2016 Liberty Ballers Community Big Board No. 20: Vive la France

New, comments

France's Isaia Cordinier is the 19th man off (on?) the board.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports
Late-first target and French sensation Isaia Cordinier snagged the No. 19 slot on the Community Big Board, winning comfortably with 31 percent of the vote. It was the largest margin of victory in a while, with his next closest competitor (Skal Labissiere) coming in second place with 18 percent of the vote.

Cordinier is probably more beloved in this community than around much of the hoops world, but he's a solid candidate to be selected by the Sixers if they keep both their picks at 24 and 26. Bryan Colangelo has expressed his desire not to overload the roster with developing players, and the ability to stash Cordinier makes him an attractive prospect when considered in conjunction with his skills on the court.

The latest entry to the competition has been a bit of a divisive name in back-room LB chats; Malik Beasley can certainly shoot the rock, but questions remain about how much he can do aside from that. Still, floor-spacing is a premium trait for a team loaded in the front court, and Beasley should be able to do that from day one.

Perhaps you fancy one of the big men left who have dropped well below where their talent otherwise dictates? I feel like we've been speculating about that for about half these posts now. Fire away!
