Latavious Williams, F – D-League

The three appealing names on this list:

Jordan Crawford: Crawford is famous for “dunking on” LeBron James, last off season during a skills camp. He originally attended Indiana University but transferred to Xavier. In his lone year at Xavier he averaged 20.5 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.3 steals. He scored at least 27 points in his three NCAA tournament games including a season high 32 vs. Kansas State. He was named to the Sporting News All-American Third Team. Crawford is 6’4″ with a 6-7 wingspan and shot 39% from three which makes him very appealing.

Hamady N’Diaye: The Senegal native is a physical specimen with a 7-4 wingspan and a 9-3 standing reach. His 4.5 blocks per game was the third highest in the nation. The 6’11” center was named the Big East Defensive Player of the Year. He had 6+ blocks in 7 games and 10+ rebounds in 9 games. He will be an intriguing selection in the second round because of size, athleticism and aggressiveness. N’Diaye also has experience playing all four years at Rutgers and is 23 years old.

Deon Thompson: The four year player increased his points, rebounds and steals in each of his four seasons. He started the season well scoring 20+ points in 4 of his first 7 games. His length (7-2 wingspan) came very handy in the post and helped him block at least 2 shots in 10 games. Being a three year starter and making 2 NCAA Final Fours (one chip) helped him set a new NCAA record with 152 game appearances.
