would totally take this guy at #11. some "experts" would probably knock us and say he's not lottery worthy, but who cares? in a weak draft class we need to take a gamble. nbradraft.net has him going #25 right now to Boston...

Are they sure about those numbers? Because i think they refer to a Gibon. Man have the same span as high. No way there can be such a difference. If there is, we are talking about a freak of nature. The only explanation is that the boy will get taller, fast.

Can't help but think he sounds like a guy who might turn into Ekpe Udoh two years down the road. That may not be a bad thing, but I'm not quite so thrilled about the Warriors drafting a big with no lost post game (isn't that one of our bigger needs?). The Warriors are at a point where should be drafting NBA-ready upperclassmen, not projects. They're in "compete now" mode. Not quite "contend now", but way better than another four years of rebuilding.
