I wouldn't be surprised if Johnson's wingspan measures out around 7'. But yeah, Brewer is at least 6'8" but I've seen him listed at 6'9" and he's very long.

Either way, I think Johnson is an upgrade.

Ahh...I don't bother with mock sites except for seeing positioning. I tend to disagree with their analysis. And I liked the comparison because Eddie is my Temple boy.

Corey Brewer is listed as 6'9", but he measured almost 6'7" without shoes and almost 6'8" with shoes with a 6'8" wingspan and a 37" vert. I'd say Wes Johnson's measurements should be similar, albeit with a longer wingspan.

Wasn't aware Brewer's wingspan wasn't any longer than his height. He's just so skinny I assumed he had a 6'10"+ wingspan. Surely Wes Johnson's will measure out at at least 6'10". He's listed at 6'7", but could measure out closer to 6'6" in socks. I think the combine is tomorrow so we'll know all the official measurements then.

I don't think Minny will want Cousins at 4. They've got some nice bigs. I say they look to trade it, though Cousins will get picked with this pick.

I've been hearing alot that Morey might try and trade for that pick and we might get Cousins. more details will come as we come to our team's pick.

Interesting, that would be a nice setup in that case for the Rockets.

Demarcus Cousins has to come off the board here, right? Only thing holding them back is is it too early to give up on Hawes? And as a starter I would say yes. Here's another stat to chew on for this team. The Kings starting bigs shot 47.2 and 46.8 percent from the floor, neither even near 50%. Insert a big man who plays all of his time in the paint and you help the problem. You also get the inside-outside combo with him and Jason Thompson.

Cousins, best player available and Spencer Hawes is a big softy who plays outside. Though I think they'll have to trade one of Landry, Thompson, or Hawes for a backcourt player if they get Cousins. No point in keeping all 4 and trying to disperse minutes to them. It'll probably be Hawes or Thompson.

Cousins. The Kings definitely need an upgrade in their front court. Hawes, while a good player, hasn't really worked as well as the kings had probably hoped.

Cousins and Thompson is a great young core. Whoever said Hawes is useless is right, he's a big softy. Can't stand his game.

Cousins is a straight beast in the post. He's better than Hawes and Thompson and could fit nicely next to Landry. He can play the 4 as well, and that's probably his natural position on offense, but I can't see him guarding guys like Rashard Lewis, Jeff Green, etc. Either way, Sacramento would be dumb to pass on him.

Cousins has to be the pick. Thompson was already on the block last year, now they can move him for better wing depth, maybe another pick.

On sheer skills and ability I think Cousins is the #2 prospect after Wall. The immaturity and rep as a hothead may throw up some redflags, but I think a lot of that stuff's overblown, it isn't like he's committing armed robberies. He'll (hopefully) grow and mature as he ages. Those 2 and Turner are far, far above anyone else in the class in my opinion.
