Outlook for the 2020 Draft Class: Picks 1-15

December 19, 2020 R. C. Harris 0

The draft took place less than a month ago, and this season’s rookies will be immediately thrown into the fire.  This draft class will be asked to perform without the benefit of Summer League play, an orientation period, and training time in the gym and weight room.  To make matters worse, training camp will last just a couple of weeks and feature only a few [ . . . ]

Devin Vassell Scouting Report

November 9, 2020 Clayton Conover 0

Devin Vassell, one of the most dependable and consistent players in this draft class, dramatically improved himself from his freshman to sophomore year. Playing 28.7 minutes per outing as a sophomore, the Florida State wing averaged 12.7 points, 1.6 assists, 5.1 rebounds, and 2.4 combined steals and blocks per game, with shooting splits of .490/.415/.738. Those numbers may not seem elite, but he led FSU [ . . . ]

Warriors’ Needs and Potential Picks

October 21, 2020 Clayton Conover 0

Coming off their worst season since 2001, the Golden State Warriors have completely reset. Ideally, they can jumpstart another multi-year championship run with the help of this year’s draft. Due to their severe lack of wins this past season, they were awarded the second-overall pick in the NBA Draft, though this draft contains no guaranteed Zions or Lukas (that we know of now). In order [ . . . ]

I recently joined Rob Hess on his radio show “Nothin’ But Net Radio” to talk about Florida State’s three prospects in the 2020 NBA Draft. In order, we discussed: Devin Vassell — a high-level, all-around performer, who is projected to go ninth in our latest mock draft. Patrick Williams — who features fantastic measurables and is one of the youngest prospects in this class. Trent [ . . . ]

2020 NBA Mock Draft – In-depth Version 2.0

September 8, 2020 R. C. Harris 0

The order for the 2020 NBA Draft is finally set, but the actual draft is at least six weeks away.  This class features a ton of point guards/combo guards, and at the same time, there is a notable shortage of wings with good size and a reliable outside shot.  Also, quality rim protectors are in short supply.   There is no clear-cut top prospect this year, [ . . . ]
