Bobcat's Position of Needs

1. C

2. SF

3. SG

4. PG

5. PF

My Top Prospect

65368_Harvard_Connecticut_Basketball_large.jpg

Andre Drummond, UCONN

Originally wasn't going to go to a college for basketball but ended up at UCONN. This big man is athletic and has all the physical tools too succeed. A lot of his hype is based on potential but he should be a force at the center position. Would love to find a starting Center and he would be a perfect fit.

Top Tier Prospects

Anthony Davis

Harrison Barnes

Jeremy Lamb

Bradley Beal

Jared Sullinger

Second Tier Prospects

John Henson

Perry Jones

Thomas Robinson

Doron Lamb

Khris Middleton

Terrence Jones

Tyler Zeller

Austin Rivers

Quincy Miller

James McAdoo

I know there are others I missed. Really think we need to go after a SF and/or Center in this upcoming draft. Would love Drummond but with the lottery you never know when we'll get to pick.

Post any articles, updates, or thoughts on particular prospects you think would help the Bobcats.

What about Andre Drummond? He may be the best prospect there is this year.

NBA Comparison: Amar'e Stoudemire

Strengths: Man child. A physical specimen type of athlete with a huge wingspan, long legs and strength and agility at a young age ... He's already a beast inside the paint with his rebounding and shot blocking ability and shows the toughness and tenacity to be a dominant inside player ... Shows a natural feel for the game with good timing on shot blocks and explosive leaping ability ... Has a huge wingspan (7-feet-plus) ... Born in August of 1993, and with size 18 shoes, Drummond could have another growth spurt in him and could end up well over 7-feet ... Right hander who shows a solid form on his shot ... Right now he scores a lot of points around the basket on ally oops and put backs. He's also beginning to show some ability to create offense for himself and his post skills show a lot of potential ...

Weaknesses: Hype at a young age is never good ... He could end up his own worst enemy if he buys into the hype and decides he doesn't want to work hard to be the best player he can become ... He's so naturally gifted, that he can be a solid pro without putting much work in. Does he have the hunger to be great is the big question ... His range on his shot and consistency are something he will need to develop over the next few seasons ... Developing a killer instinct to take over games will allow him to become dominant at both ends of the floor ... Another key will be continuing to work at his body, getting stronger and putting on good weight.

Notes: Wears the same number as his idol (#12) Dwight Howard.

Center, Patric Young is playing Texas A&M (22) today at 2:30.

Young is physically built and has really improved from his freshman year. A lot of that has to do with playing time. He is only about 6'10', but he is strong enough to body down low on defense. His offensive post game is improving but could use more polish.

This draft is ridiculously deep. I honestly wouldnt mind drafting guys like Gilchrist, Quincy Miller, or Thomas Robinson and none of them are even top-5 right now. This draft goes about 10 deep with players I think are better than everyone last year outside of Irving and Williams
