Player to Watch: Bismack Biyombo
This Congo-born power forward will be a name on the rise in the next two-and-a-half months and that I promise you. I've seen this kid play and while he is very raw offensively, you won't find many prospects with his athleticism and measurables- Biyombo recently left his Spanish club team to play at the Nike Hoop Summit and on the initial day, the buzz was all about him- measuring in at 6'9" with shoes and a ridiculous 7'7" wingspan. A big game against the likes of some of the top players on our 2012 Big Board- Anthony Davis (Kentucky), James McAdoo (North Carolina), and Rakeem Christmas (Syracuse)- could be mean a even bigger climb for Biyombo.
After all, he's just 18 years old and having a great season for Fuenlabrada averaging 6.5 points, 5 rebounds and 2.3 blocks in 17 minutes of action. Look for him to be a top 20 pick in the Draft.
