Just doing some reading on Bismack Biyombo. 6'9" kid from Congo who is rising up draft boards -- Draft Express has him up to #8.
Some highlights from the Nike Hoop Summit here.
Lots of overseas guys looking good for the Top 10 now.
As long as the rumors aren't true about him being over 21, he could be a high draft pick. I guess people don't want to develop an older guy, even with his potential.
He has something like a 7' 7" wingspan. That's just nuts for a guy who is 6' 9".
I see him as a guy who should go mid-late first, but given his potential and the amount of guys staying in school, he could end up being a lottery pick. Whoever picks him has to have a lot of patience, because he'll need 2-3 years to be an impact player
