Most NBA Ready Prospect in this year's draft

Who do you all think the most NBA ready prospect is in this year's draft? I'm talking about a guy who could come in right away and start for a playoff team. I think its Mario Hezonja.

Okafor has a defined skill

Okafor has a defined skill set that will clearly translate to the NBA (low post scoring). I don't think he has the most long term potential, but it wouldn't surprise me if he won rookie of the year next season. I could definitely see him putting up pretty good stats right out of the gate.

bold choice

I don't think anybody would have predicted Michael Carter Williams winning ROY so who knows.

well

Well it's gotta be Cauley-Stein since as far as potential goes, his floor is high and his ceiling is low, along with the fact that his best attribute is the most easy to translate to the pro level (defense).

Have to agree

WCS is the most NBA ready, not saying will be the best, but comes in with a definite skill set that will get him on the floor day one of the NBA season. When you can guard 4-5 positions on the floor of an NBA game your ready.

Not stars

To me Okfor and Russell are both going to be productive when they come one, but the guys that can come in and play a role seem more ready to me.

I think we see Kaminsky, Grant, Hunter and Portis come into contribute right away.

I don't think there was a rookie from this year's draft who started for a playoff team.

Marcus Smart. The Celtics

Marcus Smart. The Celtics started winning as soon as Smart became our starting point guard/team leader.

Meanwhile, lesser players

Meanwhile, lesser players populate the First Team All Rookie squad, guys putting up inefficient numbers on horrible teams. While Smart was rallying the team after the Rondo trade, playing Tony Allen level defense while being one of the most clutch fourth quarter scorers in the league.

it's a 3 way tie

Harrell,Christmas,Dekker.

none of these players will have to much trouble adjusting,because none of them need much adjusting.

As far as who of the lottery ranked players is most ready ,assuming you mean their game is most suited to the nba and that they are strong enough to quickly contribute: got to be Russell.
