    I just want to say I have really appreciated this thread. 2 of the guys on my wish list (Kabengele and Windler) are guys I was oblivious to a month ago. While many of you think my apporach to the draft is wrong, I still appreciate what I have learned here. :cheers:

    Your choices are 2 good picks at the 25 and maybe earlier 2nd round I got filling we going to buy a 2nd round pick due there potential in the early part of the 2nd.

    Kabengele is gonna work his way into the top 10, I honestly would’ve even be shocked if he ended up at 4 with LA.

    He’s the best big in the draft imo, LA needs a big man desperately. He would fit with LeBron very well offensively, and his length is very nice defensively. I think LA ends up either trading the pick or taking Kabengele/Hunter

    You may be right in the end, but I dont think execs view him as highly as you. Definitely not as a top 10 guy.. But hes definitely talented and has a chance to be a Montrezl Harrell type of steal.

    That’s how I view him too, like a huge version of Harrell with more range offensively. He would be so perfect next to Collins for us but he won’t be there at 25.

    I could see him rising, but not that high. I think the first six are kind of entrenched, although the order might change.

    Is this the "What I would do" mock draft or is that the "What I think teams will do" mock draft?

    Maybe he could replace Hood if he leaves

    It's my prediction that we'll find a way to keep both Kanter and Hood.

    Yes, but twice in a 12 month period is stretching it! :devilwink:
