    I saw Pat Burke in a pre draft combine tournament. He was the best big man in that tornament the day I went to watch him play.

    Also: Pat Burke, The Only Irishman To Play In The NBA

    Interesting tid bits.

    Also:

    Europe[edit]
    Burke was a EuroLeague champion with Panathinaikos in the 1999-00 season, and he also helped the "Greens" to win three consecutive Greek League, titles from 1999 to 2001. In Europe, Burke also played with the Spanish clubs Tau Ceramica, Gran Canaria and Real Madrid, and Maroussi in Greece. He helped Real to the final of the ULEB Cup (now called EuroCup) in 2004, and to the Spanish League title in 2005.

    In November 2007, Burke signed with the Russian team Khimki.[2] Burke helped Khimki win their first Russian Cup title. He averaged 8.2 points and 5.2 rebounds per game, in 211 career games played over all of the different European leagues that he competed in. In 2008, he moved to the Polish club Asseco Prokom Sopot,[3] and he helped the team to win the league's title.

    At 45 years old and already with NBA experience, I doubt Burke is eligible to be drafted.

    And to be honest, I think he'd be a bust with the #6 pick.

    I'd rather take a gamble on Dan Langhi.

    Well, when he was here, he was a total sideshow...

    You don’t get 21/9/3 at the college level not having talent and shooting 50+ from 3 point range and 80+ from the free throw line shows great touch. That’s more than “hitting an occasional 3”

    I hope that's not the case. I would hate to see Barrett end up in LA.

    I am afraid there will be a scenario where Barrett falls to us, and because he's too good of a talent we take him, and his natural position in the NBA ends up at SF. I am almost praying the Lakers get him if he does "drop."

    Sorry, but if Barrett happens to be at 6, you take him and don't look back.

    So in that scenario, do you resign Oubre? I have been debating that. Maybe if this happens, you roll with the SFs we got and spend free agent money on PG and PF?

    Barrett falling to #4 works too well for the Lakers. That would make their pick much more valuable in a trade, which is rumored to be their plan to add talent to help Lebron right away. That pick then might interest New Orleans, if they want to open up talks with them involving Anthony Davis again. Even if New Orleans isn't interested, more teams will call about Barrett than Garland, Culver, White, or anyone else that is projected to be there.
