JV is a C in a PFs body. It will be interesting to see how he turns out.

Well not exactly, according to predraft measurements he is same height and already heavier than Biedrins. Potentially he can already play as a C in the nba, but i really want him to gain more weight (which i think he will)

Get him over here A.S.A.P.
Don't let him chill in the Easyleague for another season.

the draft this year was hyped up, as the college season progresses players stock have dropped, not many players lived up to the hype, also guys like harrison barnes and sullinger haven't got better

something to do with that plus the fact that jonas is playing better in a league with men instead of college students

the troubling part of the up coming draft is that the best players are bigs, bigs arent' the problem with the Raptors you could argue were set for the next decade in that position with 4 talented guys amir,davis,bargs,val,

our roster needs some depth plus another high level all around player in either the 1,2 or 3 spot

The buyout is already set. He will not be playing in the Euroleague next year.

I love hearing stuff like this

When I watched the draft I'll admit I first wrote him off as a scrub since I hadn't heard much of him. Since then however I've followed him and fell in love!

well the age of the C is pretty much over and half the players in the league playing C are guys in PF bodies, i don't see a real problem here, the key is as long as he plays the style of a C
look at ben wallace, the guy is like 6'8" or something, but he played the style of a C, when his body was probably more like an SF/PF
the game is going more and more away from position assignment to game style, its more of a bigs, wings, and point guards idea

He pretty much weighed the same as D12 did in college, its pretty much the case for most centers entering the league.

I don't think 285 is the right weight for him. He seems like he has frame that could fill out nicely around 250-260.

Sort of like how Noah looks now.

Well he should be around 245 already, do you think he can only gain 10lbs or so?

He's 240 right now, I'd say he could get up to 265-270 max with a few years in the league.
