Josh Childress

How is Josh Childress looking? I'm a fan and wonder if you think he'll be back in Greece next year or he makes his way back to the NBA? A lot of teams could use him in the NBA

Childress

Childress was disappointing in the first 3 quarters where it appeared Vesely had the upper hand, but in the 4th quarter and overtime singlehandly won the game. He had the play of the game when he caught an air ball for a dunk to take his team to overtime.

Does he still shoot that set shot off the shoulder or has he changed it to an NBA jumper with some elevation and the ball up around the top of his head?? Know what I mean???

Valanciunas shows nice

Valanciunas shows nice potential but is a borderline 1st rounder at this point. He's been up and down this past year and has a ways to go. Not sure on the Asik contract situation

Jan V.is clearly 1st round talent

For an 18 YR old 6'11 240 pound big man, with soft hands, smooth touch, a good 10 feet from the basket game, and strong defensive presence who still gets to polish his raw game for 1 more year I'd say its safe to say he can be projected ahead of Renardo Sydney and Jeremy Tyley let alone Chandler Parsons.

He does have his weakness's particularly his strength, lack of a face up game, and uncomfortable jumper but based on potential alone he is a Top 20 pick in the 2011 draft.

Also teams with a small market value like Toronto, Milwakee, New Jersey, etc. like to draft European players because they are easier to keep happy and don't mind playing in small market cities which gives Jan V. more value.

At least put him in the 2nd round of the mock draft, come on guys show BIG V some love...

too bad about Trajan Langdon

Too bad about Trajan Langdon not being able to succeed well in the NBA... I really thought he was going to be the next Allan Houston... Anyway, what can I say, he's a great player in Europe and he had a wonderful career there...

Langdon

Actually he made a wise decision being a star in Europe instead of a role guy in the NBA. His bank account has benefited as well making 3 mil per year for a number of seasons. It takes the right personality to adapt to Europe much less Russia.

When is the deadline for the International Early Entrants?

I can't find which ones are staying in the draft and which ones are withdrawing.

June 14th

Not until June 14th. 10 days before the draft. A big advantage for the Int guys like Seraphin.

not an NBA player.
2-thoughts on Nick Calathes ?should the mavs bring him? he has no chance playing bigger role with Diamantidis&Spanoulis at the 1&2

Calathes will take a little while. Mavs should not bring him in for a hwile. Not sure he's NBA.

3-Kevin Seraphin,how good is he?

Very raw. Good potential. Will be interesting if he stays in the draft.

Terrence Morris used to play

Terrence Morris used to play for Maryland. I remember him. I thought he could be a good NBA player. He used to play for the Rockets too.
