    Anthony Bennett has been discussed quite a lot going back more than a year. He was the backup plan to Poythress for UK (not saying who's better, that was just the options as Cal saw them). He's good, real good. He's a SF similar to Millsap being a SF. Meaning a bit of a tweener that can play either position but depending on the matchups.

    I see that as a pro, as long as the player can play at least one position well enough. Jazz already have two PF/Cs, so while I'd rather have side if all other factors are equal, finding a way to create an issue for the other team if you can trot out a stretch 4 or power 3 is good too. I like versatility, and in fact, maybe I prefer a 3/4 to a 5 assuming Kanter and Favors turn out to be good enough to roll with.

    Sometimes. He's a bit undersized for PF and a bit underskilled for SF. I'm going on too much of a tangent, though, because I like him and think he'll be a good pro.

    What people are really beginning to understand is that there is some good potential throughout the 1st round. The top is weaker this year, but the depth not by a whole lot.

    Well Millsap didn't begin to develop the remotest SF skills until about 25, so Bennett is well ahead of him in that department, and a sign he could maybe play it full time one day.

    Which guy who's projected to go in the top 20 or so is a stud penetrator? I like Poythress and Bennett a lot in that they both seem to have a strong alpha presence (which we sorely need) but can they create their own shot time and time again?

    I would guess one of the UK guys penetrates the most studs.

    Off the top of my head I'd say Noel, but PKM probly has more first hand knowledge on the subject than I do.

    Who are the these no name hacks y'all speak of?

    Otto Porter is the truth. Tayshawn Prince v2.

    Otto Porter should be better offensively than Tayshawn Prince.

    Who is Tayshawn? And based on what do you make this assertion? I don't even necessarily disagree, but curious how you arrived at that jewel of a conclusion.

    Because Tayshawn/Tayshaun is a limited offensive player, and Porter seems to have a mid-range game, decent passing, scoring instincts, etc.

    I don't disagree. Tayshaun is more diverse being perimeter/post .. whereas Otto is good across the whole floor and therefore more offensively well-rounded.
