But think of it this way:
He would be a terrible pick in the lottery or in the 14-20 range because, well, he sucks.

But...

If we play well in the next few weeks and end up with a pick in the 20 range...

and...

Hibbert tumbles in the draft (most scouts don't have him in the top 20 anymore) and is available to us at 20 or so...

would he be worth taking? He's not too mobile, but he's legit 7 feet and he's a true big man. Could be be a Brendan Haywood for us? Would that be worth a late first round pick?
i think hibbert is serviceable and will be a decent defender/rebounder in the pro's. I would really like to grab him.
