Illinois' Meyers Leonard should be a lottery pick in the NBA Draft. Here are potential landing spots for him. http://t.co/YFxHKmyx

I'm going out on a limb and saying that Meyers Leonard will be the highest drafted player ever from Robinson.

If Jared Sullinger does fall in draft, when I asked him months ago about team he'd like to play for, he said Boston. Celtics pick 21.

Be very cautious in passing up Draymond Green or Jae Crowder because they quote " Don't have a position." Both guys can play

William Buford, like Orlando Johnson, looked like a run-of-the-mill second-round two-guard prospect.

Quote on Buford: "He looked a little heavy at the combine, didn't shoot it real well, so he probably hurt himself…

John Shurna hit 36 of 40 three-pointers in his Bucks workout. How could you not draft him? #Northwestern

DraftExpress: Jae Crowder leads all players in overall scoring efficiency with 1.14 PPP, well ahead of 2nd-place John Shurna at 1.078 PPP.

John Shurna would make a great second round pick for the Bucks. He has a very Novak-ian game.
