Initially, I was surprised by the pick. It is an enormous risk both for BC and the organization. I did not think Colangelo would take a 7'0 project from Europe for a variety of reasons that I have posted before. The Toronto fan base is so poisoned against these kinds of picks I just think it's verging on a no-win scenario for both the kid and the team.
The day after, I am basically ambivalent about the pick. This guy is years away from contributing, so I don't see any need to get worked up about it. I do hope they leave him in Europe for a couple of years and bring him along slowly cause it's obvious that he isn't ready to play an 82-game NBA schedule. If they hurry him over and he looks shaky it's going to get really ugly, really fast. Bringing him over in 2 or 3 years when he is bigger/stronger/more skilled, his English is better, the team is better, and he is surrounded by another rookie or two to take some of the pressure off of him makes a lot of sense to me.
