I Yearn for Cockburn

Cockburn can actually play though.
Hard to imagine Cockburn isn't an NBA player. a legit 7' in shoes, 7'4.25" wingspan, 8% body fat, solid athlete for his size, chiseled frame, legitimately skilled as a basketball player and put up big numbers in college. yeah, centers are de-valued in today's league, etc, but it just seems like there has to be a place for a guy like that in the nba even if just as a 10 minute/game back up.

There are at least two 2nd round to undrafted big men like Cockburn ever year. They usually have much better shot-blocking numbers though.

From what I can tell Cockburn's best skill is that he's a pretty quick jumper for a guy his weight. He doesnt jump super high, so IDK about him being an elite lob threat, but he does get up pretty quickly and runs the floor (at least in highlights) well.

Cockburn is big, and he moves pretty well. He can catch and finish near the rim. He eats up space in the paint. He contests some shots and just watches others. He seems like a third-string backup right now.
