I know that I should have drafted at least 3 centers by now (last pick)... but I was hoping I can get a decent center at the end... who should I got with?
Ratliff: bench, but will give me blocks
Brezec: with Okafor and May healthy won't play enough minutes
Foster: nothing except boards
Zo: with Shaq playing in regular season mode, can do some damage too
Dampier & Diop: should I even bother?
Nene: with Elson gone, he should be the Geico man for Camby/K-Mart if he stays healthy himself
Diogu: I saw him go in 10-11 round in several drafts
Blount: can be decent
Tsakalidis: with Grizz playing small ball (Swift, Warrick, A.Johnson) not a safe pick
R.Swift/Petro/Collison - probably no...
Could you guys please let me pick the best bigman available?
It'd be between Brezec, Nene, and Dice. Although for your team, you have absolutely no blocks apart from AK47. Zo would definately help in that regard. I'd take Zo or Ratliff in that case. Those are the five I'd consider.
Boston does not have any defensive presence in the paint besides Ratliff, so he could play major minutes even if he comes off the bench (actually he's been playing with the starters in the intrasquad scrimmages)... Nene is an intruiging option but if Camby and K-Mart get their 30mpg all he has is 36mpg that he'll split with Evans and Najera...
I might take a gamble on Robert Swift, he proved decent in limited minutes last season. With your last pick in the draft you wanna draft somebody who has good potential (swift) or draft for an area of need. Somebody already mentioned blocks might be a weak area for you, and I agree. So, therefore you might take Alonzo or Diop. But I would go for potential in Robert Swift.
