What I'd love to know even

What I'd love to know even more than WHO you think will raise/lower their stocks is also WHY. Especially you two that posted above me, not to be a pain in the ass and force you to post again, I'm just curious as to why you think what you think, cause I think your choices are very interesting...

I didn't post these but I definately agree with them.

Brandon Jennings- No ones really had a chance to see any of the inevitable improvement in his game since he has been over seas the past year.

James Johnson- An all around skilled player who has had the spotlight taken from him due to playing with Teague, whom I have recently decided is slightly over rated. His comparison on this site is Kevin Johnson? No sir! The guy is not that great a passer. He is more of an Eddie House. Back to James Johnson, his over all skill level will show in these workouts and in turn move him up many draft boards.

Tyreke Evans (Daniel Gibson) and Jordan Hill (Loren Woods)- I think both have benefited from playing against the "College level" players. I don't think their transition will be easy. They realy haven't been tested by defenders with elite lever quickness and strength.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Help:

Terence Williams- will do great on defensive drills. Over all athleticism will be confirmed. I mean, the guy is a jump shot away from being Stephen Jackson. He should definitely be moved up on any draft board that has him where NBAdraft.net has him.

Jeff Pendergraph and Jeff Adrien- Both big men that can add depth to championship contenders (Cleveland and L.A.) who will be taking the last two picks of the first round.

Hurt:

Wayne Ellington and Stephen Curry- Both incredible shooters. Defensive skills are suspect and will probably be exploited even more in an NBA work out.

I believe Jennings will be

I believe Jennings will be helped out a lot by the workouts. I don't see Evans having much problems unless he is measured shorter than he is listed. I believe Stephen Curry has just enough athleticism not to be seen as a slow great shooter that can not get their shot off. Curry may get drafted later than he should and prove a lot of Gm's to be stupid.

EVans and Gibson are nothing

EVans and Gibson are nothing alike. Gibson is purely a shooter and is underszied for his position. Evans is a combo guard who can play both with no jumper at all.
