Which prospects do you think will be "instant factors" in the NBA

Which players do you guys think will be a instant factor in the NBA. For example while he may not be a first rounder I think Reeves Nelsons rebounding will translate well to the NBA game.It can be someone you have as a #1 pick or someone you have going undrafted it doesnt matter.

me and leroy makes 2 people

me and leroy makes 2 people who believe in reeves nelson. His ball handling, soft touch and perimter shooting are all coming along ahile he is still a very physical player. I thought he outplayed thomas robinson straight up in their match up.

I think Rubio will have an immediate impact, his pass-first mentality combined with Adelman's coaching will have a huge effect on Minny. Technically he still qualifies as a prospect right?

I think Anthony Davis would

I think Anthony Davis would be able to contribute inediatly if he lands in the right system. If he ends up with Don Nelson or Mike D Antoni, I wouldn't be surprised to see him score 20-25 a game in his rookie season.

He is just so fluid in transition, and he is under control, plus his height, handles, and shot make him that much harder to guard.

As Much as I Hate agreeing

As Much as I Hate agreeing with Leroy '' My Mom Spit Shines My Face'' Jenkins about anything..I'm another Big Believer in Reeves Nelson.....He leads my list of underrated players in the country...

I thought he might get picked in the late 1st round in 2012...But his suspension for anger issues and poor attitude might scare away alot of teams from drafting him..Even in the 2nd round....

Harrison Barnes might be the

Harrison Barnes might be the most ready out of all the highly regarded prospects...I'm not saying he's the best out of the bunch..But i think his game is most nba ready...

I Heard Coach Cal say in an interview the other day..That his coaching staff have been working with Davis to help him improve his post game...(They improved Cousins inside play a few years ago) And If Davis can gain improvement in that area by the spring..I think he'll replace Drummond as the top pick....

JAY

I know but the 2011 draft hasn't shown anything either since we are in lockout so there still prospect because they havent played a NBA game in any NBA event.The Combine and work outs where just work outs.So we still wonder how they will do.

- Anthony Davis is simply a

- Anthony Davis is simply a game-changer I think.

- After Gasol, Sullinger could be the best back-to-the-basket scorer from day 1.

- Kidd-Gilchrist's ideal strength/size/athleticism/motor/willingness to do the little things/winning attitude/defensive potential should make him an impact player immediately.

I'm surprised not to see

I'm surprised not to see jared sullinger in your thoughts.... he's skilled, strong and in progress ( seems in great shape ) with a good winning mentality (maybe the most IMPORTANT attribute for a prospect)

lot's of you surely think he doesn't have enough upside but I think he always worked hard and was a great teammate... so I think he will be the most ready player.

Reeves is definitely a

Reeves is definitely a player. Too much skill and toughness there not to work out. The first time I saw him I thought he reminded me of a poor man's love. He's not the same kind of rebounder, but his inside out game and physicality is similar. I'm a fan. Dispite what most think, his attitude concerns are actually what I like about him.
