2011 NBA Draft Prospects: Could Bismack Biyombo Be Interior Force Rockets Need?

The Rockets will look long and hard at the available big man prospects in this week's NBA Draft, and one who might fall into their laps at No. 14 overall is Congo's Bismack Biyombo. Biyombo is about as extreme of a prospect as there is in this draft: the big man shows great defensive ability and rebounding skills, but his offensive game is so raw that it might be a complete liability to have him on the floor. He certainly doesn't lack for confidence though, as this recent profile from Scott Howard-Cooper shows:

So, do you believe you will lead the NBA in blocks?

"I do."

Will you lead the NBA in blocks?

"Yes."

Can you lead the NBA in rebounding?

"Yes, I will."

You will lead the NBA in rebounding?

"Yes. Of course. Hundred percent."

Well then!

I don't think there's any doubting that Biyombo can be a solid NBA player, but whether he's worth a lottery pick is debatable. He could be the next Dennis Rodman, or he could be the next Reggie Evans. It all depends on how well his offensive game develops.
