Kito draft roundup

As the NBA draft nears, we'll likely see many more mock drafts. The latest from SBNation has Oakland center Keith Benson going as the final lottery pick, No. 14 to the Houston Rockets, if for no other reason than "The No. 14 pick seems to be the right time to play mid-major darts."
A Bleacher Report story considered how Benson might fit with the Minnesota Timberwolves:
"Benson has all the qualities an NBA team could want from a center. He has great height and length as he is 6'11" with a 7'2" wingspan. He is a very good rebounder and not only relies on his length for a rebound, but his leaping ability, as well.
"He has fantastic footwork in the post and above-average body control. Benson can finish around the basket with his left or his right hand. He can use the glass for his shots or he can dunk the ball with authority; he does both well and in the right situations."
Corey from Golden Grizzlies Gameplan wrote a sendoff piece for Benson for Ballin' is a Habit.
