The skinny: The most skilled low-post scorer NBA scouts have seen in years and years. Huge hands, great footwork, has toned body noticeably in pre-draft work this spring. …Has won an NCAA championship, three FIBA gold medal with U.S. junior national teams and the Illinois state high school championship. … Questions remain about his defense and free-throw shooting (51 percent as a college freshman this past season).

 

The quote: “He’s ready. He carried us this year. He was our best player and he helped us win the national championship and I know he’s ready for June 25.” — Former Duke teammate Quinn Cook.
