    @Randolphkeys since you are the Saint Mary's guy, what's been going on with Jock Landale so far this season?

    Ooooh, that is an emerging big man who should be on the NBA radar. Last season, he was a 6'11 sixth man who was still growing into his frame. St. Mary's has a lot of solid shooting, but they needed somebody who will draw a double team. So far, it looks like the big Aussie is going to be that guy who draws double teams. He has been working with the Australian national program, didn't make the Boomers Olympic squad, but he and the St. Mary's point guard will likely make Boomer teams in the future.

    Next level, he needs to show more outside of the low block. The worry is that he doesn't have NBA shooting range. However, he makes buckets at the college level. I need to see him matched up against skilled bigs with an NBA or Euroleague ceiling because he is destroying the competition so far.

    Yup...I just saw a C averaging 20 points a game on 75% shooting and thought that was ridiculous. Then saw he played for St. Mary's so I figured I'd ask.

    Looks like he is a really good FT shooter, so he has to have a decent shot...maybe he just isn't asked to show outside range if his purpose is to draw doubles on the block to get shooters open?

    I'm guessing Gonzaga will be the most skilled team he sees this year until the tournament. Will be interesting to see how he does there.

    I think this is the guy the Cavs should look to target. He moves extremely well for a 7'2 guy, good hands, good lob target and has a lot of potential.
    Has great form, already shooting 3's albeit with a small sample size 5-8 for the season so far.
    Can put the ball on the floor, looks quick for his size and to me, he looks like a "poor man's Porzingis.
