 This kid just looks the part of a Super athletic NBA PF. 6'10" carved out of stone, 7'2" wingspan, just turned 19 years old. In only 17 mpg he's Avg 8.4 ppg and 5.3rpg and 2.3 bpg.

 Modest numbers except the BPG, but very high Upside. I know we have Mickey but this kids Upside is tremendous. Projected to be a top 15 pick.

Sounds like more of a center to me, as Mickey projects to be a PF. I am all for high upside centers, but for every one that pans out, there are dozens of other Fab Melos out there. Somebody to keep an eye on.

Please don't bring up Crap Melo ever again.

 IDK what Ainge was thinking with that pick, one of the worst basketball players I have ever seen.

When I watched some tape of him I expected to see someone who is more explosive athletically given his block numbers, but I didn't really see that. Seems like a "slow" jumper right now. However, he is definitely someone to keep your eye on and see how he progresses. Interesting prospect anyway.

Released by one of the worst teams in the league, that tells you something.

I think Memphis dumping him is more meaningful.  They're a franchise that historically appreciates guys with his projected skill set.

The Kings are just a mess, full of big men with unfulfilled potential.

Anything after 10 is a complete crapshoot anyways.

I scooped him up off the waiver wire for my bottom dwelling team (affectionately named Deyonta's Inferno).  He's long, athletic, and shows flashes, but he cant shoot and is limited the most by wavering interest/effort.  Cool hair though.
