While we have a lot of bigs on the team right now, that's not to say that some may be gone come draft time, or at least will have moved off the burner by then. This season is all about who is a future core player and whose not. So it may make some sense to use a 2nd rd pick on someone like Bolden and stick him on our G-League team.
With the 2 expirings in Z-bo and Koufos the Kings do still have plenty of roster flexibility, and flexibility with the bigs. I think willie is a lock to be resigned. So im guessing they'll be in the market for a vet big, a mauler of some type, so I was thinking it's unlikely that player will be signed for more than 2 or 3 years, why not 'pair' the signing with drafting a mauler big thats young, a project and has some offensive touch/potential.
While his current style of play doesn't fit into today's NBA, there's always a need for a player that can defend the middle and grab boards.
I didn't realize Schnieder Herard left college, he lands in the 4th round. Willie Reed goes #1 and Chinanu Onuaku goes #2, and Onuaku's still younger than some players we'll see drafted this year...
It's rough out there for some of these bigs with these archetypes.. Kansas should be an interesting case study in this with Udoka and David McCormack.
