    Default Wesley Johnson or Aminu

    I know that everybody is looking for a PF with the 1st pick in the draft, I think that the pacers should go with best player available, it looks like the pacers are going to be drafting from 4th to 9th and we already talked about the big guys.

    In case the pacers have to make this decision who do you think could be the best player?

    Out of those I think I take the chance with Aminu. He think he bring more to the table, and has a great deal of potential. Love the length and athleticism.

    Wesley Johnson is a good player that really has emerged out of nowhere, he's athletic as well and looks to be a pretty good scorer, but I don't see him being anything more.

    Definetely on the fence with this one as Johnson is probably one of the most athletic in the draft, but Aminu's upside could be big time

    I picked Aminu because he is the best player right now, he is also bigger and can play inside and outside, his shot needs to get better but the guy is going to be a really nice player in the NBA, he is the closest thing to Lamar Odom that I have seen in a long time.

    I don't know enough about these guys to make the perfect choice. I will have to research some more. Thanks for posting this, it gets the dialogue going.

    Aminu seems to be a guy that can use his length, get to the rim and finish. An effective inside scorer and rebounder. I like his length, if he could defend the post well, I like what I see. I need to see more though than the Youtube vids to get a better feel for him. Can he shoot and can he improve his shot?

    I like Wesley's swagger and ability to get to the rim. He is a better outside shooter. If he could improve his shot and can get his own when he wants, I like what we get, but the feeling is Aminu has more of what we don't have. Length and rebounding ability.

    Trade the pick?

    I don't see much point in picking a small forward. Unless people think those guys could play the 4 on a full time basis.

    I disagree with this, the pacers need anything right now and they have to pick best player available, if they want a pf they can get him in the second round, there are going to be guys like Garcia, Udoh, Pittman, Varnado, Brackins and Ndiaye.

    I agree that you pick the best player available, but if they don't fit you trade the pick.

    Unless you think either of those guys could end up better than Granger, which I don't.

    Wesley actually reminds me of Danny, he is a better shooter(he is a pure shooter) and like Danny can't dribble for s***, Aminu is the better player right now but Johnson could be better in few years.
