Studying Petrie's best work has been making lemonade out of very talented but temperamental players like C-Webb, Bonzi Wells, etc. While ruffle-soother Adelman might not be around, McCants was at one point the next MJ at UNC. It seems as McCants' name has been mentioned in a lot of Kings rumors for a while so I think he is someone Petrie has targeted. He can fill and its asking a lot for K-Mart to put up 35 a game. I don't believe he can be any more of a ballhog than Salmons.
He's coming off of microfracture surgery his first year, so he really has been in the league about as long as Hawes. Boning up on some Youtube clips, shoots above a 40% clip from 3 and can finish above the rim in traffic. Granted half of his dunks seemed against the Kings, he has upside which I cannot say about the ginormous dome of Mr. Candace Parker. To find a team that actually thinks it needs Sheldome because of Al Jeff's injury is pure genius. Only downside is trading the classy Candace for Khloe Kardasian courtside (more Magoofs style anyway.)
How come the name Blake Griffin never comes up on this site? I know point guard seems like the biggest need with the ineptitude of Beno but when you have the worst record, doesn't anybody think of the consensus #1 prospect especially given the uncertainty of whether Rubio comes out? I was thinking Griffin as bust but watching some clips he does have a certain athleticism and a healthy bulk. Is he more Dwight Howard or Glenn Robinson? Should the Kings get him if they get #1?
