    After reading the "Jon Miller's Comments" thread it got me thinking. If you could add 1 player who is currently playing for another team to this years team who would it be?

    I know some obvious choices would be Wiggins, Randle, etc. but I want to really dig deep for who you think would be a perfect fit...

    My choice would be Kyle Anderson of UCLA. The dude is a 6-7 point guard that is a mis-match nightmare. He usually is playing in the post on D because of his size.

    Who in college basketball would you like to see in Fred's system and why?

    Joel Embiid. He may not be the best player in college basketball, but he would provide size and presence that we otherwise do not have.

    Joel Embiid. Offensive rebounds have killed us in all our losses.

    I don't know about currently playing, but if I could add one recent player to this team it would be Chris Babb.

    Is this a real question? It's Embiid and it's not even close. Were above average at everything except blocking shots and rebounding. We would be undefeated right now with Embiid.

    People aren't gonna like this answer but I'd say Doug McDermott.... size and a really solid 3 point shooter... We're missing that guy that forces the defense to have to stretch...

    Embiid of players this year.

    Cato for one previous ISU player to add to this group.

    I think Craig brackens would have thrived on this team.

    If we had Embiid we'd still be undefeated.

    Embiid is an excellent choice but he seems to get winded very easily... Do you think he would be as effective in the fast pace system Fred likes to run?

    Embiid ftw. Not even a contest. No one in our conference can even hold his jizz rag and maybe only 2 or 3 other big men in the nation can ball with him down low.

    Embiid is a stud no doubt about it and his rate of improvement is scary. I sure hope he leaves after 1 year at Kansas.

    Other than Embiid, I would love to have Tyrus on this team. We really miss his instant offense.
