Default Omar Samhan

What's going on with the big man? Dominated the NCAA tourney and had a 21/11 senior season with 3 blocks. One of the more skilled big man in the post in the country. I saw he pulled out of the Portsmouth Invitational because of a groin injury and wasn't at the predraft measurements. He's had workouts with the Wizards and Heat, not sure who else. Is there a reason he's not showing up in mocks at all?

Cause he's unathletic and fat. He needs to get much faster/quicker to think about the NBA.

He's lost 60 lbs since he's entered college and says he could lose more if asked. Just saying he's twice as skilled as some of the bigs you see in the 2nd round of these mocks. Caracter, Pittman, Ndiaye...can't speak on the Euros.

If the Clippers weren't so deep up front (Kaman, Jordan, Blake + possibly Rhino, if he resigns, Sofo if he comes over and possibly #8), I wouldn't mind drafting him at #54, either Samhan or Art Parakhouski from Radford, who averaged 21/13 (granted it was against the Big South conference mainly)

Thats the issue right there. If he needs to be asked to lose weight or stay in shape, then he's an NBA liability, and a very good reason for not being the material that most teams are looking for.

I'm with you on the skill part on Omar, just not the overall work ethic. He'll play in the NBA, just don't see him going sooner than 26.
