Qi, Zhou  China  7'2" 209 C 1/16/1996 QI has a good efficiency (per-minute) rating. He is a skinny Chinese 20 year old with terrific length. Zhou played in the 2015 Hoop Summit, offering a glimpse into his promising future. This season in China, Zhou shot 60% FG, and 75% FT in the CBA. ...Zhou is an excellent shot blocker (134 blocked shots in 1400+ minutes in the CBA in 2015-16). Zhou has a standing reach of 9'6.5" (same as Javale McGee). The only man with a taller standing reach in the NBA is Rudy Gobert (9'7"). ...Zhou is not just a BIG tall guy. He can handle the ball, and he shows shooting touch. ...Right handed. ...His upside is tremendous, not to mention the business-side that can do wonders for an NBA team in China's market. Zhou will need time to produce at the NBA level. He obviously needs to add strength. He has more turnovers than assists. But ask the Utah Jazz how Gobert is working out just three years after they drafted him 27th. Zhou may indeed be the kind of investment that looks "long-term" but may only take a couple of seasons to produce positive results.

In 2012 the 27th pick was Arnett Moultrie. We advised, "Draft Draymond Green."
