I'll give my take on the draft.
I really really really don't want the team to draft another European but I think Valaciunas may be the best pick. He's not NBA ready yet but he's got tons of potential, a legit center and from what I've read he is not soft, rebounds well, plays defense though his offensive game needs some developing. He can get put backs and finish around the rim but doesn't have much post skills or the ability to break a defender down one on one. Shoots free throws well.
Knight would be my second choice. Good defender, shoots well, point guard size though he needs to develop a point guard game and work on his passing skills which could happen in time. If he can improve his dribbling and passing skills, maybe he could turn into a Westbrook type player.
Kanter and Leonard would be my 3rd/4th choice... I think they are interchangeable.
If we pick Biyombo, I'll give up on this franchise forever.
