(edit: this looks like Nike Hoops Summit where other prospects were also. Just thought this picture was funny)




And for the record, his wingspan is 7'9 (longer than Yao Mings height).  Bamba would have the longest wingspan in the NBA tied with Gobert. Horford wingspan and nerlens Noel is 7'0

I think this was at the Nike Hoops Summit where Team USA was playing the "World Team", so there were other studs like Porter Jr, Knox, Carter Jr, Duval,  and Sexton. Was probably a god place for him to be to check out some talent.

The future requires finding the guy who can defend the Greek Freaks, the Towns, the Embiids, the Zingers, the Durants.   

Bamba could be the dude.

But whoever it will be is not currently on our roster.

Danny's thoughts: "The guy looks great, but he's just not undersized enough for our system."

 I don't normally draft tall guys, but when I do I prefer them to have 8 foot wingspans.
