“if you are mullin, will you draft for needs (pf/c) or for the best available player/talent? i think the past two years, mullin really screwed up by drafting on needs, ike and pob, instead of the best available players (granger, seflosha, marcus williams). he acutally has done better in the 2nd round because he was drafting the best available talent.”

He is definitely an intriguing option for the Warriors’ third pick of the draft. I’m not sure he’s perfect for Nellie. He has lost a lot of weight, but has he lost enough? Is he fit enough for Nellie ball? Harrington wasn’t, and he wasn’t fat like Big Baby.
Plus, Glen is undersized. That may not hinder him on offense, but it certainly will on defense. The Warriors need someone who can protect the basket and guard a post player (preferrably without any help). Can he do that?
I think he’s worth a try. By the time the Warriors pick at No. 46, there will be few as talented. I love his post game, his passion, his versatility. But the Warriors need size and skill down low, in someone who can keep up. I don’t know if he’s that guy.
