I have no idea why this is the first public workout for Jordan Eglseder, but I sure hope all of the NBA decision-makers stick around to watch this afternoon's workout.

Making the case for Eglseder: At 7-feet, 280 pounds nobody is going to push him around ... He earned All-Tournament honors at the Portsmouth Invitational after averaging 14 points and 10 rebounds per game ... He drained two 3-pointers and scored 14 pts vs. Cole Aldrich and Kansas... I love big white centers, especially when they help me make money when I bet on their team in the NCAA tournament.

Honestly, though, I don't see why a guy like Omar Samhan (and maybe even Ogilvy) is getting second round hype and nobody mention Eglseder - he was pretty solid for three seasons at Northern Iowa and performed well enough in the NCAA tournament.

Most lopsided matchup: 6-foot-5 Manny Harris versus 5-foot-7 Tajuan Porter - I guess the thinking is that if Porter can play well against a guy as big as Harris that he might be able to cut it in the NBA, but it would have made a lot more sense to match him up with Randlo in my opinion.

Best matchup: Eglseder! Ogilvy! It's the Future Of The D-League Live From The Nets Practice Facility!
