Which is why I think Bridgewater can still be a potential guy to take depending on attrition and how Deng plays out.
He wouldn't be an instant contributor, but a guy who come on strong and put in some good minutes similar to Storm Warren.
Deng really hasn't impressed at all this year in JUCO so I doubt we take him. Unless he really improved a ton since January this LINK
says he's averaging just 9 points and 7 boards a game.
Bridgewater would be an interesting "roll the dice" take. He can clearly play, but can he play against guys 6'8-6'9 in college? Being 6'5 is a huge drawback as we saw with Coleman playing the 4 this year BUT I have to say Bridgewater has a much better chance to be effective there because he's a much bigger body being 225ish.
Either way (taking Deng or Bridewater) means we have to get rid of a current player who isn't a senior. I will say if that person happens to be Courtney we should probably pickup Bridgewater, I think he would be at least as good of a player as Courtney is now as a freshman. The upside with Bridgewater is you get several years of development where as with Courtney he's already done and we know what we're getting. IF Collins is the one not around, I'm not so sure we get a big in Bridgewater or Deng. It would make a lot more sense to get a guard at that point because we would be left with only 4 guards in Hickey, Quarterman, Stringer and Morgan.
