2011 NBA Mock Draft, No. 7 Pick, Bismack Biyombo, Congo, Detroit Pistons
A Ben Wallace clone from the Congo, Biyombo could team with versatile rookie Greg Monroe to give the Pistons the makings of a versatile front line. An excellent shot-blocker and rebounder with a tremendous wingspan, Biyombo is raw and unpolished offensively and only averaged 6.3 ppg in Spain's Euroleague.
Biyombo represents a huge gamble for any team that takes him with his limited offensive skills. Will he turn out to be another Nene and get better and better as the Nuggets star has? Or will he be closer to Charlotte's 7-foot DeSagana Diop from Senegal who averaged 1.3 ppg and 2.5 rbg this season?
If the Pistons get cold feet and decide to pass on Biyombo, they can opt for a safer big man option in Lithuania's Jonas Valanciunas, a 6-11 center with a good touch and solid athleticism. Colorado's athletic guard Alec Burks, a 6-6 sophomore who played the point in college but player either guard spot in the NBA, could also emerge as an option.
