would you draft avery bradley?

I think id have to pass personally hes 6-2 and cant play point not even a 2 to 1 t/o ratio his main skill is supposed to be scoring ok he averaged 11 ppg at a high level but he only shot 43 percent also. I see his main values supposed to be potential but im not sure where that plays into the above facts. is he somehow going to learn how to become an nba pg and if he had the potential to become a pg why hasnt he shown it yet?

this site has him listed at 12th

another well respected site has him listed at 28th. hes been compared to aaron afflalo and his defense is supposed to be one of his biggest strengths I think I would draft him in the low 20s on certanitly not 12th

i forgot to mention afflalo has three inches on him

which would be more of a traditional 2 I see bradley stuggling quite alot to find his place in the league at first maybe ever.

i got him going like 19 to

i got him going like 19 to boston. as long as he goes to a team that has veterans to lead him, i think he will do fin. i mean the big 3 havent hurt rondos growth as a player.

idk..

I agree he's gonna have to wait a bit, and go to a team where he could learn.

His offense was pretty raw in HS, so that tells you somethin. But, you can't teach athleticism.. and his defense is pretty good.

Bradley's stock is one that

Bradley's stock is one that will rise or fall drastically on the basis of his pre-draft work-outs. Personally if i were the Pacers i would take a good hard look at him. He was the best lock down perimeter defensive player in college basketball this year and there is always a place for that. If players like Westbrook can learn to play point i am sure that Bradley will be able to as well. The Pacers really need another scorer as well, Bradley if he reaches his potential will be a great NBA scorer like Monta Ellis and someone like that is generally good to have on your team.

One of the best Jump Shots in

One of the best Jump Shots in the draft

The best perimeter defender

One of the most explosive athletes

The best Gaurd (other than Wall)

Ive got him at 15 Milwaukee after workouts and if he proves he can run the point he will go at 12

I'd take him. I didn't like

I'd take him. I didn't like him much, if anyone hadn't noticed, but he's grown on me with the way George Hill (who is nearly the same EXACT player) looked in the playoffs, I think Bradley could find a niche in the NBA in a year or 2 as a combo guard who can score in transition and off jump shots while playing outstanding defense on PG's. I think Bradley can play with guys like D.Wade, Lebron, or Tyreke Evans and be a kind of valuable piece because he can probably set up an offense, make basic passes and play off the ball for long stretches.

draftable...definitely

i don't think you've been reading much espn on the workouts. this guy measured 6-3 in shoes with 6-7 wingspan. he really showed a great jumper in las vegas and people really had a trouble scoring on him. he's getting looks from lottery teams that are looking for starting and backup 2g's: utah, indiana, and memphis. i don't think he'll slip past chicago.

This Guys Stock Will Rise

This Guys Stock Will Rise After Combine. Great Defender, Outrageous scorer, Little undersized, but with good mentoring/coaching can do well. I expect big things from him.

Hes athletic, plays hard,

Hes athletic, plays hard, hustles, plays good defense, very quick and fast, and HES ONLY 19 YEARS OLD. Its too early to give up and say that he can never be an NBA PG. If im a team like the Pacers, id seriously consider him at #10. With proper development, you could be looking at another Russell Westbrook.

Bledsoe

I'd rather have Bledsoe.

Bledsoe's faster and just as athletic. They are both young and being drafted on potential... I think Bledsoe has more upside.

"Eric is one the fastest players I've ever coached. His length (78" wingspan) and outstanding leaping ability (40" vertical) allow him to play bigger than listed. He's a true competitor and I expect him to contribute right away as a freshman." - John Calipari

I wouldn't draft him in the top 12...

But any pick after the 12th I wouldn't be averse to taking him.

Eric Bledsoe and Avery

Eric Bledsoe and Avery Bradley stock is rising but i think Bledsoe will go higher than most think he will Bradley could go 10-- 25 range though so we will see.

@Mr.6000 I agree with

@Mr.6000

I agree with everything you said 100%. Do you think the Pacers should take a look at him or would the 10th pick be too much of a reach for him?

I think the Pacers should

I think the Pacers should look past him and go for Cole Aldrich if they can. Bradley has to be in a perfect type of system to succeed, and I don't think he's a pure enough PG to play for Indiana. He'd probably have to see a bunch of time at PG, and that's not really good for him. He's not truly better as a true PG than anyone on Indy's current roster.

yeah i dont think some people

yeah i dont think some people have been reading about his workouts or how good he looks while training and out playing other draft prospects. the fact is hes a baller. reguardless if he finds a set position he will be a first round pick and a pretty good nba player. even if hes never a great offensive player he can be a lock down defender
