No Updates On Sacre at the Draft Combine

No Updates On Sacre at the Draft Combine. The lack of any social media at event keeps us waiting

Finding a Niche For: Bismack Biyombo

Any scouting report must start with Biyombo's dimensions, which are downright freakish. He measured a 7-7 wingspan (which would rank fifth longest in our expansive database) at the Nike Hoop Summit, despite standing just 6-7 ¾ without shoes. No player of record has ever measured a wingspan that is nearly 12 inches longer than his actual height—the closest is Jason Maxiell, who is 6-5 without shoes with a 7-3 ¼ wingspan. He also sports a chiseled 243-pound frame (4.8% body fat) that he should have no problem putting additional weight onto. .... What makes Biyombo so interesting, though, is his willingness to utilize his physical tools. He plays the game with incredible emotion (think Joakim Noah or Kevin Garnett), often putting opposing players and teammates in harm's way with his desire to make his presence felt. He competes on every possession, often to the point of physical exhaustion, something that will need to be honed. Still, it's an extremely desirable trait in a prospect. .... Once he catches the ball in the paint, Biyombo usually has one thing on his mind: dunk. He can take off from incredible distances (well outside the restricted area) and still finish plays because of his sheer length and explosiveness. He absolutely crushes the rim any opportunity he gets.

I think the Warriors are going to rue the day they passed up on Joakim Noah for Brandan Wright too.

-- Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress in an interview with GSoM way back on October 8th, 2007 Noah thinks Cleveland sucks? Wait till he gets a load of Chris Mullin's draft history. What if the Warriors had Noah instead of Wright?

Report: Thunder Like Rubio; Nobody Knows What Is Going On

The latest out of J. Givony is that the Thunder are honing in on Rubio, which is the opposite of what we were hearing earlier. Therefore, the only logical conclusion is that nobody knows what is going on with the Thunder.
