James Johnson = Jeff Green/Jared Dudley
Who else thinks James Johnson is the most underrated forward prospect in this draft?
Like his all-around game.
What a steal he'd be at the end of the first round.
I rank his upside somewhere between Jeff Green (high) and Jared Dudley (low).
I think he won't be as good as Jeff Green, but he will be better than Dudley for sure. He has good all around skills to go with a strong frame and NBA athleticism. However, I project him as a tweener in the NBA because of a less than stellar first step. If he comes out this year or next year he will be a top-15 pick. I think he has a chance to become a starter if he can continue to polish his ball handling and 3 point shooting, but he still has a ways to go to maximize his potential.
i did a post on this a week ago and i thought of jeff green with more athleticism but some guys brought in a good comparison of wilson chandler
he's not as good an athlete or defender as chandler...i think he is like a ryan gomes
