I don't see how this guy appears at number 42 overall on NBAdraft.net's mock... If he does slip that far down I think we could be looking at another Carlos Boozer type of player stolen late in the draft. He has excellent agility and athleticism in the paint, and brings a tremendous amount of intesity to the floor, as well as having a well-rounded game, which would fit him very well in an NBA uniform.

He is a very good player, but is a classic tweener. He is undersized for the PF position and is too big for SF. He is a combo forward that will likely find the NBA someday. The more I see him, the more I think Rodney Rogers.

He would be very foolish to declare for the draft this year. He should either stay at Mizzou or play pro in Europe.

Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Rodney is an excellent 6th man, being able to bang down low, then step out and hit the 3. Ultimately, I think Kleiza could be a very solid back-up forward in the L.

He reminds me Charles Barkley, just Linas is even more aggressive.

I dont know many players that were more aggressive than Charles Barkley was when he got that ball down on the low block or right outside the lane. So that may be saying something but its just hard to imagine him being more aggressive than Barkley

I think Luol Deng has that all wrapped up. Don't get me wrong about my posts. I think has a bright future, just not as bright as you think. Let's hope you are right and I am wrong.

Don't forget about Humphries. Though on a mediocre team, Humphries is putting up huge numbers. I would vote for Deng, though, because he is a major part of the #1 team in the country.
