@PaulBiancardi is Willie Cauley-Stein somewhat of a Tyson Chandler clone ? #AskcoachB

I like that comparison because Cauley-Stein is tall and runs and finishes at the rim much like Chandler. They are very similar with their shot-blocking abilities. Both protect the rim by blocking shots and helping from the weak side. This comparison is fair, but don't forget Chandler came straight out of high school and really blossomed as an NBA defensive-player-of-the-year talent. Plus, he has the ability to post double-doubles at times. Cauley-Stein has a lot of work to do on his offense and his rebounding to become like Chandler.
