    Find me a stat that says Andrea Bargnani was a great rebounder for his size.
    If you include potential non-human animals and statues of that size; you could probably do it.

    I'd trust the statue to rebound better than Bargnani.

    Austria has not qualified to the Eurobasket, but with Poeltl being part of the team that may change in the future. The young center had 22 points and 9 rebounds on 10/12 shots in 24 minutes of action.

    Love the way he runs the floor. Soft touch around the rim. Can move his feet well. Has nice bounce. This guy worse Casey is he is an average starting Center in the league.

    Yeah, once he grows into his game a bit, he should be a solid 4th/5th starter. The touch around the rim is very unproven against NBA strength, but he should get there as he fills out, and his quickness (which I've argued should actually allow him to be able to run out as both backup 4 and 5 in a three man big rotation if need be) is definitely nice, hopefully it holds up as he adds strength.

    As time goes by more centers will be more agile than strong. Agility will be more important than strenght. Also I don't think his development will take as along as you think. The guy is a center.

    Oh, he's definitely already a solid backup big. Which is great - having guys on rookie scale contracts who can fill out a rotation is crucial.

    But he definitely needs to add strength just to get to the point where he can finish inside consistently. Not to bulk up to where JV got to (even JV should not have bulked up that much), but his finishing inside when you compare between D-League or college competition versus the bigger, faster and stronger NBA competition is night and day. It's part of why his summer league performance and international games are encouraging, but I can't pencil him in as ready until I see him manage the same against better competition.
