Nonetheless, even as a face-up four, I'd still pick Poythress over McLemore.
I'm not a huge fan of Goodwin, at least not yet. I don't like his team play and court vision, and I honestly don't think his scoring will translate very well at the next level. I think he relies too heavily on his foot-speed to get to the paint, and I don't see the hands/post skill to score in traffic at the NBA level. Furthermore I don't see him developing into much of a perimeter threat. If he was big enough to play SF then I'd be a bit more intrigued, but as of now I'm not all that impressed.

Just my opinion though.
