I really think a lot of teams will make a mistake and pass on him in the begging of the 2nd round. To me he is under sized but is a very quick and a physical player with great heart and determination and good leadership. He will shock a lot of scouts and prove them wrong.
hopefully with chuck hayes' success in the play-offs, the undersized pf's will get more attention.
I like him as a college 4 but in the NBA c'mon. You can put him in when Brandon Bass checks in or Brandon Wright but he can't contain bonafide Bigs. IMO i'd pass on him and take guys who I think can play their perspective positions better in the NBA ie; Heytfelt, Cunningham, T. Douglas, Danny Green.
I think Adrien will be a solid backup PF. He can post up and shoot the midrange jumper. Even though he is short his huge wingspan makes up for it. I think Adrien will get drafted in the middle of the second round.
A good role player for a great team. Not a Star but a stud. A very valuable commodity to any bench.
I feel like he is just like Joey Dorsey last year, but with lower rebounding and shot blocking ability...and Dorsey was hardly able to get on the court this year. I like Adrien, don't get me wrong, but i dont think he will be able to contribute on a particularly significant level in the league. At least not for 4-5 years or so, and then he may be a decent backup.
A players talent is not always why he doesnt play.
Sometimes the NBA is about numbers. Dorsey may become the next Ben Wallace.
Dorsey was just unlucky to play behind Landry and Hayes, if they went down he would have gotten a shot
