After reading a little more, the violation was that a NC financial advisor paid for Shabazz to go visit the campus. Assuming plenty of these players can't really afford airplane tickets and such...is that really such a bad thing?


So when is his debut on national television?

Who are some NCAA players to watch for? Ones that will be coming into the NBA draft in the next few years.

It’s goint to be a weak draft by all accounts, no clear number 1 which says a lot. Top 4 prospects as of now are:

Shabazz Muhammed (SG UClA Frosh),
Nerlens Noel (C Kentucky Frosh),
James Michael Mcadoo (PF UNC Soph)
Cody Zeller (C Indiana Soph).

Personally I like Tony Mitchell better than all of those guys (6’8 235 SF/PF out of North Texas) except for Noel due to his potential. Those would be the top 5 USA players at this point and all of those players have major question marks in their games.. Rudy Cobert 7-1 center is also projected top 5 but he’s international

Next Tier Lotto picks would be:
Isiah Austin C Baylor
Alex Len C Maryland
Otto Porter SF Georgetown
Alex Poythress PF/SF Kentucky
Archie Goodwin SG Kentucky
CJ Mccollum PG Lehigh
Bj Young PG Arkansas
Steven Addams C Pittsburgh

Players that could play themselves into Lotto Consideration:
Lebryan Nash OKST SF
CJ Leslie PF NCST
Rodney Purvis SG NCST (Really Talented has top 10 potential)
Patric Young PF Florida
William Cauley C Kentucky

Rising Players:
Marcus Smart SG OKST
Ben Mclemore SG Kansas

Keep an eye on Anthony Bennett out here in Vegas. Kid has LJ all over him if he lives up to his potential. So far, he's been very very good, and we barely feature him in the offense.

I haven't been able to catch any UNLV games yet, but from the box score and some clips it looks like Bennett play like a strech 4 mostly for you guys right?

The problem is he’s 6’7 PF.. Definitely an Nba player but his draft stock has a ceiling because of that. Has the shot to play SF but not the handle so he’s a 6’7 tweener right now. Regarding the LJ comparison he doesn’t have a good back to the basket game, LJ had great post moves.

He's a lot like LJ was before his back gave out, relying on strength and athleticism to overwhelm down low. He can play a stretch 4 (in college) because he has good range and a soft touch on his jumper. He's been good at the FT Line too, so when he gets the ball, good things usually happen.

Tim Hardaway Jr has improved greatly. I think his dad took him out to the backyard and worked on his handles.

Kentucky has the worst team that they've had since Calipari took over, wouldnt be surprised if Nerlens gets exposed and drops out of his expected top-3 range, especially with guys like McAdoo poised for a big season


Are we restricted from trading our #1 pick before the draft -- due to owing next pick to Denver?

Or - can we trade the pick after the season -- before the draft (say draft night)?

Oh believe me, LJ was my favorite player of all time. LJ came to UNLV as a junior and dominated. I'm saying Bennett shares a lot of similarities to him and is only a freshman. I hope he can live up to his potential.
