Favors shouldn't be top 10. He's one of the least NBA ready guys from the draft. Cousins should be first/second imo. I'd also put Patrick Patterson there but he won't necessarily be able to show off what he has in Houston as long as there's Scola/Hill in the way. The top 6 look to get significant minutes from the start.

I doubt Ed Davis will finish in the Top 10 at the end of the season. I don't see him being effective for a few years to come.

really? he is a defensive presence, is really good at finishing around the rim and a very good rebounder. he also a nice jumper but he doesnt take jump shots.

I think he is too weak to get close enough to score. He may do well on defense, but I think he left college prematurely.

I was told his dad told him to leave so he could get into the league before the potential lockout.

I honestly love the defensive potential of Ed Davis I believe he can have the defensive skills of Big Ben and just play that role also this guy was mentored by Wallace as well if you look more into it since his Dad played at Virginia Union same time Wallace did

He does have great shot blocking ability, but I think he needs to gain at least 20 pounds of muscle to be effective. He will get pounded on the inside.

Gordon Hayward is on the cusp, not too bad I guess.

considering that Bosh is leaving Toronto? Bargnani doesn't rebound, this guy might even reach double figures in rebounding in a night in, night out basis for the Raptors if given the proper minutes.

he'll be the 5th option on the court for offense but he'll put up defensive and rebounding numbers for the Raps.

Aldrich is Ostertag lite or Eric Montross lol

he has absolutely no skills what so ever-

he has size, but that is far as it goes.

he is going to provide a HUGE defensive presence in the paint for OKC, watch.

i don't think he'll suck, i just think he'll be an average center at best. Eric Montross and Ostertag were average at best.

I just don't see any upside other than the fact he's a 7 footer with no skill.
