    I like him, but a couple Qs:

    1) He’s listed as PF/SF – is he big enough to play PF in the NBA? That’s what the Suns would be drafting him to play, I assume.

    2) Is he expected to be available at pick #13?

    3) If both he and Tristian Thompson were available at #13 (yeah right) – who should the Suns select?

    If both he and Tristan were available I’m taking Tristan. Tristan has a bigger wingspan, is more athletic, and although it may take a few more years to develop him, I think he has a higher ceiling. Go Suns.

    Like the use of “Genesis” by Justice in the video. I always thought that would be a great song for “the players to come out to” given the epic drop and the whole phoenix.genesis thing. Cheers!

    I would probably take Tristan in that situation since Marcus is such a tweener, but I don’t really think he will be available then anyway.

    @KLS: I actually think he’s more of a three. He definitely calls himself a three. I think he’ll go 9th to Charlotte or 11th to Golden State. But if he and Tristan were available, I would go with Tristan as well.
