A polished center with size happens very rarely, and with guys being drafted at 19 now it really doesn't happen any more.
Bogut was most certainly not a project center IMO when he came in.
Guy ravaged the NCAA in his sophomore year to the tune of 20+ pts, 12 boards, 3 ast and 2 blks.
Sweeped most player awards after that year too.
If he came into the league and immediately got to play under a guy like Skiles (Instead of Stotts and Krystwokwiak who shat on his development) he'd have reached this point 2-3 years ago.
