Zach LaVine - G - UCLA

With the Suns officially out of the playoffs I started perusing Draft sites and doing some College Hoops research to jump start my Draft interest.

Heard his name thrown around quite a bit, read up a bit on him. Is it a stretch to compare him to Klay Thompson?

Yeah, because he is incredibly raw, and he is kind of undersized for his position. Unbelievable potential, but he's pretty raw right now.

He's a YouTube player. I wouldn't even look at him in the top 20. He dunks and can shoot a little but he's not a good basketball player right now. What's the point of drafting him so he can become Gerald Green for some other team 7-8 years down the road? Should have stayed in school.

His family seems to have decided that he's a great player and they probably think he's going to share his newfound wealth with them

Why do people continue to post this when there is zero evidence showing staying in school does anything for your career or draft position. In fact, most evidence and common sense would suggest the exact opposite.

Re: Zach LaVine - G - UCLA

In this case lavine isn't guaranteed to be a first round pick in this draft, so in other words he isn't guaranteed to make a penny in the NBA. That would be a detrimental to his career.
