Other Players To Consider

Jake Layman

Malcolm Brogdon, SG, Virginia – A ready to contribute wing who can do a little bit of everything on both ends of the floor. Brogdon lacks the ceiling of other prospects and isn’t a great athlete, but he can shoot, create, and defend.

Jake Layman, SF, Maryland – Layman has the size, athleticism, and skills to be the ideal ‘3-and-D’ wing in today’s NBA. He must be more consistent, however, and tended to disappear at times despite his obvious talent.

Chinanu Onuaku, C, Louisville – A strong, athletic center who excels on the defensive end, Onuaku is an ideal backup center with the potential to grow into more if he can develop his offensive game.

Diamond Stone, C, Maryland – The opposite of Onuaku, Stone is a back-to-the-basket big man much like Al Jefferson or Jahlil Okafor. Like Okafor last year, there are huge questions about how he fits in today’s NBA.
