Cousins has already said he wants Sac to draft WCS.

As a UK Fan, I want him on the Kings. The only problem is that dot-head is phukking retarded.

Center is one of the only spots Nugs think they have a long term starter at


Winslow at 4 would be a terrible pick for the nugs. Either Russell or porzingis should be available and then WCS would be a better pick for the Knicks than Winslow and mudiay/Mario might be as well. Knicks don't have the luxery of taking a super role player and if they do it should be WCS as a big over a non shooting or ball handling sg

If he falls to 10, I'll take him in Miami easily.

He's one of a kind, and he's going to be a special player in the league.

No big man has ever recorded a quicker time in the lane agility drill, which assesses body control and change of direction ability. And with a 147-inch maximum vertical reach, few bigs even come close to Cauley-Stein's length.

I love that athleticism is literally just reach and quickness, according to that chart.

Anyway, Sacramento is the PERFECT spot for WCS. They have the scoring, they just need a guy that goes balls-to-the-wall and only really cares about D. Perfect compliment to Cousins, and the team as a whole.

He played 94% (105 out of 112) of his games in his three years of college (before medication) and his health history scares teams off?

I call a bluff.

I still believe Sacramento takes him.

Quote:
Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins might have identified the frontcourt partner of his dreams. The Kings have the sixth pick in the upcoming NBA Draft, and Kentucky center Willie Cauley-Stein might be available there. According to ESPN's Ryen Russilo, Cousins would like to play with him.

Sacramento fans must love this idea. Cousins has improved immensely on the defensive end, but having a true rim protector would be a game-changer for the Kings. Cauley-Stein would seem to fit extremely well in George Karl's run-and-gun system, as he is athletic and capable of starting fast breaks. This isn't just a case of one Kentucky guy hyping up another -- the two of them would actually make a scary, potentially great tandem.

WCS at the 5 with Cousins at the 4? Imagine Cousins playing PF

Hate to rain on the parade, but I don't trust his health OR ability. A great kid; I hope he proves me wrong.

im not saying its a pointless measurement, but if lane agility tells us that mason plumless is more agile than a young dwight howard, i dont see it being very meaningful
