I see many people have sam young low on their mock draft i am telling people now he should be a top 5 -10 pick. The man can ball and i will think he will be one of the main rookies to contribute right away.
I like him, but 5-10? I'm higher on him than James Johnson, but I think he's a mid to late first
I think Sam Young will surprise people and go somewhere between 15 and 20 on draft night.
i won't agree that sam young is a top 10 pick, but i am a big fan and agree that he will be a rookie of the year candidate. the guy is a hard worker and tough as nails. i read on espn, he stabbed his arm on a vertical test in toronto and continued to play afterwards. i don't think any player improved their skills over 4 years as much as he did. he came to pitt as an undersized pf and left as a very polished sf.
He is a SUPER athlete...
Being a Toronto native, and a raptors fan, he reminds me of Joey Graham...
Very athletic, can be a huge threat at any time in a game but also streaky, and unpredictable when it comes to game time...
All negatives aside... he will a good role player to any team...
Bulls should grab this guy, no question about it. He's an athletic wing player, who can spot up shoot, take it the basket, finish on the break, defend the perimeter and scrap for rebounds. Outside of that, he grew up a Bulls fan and a Michael Jordan fan. It's a NO BRAINER to me.
BULLS...GO GET THIS GUY!!!
There have been alot of athletic guys in college that come to the NBA and pull duds: Sam young should be a solid back up sg sf for any team. But could pull a Corey Benjamin, Harold Minor..
That's who his game reminds me of, but with the athleticism of a Clyde Drexler. He just has to learn how to take a charge.
I definitely think the Bulls should take this guy. He played well in the Big East and NCAA tournaments. Not only can he score, but is a lockdown defender. The Bulls need good defensive players on the perimeter.
So as a Bulls fan, do we cross our fingers or what?
