#TeamPlayerUpdated 6/28/12Comp
1HornetsAnthony DavisPF – 6-10 – Kentucky – At 6,10 plays like a guard and has a great handle and ball skills.Davis is quick up and down the floor and is extremely difficult for other bigs to guard because of his versatility, speed and length. An elite shot blocker with incredible timing. Has great hands, catches and dunks the ball as well as any big man in the country. Needs to add weight but that will come.more versatile LaMarcus Aldridge
2BobcatsBradley BealSG – 6-4 – Florida – Bradley (the real deal) Beal is an impressive shooter, slasher and all around talent. He has a very NBA ready game and left after his Freshman season at Florida. A legit 6,4 he has good size for the 2 guard position and a sweet jump shot with NBA three point range.a nice Latrell Sprewell
3WizardsMichael Kidd-GilchristSF – 6-7 – Kentucky – Smooth wing player who has a similar skill set to Harrison Barnes but not as polished. A great defender with a good all around game and seems to have the right demeanor to continue to improve.Scottie Pippen
4CavsThomas RobinsonPF – 6-8 – Kansas – Very strong and well built athlete with explosive leaping ability and great power. A little bit undersized but makes up for it with strength and explosiveness. Improving mid range game makes him very difficult to guard.Amare/Kris Humphries
5KingsHarrison BarnesSF – 6-8 – UNC – At 6,8 he has great body control and a great first step. Can explode into the air and hang there effortlessly. He is equally adept at attacking the rim or shaking free for a jumper with a step back move. Deadly accurate from outside and range past NBA three. Good handle, passing ability and understanding of the game. Needs to learn to assert himself and takeover a game.Grant Hill
6Trailblazers*Damian LillardPG – 6-3 – Weber State – PG who can really fill it up from outside. Plays a complete game, has good quickness and athleticism and can score in bunches.Marcus Thornton
7WarriorsAndre DrummondC – 6-11 – UConn – Physical specimen who is built like Dwight Howard. Very good quickness and explosiveness for a big man – can attack the rim with great power. Should be a very good rebounder and interior defender at the pro level and is developing nice offensive post moves. A rare, elite center prospect.poor man’s Dwight Howard
8RaptorsDion WaitersWell built 2 guard with a powerful game. Plays solid D and can do a little bit of everything on the court but not a great outside shooter.Quincy Lewis/Joseph Forte
9PistonsMeyers LeonardC – 7-0 – Illinois – Has legit NBA center size and good athleticism. Solid rebounder and post presence who can draw the double team. Good passer with a good feel for the game.better Jason Smith
10HornetsAustin RiversSG – 6-4 – Duke – Slick shooting 2 guard who is not an elite athlete but a very skilled offensive player. Has enough quickness and bounce to get into the lane and really knows how to play the game. Big time shot maker and clutch performer.Jeff Hornacek
11TrailblazersTyler ZellerC – 7-0 – UNC – Very agile and quick big man who can beat his man down the floor and put a lot of pressure on opposing bigs. Developing a very nice mid range jumper and some back to the basket moves. Not overpowering on the interior but strong enough to guard in the paint and rebound.a better Jeff Foster
12RocketsMoe HarklessSF – 6-8 – St. Johns – Very smooth wing player with great quickness and explosive leaping ability. Needs to develop his perimeter game but has the potential to be an NBA all star.Wesley Johnson/Paul George
13SunsKendall MarshallPG – 6-3 – UNC – Pass first point guard who has quickly earned the trust of his teammates and coach. Very high basketball IQ and good skill set but not an elite athlete. Needs work on his outside shot.almost Jason Kidd
14BucksJohn HensonPF – 6-10 – UNC – A highly skilled forward with good athleticism and shot blocking ability. Should develop the skills to step outside and drain jumpers to complement his moves to the rim. Needs to bulk up to guard the post and rebound with the big boys but has tremendous upside due to his natural basketball skills and long frame.Hilton Armstrong
1576ersAndrew NicholsonPF – 6-9 – St. Bonaventure – Sweet shooting forward who is deadly from outside and can mix it up in the paint. Good shot blocker and rebounder and good overall athlete.almost Danny Granger
16Rockets*Arnett MoultriePF – 6-10 – Miss. State – Very skilled big man who needs to mature and show some consistency. Nice post skills and very good athleticism for a big. Has expanded his game nicely over the past two years.Jason Thompson
17MavericksTerrence RossSG – 6-6 – Washingtion – A high scoring 2 guard with all the tools to excel on the wing in the NBA. Has improved his accuracy from outside and hits a high percentage of free throws. Good leaper, dunker, rebounder and defender.Alec Burks
18RocketsJeremy LambSG – 6-5 – UConn – Very long and smooth 2 guard with high upside. Can get into the lane well, run the floor and finish on the break. Long arms help make him a disruptive defender. Becoming a deadly three point shooter and great all around scorer.Tracy McGrady/Joe Johnson
19MagicPerry JonesPF – 6-10 – Baylor – A high level prospect. At 6,10 runs the court like a guard, has a nice handle and great body control, including spin moves and up and under moves. Explosive leaper and good dunker. Good shooter including range out to college three with good form on his jumper. Downside is that he seems to struggle to put all this talent together into a cohesive basketball package.Rashard Lewis/Anthony Randolf
20NuggetsTerrence JonesF – 6-9 – Kentucky – Terrific all around talent who can run the floor, finish at the rim, pull up for a jumper or dish the ball. Very active inside and developing a nice jumper beyond college three. Can take his man off the dribble and draw fouls. Good weak side defender who needs to commit to getting back on defense. Nice upside potential.Michael Beasley/Julian Wright
21CelticsRoyce WhiteF – 6-8 – Iowa State – Point Forward with nice court vision and ball skills. Excels on the offensive end of the court and is a great passer. Strong athlete with a superior feel for the game.Antoine Walker/Drew Gooden
22Celtics*Festus EzeliC – 6-11 – Vanderbilt – Tall, broad shouldered center who has started to become a scorer on the block to go along with his good defensive skills. Runs the floor fairly well for a center.Nene
23HawksJared SullingerPF – 6-9 – Ohio State – Buckeye big man is very strong and has good quickness for a man his size. Projects as an undersized power forward along the lines of a Carlos Boozer, Elton Brand or Paul Milsap. Has a good handle and nice outside shot but lives on the block, rebounding and mixing it up. Lacks athleticism and has some injury concerns.Glen Davis/Charles Barkley
24Cavs*Fabricio de MeloC – 6-11 – Syracuse – Very big, strong and athletic center with good leaping ability and feel for the game. Well built, solid frame with decent body control but is a bit foul prone and still learning the finer points of the game. High upside.Kelvin Cato/Yinka Dare
25GrizzliesJeffrey TaylorSF – 6-7 – Vanderbilt – Taylor reminds me of Delante West the way he plays but is 6 foot 7 inches tall and has a solid head on his shoulders. Very quick with the dribble and gets up high when he attacks the rim. Good form on jumper will help him develop that part of his game.6,7 Delonte West
26PacersMarquis TeaguePG – 6-2 – Kentucky – Lightening quick PG who understands the game well and plays within the offense. Decent outside shooter with some room for improvement in that area.a better Jeff Teague
27HeatTony Wroten Jr.G – 6-4 – Washington – A very powerful guard who can blow by defenders and score or make plays in the lane. Looks to be fully recovered after a HS knee injury and has a chance to develop into a very good NBA player. Excellent passer for a big guard and can play a little point.Q Richardson/D Wade
28ThunderDoron LambSG – 6-4 – Kentucky – Excellent three point shooter and developing a dribble drive game. Overshadowed by the bigger names at Kentucky but should develop into a solid NBA shooting guard.Nick Young
29BullsJohn Jenkins SG – 6-4 – Vanderbilt – Elite shooter who has developed a terrific dribble drive to go with his three point shooting abilities. Very quick athlete who knows how to get open.poor man’s Kevin Martin
30WarriorsWill BartonSG – 6-6 – Memphis – Wiry athlete with good length but lacking strength. Nice looking jump shot and overall offensive game. Good upside.Rip Hamilton
