Summary: Babbitt has somehow gone from a borderline first-round pick to a guy who likely won't fall out of the lottery which makes his decision to turn pro seem like a no-brainer. He is a tremendous scorer due to his inside/outside game, but will be a liability at the defensive end at the next level. I don't think he is worthy of a lottery pick, but he has a lot of buzz around his name right now.
Player Comparison: Danilo Gallinari. Babbitt has drawn comparisons to Warrior legend Chris Mullin likely because they are both lefty sharpshooters. I think Gallinari is a better match because they are both great outside shooters who don't have tremendous athleticism. Babbitt is a better creator and ball handler than Gallinari, but will be known for his outside shooting at the next level.
