Wesley Cheng: What kind of potential does Frank Anselem have?

Adam Zagoria: Talking to his coach, he compared him a little bit to Hakim Warrick. He said he’s not as skilled as Warrick right away, but he has the same type of body, 6-9, 6-10, long. He’s going to come in early and back up guys like Marek Dolezaj and Bourama Sidibe, and when Sidibe and Dolezaj leave, he’ll have time to spread his wing, improve and contribute in the next couple of years.
