    Can we pass on Randel??????

    If he is there can we afford to pass on him?

    Can we afford to pass on Randel if he is there?

    I don't think so. He looks like a walking double double to me. If you play him one on one in the post he will over power almost anyone who defends him.

    I say yes, please pass him up. He isn't going to be "overpowering" guys like ZBo, Sully, Monroe, Blake,   Aldridge, Humphries, Ect. Ect.  He is a beast and a bully in college, but he can't play the same way against guys just as big and strong as he is at the next level.

    It's "Randle". That said, yes.

    He's not a lengthy big. The Cs have Sullinger, who is has a similar skill set. Randle would be a redundancy.

    The Cs need lengthy bigs and wings who can score from beyond the arc.

    DA said he wants rim protection in this draft.  Not sure Randle, who will be a very good player, can give us that.  Again, Utah is the key, IMO.  After the top 3, in whatever order, ORL will probably take Exum..............leaving us waiting for the Jazz...............who have Favors and Kanter, with Hayward and Burke.  Do they take Randle, Vonleh or Smart?

    Or do they trade it?

    Re: Can we pass on Randall??????

    If wind up drafting Randle, I wouldn't complain.  If Love's off limits, and the rebuild continues during next season, why not start:

    Rajon Rondo
    Avery Bradley
    Jeff Green
    Julius Randle
    Jared Sullinger

    I realize that this isn't a winning formula.  But at least it's five quality players.  And if we do the same thing we did last season, and play the players we're shopping (Bass, Crawford, Lee)..next season we could expect much bigger returns.

    Well, to your point - do you like this team better?

    Rondo/Pressey

    Bradley/LaVigne

    Green/Wallace

    Sullinger/Bass

    Vonleh/Fav

     

    I like that better because we have a true 5.

    are we convinced that vonleh is a true 5? i confess that i have not watched him play, but i have read much about him. he does have great length and apparently big hands, but he's still only 6-9. is that big enough to play the 5 in the NBA? maybe these days it is, with fewer and fewer true 5s playing in the league.

    His wing span is an enormous 7'5", and (rumor has it), he could still be growing.

    Vonleh's not the Center we're looking for.  He's 6'8.  He's moves at a slower pace than everyone else.  He has no explosiveness.  He always appears sad or confused..he's way too timid. 

    The Center for us is a rim protector that's vocal, and that makes teams think twice about driving in the paint.  Perk's numbers were always terrible, but he kept opponents out of the paint.  Perk revealed the value of a True 5.

    Vonleh's long arms will look like a matador waving a long red cape, when players like LeBron and Paul George decide to attack the basket.  As much as we need a rim protector, there simply are none in this draft.  And rolling the dice on a LOST PUPPY with long arms would be incredibly frustrating.  Expect Vonleh to be drafted no sooner than 8 (after Gordon, Smart, and Randle).

    I hope we pass on Vonleh, randle, and gordon.  None of them are scoring wings or rim protecting Centers.  That is what we need people unless DA is making some trades.
