Exactly. Casey was talking about getting a free agency center for this year.

1) Bryan Colangelo pretty much swore that this pick is a good pick. He says "trust me" that this is a good pick. A lot of confidence in him we'll see.

2) Dwayne Casey couldn't even say his name HAHA...kinda funny

One thing that really irks me about Casey so far is that he won't discuss Davis at all. Tonight he said Valanciunas can also play the four and that he has more length then Amir.....so let me get this straight, Bargnani may play the 4, Valanciunas could play the 4, Amir is brought up. WTF?

You guys are the same fools who hated on BC for picking Ed Davis over Patterson. And how did that turn out?

Personally, I like that BC is willing to take a high reward risk. If his game can transition to the NBA, we have ourselves a legit center.

Check out the reactions in the media. Both Star and Sun reporters saw it fit to defend the pick and very few of them could be accused of being "company men".

Whatever, I am really tired of "defending" for tonight. Good night and please, for paramedics' sake, stay away from bridges and high buildings.

exactly, i just went through that part and thought the same thing. Maybe we are trading him? Or relieving players in our roster like dorsey and evans etc.

Or maybe we just have too many players like that for him to name all the players.. "i dont know" as JV would say hahahah

Not really he mentioned his name maybe once or very little, but doesn't speak of him a lot though. Davis is apart of the young core, "Young Gunz", and yet Casey talks more about Derozan, Amir, and Bargs more than Davis.

We'll see what we have in 3 or so seasons. He's still a bit of unknown.

Givony said he'll look like a monster in 3-4 years from now.

So we've basically written '11-'12 off in the hopes of getting another high draft pick for '12-'13 by using our pick on a guy who won't play with us this year. I guess since BC got his new contract he feels he was able to think long-term over short if the payoff was greater, but this is has been and will continue to be one looong rebuilding process which blows for the fans.

Listening to BC's press conference, he mentioned that his phone was blowing up with texts that were raving about how Jonas was a steal at 5. Good sign.

but really is a shame he can't even play the first year.
If there is a season next year; I hope and Pray to God please be a lockout next season. Knowing that will make everyone happy because we have another high pick and hopefully get more this off season in a strong draft class; We will have 1 awesome or several and 1 horrible to hopefully turn out into being good.

Basically, no player in this draft is a changer, at least at the moment. D Will and Irving may be good, or impact players.
Look at this draft. Enes 3#, Thompson 4#, Jonas 5#, Jan 6#, Biyombo 7#... terrible draft. No guy I just mentioned is better than Jonas.

Now Swag!!!

People are comparing Jonas to a young Z, but from what I've seen of him, I'd actually compare him to Tyson Chandler instead. Long, athletic, and defensive.

Was thinking the same. Looks like a nice kid, I'm sure he'll get along well with the team. If he defends well and hustles for rebounds like a man possessed then I'll be happy, can't wait to see what he's like.

I would love for him to be a little bigger though. A steady diet of steroids might help... mix it with some raw meat so that he may develop a thirst for blood...

Offensively, he definitely reminds me of young Z.
