Never seen or heard of Magnum Rolle but after watching his youtube video I'm very intrigued by the pick. He has the touch of a Channing Frye but can also hold his own down low. Has plenty of nice dunks on the clip...

Guy looks agile and really long. Consistent looking shot. I mean if Solomon Jones can be in the league, why can't this guy.

He look better than Solo to me already! (Then again I probably dislike Solo the most here on this board :-p)

This is a small sample size, but it looks like he could have a bit of cockiness in him (several times he gestured to opposing players after making a move on them). There were a lot of oops/dunks in the video but a few nice moves as well. He certainly looks more capable than Solo (especially in the area of scoring - but I doubt we ever ran any plays for him).

Dang, that video makes him look pretty darn good. He's long and athletic and seems to have some nifty footwork around the hoop. I hope he can make it.

Good footwork. You see that dropstep around the 1 minute mark? Very few guys have that move down so smoothe. Love that hook shot too and I agree, he appears to be MUCH more polished offensively than Solo.

Thanks for the video, he looks like a good energy big. We already have McBob for that role though. Hopefully this means the end of McBob.

I noticed that as well. However, I'm not sure if that's good or bad at this point. If he's passionate about the game and tries to fire up his teammates, I'm OK with it. If he's a jackhole about it and worries more about trying to get getting on ESPN replays, that's not something I'm keen about. I don't know much about his character, but I haven't heard anything negative about it yet (Stephenson on the other hand...). I liked his interview, and he seems to be a likable enough guy.

Welcome :)

I think Rolle is more of an energy backup C (with little more muscle added)

And McRoberts is a skilled energy PF... don't see why the'd have to cancel each other out...

If anyone we should see the end of it should be the physically weak + low bball IQ Solo...

He turned down going to Portsmith combine... and then they went postal on him from what I saw....

Even if he fails, I vote for him having the greatest name ever. Sounds like he should be in a Clint Eastwood movie.

Yeah, Portsmith is something that most players should go to- if you don't get offers from the NBA you get some good European offers since there are a bunch of scouts. I would have blasted Rolle, but he was apparently good enough to get drafted anyway.

Although its good to see some players who went there get drafted (Hamady N'Diaye for one)

What caught my eye was he actually seemed courteous to other players. The tap on the back at 0:17, being careful not to land on the dude at 0:59

Aside: As cool as watching 30 dunks in a row is, I really wish highlight videos creators would give occasional focus to defensive prowess. This guy's tall and can catch an alley oop. I get it. Lotsa non-NBA guys can do that. Give me a defensive series where he out positions a guy in the post and forces him into a bad contested jumper or a turnover. Show me a rebound he had no business getting. (After rewatching, I did like the heads up play at 1:50 where he intercepted the inbound pass.)

If Magnum Rolle can add 20 lbs and play solid defense he could be the steal of the draft, IMO

Honestly when I saw those clips I thought I saw a little bit of JaJaun Johnson.

Of course I am always a sucker for giving a college kid a shot on a team and it seems to me that Solo is done.

Appears to do basically the same things as Solo, maybe just a bit better.

Not to mention, a much cooler name.

Cooler Name + Slightly better talent (Based on that video) > Poor work ethic

Magnum > Solo

The End.

agreed, and I think it is very doable too, especially for somebody his size.

I didn't see it like that. It looked like he was just being friendly/making sure the other guy was alright. In that second one the guy took a dive, so it looked to me like he was just checking on him. I didn't get the vibe that he was trying to show anyone up. His game was doing that for him already :-p
