    I'm coming around on this pick. Length, athleticism, a little bit of a shooting stroke.

    I would of gone diamond stone or zhou qi, siakam might have dropped out of the draft, if it weren't for Masai.

    i watched a couple games of his, I liked him a lot, he was one of my dream targets for this pick, so I'm excited!

    He has motor in spades, he's quick enough to switch on guards on picks, top energy defensively, good wingspan. If we wanted a top motor PF next to JV, then this is the guy who actually has the quickness to play the role, unlike IMO Sabonis.

    He needs to get stronger, especially in the legs. he will probably get pushed around by some PFs right now. But nothing 15 pounds can't fix. And either way, he doesn't give up.

    If he could learn to shoot, he's a steal of this draft. If he doesn't, he's a super high motor defensive backup 4.

    I don't know if he can learn to shoot, but the games I saw were from different years, and it looked to me that his touch was considerably better this year than in 2015. So maybe? he's 22, but he's still improving a lot year to year.

    Isn't Zhou Qi supposedly ridiculously skinny AND soft? Like, makes Skal look like Oakley soft? Never got too excited about him.

    He looks tough as nails. Welcome to the team

    Hits 70% of his free throws. If he can be a Biyombo who can shoot, that's great value at 27. Big if, but looks possible.

    I am not excited by either Qi or Stone, but both were highly rated in the past. I'm convinced we could of picked siakam up as an undrafted free agent.

    Why are you convinced? Was he outside top 60 in most mocks? It's a genuine question, I only saw draftexpress prior to the draft, and I remember him being around 40 there. He seemed more likely to rise into 20s-30s to me than drop out. i know he's mentioned less but he's not some unknown nobody discovered by Masai in some jungle.

    He looks pretty impressive out there. Small-ball 5 potential.

    I've decided that I'm pretty sure we nailed this draft. If we end up not making any moves this summer, we shored up our problem areas, and built more depth with solid picks.

    He might have been drafted in the second round, but undrafted energy players are a dime a dozen. I think a lot of teams are making a mistake by passing on stone, he had a bad year at Maryland, but he can punish people in the post, he might turn into a Zach Randolph.

    If they stash him in d-league, does he take up any capspace?

    If they agree not to sign a contract this year, no.

    But D-League salaries are non-existent, tough to see that happening unless it was an agreed upon deal for taking him earlier than projected.
