LA LakersAaron Gordon, F, Arizona. Often compared to a young Blake Griffin. Insane athlete. Kobe will whip him into shape quickly.

 

In nba mock draft 2014 many sites says Lakers will get this guy. How good is he?

I don't watch many college basketball.

No player I like in College basetball I like turns all star level lol.

I liked Ben Mclememore last year when he was in Kanasas.

He doesn't do that well in the rookie season lol.

Do you think he will fit good in Lakers?

A mock draft pick at this point is a HUGE reach. We might end up with a top 10 pick, or we might end up with a 16-30 pick if we somehow make the playoffs. We could trade the pick, or we could trade for more picks.

I just can't pay attention to a mock draft this early.

LeBron James will NOT leave the Miami Heat.

We really need to go after a super athletic player and hopefully our high paid coaches and players develop him well. Gordon looks promising

Gordon may be a realistic target in the draft.

 

Blake Griffin is the player I think of when I see Gordon play.  Great athletic ability but his offensive skills need much refinement.

 

Major issue I see is he is just 6'9 BUT he is only 18 years old, will be 19 at the start of NBA training camp next year.  If he can grow another inch, that will go a long way for him.  I believe his wingspan was already at the level of Griffin's and had a better standing reach than him at the age of 18 compared to when Griffin measured out at the combine at age 21.

Not a huge fan of forward tweeners, their success rate is much lower than any other position.

He could be Blake griffin, Michael Beasley or worse Marvin Williams

At a generous 6-9 and likely 6-8 he needs to prepare himself as a SF

Im still praying for top 5 and a shot at one of the big 4

 Crazy part is that Gordon would of been the top prospect in the last 4-5 drafts lol

As he's only 18 if he grows another inch he'll be 6'10.   That pretty much changes him from being a tweener. 


 

I've always liked Steve Blake.

Agree, but at 6-8 with his athleticism and standing reach higher than Blake Griffin, i think he'll be really good. At worst, i think he could be a better version of Gerald Wallace.

Another combo forward that probably wont pan out in the NBA. Too small for the 4, doesn't have the handles and the shot for the 3. I'd pass.

If the Lakers end up having a top 5 pick and pick this guy, it shows you that the lakers have no idea what they are doing.


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

Would it be wrong to hope we're able to move Gasol and Meeks at the Draft day to get the picks in the later first round that would land us Gordon so we could pair him with Exum(if we draft him) ^_^

Who would want a player in a sign and trade that they can get on the market without giving up assets?
