#TeamPlayerUpdated 6/24/10Comp
31NetsSolomon AlabiC – Florida State – 7-1 – Huge but slow. decent jump shot when he has time to set. Ok shot blocker and rebounder due to his size but not an explosive athlete and not very refined offensively.Samual Delembert
32ThunderJordan CrawfordSG – Xavier – 6-4 – A crafty player who can get his shot off against anyone and has very deep range. Very good handle and protects the ball and penetrates well. Coming on strong late in the season but would benefit from one more year in college.Larry Hughes
33KingsMikhail TorranceSG – Alabama – 6-5 – Having a very strong post season, proving that he deserves a long look from NBA clubs. Combo guard who can play the point and has the size to match up against SG’s. Good court vision and passing but sometimes plays out of control and needs to cut down on turnovers. Very strong shooter from outside and seems to be getting better and better.Daquan Cook
34WizardsCraig BrackensPF – Iowa State – 6-10 – A perimeter oriented big man with a sweet jump shot. Range is beyond the college three and not afraid to take the big shots. A decent defender who gives up some quickness to other power forwards and needs a mean streak on the block. Good passer and shooter who should be deadly on the pick and pop.Troy Murphy/Sam Perkins
35WarriorsTerrico WhiteSG – Mississippi – 6-5 – Rising sophomore had a nice summer and was gaining momentum heading into the season but so far has disappointed. Could have been a first rounder if he stayed in school and developed his game fully. Classic size and skills for a shooting guard and flashes some point guard skills.Derek Anderson
36PistonsJarvis VarnadoPF – Miss. State- 6-9 – An elite shot blocker with great timing. Guards the paint and protects the rim. Scores on put backs, hustle points and dives to the rim. Will need to add strength to play down low at the next level. Developing post moves.Bo Outlaw/Stomile Swift
37BucksQuincy PondexterSF – Washington – 6-7 – Break out season for the Senior Forward. His good defense and leadership have now been augmented by a nice offensive game, especially good mid range pull up jumpers and fade aways. Still not a great three point shooter but looks capable of becoming more consistant in that area.Devean George
38KnicksGreivis VasquezPG – Maryland – 6-5 – Very heady player and fiery competitor. Makes all the right plays, sets up his teammates well and facilitates the offense. Decent rebounder and ok defender who will give up speed and quickness to just about every NBA guard. All around skills will get him a long look from NBA GMs.Vonteego Cummings/Bob Sura
39KnicksArmon JohnsonPG – Nevada – 6-3 – Well built floor general with very good passing ability and understanding of the game. Strange looking jump shot which needs a fair amount of work but has the size and skill to lead an NBA club.Jarrett Jack
40PacersWillie WarrenSG – Oklahoma – 6-3 – A bit of a tweener but flashes point guard skills and has the quickness and handle to get by his man and set up his teammates. More of a natural scorer at this point but has all the tools to run the point. Has lateral quickness like D. Wade and a nice outside shot.Ben Gordon
41HeatDominque JonesSG – South Florida – 6-3 – Combo guard who was a one man wrecking crew at South Florida but doesn’t really show the point guard skills that would maximize his value as an NBA prospect. Scorer who can get into the lane at will.Joseph Forte
42HeatNemanja BjelicaPF – Int. – 6-10 – Long and rangy forward with skills to play the 3 and ability to handle the ball and make plays. Good crossover dribble and hesitation moves get him into the lane where his size makes him very affective. Good size for a wing player and good understanding and feel for the game.Austin Daye/Mike Dunleavy Jr.
43LakersJerome JordanC – Tulsa – 7-0 – A 7 footer who can get up and down the court and stand tall inside. A long and skinny player who does not have a frame that can add many pounds to it. Will have to work hard to get the strength needed to play in the NBA but he does have a soft touch out to 16 feet and a few good post moves. Not likely to be a starter but might find a role as a back up center in the NBA.Travis Knight
44BlazersLazar HaywardSF – Marquette – 6-6 – Very solid all around forward who can do everything well but does nothing great. Good jump shot with NBA three point range. Solid on defense and plays within the framework and puts his team first. Good enough athlete to get a shot at the NBA.Joey Graham
45T-WolvesBrian ZoubekC – Duke – 7-1 – Massive center who plays a hard nosed game of rebounding, defending and banging inside. A solid role player who doesn’t try to do too much on offense but has a decent touch and came on strong towards the end of the season.Chris Mihm
46SunsJohn RandlePG – California – 5-10 – Very steady leader who does everything needed to win. Will take the big shot, make the right play and put his teammates in position to succeed. Undersized and will struggle to guard inside the three point line but his great shooting and passing ability make him valuable.Earl Boykins
47BucksArt ParakhouskiC – Radford – 6-11 – Not super quick but athletic enough to get up and down the court and does a lot of damage with the ball in his hands. Very good size and developing a feel for the game. Has only played bball for a few years now and is improving rapidly. Dominating small conference foes.Primoz Brezec
48HeatTrevor BookerPF – Clemson – 6-7 – Undersized power forward who brings intensity and all out hustle. Could develop into a solid role player due to his intensity and the intangibles he brings to a team. Jump shot should continue to develop with time. Good rebounder in college but will be undersized in the NBA.Clearance Weatherspoon
49SpursMichael WashingtonPF – Arkansas – 6-10 – Very solid big man who rebounds, boxes out and bangs inside. Defends the paint well and also runs the court well. Not a flashy player and does not have a fully developed offensive game but does have decent form on his jump shot which could become a weapon down the road. For now he scores on put backs, garbage buckets and drives to the rim. Will have to earn his paycheck on defense and securing rebounds.Jamaal Magloire
50MavsDa’Sean ButlerSF – West Virginia – 6-7 – Overshadowed by Ebanks but puts up better numbers and is more important to his team than Ebanks. Nice wing prospect with very good outside shooting range and average athleticism. Will have to recover from a knee injury and regain his form.Carlos Delfino/Jason Kapono
51ThunderJP PrinceSG – Tennessee – 6-7 – A long and active defender who plays the game the right way and has a high basketball IQ. Decent shooter, passer and all around player who will earn a living by shutting down opposing wings.John Salmons
52CelticsRyan ThompsonSF – Rider – 6-6 – Blew up at the P.I.T. and now looks like a second round pick. Very efficient offensive game and can do just about everything on the court. Decent three point shooter and good mid range game. Has a great understanding of the game and displays good passing, spacing and teamwork. Not a high end athlete and will give up foot speed and leaping ability to most NBA small forwards.Josh Howard
53HawksHamady NdiayeLate developing big man has become a force as a shot blocker. Decent rebounder who knows his role and plays a team game.Keon Clark
54ClippersJerome DysonPG – UConn – 6-2 – A scoring point guard with three point accuracy and decent explosiveness. Not very big or strong but his scoring skills will get him drafted.Willie Green
55JazzDarington HobsonSF – New Mexico – 6-7 – Has a great feel for the game and looks like an emerging prospect who could rise up draft boards. Does a little bit of everything: score, rebound, assist, defense, leadership. Not a super athlete which is why he projects as a second rounder. A poor mans Wesley JohnsonJared Dudley
56T-WolvesPaulao PrestesPF – Int. – 6-10 – Powerful player with a wide body and long arms. Not much of a leaper and not particularly fast but has good hands and decent skills for a young player his size.Mark Jackson (PF)
57MavsMac KoshwalPF – DePaul – 6-10 – Strong athlete hoping to become a basketball player. At 6,10 with great leaping ability and good quickness he could be a project player for some team, perhaps developing his game in the D league.
58LakersSamardo SamualsPF – Louisville – 6-8 – Solid but slow forward who can bang down low and play D but doesn’t bring a whole lot to the table offensively and is too short to become a force down low.
59MagicRyan RichardsC – Int. – 7-0 – Performing well in individual workouts and might find his way into second round. Very good size for the position and enough quickness and basketball IQ to become a valuable back up center.
60SunsMarquis GilstrapSF – Iow State – 6-7 – Very athletic player who lacks basketball skills. Will get a shot at the NBA due to his upside as a pure athlete and might just surprise some people and develop into a well rounded basketball player.
   On the Bubble 
  Latavious WilliamsPF – D. League – 6-9 – Straight from High School to the Pros! Williams passed on college for a chance to play in the NBA Development League. Might need another year or two honing his game before making to the NBA. Good athlete with good body for the NBA but a bit undersized for the power forward position.Michael Ruffin
  Dexter PitmanPF – Texas – 6-9 – Bulky Forward who has worked very hard to get his body to where it is now. Is heavy but holds the weight high and has decent foot speed for a man his size but can only run up and down the court a few times before he’s winded. Not much of an offensive player but earns his minutes rebounding, defending the paint and banging with the big boys. Could have been an All American Offensive Lineman if he played football. Will have to land in the right situation to stick in the NBA.Sean May/Oliver Miller
  Charles GarciaSF – Seattle – 6-10 – Unique player who has the size of a power forward and the skills of a guard. Late growth spurt makes him an intriguing prospect because of this versatility. Not much of a banger or post defender but has nice offensive skills including a very good handle with both hands and range out to college three.Jared Jeffries
  Luke HarangodyPF – Notre Dame – 6-7 – A classic tweener. Great college player who comes to the pros with a polished game, huge hustle and all the intangibles but questions about how his game will translate to the pros. At 6,7 he is an undersized power forward but is not quick enough to guard most wings. Despite all the questions Luke is too good of a ball player to not make it. If his three point shot develops he could enjoy a long successful career.Anthony Mason/Matt Harpring
  Landry FieldsSF – Stanford – 6-7 – A prolific scorer who shoots the ball extremely well and creates space for himself despite his limited quickness. At 6,7 he can get up and dunk but is not an elite athlete and has average foot speed. Putting up big numbers in college but not sure if that will translate to NBA success.Matt Barnes
  Aubrey ColemanSG – Houston – 6-4 – Not a great shooter but very quick and is very hard to stay in front of. Great hands on defense leads to lots of steals and he averages over 7 boards a game!! Not a team player and takes way too many bad shots.
  Marcus JohnsonSF – USC – 6-6 – A very good athlete and exceptional defender who has a long way to go as an offensive player. Will earn a living here or in Europe as a stopper, lock down defender and energy player. A woeful free throw shooter who has the potential to improve his shot but dang, 45% from the foul line?Ime Udoka
  Patrick ChristopherPG – California – 6-5 – Tall lead guard, with good vision and playmaking ability. Improving jump shot will round out his game and make him a viable NBA prospect.Brandon Armstrong
  Deon ThompsonPF – UNC – 6-8 – Overshadowed my the young talent on the Tar Heels but he’s got some game. Slow footed and undersized but has a good feel for the game and if he can develop his jump shot he could find a spot in the league.Pat Garrity
  Manny HarrisSG – Michigan – 6-5 – A good scorer who lacks big time athleticism. Shoots the ball well and gets into the lane for runners and layups but might have trouble against NBA defense due to his average quickness. Is not a great leaper and does not have great foot speed. Shooting and scoring ability should get him a long look from GMs.Mardy Collins
  AJ OgilvyPF – Vanderbilt – 6-11 – Decent skill set but doesn’t bring much to the table as an athlete. Has a chance due to his size but I really just don’t see it.
  Tasmin MitchellSF – LSU – 6-7 – Solid forward who is not a high upside player but plays the game well had is strong and quick enough to get a look from NBA scouts.Renaldo Balkman
  Derrick CharactorPF – UTEP – 6-8 – Wide bodied forward has improved his game and is now a legit NBA prospect. It will take a lot of hard work but he has the tools to stick around in the NBA.
  Milan MacvanPF – Int. – 6-8 – Passionate player who has the body of an undersized power forward but shows nice all around game and good outside shot. Will bang inside with his wide frame but lacks height to become a great rebounder. Has three point range on his jumper and understands the game and makes the smart pass. Good team player who is not a superstar but is a winner.John Thomas
  Alexey ShvedPG – Int. – 6-6 – A very long point guard who will have to add muscle and continue to learn the position but has a natural feel for the game and has the leadership qualities you look for in a point.Pepe Sanchez
  Denis ClementePG – Kansas State – 6-0 – Speedy point guard who can really score the ball and push the tempo.
  Edwin UbilesSF – Siena – 6-6 – Athletic forward with good understanding of the game. Has developed a decent jump shot but his NBA value rests with his ability to defend and the athleticism he brings.Ruben Patterson
  Omar SamhanPF – St. Mary’s – 6-10 – Very skilled offensive post player with good hands. Good height and solid frame but tragically slow footstep. Has value as a back to the basket threat but may prove to be too slow to keep up with the NBA game.Kebu Stewart
  Tim OhlbrechtPF – Int. – 6-11 – Lacks athleticism but can get up and down the floor ok. Needs to get stronger but has good size and a frame that could add some pounds. Might be a few years away from making it to the NBA.Curtis Borchardt
  Sherron CollinsPG – Kansas – 5-11 – Short and stalky point with great leadership and decent skills. Not a top notch athlete but plays smart. A clutch shooter who is the heart and soul of his team.
  Scottie ReynoldsPG – Villanova – 6-2 – Has nice moves and ball control but does not have elite speed. Will probably get burned by most NBA lead guards which will limit his minutes and effectiveness. Decent shooter who will have to become a great shooter to stick around in the NBA.Marcus Williams (PG)
  Wayne ChismPF – Tennessee – 6-8 – Decent shooter for a big man and good understanding of the game. Not a great athlete but strong enough to hold his own. Fights for rebounds and has a nose for the ball.poor man’s Al Harrington
