What is Thunder center Cole Aldrich’s ceiling? Sports Staff Published: July 18, 2011

Darnell Mayberry wrote about Oklahoma City Thunder rookie center Cole Aldrich in today’s Oklahoman, noting that Aldrich could jump ahead of Nazr Mohammed in the Thunder’s rotation in 2011-2012. Aldrich was limited to 18 games and only 7.9 minutes per game in his rookie season.

In today’s Power Lunch chat, Mayberry was asked about Aldrich’s ceiling:

Tough to say at this point. He’s played in less than 20 games as a pro. I think he’s going to be a good defensive player. But I’d like to see some sort of body of work before I go making crazy predictions. The name Joel Przybilla comes to mind, though.

What do you think? Should Aldrich play ahead of Mohammed next season?
