NBA Draft: Early Entry List & International Players

trey-burke-nba-draftThis year’s NBA Draft is a little light on stars, but it is filled with many rotation players who can contribute right away.

We all know the potential NBA Lottery picks (Nerlens Noel, Alex Len, Otto Porter), but the list of other underclassmen is very long.

Many early entries will just participate in the process and find out their draft stock is not where they want it to be. They will go back to school in hopes of having a breakout season in college.

Here is a list of early entries and international players currently available to be selected in the 2013 NBA Draft. Continue reading

NBA Draft: Anthony Bennett to have surgery

Anthony+Bennett+UNLV+NBA+DraftAnthony Bennett, the best power forward prospect in this year’s NBA Draft, will miss the entire draft process to have shoulder surgery.

The UNLV freshman decided to forego his college career and enter the NBA Draft after they were eliminated from the NCAA Tournament.

Bennett is still set to be a top-five selection, since he’s one of the most-skilled power forward prospects to enter the draft in some time. He has a vast array of post moves, which is something a big man usually doesn’t already possess before they enter the NBA.

Bennett is not the only prospect that will miss the draft process. Centers Alex Len (Maryland) and Nerlens Noel (Kentucky) will also miss draft camp and summer league. In Noel’s case, he will most likely miss most of his rookie season due to his ACL injury last season.

#5 UNLV (25-9) vs. #12 California (20-11) is a game filled with talent. Most of it is on the UNLV side, but Cal has a couple scorers worth watching.

Will NBA prospect UNLV’s Anthony Bennett make a splash in the tournament or will he be the latest “one & done” college athlete to only leave a ripple?
