Top NBA Draft Prospects
Derrick Williams, PF, Arizona Williams became a star player for the Wildcats in the little time he was there. He has great power and good size. Williams excelled late in the year on the defensive side of the ball.
Kemba Walker, PG, UConn After declaring for the NBA draft after leading the Huskies to the NCAA title Walker has risen to the top 10. He would be a good pick for Charlotte at 9 or Cleveland at 8. Both need electric game breakers.
Jimmer Fredette, SG, BYU Fredette comes away from one of the best college careers we've ever seen. There are questions: if his sharpshooting game can translate to the NBA? Will his defense improve enough to be a lottery pick? The Jazz lost a good 2 guard in Ronnie Brewer last year and need a replacement. Fredette may be the guy.
Enes Kanter, C, Kentucky* Kanter was a big recruit for John Calipari but NCAA violations ruled him out the whole year last season. He's big and tons of teams could be looking at him (Raptors, Wizards and Jazz).
Kenneth Faried, PF, Morehead State Playing at isolated Morehead State Faried wasn't as big of a name as say Kemba Walker but he still has the talent. He likely won't be a lottetry pick but Charlotte might like him at 19 or Portland at 21.
Kyle Singler, SF, Duke Even with a disappointing season with the Blue Devils Singler will still be a first rounder. He fits better at small forward but he can be put at power forward. The Spurs might like him at 29 or earlier.
