NBA Draft hard to figure: Weiland
March 11, 2013 - Burt Angeli
Norway High School grad Ed Weiland, a college basketball expert at hoopsanalyst.com, says the NBA draft “remains an extremely hard one to figure out.”
“There’s a lot of upside in this draft, but very little in the way of sure things,” Weiland wrote.
Injured Kentucky center Nerlens Noel (knee) tops the draft list.
“Nerlens Noel remains a potential NBA superstar,” Weiland wrote. “The injury is a setback, but it should not keep a team from drafting this guy.”
Indiana’s Victor Oladipo (No. 2) and Georgetown’s Otto Porter (No. 4) ”both show signs of NBA superstardom, but also might be nothing more than very good role players. I’m hoping the tournament clears things up somewhat.”
Michigan guard Trey Burke and forward-center Mitch McGary rank 19th and 22nd on Weiland’s draft list.
“I find myself liking Burke a lot more than I probably should,” Weiland wrote. “(McGary is) A freshman who has played something less than starter minutes, but has been pretty impressive as a rebounder and defender.”
