Enough has been said about what we are going to do with the first round. What about our other pick?
My head's a little spinny from all the draft talk for the Number One Pick. As far as I am concerned, Rose is a lock and anything that Pax does other than that is sheer lunacy. I'm just thinking of what we can do with the Second Round Pick we have.
I'd say we take Nathan Jawai.
There's a team in Singapore (where I'm from) that plays in the same league as Jawai so I've seen him first hand. In a nutshell, he's Aaron Gray with about 10 pounds more muscle.
He's got the strength and wingspan to be a scary post defender (he's called Baby-Shaq here). The biggest knock on him is his conditioning but he left Cairns about 10 pounds lighter and I've heard he is still working out more before the draft.
I think we can develop him into a solid contender in a few years. I know it's a bad idea to bring in another low post project but how many projects are as much of a physical specimen as this guy? He should also have that big match mentality we need as he is used to carrying teams on his back (NBL All-Star MVP & his team the Cairns Taipans).
So what do you guys think?
