Last year Detroit took Greg Monroe after we took Udoh. That bothered alot of ppl here on GSOM. This year (from reading Detroits blogs on Biyombo) they could easily go with the big defensive specialist. And that would leave us with an angle of revenge. By taking the next more well rounded big in Jeremy Tyler. Tyler has the same size as Enes Kanter and was touted as one of the biggest names in high school until he made his decision to go overseas. He made some bad choices and learned some tough lessons.
Hindsight is 20/20 and we will never know who was worthy or not until these guys play a few years in the NBA. I really think this guy is going somewhere in the 10-20 range. worst case would be late 1st round.. Lacob and co. seem committted to winning next year and going for the 8th seed. Taking Tyler would seem like a awesome backup to Udoh for our center position!! Udoh comes out and then this huge man child steps in..... I think getting a center is the most important long term issue on our team. More than the ellis debate even. Ellis can net us another guard in a trade later (if needed).
I know it seems like a reach , but, if we took him, what do u guys think are the pros and cons to this?
btw, his numbers in Japan league looked something like this per 36 mins. 21 points 14 rebounds but he seemed heavy on fouls and heavy on turnovers but given his age.. geez, this guy may still be growing..
