They both are big bodies that work hard and are fundamentally sound


They aren't really guys you throw the ball into to go to work with their back to the basket, but they set good picks, get offensive rebounds, and in a help defense situation will take a pass and finish with late help coming to contest. They also both have little hook shots that they've been working on for years if they get the ball deep enough in the post, and Wilkins spreads the floor a LITTLE with his ability to knock down a 15 footer. He also finishes decently at the rim.

That is why I said Huff is a net + over any of our bigs with the possible exception of Wilkins. And that is including all Wilkins' hustle on the boards, setting picks, etc. Huff still might come out ahead. But defensively he is way behind of everybody, though he obviously does have a knack for blocking shots.

And if Jack can hit more than 65% of his FTs that would be a huge improvement from last year.

Bonzie is a very good player. I'm not saying we have anybody who will completely shut him down, but if there is one player we DON'T want to put on him it is Huff. Total mismatch. Like putting Tobey on Branden Dawson. The key is matching his quickness and shiftiness if you can't completely match his length. Wilkins is probably our best bet even though he is a little undersized.
