what would mozgov take?

what pick do you think? because if I am the g.m of a team and I was looking for a center I would want mozgov at least he has shown he is capable of producing in the nba. if your talking about 5-10 pick being used on bismack I would much rather have mozgov. looking at this from a strictly historical perspective except for ibaka you have to go back to mutumbo or olajuwon for an african center to be worth a 5-10 pick ,the risk is too great in my opinion to draft bismack so high

I think kahn in some regards takes too much cr-ap

and its not deserved. ok darko hasnt worked out as a number one pick should but clealy as of now he is better than diop or thabeet. if the ceiling on mozgov is a better moving more fluid darko { which I am not saying it is} and the potential risk for bismack is diop or thabeet, at what point do you take the safer bet? I honestly see a ton of potential in mozgov and thats from playing in the nba not overseas.

If Nene leaves, the starting

If Nene leaves, the starting C spot in Denver is Mozgov's to lose. I hope he actually develops under Coach Karl, he'll be the key to Denver staying relevant if Nene leaves. Hopefully he can undergo a Marc Gasol-type progression by getting in shape and becoming more aggressive.

Maybe a 5, but certainly not

Maybe a 5, but certainly not a 10, there isn't a player likely to be available with Mozgov's upside at that point in the draft, best to hedge bets against Nene leaving.

I think you need to feel for mozgov

so far he hasnt had a chance for consistent minutes and if nene doesnt leave who knows when he will, the nba is also about being lucky enough to be in the right position at the right time to get your opportunitys

That is a sad truth

That is a sad truth unfortunately, take Darren Collison for example; if CP3 doesn't go down with an injury there's no way Indiana make him their starting PG for the future.

Mozgov was of course

Mozgov was of course undrafted when he was elligible back in 2008 and when Donnie Walsh offered him a 3 year deal worth nearly $10 million, people wondered who he was. But like Landry Fields, the Knicks had found a hidden gem and even though Mosgov wasn't a regular part of the Knicks rotation, they were still reluctant to trade him but obviously did not want to give up an extra pick to maybe keep him.

I do wonder if the Knicks might draft somebody with nice upside at 17th in the draft and maybe look to get Mosgov back in a trade from Denver.

If we assume that Mosgov had a similar skillset as now a few years back then as say a 22 year old in this year's draft I'd put him top 10.
