Kelly Olynyk - C - Gonzaga
 
21 year old, 7 foot scoring big man. Scored 18 ppg on 63% from the field in 26.5 minutes per game. Good free throw shooter for a big man as well, 78% on 5.4 attempts per game. Not a dominant rebounder, pretty good passer, and can make some plays defensively.

Would you take him in the late lotto?

Nope. If I'm gonna use a high draft pick on a big man, he better be able to rebound. And if he can't, he better be aces on the defensive end. This guy is neither.

I honestly have no idea on him. A 7'1'' guy who can shoot is valuable because his height will allow him to shoot over guys and therefore shoot more mid range shots than other guys. In this draft... gosh I just don't know. He can be useful, but he doesn't pass the eye test for me I guess.

I completely agree with this. I have no idea what to make of him. I don't think he's a useful starter, but with his size he should be able to Brandon Bass the NBA. I just don't know how far that will take him.
