    Thank you.  After reading this, I think I like Gordon best.

    Word is that Randle is alongside Parker, NBA ready.

    I mean I like Gordon best out of the 3 players critiqued by the scouts.

    Exum - SG who can't shoot which might make him a PG but is he a PG?  His value is largely based on mystery because no one has really seen him that much. (Last part scares me.)

    Vonleh - Big man with great size measurement but not that athletic, will play a stretch 4 and have to be able to shoot well beyond 16 feet to be successful.  (I really do not like the sound of slow PF who has to stay outside beyond the arc most of the time.)

    Gordon - Super athletic energy guy who probably will never be a great scorer but will do everything else well especially in defence, also a tweener between SF/PF.  (He has flaws also but somehow I am picturing a little bit of John Havlicek?)

    I like all 3 - but no chance on Exum.  IF Vonleh can play the 5, he is the guy to take.  Gordon is very safe, and will be a good player........esp if we get rid of Green

    I doubt it.  He is going to have to completely overhaul his offensive game because his style of play just won't work in the NBA.  Driving his shoulder into smaller guys and flipping the ball at the hoop isn't going to get him to the line here, its going to get him alot of offensive fouls, and shots sent back at his head. So that one trick pony is going to have to find a new trick.
