Draft Express Profile

Livio Jean-Charles gives the Spurs a guy with a Kevin Durant-like body who can line up at either forward spot. At the Nike Hoop Summit, he positively shined, leaving with one of the best performances in the history of the event, scoring 27 and grabbing 13 boards.

He is a defensive minded tweener 4 (he loves to block dunks) with a developing offensive game, though he's already above average around the basket with a knack for working the offensive boards.

Tony Parker and Boris Diaw certainly vouched for LJC (Parker especially because of his association with Asvel) and though many of us wanted a player we were more familiar with, we've also learned not to doubt PATFO and their talent scouts.

Wojnarowski sees it as a money-saving move for SA, which makes a lot of sense, especially if we are looking to add a free agent 3 or 4 this offseason.

What do you say, Spurs fans?
