Yakhouba Diawara, meet your replacement...

The Nuggets "participated" in last night's draft after all, trading a future second round draft pick (so they can sit out another draft probably) for Arkansas swingman Sonny Weems. I know nothing about Weems. I just read his bio at and it sounds like he's quite an athlete, but doesn't have a particularly accurate jumper and isn't a great defender (terrific). But from a silver-lining perspective, he was a senior and he's 6'6".

It sounds like we just picked up another Bobby Jones (the 2008 African-American version, not the 1970's Caucasian version, in case you were confused).

If any of you know anything about Weems, please share!
