Who do you think will be the next star wing player coming into the league the next couple of years?

Who do you think will be the next star wing player coming into the league the next couple of years? The last couple of years we have seen some very good wing players come on the scene.X.Henry looks to be a very good swingman that can shoot some and has the frame to have a pro body.If he shores up his handle some I think he could fit the bill.Tyreke Evans looks to have a good mix of skills but his jump shot is suspect.Not sold on D.Derozan kind of a bust to this point but it's early.J.Holiday is more of a combo that I think will end up a point but could end up playing the two so I'll throw him in there as well, I like his game.I think X.Henry has the best chance but I'm sure I looked over somebody Just was wondering are there any guys that you think could burst on to the scene similar to K.Durant and OJ Mayo.

forgot about harden he should have been first on my list

J.Harden should have been the first person that I mentioned, as close to a can't miss prospect as you're gonna get in the next couple of drafts as far as wing players go.

I agree

I agree with Harden. Out of all of the players you listed he has the smallest amount of downside while having similar/better upside. Even in a worst case Harden would be a rotation player.

Earl Clark

I think Earl Clark has the potential to develop into a great NBA player and scorer. He is tall, about 6'9" I think and is agile and has a strong upper body so he won't be pushed around. He goes to the rim well and has a decent outside shot that will most likely improve in upcoming years. However his one downfall is that he is extremely lazy on the court at times and this may sneak up on him and cause him to level out as a player and athlete, but other than that I could see him becoming like a Tracy McGrady type of player. I also think Chase Bulinger may turn out to be an all-star in the league he is tall, jumps well, and have a very good outside shot. He is athletic for a white boy and has a good amount of muscle so he won't be pushed around.

Earl Clark is going to be very good

Earl Clark is going to be very good. I do think he gets a little lacadasical out there on the floor but for the most part he's a good player with a very wide range of skills.He reminds me of Rudy Gay in the since that he might be more effective in the pro game. The only other problem I have with him is his handle at times thats the aspect of his game where he gets the most lazy.Budinger is pretty good as well mostly a shooter but he has what it takes would like to see him get a little better handling the rock and creating his own shot, but he has plenty of time to develop.

Dont Sleep on D. Summers, D. James, or T. Smith

I agree that Earl Clark has tremendous upside, somebody just needs to light a fire under that man for him to realize his potential. He seems to just coast at times and look uninterested. A few others I could see having some success are Dajuan Summers, Damion James, and Tyler Smith. I like Summers because of his versatility, he can put it on the floor, take it to the rack, and hit the spot up jumper. Thats not forget he's a system player at GTown and isnt asked to lead his team night in and night out. I also really like Damion James, I had a chance to see him play and besides being a physical specimen the dude can go. He may not be doing what most thought he would this year but he has put up some solid numbers. I also think that some college players will make much better pros, and he fits this mode. He's more less a glue guy in Texas, as the set 86 ball screens for Abrams everytime down! He could be the best athlete in the draft, and if he keeps working on his handle and jumper I could see him like a Stephen Jackson or Josh Howard type. Tyler Smith is very versatile guy who I think could be something like a James Posey

I these three guys they all have a place in the league

They may not be stars but they all are guys that would fit well with good teams they all have that glue guy factor.They all can be catagorized as combo forwards and with the way the game has been going recently that position has become important.James is a athletic dynamo and is a very good rebounder.Tyler Smith does a little bit of everything if he can stick the J more he could see his stock rise.Summers is as underated as you can get, like his offensive game.I wish he could be a bit more aggressive on offense, but I know that Princeton system doesn't allow for that. I like the fact that all these guys can give a team a good look if the opposing team decides to go small at the 4.I wish James would take over a bit more but like Summers I guess the offense isn't looking for him.

Devin Ebanks Will Light The NBA On Fire Whenver He Comes Out

West Virginia Mountaineer, Devin Ebanks, is a going to be a beast whenever he decides to go to the NBA. He's in the Rudy Gay/Kevin Durant/Tracy Mcgrady mold, a 6'8 or 6'9 wiry player, with guard like skills and a ton of athleticism. A future All-Star player in the NBA, in my opinion, with a another year or two of tutelage, from Bob Huggins. This kid got an enormous amount of potential. Just check this high school You Tube mix of him.

Earl Clark is good too, but I think he's going to be more like Dallas forward, Shawne Williams, the former Memphis standout because Clark lacks the quickness of fellow 6'8, 6'9 players like Tracy Mcgrady, Rudy Gay, and Kevin Durant, the guard like handle, and he doesn't have the same type of athleticism as them either.

Looks like he belongs in the discussion

Looks like he's a K.Durant clone and has a lot of skill. Kind of glad you you brought him up.Could definitely breakout in the next couple of years, hopefully Huggins will coach him up.If he gets this guy to be a serious defender he could be All-Star good.

ebanks

don, what else about ebanks besides his athleticism makes u think hes a tmac/durant? Durant put up one of the sickest freshman seasons ever. He basically scored anytime he wanted and shot the ball all over the court. And we all know tmac is tmac. we will never know what he would have done in the NCAA but he's a bonafide superstar. Devin Ebanks has very little offensive game to speak of. I've watched him play on west virginia and i agree he's a stud athlete but I didn't see anything about his game offensively to garner comparisons to tmac or durant. Honestly, he reminds me of tyrus thomas with less intensity. Or, who's to say HE'S not the next shawne williams?

I Disagree

Ebanks got game, just look at the first You Tube video I have of him. He's no where in the realm of Tyrus Thomas, he can whoop him in a pick up game any day, I bet you that. lol Tyrus Thomas is similar to Stromile Swift, and Ebanks game is totally different. The reason why he's not scoring a lot is because # 1, he's just a freshman on a mature team and he doesn't have to, because all Bob Huggins wants him to do is play defense and rebound, and # 2, Ebanks is playing out of position, he's a natural small forward, that can slide to the shooting guard position every now and then, and for the Mountaineers he's playing center, so it is going to take time for him to adjust. Patience is the case with Devin Ebanks, just wait till next season or so, and you'll see what I'm talking about, this kid is special.

ebanks

All solid points. I respect your oppinion and will keep a closer eye on him in the future. His rebounding stats alone warrant a closer look and i agree he is probably playing out of position. Time will tell on this one.

Looks are deceiving.

Devin Ebanks does have potential but he hasnt produced in college as well as people thought as of right now. He may end up staying up to two more years. There's been alot of players that just looked great, but never panned out, josh mcroberts, corey brewer, adam morrison, andrea bargnani, and even as far back as darius miles, or dajuan wagner who in high school looked like he could have been the next MJ. Sometimes things just dont happen like they look like they should. I do appreciate Ebanks being brought up because i think he has more potential than just about anyone on the wing in the next couple drafts and not many people recognize it, but i can see paul george out of fresno state moving up the draft boards and being a top 8 pick in the 2010 draft and really coming on fast for a struggling team, ala Andre Iguodala, monta ellis, brandon roy. At this point in time the odds are slim but he has all the tools necessary. Im not as high on the Damion James and Earl Clark bandwagon as others, they remind me of a more athletic corliss williamson/rodney rogers type players. Dajuan Summers will be a good player as well as sam young who has the potential to be a bully at the 2 guard position. Look for chase budinger to be an early producer. I dont see any bonafide superstars at the 2 or 3, but a few at the one.

Solid

James Harden is well rounded, developed and strong. He reminds me of more of a 2 guard version of gilbert arenas, even their looks, he's not as good of a shooter but his mechanics are good and he has very little wasted motion in his shot just like gilbert arenas does. He should step in and be a key member to whatever team he ends up going to, if it is oklahoma city then everybody better watch out, they could potentially, in spells, go four guard with westbrook, him, durant and green with wilcox at the 5 and just run on teams and stretch defenses out and get up and down the court.

NBA

Teammates Malik Hairston and Maarty Luenen unexpectedly heard their names called but Taylor didn’t.

Well

I think you guys are forgetting about al-farouq Aminu whos a beast down in Wake Forest. I cant believe im about to say this...Stanley Robinson has tons of potential just doesn't have the will to work on his game. If he finds it he could be very solid but not a star. Honestly i dont see what people see in Earl Clark and not Stanley, they play very similarly only Earl gets the ball more cuz UCONN is retarded. But, overall Aminu is the nxt star at wingman.
