NBA Draft Prospect of the Week: C.J. Wilcox
by Mike Schmitz

C.J. Wilcox's college basketball career ended this week with a loss in the Pac-12 Tournament, which means a new page in his career is about to start. Standing 6-5 in shoes, with a solid 6-8 wingspan and solid athleticism, Wilcox looks the part of a NBA shooting guard prospect, and has the skill-set to fit in as a role player on most teams. He's a highly efficient offensive player, sporting a very good 60% true shooting percentage and a 1.5/1 assist to turnover ratio.

T.J. Warren is the #2 scorer in college basketball, posting over 28 points per-40 minutes, with a strong 59% true shooting percentage.

by Mike Schmitz

NBA Draft Prospect of the Week: Deonte Burton
by Mike Schmitz

Deonte Burton is closing on 2,000 points scored in his college career, which he surprisingly decided to extend with a fourth and final season after an extended debate last year. Burton ranks among the top point guards in this draft class in a variety of categories, but is completely off the national media's radar and looks to be struggling to move the needle on his draft stock playing for a dysfunctional team that sports a mediocre 12-14 record in the Mountain West Conference. Nevertheless, he shows intriguing potential in a number of areas and might end up being a better pro than many thought coming out of college.

Revisiting Damian Lillard (Scouting Video)
by Mike Schmitz

by Mike Schmitz

Swiss big man Clint Capela is in the midst of an outstanding season in Pro A France, ranking among the top rebounders, shot-blockers and finishers in the league, despite being one of the youngest players actually receiving playing time.

NBA Draft Prospect of the Week: Thanasis Antetokounmpo
by Mike Schmitz

Delaware 87ers forward Thanasis Antetokounmpo has proven himself as one of the best athletes in the NBA D-League through 19 games. Will his athleticism, energy, and defensive potential be enough to warrant using a draft pick on the Greek forward in the 2014 NBA Draft?

NBA Draft Prospect of the Week: Shabazz Napier
by Mike Schmitz

Shabazz Napier has established himself as one of the top point guards in college basketball under Kevin Ollie at UConn, averaging a robust 16 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists per game for a top-25 ranked team currently 11-2.
