2012 NBA Draft Stock

Updated 2/2




2012 NBA Draft Stock: Buying

Moe Harkless, SF, St. John's, Fr.
Harkless is looking more and more like a one-and-done. He had 23 points and 13 rebounds in the Red Storm's upset of West Virginia, and 30 and 13 in a loss to Duke. At 6-8, Harkless has the ideal size for an NBA small forward. He has a nice mid-range game, can attack the basket, and is smooth scorer around the hoop. I think there is a realistic chance of him being a top-10 pick if he declares for the 2012 NBA Draft.

Maalik Wayns, PG, Villanova, Jr.
Prior to being held to 12 points against Marquette, Wayns averaged nearly 28 points per game in his previous four outings. He has been forced to take on more of a scoring role for a down Villanova team, but is starting to look like the first-round prospect that he has been projected to be, especially in this weak point guard class. I wouldn't be surprised if he turned pro after this season although he needs to display a better ability to distribute the basketball.

LaDontae Henton, SF, Providence, Fr.
There is no real threat of Henton turning pro this summer, but he is a guy whom I am going to keep my eye on for the future. He has nice size for a NBA small forward and a solid inside/outside game. The lefty is playing major minutes for the Friars and went off for a career-high 33 points in a three-point loss to South Florida. Henton is very aggressive on the glass, averaging nearly nine boards a night and certainly could be a future first-round pick.






2012 NBA Draft Stock: Also Buying

Ricardo Ratliffe, PF, Missouri, Sr.
The Tiger senior is on pace to break the NCAA single-season field goal percentage. He is shooting 75.1 percent from the floor and the record is 74.6 percent by Oregon State's Steve Johnson during the 1980-81 season. Most of his buckets do come around in the rim in the form of east dunks, lay-ins or putbacks. He plays with terrific energy and has gained some massive national exposure due to Mizzou's success this season. He is a surefire second-round pick and continues to climb.

Royce White, PF, Iowa State, So.
White is a unique talent these days; a physical 6-8 player who can handle and distribute the basketball like a guard. His season averages of 13.6 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game is rather impressive. He held his own this past weekend against Thomas Robinson of Kansas and hit the game-winner against Kansas State as the Cyclones continue to look like an NCAA Tournament team. You can't help but wonder since this is technically his third year of college, if that might excel his decision to turn pro this summer.

Kyle O'Quinn, C, Norfolk State, Sr.
The 6-10 O'Quinn has been a double-double machine for the MEAC leading Spartans. He obviously plays against lesser, smaller opponents but has 15 double-doubles on the season and is coming off a 27-point, 18-rebound performance albeit in a loss to the Coppin State. He is physical down but also has a nice face-up game. Teams are always looking to find a diamond in the rough in the second round, and with O'Quinn's size, he could be that guy.
