As Dontari Poe continues to shed weight, his bank account continues to get fatter.
Ferguson makes the small leap into the lottery this time around. While he’s been just solid in Australia, posting pedestrian numbers but fitting in a professional setting well, it’s easy to see him making the leap into the top portion of the draft when it’s all said and done. The workout setting is going to be perfect for him as an elite athlete who also can knock down shots from out to 25 feet with ease.
Giles is obviously still the toughest prospect to peg in the draft. On one hand, he was the No. 1 prospect in this recruiting class for a reason. Everyone who saw him believed they were watching a future star due to his athleticism, motor and desire to be great.
He hasn’t been himself this season though, and with the sample he’s shown off thus far, it would be tough to select him in the lottery in this loaded draft. The good news? He’s shown signs over the last couple of weeks that the old Harry Giles is still in there.
Monk is a tough prospect to peg. On one hand, he is an elite shooter in a league that continues to want floor spacers. On the other, he’s a bit undersized at 6-3 with a 6-4 wingspan for a non-shooting guard. He doesn’t attack the rim enough in the halfcourt, doesn’t create all that many easy shots and isn’t an elite defender by any stretch.
There are certain situations (like Milwaukee and Philadelphia) where Cheap Ireland Rugby Jerseys he makes more sense than he does for others. Those teams rising up the draft board could see Monk go in the top Cheap Indiana Pacers Jerseys five. But given the volcanic nature of his scoring ability, Monk is worthy of a top-10 pick.
