shotblocker extraordinaire, as long as Drumr can keep his shot attempts down, this is a solid pick.

Defined by terrific shot blocking ability, Okpala is a talented defensive guy, with one thing to point to offensively- his efficiency at the rim. He won't be one to rack up the stats outside of the blocks and steals columns, but he figures to be more of a switchy role player, a useful one for sure. Maybe a James Johnson type guy?

Going to be a scary defensive team in Cleveland.

That's the idea hopefully. I think Payton, Holiday, KZ, Collins, Okonoboh is a hell of a defense. I've got a good deal for some offense coming down and we can go into FA just focusing on role players we need.

GM Interview
"I'm extremely happy to have a rookie with such a good defensive foundation. We think when he's fully developed he'll be able to guard 2-4 and will be extremely efficient at the rim. Maybe he'll develop a shot over time, but that's not his current role."
