I see him more as a Nick Collison type player. Grab some rebounds, provide some hustle, and play some body-D. Hopefully he turns into that kind of role player

I said this when we first drafted Colton.
I really like his game.
He's not a scorer, but he is a physical guy.
Not afraid of contact.
I just wish he picked 45 as his number.
So we can call him COLT 45

I haven't watched the game, but sounds like he could be something like Perk.
Except for the part where he's not nearly as good, and is also 5 years older than Perk was when he entered the league.

Rich man's Jason Collins.
When a player picked 53rd turns into a Jason Collins, it's a bonus - so I'll take that. If you've stuck around the league for 12 seasons, you must be doing something right.

i didnt see the physical play but like that it happened.  I think Iverson is a keeper for that simple fact that it gives us a physical big to wear some guys down.  And at 2nd round he'd be a steal

He's currently somewhere between where teenage Perk was upon arrival and what Perk was at his peak.  Yeah, because he's older than Perk was in getting to the NBA he's probably behind what Perk was at 24.  But who has the higher ceiling?  I don't know yet.

The thing I liked most about Iverson, his shoes.  Those were sweet.

The main knock against Perk was that he was poor shape. That's something that's easy to fix when you're 19 and still growing into your body. If you're 25, you probably aren't going to physically transform overnight.

Nick Collison is a fantastic, underrated player.

If we got a Nick Collison type with the 53rd pick that would be incredible.
