I'm personally not a big Jamaal Franklin guy. He's a guy that can't shoot long range and is kinda ball dominant. Just what we don't need on a team with Carmelo, Felton, and Amare in my opinion.
I disagree with the above post on Dieng. At our position in the draft, realistically, we're not going to get a guy who's going to be a stud especially in this draft. Dieng is a rim protector with good rotations and with a pretty sweet jumper. Yea, he's never going to be a guy we can dump the ball into but he can shoot the midrange and will probably be able to give some good minutes - like a poor man's Ibaka.
If we can buy a first round pick, I say we also consider taking a flier on Steven Adams from Pittsburgh. He's raw as hell but apparently he's tested off the charts and has been killing it in workouts. There's no back to the basket guys here so trying out a guy with supreme athleticism and size is something I'd be very happy about. Apparently he's also showed much more game than he did in college.
