You realize that as the evaluation process went on that Walker's stock plummeted worse than pretty much every other prospect on the board, right? Mistakes are made every year, but there has to be some deference to the people who do this sort of evaluating for a living.

In all reality, Knight nor Kemba will be NBA starters. Kemba is a 6-man at best.

You can't look at NCAA performance but styles of play.

Not really, Bargs could be moved to PF and use Davis as a 6th man?

With Val, we have a potential top-10 C waiting in the wings.

Which is huge imo. He's a guy who doesn't have a ton downside.

pfft, Sit bargs on the bench and let Davis start at PF. At least he plays like he gives a damn. Maybe a swift kick in the ass might also motivate Bargnani to try some rebounding.

Trade Bargs for a pick to draft Knight. Fantasy GM moment over. Let the starting frontcourt next year or whenever be Davis and Johnson.

Is there any veteran lithuanian's in the nba that can be good for valanciunas progress? I think it'd be good for him.

Hey I agree I have no love for Bargs either and would love to play Davis over him, but I think you realistically have to at least give Bargs a chance at full time PF and see if he can turn things around or not.

The reason I like the Val pick so much is because I think he could be great with Davis, not Bargnani.

If we keep Bargnani and use Davis as the sixth man I will be very displeased.

No surprise really, that Detroit would take him.

He's had what, like 4-5 years? What you see is what you get.

Cue the "not another white guy!!!"

I'm pleased with this pick. Needed position whereby the consensus BPA is a natural at a position we're desperate for- a match made in heaven.

If he hasn't turned it around yet, he probably won't. He still could pick up something simple like rebounding, but he's not suddenly going to play more assertively or defend better.

EDIT: also will have draft avatar in a while. It's dinner time out west.

Wanted knight, but if this guy lives in the paint at the nba level I'll be happy.

He sure fell into Detroit's lap. They never even had a workout.

Or not like he's just going through the motions night in and night out.
