    Search him. He's name is Jonas Valanciunas. He's from Lithuani and will torn 19 this year. He's already putting big numbers in the Euroleague
    He's currently #2 on DraftExpress. I like him, but I'm just not sure how he fits with Amir and Davis. That would be one VERY skinny frontline and one that would get posted up for years. Maybe we can hook them up with Rashard Lewis' doctor.

    Valanciunas had a nice battle versus Kanter last season. He's a real tough dude. Some people are higher on him than others, but that's just the nature of this year's draft.

    Drafted by Colangelo upon request of the 76ers and then traded to seal the deal.

    None of those guys have anything to do with Bryan Colangelo. The only one he did select he did so with the purpose to trade him to a team who wanted him. I can name you 100 2nd round American born players who never even played one NBA regular season game but I don't expect a cookie for it.



    No because I don't want to taint a good thread with this nonsense. This is more a social issue than a basketball issue in my honest opinion.
    I knew some of them were Babcock. And did not realize the last one was directly for the 76ers. Add Bargnani and it seemed to represent a culture in the Raptors that has been consistent, if not in the last 2 drafts. The explanation, that had been brought out in past, was that it was often hard to get US players to come to Canada. Therefore maybe the answer was in Europe, the South Americas or elsewhere. Even bringing in Turkuglu was partially due to the large Turkish population in Toronto. They felt it would make an easier transition to playing here.

    while they are admittedly me making a joke, my honkie comments are also a satirical reference to the idiocy of alot of the "euro" comments..

    despite the thread title, this has less to do with the draft and more to do with honkies.

    The issue is that they do not show up. So under the possibility that you could find a steal is that you might not even get a player.
    They're all second round picks. Most second round picks don't last in the NBA, if they make it at all. No matter where they are from.

    If you're really bored I recommend looking up ANY team's draft history in the 2nd round and let me know how many of those player's worked out and had good NBA careers.

    There was no clear #1 consensus pick in 2006. He was high on many mock boards. Would you have preferred the next Larry Bird, Adam Morrison?
    everytime i hear that name, i imagine smitch and colangelo talking, and smitch being like "bro.... dude cries"

    actually no, colangelo was the one that hyped him up, and that's why his stock rose.
