Measured out at 6'9.5" in shoes, with an impressive 7'4.25" wingspan. 37 inch vertical. At this point, he appears to be a top 10 prospect.

Really like this kid. Everything he is missing can be taught, and if you watch the way he plays Post-D, the kid definitely listens to his coaches.

He's raw but could be something really special.

Currently projected 7th to the Lakers, that would seem like a good fit if you ask me.

Reminds me of Chris Bosh when he was entering the league, with a little more bulk.

The high pressure expectations of Los Angeles might work against him. He's needs a more complete team to 'hide' in where he can learn his craft.

Then again, if anybody can increase somebodies understanding of basketball, Kobe wouldn't be a bad bet.

As a Laker fan I'm hoping we take him.

High character, good work ethic (see his work in the weight room) excellent physical tools, and already has a perimeter jumper to go with his rebounding ability.

Oh and he is the 2nd youngest player in the draft.

You would think his athleticism would be a good fit with Pau at C, and Pau's skillset would allow Vonleh to play more of that garbage man role right away.

I think ideally the Lakers would prefer to see Randle fall, though.

Isn't pretty much everyone expecting Pau to leave? I have him penciled in next to Duncan next year.

Who knows, still a lot of shuffling to do, but there's a possibility he's back I think.

With Pringles gone his odds of staying go up, but I think he will be considered a fallback option.

Well one worry I have is that he looked passive at times, although the guard play was terrible.

He also needs to work on his low post game, but on the whole I'd love to have him.
