2012 PIT Rosters
Kinda suprised Scott Machado and Robert Sacre aren't a part of this.
Machado & Sacre are Borderline 1st rounders or early 2nd rounders..Scouts had Machado as the 1st or 2nd best playmaker in the country, teams like OKC or Pacers might select him with their late 1st round pick..If he had a poor showing at Portsmith..That might effect his stock..All Star settings like these are mostly guard dominated and big men get the ball,so Sacre possibly made the right decision..Teams will be looking at him during workouts to see his court speed & his athleticism..Sacre has a NBA body,improved his rebounding numbers this year..And does a great job of drawing fouls and getting to the line...
A guy that really needs to be on this Roster is Kris Joseph of Syracuse..I guess he thinks he's a lock to become a 1st rounder..But he didnt make any improvements to his game..His stock has fallen so far that he might not get drafted...
agree with Rudeboy, these tourneys purpose have always been to move players stock up...now that the draft been reduced to 2 rounds, these players here are either trying to move into the 2nd round period or possibly "sneak" in the 1st round.
And alot of Times are dominate the ball and play selfish while trying to show scouts thier games and Big Guys in these Tourneys Rarely get the Ball in positions to score...So they have to do other things that Stands Out......
I don't think joseph's play this year was so bad tht he won't even get draft. I think he's at the least a lock for the early-mid second simply off of his athletic ability and defense.
Alex Young I think made a terrific decision to play. His stock is late first, but could fall down to mid second just as easily. Having a dominating performance with some good combine numbers could lock him into the late first.
How come Rob Jones of St Mary's isn't participating? He could use more scouts watching him, he averaged 15pts and 11rebs last year and could be a good physical small forward backup or a stretch four off the bench
- Chace Stanback
- Dee Bost
- Henry Sims
- Yancy Gates
- Kim English
I think those guys will stick in the nba.
Scoop Jardine (Syracuse) has decided to not attend, therefore, not a member of the Roger Brown's.
