SBNation NBA Mock Draft: Pick No. 20

2007 NBA Mock Draft
Overall Pick: 20

Miami Heat
Chosen by: I Want to be a Sports Agent
TIAGO SPLITTER
PF, Brazil, 22


Darren from I Want to be a Sports Agent selects Tiago Splitter for the Heat. Darren explains why the Heat went with the big Brazilian.
With the 20th pick in the SB Nation (and enemies) NBA Mock Draft, the Miami (El Miami) Heat select Tiago Splitter, PF/C from Brazil.

The Heat may have been looking to trade this spot about a week ago, but thanks to Stan Van Gundy's new job with the Orlando Magic, the Heat were able to pick up another pick in the 2nd round, where they can look to fill another future hole on their roster. The reasoning behind picking Tiago Splitter with the 20th pick is two-fold. We believe that Tiago slipped in the draft and is in fact the best available player on the board (considering all positions). He is a great defender, and the Heat have been playing abysmal defense. Shaq and Zo are getting ready to start playing shuffleboard outside of their multi-million dollar mansions in Miami, and Tiago Splitter is ready to start developing into the next great NBA big man.
