The latest DraftExpress item on the Nike Hoops Summit mentions a couple of interesting bigs, Lucas Nogueira and Bismack Biyombo. Of the two, although Nogueira is a 7-footer and has great hair, Biyombo sounds like a guy maybe worth trading down for if we don't win the lottery. Here's what DraftExpress has to say about him:
Biyombo stands out immediately when he walks into the gym. He sports a chiseled frame (measured 4.8 % body fat) with broad shoulders and an incredible 7'7” wingspan, and as we saw during some of the brief 5 on 5 sessions, he has an outstanding motor, which makes him a terror on the glass and on the defensive end. He also looks to be a very mature player with a great attitude, often seen encouraging teammates, talking with the coaching staff, and helping others with instructions. The experience he's garnered seeing heavy minutes in the top league in the world outside the NBA—the Spanish ACB--over the past few months was very evident.
Sounds like someone who could complement Moose very well, perhaps in the way we were thinking Faried could - except this guy is stronger and has a freakish wingspan.
Now your thoughts.
