@coords The next 5 players in my mock after the Kings pick are all big men. I just think at that juncture in the first, that all the best players available are big men. If Jaylen Brown falls to them, I believe he is the pick. I think Ellenson fits the best out of all those big men, and gives the Kings a stretch big that they lack.
Incredible length helps him as a defender and rebounder
Alters as many shots as he blocks
Terrific help side defender
Runs the floor well
Handles the ball well for his size
Right-handed hook shot
Needs to get stronger
Still learning to be a consistent low post scorer
Consistency with his jumper
Free throw shooting
Prone to foul trouble
Summary: Davis is loaded with ability and has not even scratched the surface on his potential, which is why he is a candidate to be the top overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Davis is not ready to be a major contributor right away, but not many guys his size are blessed with that type of athleticism, length, and versatility. There is potential for him to be a very special player at the next level if he continues to get stronger and develop his all-around game.
Player Comparison: A young Marcus Camby. Due to his size and length, Davis is a tremendous shot-blocker and rebounder like Camby has been his entire career. Davis is more skilled with the ball than Camby ever has been, but not quite the post scorer. That should come over time for Davis, who has greater upside than Camby did.
