Misc. Notes
Kevin Durant
Texas
6-10
225
Fr.
Will be the No. 2 pick unless he can convince one of the GMs to take him first.
Corey Brewer
Florida
6-8
185
Jr.
For my money, the best player in the draft after Greg Oden and Kevin Durant. No weakness in his game; can score, shoot threes and play defense. I want the Sixers to take him, even though they have a million small forwards. His outstanding Final Four moved him into the Top 5.
Jeff Green
Georgetown
6-8
235
Jr.
A great, all-around player who has too many strengths to list. One concern: He refused to look for his own shot against Ohio State in the Final Four. That would scare me off.
Julian Wright
Kansas
6-8
225
So.
An intelligent player with a great game. I think he needs one more year at the collegiate level; must improve shooting and strength.
Thaddeus Young
Georgia Tech
6-8
217
Fr.
Averaged 14.4 ppg as a freshman. An incredible athlete who can score inside and outside. Needs to get bigger and improve his ball control. I'd like to see him play one more season at Georgia Tech.
Al Thornton
Florida State
6-8
220
Sr.
Extremely athletic. Quick. Great rebounder for a small forward. Defense and jump shooting are two weaknesses.
Derrick Byars
Vanderbilt
6-7
225
Sr.
A swingman who can handle the ball, shoot and play defense. Not an intelligent player. Takes too many ill-advised shots.
Alando Tucker
Wisconsin
6-5
210
Sr.
A great scorer who averaged at least 12 ppg all five years of college. A team player. Three-point shooting is a liability, as is his defense.
DaJuan Summers*
Georgetown
6-8
225
Fr.
--
Jared Dudley
Boston College
6-7
225
Sr.
A smart, tough and competitive player any team could use. Shoots and passes well. His lacking athleticism and quickness will restrict him to the second round.
Dominic McGuire
Fresno State
6-8
210
Jr.
--
Demetris Nichols
Syracuse
6-7
205
Sr.
A solid athlete who can shoot the 3-ball. Takes too many ill-advised shots, however. Must grow stronger and become a better passer.
Curtis Sumpter
Villanova
6-7
223
Sr.
Can shoot the three and rebound well for his size. Defense is an issue. The two ACL injuries he suffered at Villanova are even greater concerns.
James Gist*
Maryland
6-8
223
Jr.
An outstanding athlete who can play defense. Has severe problems scoring and is a bit small for the NBA.
Quinton Hosley
Fresno State
6-6
210
Sr.
Lacking offensive game. Defense should be better.
Reyshawn Terry
North Carolina
6-7
232
Sr.
Not a stereotypical senior; lacks focus and leadership. Scoring dropped from 14 to 9 ppg. Solid defender.
