More prospects to watch:

Addison Patterson from Oregon is a high level athlete and a great finisher who has a very skill level and a lot of play making ability is a creative finisher around the rim, he has all the physical tools to be a standout defender and shows of defense potential.
Addison doesn’t always play with the best Moto needs to learn to bring it every possession of every game and pick up the defensive intensity, he doesn’t have ideal on his jumper a show release with a low release point.
He can hit the three pointer but doesn’t yet hit at a great percentage and isn’t a knock down shooter at this point in his career.

Mark Williams from Duke he has plenty of size a legit 7-footer and decent mobility, rebounds on the ball does a lot on his scoring on putbacks and dump offs around the rim.
Mark can be a lot heavy footed and doesn’t change directions particularly with much could lead to trouble defending against NBA speed and in pick and roll situations but might take a few years in college to develop.


Daimion  Collins from Kentucky is a prospect that really intriguing I look him to make moves up draft boards soon and seems to be getting far  too little attention, he doesn’t get a lot of buzz and could be a late draft steal.
