Players to watch out for.

http://www.draftexpress.com/rankings/Top-100-Prospects/

Brandon Paul SG
http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Brandon-Paul-5792/
6'4" 210 SG with shot creating abilities. Struggles with FG% and shot selection, but as I've said before, shooting is the easiest thing to fix. Great overall athlete and has the length to make up for the 6'4" height at SG. Quick. Fast. Leaps. Length. Handles.

James Ennis SF
http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/James-Ennis-41434/
6'6" 210 SF. Ebanks. Ariza. Elite athletic types with wingspan, need time to develop defense and shotmaking skills. Killer in transition. Needs discipline.

Solomon Hill SF
http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Solomon-Hill-5824/
6'6" 230 SF. Ron Artest. Broad shoulders brushes off defenders on drives. Motor. Already 39% behind the arc. Aggressive. Hoop IQ. Foundation of triple threat skills. Defense.

Jamaal Franklin SG/SF'
http://www.draftexpress.com/article/NBA-Draft-Prospect-of-the-Week-Jamaal-Franklin-4142
6'5" SG/SF. Eddie Jones type. Creates shots off the dribble. Incredible motor for a SG, especially in terms of rebounding. Covered PF-SG defensively for San Diego State. Can get erratic with aggressive play and shot selection. Not a standstill spot up shooter yet. Activity on defense forces turnovers and pushes transition play. Rebounds like a PF.

Add players accordingly.

What do you think of Ricky Ledo? He'd be kind of a wild card, although I don't even know if he'll get drafted or not.

In this draft, I'd take him as a wild card.

Yeah. Also having watched both of them since they were about 13 years old, Ledo will be a better pro than Shabazz. Book it.

Mike where do you think Archie Goodwin will get drafted? If he falls to early 2nd, should the Lakers make a move to get him?

I liked the upside of other players more than him, but he's certainly a strong prospect. I don't see him slipping to the 2nd round.

zeke marshall

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LxIJOtfVgg

good interior defender, very good shot blocker, good rebounder, awkward running style like duncan but still mobile, very high TS% and eFG% his last year of college. from his interviews he seems like an intelligent kid too

doubt he'll last until the late second round for the lakers but here's hoping

edit: i'll leave the "good rebounding" part in there but tbh he's more like an okay rebounder. but i think he'll improve as a rebounder in the nba

I don't think he'll last to the pick. Too much length, athleticism, and touch around the basket. Fast teams will drool for that guy

ledo will never make it to us. a team with 2 2nd rounders will take a chance with him, maybe portland. sf is the clear need hopefully ennis or hill is still on the board.

Workout/interviews with

Nate Wolters
Brandon Paul
BJ Young
Adonis Thomas

Kupchak is at a predraft workout for
Jordan Henriquez
Norvel Pelle (think Andray Blatche, project player)
Josiah Turner - Nice floor game, shifty, PnR execution, acrobatic finishes, unselfish.

bj young went from 60% TS in his first year to 50% in his second. maybe he should have entered the draft after his first year instead of staying

BJ Young changed his release point after a poor shooting year, back to his freshman self. PreDraft workout showed higher release point and better results.

Depending on his shooting, he should be a first rounder.

his straight line speed on the break is ridiculous so i think he'll be effective even if he never gets his efficiency (aside from shots at the rim) figured out

Young is definitely a first round talent if his shot is corrected.

Wolters seems interesting.

When a guy flat out works that hard, and has that attitude about the game, it's hard for me not to like him.

I don't know that he would need athleticism to make it. He seems to play the game under control. If only the Lakers had a veteran point guard who plays somewhat similar.. who Nate could learn from..

Just... but I want more information from more workouts. He changes direction pretty well and plays under control at speed.
