This guy looks pretty interesting: http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Zhou-Qi-61857/

Been a while since anyone dared to draft a Chinese player.

However, he's 7 foot 2 and loving 209 pounds. I'd figure the CBA would be a pretty good place to use steroids, get on it CBA trainers.

Diamond Stone definitely has the best old school feel, but Dragan Bender also seems like some sort of fantastical hero with the ability to control dragons, so I'm really torn on that.

apparently the Spurs are forecast as drafting the next Yi Jianlian so that's rad

or wait, sometimes he's forecast super high or low in the first round. weird.

he's supposed to be a good jump shooter/shot blocker (at least for china) so comparing him to jianlian is a little mean.

Was Yi bad? I thought it was just injuries that took him out.

He was pretty bad, yeah. He was supposed to be a post scorer but wasn't good at that in the NBA. He got hurt but never really showed anything before the injuries IMO

If I was gonna play russian roulette and draft a CBA player the last thing I'd wanna do is leave him over there. Maybe work out some Huestis-type deal where he plays in the D-League for a year.

Alex Poythress is going to leave Kentucky with a degree, he might get a masters before he's done


Division I student-athlete with remaining eligibility may continue participating in athletics while enrolled in graduate classes.

To compete while in graduate school, a student-athlete must be within five calendar years of his or her initial enrollment in college. Student-athletes who have exhausted their five-year window for competition, but who have lost more than one season of competition due to injury, can apply for a waiver to continue playing.

It's kind of crazy that it's been more than two years since Joel Embiid has played in a basketball game.

Has there been anything comparable for a successful NBA player?

I can't think of two years, but Blake Griffin skipped his first one and ended up okay.

I'm not sure if stars is the right word but I do feel like smarter teams generally draft upperclassmen later in the draft. Not because more college seasons is the equivalent of spending that same amount of time in the NBA, but because they're more likely to get best value out of the rookie contract

I'd be down with either of them if they go down that far. At #37 I'd rather have someone I can pretend is going to be really good than another semi-competent role player. Then I can get mad at D'Antoni for not playing the 7 foot tall, 180 pound guy who hasn't even played NCAA-level competition

The thing I'm most interested about in Sabonis is whether he ends up better than his surrogate brother Donatas Motiejunas, who pulls off the Sabonis hook shot pretty well but doesn't really do anything else he did.
