Pick 19: The first international player is taken, but not really. Orlando takes Andrew Nicholson from St Bonaventure, and Jay Bilas immediately launches into another detailed physical profile. I'm teetotal, yet even I'm getting drunk off of it now.

After Bilas is finished, we cut immediately to a commercial, which means Nicholson mustn't be here. (Seriously. Why wouldn't you go?) Upon returning, Jeff Van Gundy, unaware that the broadcast has started, can be overheard making an overdue joke; "his last name should be Meyers and his first name should be Leonard." I agree.

Andrew Nicholson

Nicholson scored the ball extremely well in his rookie season, showing terrific mid-range and post-up games for a rookie, and yet struggled so much on the other end that he almost fell out of the rotation at points after the trade deadline. Considering he lost these minutes to Tobias Harris, whose defensive problems have already been covered, this is a bit of a problem. Nicholson doesn't have the size or athleticism to be dominant defensively, and even average will be a struggle. He needs to get both stronger and quicker, as he's both outmuscled on the interior and blown past on the switch far too easily. His offensive efficiency, mid-range J, footwork and jump hooks will nonetheless keep him around for years, but don't settle for Othella Harrington. Aim higher.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
