Basketball: Top-100 draft prospects

For what it’s worth, here’s where Bay Area seniors rank on NBAdraft.net’s list of the top 100 NBA draft propects (click on the names for the Web site’s evaluation & player stats):

– No. 77: Theo Robertson, Cal

– No. 87: Jerome Randle, Cal

– No. 91: Omar Samhan, Saint Mary’s

– No. 98: Landry Fields, Stanford

– No. 100: Patrick Christopher, Cal

Things could change, but sounds like five free agents. Pretty much as we expected.

    It should go…

    Fields
    Christopher
    Samhan
    Boykin
    Robertson
    Randle

    It probably will. Only time will tell though.

  • Kevin Thomas

    I would have thought Christopher would be rated higher. There was a time, in the Ben Braun offense, which allowed more one-on-one, that Patrick could flat out take over a game for a several minutes. The NBA likes that.

    Boykin should not be overlooked. He has an NBA body, he’s a good rebounder, and can shoot with either hand.

  • covinared

    I like Boykin, he really turned out to be a good all around inside player, but he is not tall or quick enough for the nba.

  • TakeOffThatRedShirt

    I agree with RollOn that Fields should be first, but Christopher is not second and Samhan is a joke – maybe the warriors will take a chance on him.

    Fields will be drafted in the second round.

    Randle still should have been Pac 10 MVP though, it’s not an award for the best NBA candidate so don’t let Stanfurd fans tell you otherwise.

    My order:
    (rankings based on absolutely no research)

    55-Fields
    65-Randle
    80-Christopher
    85-Boykin
    90-Theo
    275lbs-Samhan
