Lewis and Keon Clark

We've discussed in passing in these parts previously Petrie's proclivity for specific kinds of players, and I think we'd collectively agree there are most certainly Petrie players in this draft.

To Wit:

The passing Big Man
Divac, Miller, Hawes, represented in this draft by Kevin Love and Roy Hibbert

The penetrating, undersized, high scoring Guard
Bobby Jackson, Aaron Brooks (who Petrie was hot on last year), represented in this draft by D.J. Augustin

The scrawny, sweet shooting Wingman
Kevin Martin, Francisco Garcia, Quincy Douby, a position not really represented in this draft, which is probably a good thing, though Gordon is kind of close

The Pogo Stick Forward
Gerald Wallace (who isn't huge, and who has developed an overall game, but who still came to Sac fundamentally due to his athleticism and length), Keon Clark, Stromile Swift (who Petrie pursued pretty heavily a few off-seasons ago), represented in this draft by Anthony Randolph

The point to all of this, other than to bore even Pookey to death, is that I couldn't quite get comfortable with the idea of Randolph as a Petrie player. But the truth is Petrie likes those kind of guys. To me for all the talk of Bosh, Odom etc. right now the NBA player Randolph reminds me most of is Clark. Same svelte frame, same awkward but effective jump shot, same frustrating potential. That Clark has become so enigmatic (and that's being kind) off court makes the comparison a little taboo. But I think it's accurate and for whatever reason it makes me more comfortable with the thought of the Randolph selection.
