2013 DRAFT WATCH – Part 4

That time is getting closer, rumours are circling about which players may be working out with what teams, and suggestions of teams working towards certain options come Draft night have fans and bloggers invested with great interest.

Last weeks Draft Watch saw us take a close look at 3 players that will more than likely be picked first round. So, this week I’ll be taking a look at players that may fall that little deeper into the Draft.

Without further ado..

 

DeShaun Thomas – Small Forward/Power Forward

@DT1UpNComin

This experienced Forward currently plays his ball at Ohio State and has had a very solid year.  Thomas is the only Buckeye to have declared eligibility for this years Draft, and despite a very good year it is currently projected that he may be picked late into the second round. Thomas definitely possesses attributes that will have perked up the interest of various scouts and GM’s around the league, and am confident he can make his way into the League given the right team. Thomas have a great natural ability for scoring and did so well this year, averaging 19 points a game for the Buckeyes. Also, Thomas is a very solid 3pt shooter, who this year finished up averaging 34% from behind the arc.

2013 DRAFT WATCH – Part 3

With the NBA Draft Lottery today, we saw it fit to give you, our readers another dose of our Draft Watch.

Earlier on this season, I began taking a look at potential talents that had team scouts and fans hot with frenzy.

Here we look at our next group of potential stars..

Nerlens Noel - Power Forward/Center

@NerlensNoel3

This powerful, tall, shot blocker currently plays his ball out of the University of Kentucky, so it would be safe to say he is coming from good stock. Currently being touted as one of the best shot blockers to come along in years and is known for having a fantastic work ethic. Whispers are suggesting that he is just as good as last years Draft Number One – Anthony Davis, so we should be in for a real treat. Not only does he possess great length (7′ 4″ wingspan) but his body is NBA ready. Noel is also known to have great steals ability for such a big man. This exciting prospect is currently predicted to go at Number 2, which would see him fall to the Orlando Magic.

If you missed round 1?….. Don’t sweat, you can find it right here.

Ben McLemore – Shooting Guard

BEN-MCLEMORE200

 

This slick shooting guard who currently plays his ball out of Kansas, has been the talk of many NBA scouts. An Ultra smooth shooter who has been drawing comparisons to Ray Allen, not only has a precise shoot but is very athletic too. Known as a great team player who despite his shooting ability will not ball hog and picks up his fair share of assists. Expect McLemore to go Top 5.
