Aminu isn't as gifted athletically as LeBron, albeit Aminu is athletic. If he can't play the 3 then he's in trouble. He's a project who has a high-potential bust potential. Now, if he develops a jumper his ceiling becomes much higher.

What's Indiana going to do with him and Granger on the roster? George can probably play some SG, but I figured taking a big, and either keeping him or trading down to get Bledsoe or Bradley later in the draft made more sense.
