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.
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.
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.
