pick who u would rather have
Archie Goodwin '12 OR Rodney Purvis '12
Marcus Smart '12 OR Kentavious Caldwell '11
PJ Hairston '11 OR Adonis Thomas '11
Branden Dawson '11 OR Wayne Blackshear '11
Rodney Hood '11 OR Dorian Finney-Smith '11
Quincy Miller '11 OR James McAdoo '11
Josiah Turner '11 OR Tony Wroten '11
Michael Gilchrist '11 OR LeBryan Nash '11
I am assuming you mean as long term prospects, rather than just this year:
Archie Goodwin '12 OR Rodney Purvis '12: Rodney Purvis. I like Goodwin a lot, but I think that Purvis is super explosive and might have a brighter future.
Marcus Smart '12 OR Kentavious Caldwell '11: Marcus Smart. He has a lot more bulk than Caldwell-Pope and plays with reckless abandon. Really hope he succeeds, not saying that Caldwell-Pope will not.
PJ Hairston '11 OR Adonis Thomas '11: PJ Hairston. Think he has a defined wing position, is a solid scorer and shooter and is built like a tank. Thomas may be more athletic and possibly possess more upside, but I have not been incredibly high on him from what I have seen. So, I am going with PJ for now, though I have a feeling they both stay in college for a few years.
Branden Dawson '11 OR Wayne Blackshear '11: Branden Dawson. I think Blackshear is the better scorer, but Dawson is another who plays with reckless abandon and is a kid I want to see do well. Blackshear has more of a defined position, but if Dawson works on his All-Around game, he could be a really unique wing player. This has nothing to do with Blackshear's injury, which I hope he bounces back from.
Rodney Hood '11 OR Dorian Finney-Smith '11: Dorian Finney-Smith. Expect him to have more of an early impact and feel he has a stronger skill set. Things could change, but I like Finney-Smith as of right now
Quincy Miller '11 OR James McAdoo '11: Quincy Miller. It is a tough choice, but I think that Miller has a chance to be one of the better wing players in this draft. McAdoo has some more bulk and a much better post game, but I do not think he possesses Miller's overall scoring ability or athleticism. This will be an interesting one to see play out.
Josiah Turner '11 OR Tony Wroten '11: Tony Wroten. Just feel he is incredibly talented and should be a very nice match-up problem at the 1. Both should have strong impact as freshmen, but I like Wroten better as a NBA prospect, even if he is more of a hybrid than a "true" PG.
Michael Gilchrist '11 OR LeBryan Nash '11: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. This could go either way as well. Nash is set up to succeed at the college level, he already has a pro body. Kidd-Gilchrist still needs some development as far as the physical game is concerned, but his instincts and speed are top notch. I think that Mike is a slasher and will be a fantastic defender, a major spark for any team he is on. He just has seemed to be a winner where ever he goes, definitely imposing his will on the outcome.
