Ha, he's a legit 7 footer with a nose for the ball. I think he could potentially be a serviceable back-up big off the bench in limited minutes. Certainly can't be much worse than Josh Boone.

You can always tell who's under contract and who's not in Summer league.

Most of these drafted rookies and signed players play within the flow of the game and don't force much, while the guys fighting for a roster spot are looking to get theirs and often look out of control.

In all seriousness I really don't expect him to get a lot of minutes. I'm really anticipating see Lance Stephenson trying his 0 guard Gilbert Arenas type point guard spot they've been trying him at since the draft. Him and Magnum Rolle, the coaching staff's been saying he's a lot more than just the lanky athletic guy they expected. And of course my first time ever seeing Paul George in a game situation.

I saw two of Paul George's games at Fresno State and the dude is fun to watch. You'll be in for a show (hopefully). Saw plenty of Stephenson in the Big East and I like his handles and mid range game, but I really don't see him as point guard. At all. Not even in the Tyreke Evans mold.

I don't either, also at all. I guess his handles could be adequate for it, and in Jim O'Brien's offense about the only traditional PG trait he uses is the 1 bringing the ball up the floor, after that it's predominately off ball. Still, I worry about him guarding 2s, let alone NBA 1s.

I'm hoping it's just a quick experiment since the roster's so PG depleted, they'll quickly realize it ain't happening and hey, it was worth a look. If they try and fit a round peg into a square hole we got problems though.

Speaking of PGs, I'll get to see Huertel too. I think he's got a decent shot to make the roster, Bird apparently likes him a lot.

Hansbrough's still dealing with the inner ear problem, supposed to be ready for training camp. I'll believe it when I see it, I'm worried about his future.

AJ Price broke his knee in a charity game about a month ago and had surgery a few days later. May miss the first month or so of the season.

No health problems with Rush I don't think, just not a lot of reason for him to be there. They've got the wings they drafted and a couple points they want to give lots of minutes to see what they've got I assume. We already know what he is.

Ah thanks for that. Back to what you said about Lance, people have been saying they see him a Tyreke Evans type point guard, but I don't even see that. Tyreke is much more of a playmaker than Lance. Yeah, Hansbrough hasn't had any luck since being drafted, it's a shame, because I actually think he could be a very good starter.

I was very impressed by Hayward. He let the game come to him and stuffed the stat sheet. 8 points, 5 boards, 2 assists, 2 steals, and a block.

Orton set a pick on McRoberts then boxed him out, McBob put a forearm in Orton's back and budged him off position, Orton didn't like it and turned around and kinda bearhugged him. A little like shoving elbow if you wanna be a stickler. David Harrison Jr., like I said. Real light stuff, no reason to toss either of em.

After the play both of them grabbed each other. McRoberts shoved Orton back using his forearm, Orton tried to retaliate and missed. Both were seperated. It wasnt even ejection worthy. Just 2 big guys held then shoved each other (not like either budged much after shoves) and it was over. If you saw a replay you would reply literally "Thats it?".

The sick pass to Rolle on the cut earlier, then the crossover dunk by Stephenson. I really didn't expect him to be such a willing and creative passer. His handle's still too sloppy to be a point, but it's worth pursuing based on today's results.

I'm not trying to argue Harangody over Blair. I'm just making a comparison to how both were drafted way later than they should have been, do to questions about their physical abilities at the NBA level.

Both guys were 1st round draft picks, that got drafted in the 2nd round. Harangody will be a solid NBA player, and will be better than most of the guys drafted ahead of him in the 1st round (just like Blair).

When a guy averages 23/12 in D1 College hoops... the guy can ball. Take a look at the some of the guys drafted before him, and it's laughable.

I never saw Harangody as first rd talent. High 2nd rd imo. He went lower than I expected him to go tho. Harangody can ball I just think his potential/upside is limited. He can make the best out of what he has which is why I think he can be a good role player. Today he did a good job stretching the defense.
