Two Seniors with great upside

I have been watching okla. st. alot and have seen alot James Anderson. No doubt he is an impressive player but in further observation I am really starting to like Obi Mounelo. He is also a tremendous talent with more handles and seems to be a smaller version of Caron Butler. He is an intriguing player not on anyones boards and I think he should be a late second rounder. I think that given the same green light option is James anderson he could be just as succesful.

Kevin Ubiles Siena, I saw him for the first time versus butler. I thought he over dribbled to much but had nice length. Saw him again and than saw some more athleticism. If this guy would bulk up slightly not to much to lose that elusivenesss and get some contact when he goes through the hole I see him as a early first round prospect. His stature doesnt say super athlete but teh combination of his size, and nba athleticism he looks to me like a Larry Hughes plus 1 type prospect.

What are your opinions on these over looked players and or any other

His name is Edwin Ubiles.
His name is Edwin Ubiles. And I don't think either of these two has "upside," but Ubiles probably could contribute right now.

I disagree with Obi Muonelo

I disagree with Obi Muonelo having a lot of potential. He has no doubt improved his game over the years and is a tough guy with some range, but I see him as one of the many solid 10-12 ppg college starters who just don't have what it takes to play at the next level. I think he is a D-League caliber player, who lacks a true position. At 6'5'' 220 with a good outside shot allows him to play the 2 guard at a college level but he also plays a lot of 3 because of his rebounding and strength, but he isn't an NBA 2 guard, and at 6'5'' he lacks the length to play the 3 in the NBA. He may at some point make is way into the league, but I think only on a 10 day level or as a 12th man, I think he can make a lot of money playing overseas, I think that is his best bet.

Adi and Joe

When you get a chance check out the next Oklahoma st. games as well as Ubiles against some higher up teams and tell me what you think. Ubiles in my opinion has some upside. I probably wont get a chance to see these players drafted unless Isaiah Thomas gets back in the front office. But just wanted some opinions on these players. Thanks for your insight

Scotti and Deshaun have reached there peaks.

"Scotti and Dashaun" isnt

"Scotti and Dashaun" isnt how you spell their names...

How do you reach your full potential if there are still things you can get better at?? Reynolds needs to become a better shooter and defender. Butler needs to learn to create his own shot off the dribble. Both need to get stronger.

Im a big Muenelo guy as

Im a big Muenelo guy as well. He reminds me of Kelenna Azuibuike. He slashes well because he's strong and he's a nice shooter, he's a very slept on guy who I think could succeed for a team like Golden State or Pheonix. But I don't think he's going to be much better than he is right now. VERY slept on prospect thought. Good pick.
