according to nba.com, Ndong is 7' tall and 205 lbs... (SI lists him at 198!!)

now i'm tall (6'7") and not skinny, but I'm also not fat. I weigh 250 lbs, which looks pretty normal on a 6'7" frame. I'm not svelte, but I'm not buying stretch pants either, know what I'm sayin'? I weighed 200 in grade 10 (that's about 18 years ago).

For a 7' athlete, 205 lbs is ludicrously skinny...

anyone seen this guy play? Are we talking a Keon kind of frame, or is this guy just missing a significantly heavy body part (insert joke here)...?

He actually looks like he has a nice polished inside game and isn't afraid of contact. Maybe sign him for a minimum and stash him on the roster somewhere.

We're not just talking an NBA Keon here.

We're talking a coke addicted, riding around town on a motor scooter, 5 years removed from NBA workouts Keon. That's this dudes frame.

This fellow makes Keon look like Tractor Traylor.

And to further your point, I'm 6'4 and weigh about the same amount as this gentleman. I am considered quite skinny. Little muscle or fat. So, you know...add 8 inches and zero pounds to that.

Singleton would be the guy who I would actually not mind seeing here.

Veteran of the NBA and the Euro circuit I believe. And he's had some decent performances in limited oppurtunities.

I'm not too sure about Singleton. He's 6-8 but only 215 lbs. His number the past two years weren't really the best (2 ppg / 2.5 rebs) and he's very injury prone. He averaged 56 games/season in his 2 NBA seasons.

Looks too cocky IMO. Has a great touch on jumpers and can definitely get in the air.

I'm not too sure though...

Mostly every player that has a nice dunk once in a while gets a little cocky, it's human nature.

We're talking about a veteran player who has bounced around a bunch of different leagues and played less than 10 minutes per game for his NBA career. Cockiness is your concern? Really? What could this guy possibly be cocky about?

And a quick note on these videos...

A mixtape of my high school career could make me look like an NBA prospect. These show nothing but good plays. They aren't going to mix in shots of him getting blown by on defense or having his shot blocked.

Mixtapes tell you nothing about an NBA player other than what kind of highlights he is capable of producing.

What about Ryan Hollins or Theo Ratliff? They are both decent shot blockers and have good size.

Singleton signed with Dallas roughly when you boys were talking about him. Just so's you know.
