Thats what im saying. I guess the downside is that hes a big man with possible lingering foot problem. At 1, hes too risky. At 5? Sounds like a gamble worth taking. Then trade Kanter.
I can't help but think of Greg Odom. I feel Ebiid has shown enough as far as injuries go the last little bit to have major concerns. Especially with his size.
I agree he does have so much potential though, so it's really tough to pass on him at 5. Potential that could really help this franchise take that next step. But if we draft him and he never plays and is constantly injured, then that will set us back at least another year or two. High risk, high reward player.
