by: DraftExpress
June 7, 2011
Jonathan Givony joins David Locke of Locked on Jazz to discuss various issues pertaining to the 2011 NBA Draft.

We discuss:

-Enes Kanter and the recent film we acquired from his prep school career. What should that tell us about him as a NBA prospect?
-Comparing the strengths and weaknesses of Jonas Valanciunas, Donatas Motiejunas and Jan Vesely
-Which players in this draft have the "it" factor that helps them exceed expectations, similar to Brandon Roy?
-Kyrie Irving
-Derrick Williams - does he play hard? Will he be able to produce in the NBA?
-Alec Burks - Is he too cool for school? Should we be concerned with his effort level?
-Bismack Biyombo - What type of prospect is he? Will he drop to 12? What is it about him that will allow him to make an impact in the NBA?
-Brandon Knight - What's his pro evaluation? What does he need to work on to reach his full potential?
-Jimmer Fredette- What type of transition will he have to make in the NBA? Will he be a starter in the NBA? What's his ceiling?
-Which two players in this draft class will end up being all-stars?
