Misc. Notes
Brandan Wright
North Carolina
6-10
210
Fr.
One of the top prospects in the draft, Brandan Wright's only weakness is his lack of upper-body strength. That'll come if he works hard.
Al Horford
Florida
6-9
245
Jr.
A massive forward with lots of speed, Al Horford's only liability is his mid-range shooting.
Darrell Arthur*
Kansas
6-9
230
Fr.
A freakish athlete who needs to bulk up his sophomore season.
Joakim Noah
Florida
6-11
230
Jr.
Think Tayshaun Prince without a jump shot. Joakim Noah's a horrendous shooter with flawed form. Why hasn't anyone fixed this? Is he willing to improve?
Yi Jianlian
China
7-0
230
1984
A bit light for a 7-footer. He's athletic, but can he play defense and rebound in the NBA? I wouldn't take him with a top-10 pick.
Tyler Hansbrough*
North Carolina
6-8
245
So.
An intelligent leader and a hard worker. Not tall, but has low-post strength. His liabilities are his lacking athleticism and quickness. Not a great defender.
Josh McRoberts
Duke
6-10
240
So.
A smart player but doesn't really have the tools to thrive at the next level.
DeVon Hardin*
California
6-10
240
Jr.
Strong and athletic, but doesn't have any sort of offensive game. Broke a double-digit average for the first time in 2006-07.
Jason Smith
Colorado State
7-0
240
Jr.
An intelligent guy who will be a nice role player. Needs to hit the weight room every day.
Tiago Splitter
Brazil
6-11
240
1985
Think Joakim Noah without the freakish athleticsm.
D.J. White*
Indiana
6-8
242
So.
A classic case of a collegiate star who just doesn't have the height to be a solid NBA player.
Nick Fazekas
Nevada
6-11
240
Sr.
A smart player who can score and shoot from the outside. Lack of quickness and athleticism will keep him out of the first round.
Herbert Hill
Providence
6-10
240
Sr.
Solid rebounder, but I don't know he can score at the next level.
Carl Landry
Purdue
6-9
235
Sr.
D.J. White without the athleticism
Avis Wyatt
Virginia State
6-10
220
So.
He has quickness, a solid jumper and shot-blocking abilities. Light for a power forward.
Sean Williams
Boston College
6-10
235
Jr.
Has the potential to be a defensive monster in the NBA. First-round talent. However, his character issues -- he was kicked off the team -- will keep him off most draft boards.
Jermareo Davidson
Alabama
6-10
220
Sr.
An athletic power forward who lacks power.
Ivan Radenovic
Arizona
6-9
244
Sr.
I'd take him late in the second round because he has a solid jump shot and the height to get it off. Can be a role player. Doesn't have the athleticsm or defense to be a starter.
Stephane Lasme
UMass
6-8
225
Sr.
Averaged just 13.5 ppg on a mediocre team. Obviously not a scoring threat. Turns 25 in December.
Glen Davis
LSU
6-8
280
Jr.
Robert Tractor Traylor?
Mirza Begic
Bosnia
7-3
220
1985
--
Ali Traore
France
6-9
239
1985
As with most international prospects, defensive intensity is an issue. Also has trouble scoring. Great athleticism, however.
