    1. Anthony Davis
    2. Thomas Robinson
    3. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
    4. Dion Waiters
    5. Andre Drummond

    6. Quincy Miller

    24. Evan Fournier
    25. Tyshawn Taylor

    26. Meyers Leonard
    27. Terrence Ross
    28. Perry Jones
    29. Festus Ezeli
    30. Fab Melo

    31. Kostas Sloukas
    32. Henry Sims
    33. Terrell Stoglin
    34. Kostas Papanikolaou
    35. Moe Harkless

    36. Leon Radosevic
    37. JaMychal Green
    38. Andrew Nicholson
    39. Drew Gordon
    40. Garrett Stutz

    41. Robert Sacre
    42. Arnett Moultrie
    43. William Buford
    44. Jae Crowder
    45. Jared Cunningham

    46. Jordan Taylor
    47. John Jenkins
    48. Orlando Johnson
    49. Jeffrey Taylor
    50. Tomas Satoransky

    51. Quincy Acy

    I like it when someone challenges the status quo.

    Standing out, Dw at 4
    Barnes and Beal at 11 / 12
    Lilliard at 18....

    Quite a difference here, but usually Hollinger is accurate, usually......


    • #3
      Quincy Miller at #6 sticks out for me.

      I wonder when Nopropsneeded will notice.......


      • #4
        Hope his right,
        If we came away with Barnes/Lillard, Moe Harkless and Quincy Acy (projected around our ranges) I would call it a sucessful draft for once.

          I'm liking Dion Waiters even more. I think Ive said that enough.

            Huh? This is NOT what John Hollinger thinks will happen -- this is his rankings of the players. If his rankings are right and we end up taking Barnes/Lillard, then we just had an UNSUCCESSFUL draft!

            I can't believe Perry Jones is down at #28. Ouch. I've never liked Damian Lillard so I hope the Raptors are reading this. Surprised at Dion Waiters and Quincy Miller. So if the mock drafts are right and Hollinger's rankings are right, then Waiters would be a steal.
            your pal,

              The more I read, the more I like him too. I was encouraged by Hollinger's article, because he reminds us to look at other players who have similar qualities and how they have done in the NBA over the span of their careers, and not just in their first year.

              Not saying I agree with his order necessarily, but it's good to see that Waiters is looked at in some context as less risky than Beal.

                Does Hollinger offer any methodology here?


                • #9
                  Given the Raptors interests in wing players this draft, here is Hollinger's draft rating for perimeter players:

                  Perimeter Players: The Best

                  Dion Waiters Syracuse 14.12
                  Kendall Marshall North Carolina 13.84
                  M. Kidd-Gilchrist Kentucky 13.58
                  Marquis Teague Kentucky 13.18
                  Quincy Miller Baylor 12.94
                  Tony Wroten Washington 12.21
                  Bradley Beal Florida 11.65
                  Kostas Sloukas Greece 11.51
                  Harrison Barnes North Carolina 11.11
                  Will Barton Memphis 10.90
                  Doron Lamb Kentucky 10.65
                  Jeremy Lamb Connecticut 10.50

                  Remember, these are projected PER ratings three or four years into their pro careers (or so I understand). Here's what he had to say about Waiters:

                  "I have Waiters fourth for similar reasons. His size, 6-foot-4, is more of a concern, but whatever team made him a promise did a wise thing. Waiters projects as the best small wing since Dwyane Wade, and he'd be a steal if somebody got him in the Nos. 8-10 range currently being discussed."

                  His Quincy Miller evaluation also caught me by surprise:

                  "The other wing everybody is sleeping on is Quincy Miller of Baylor, who put up a strong mark despite coming off an ACL injury. He has more questions marks because of the knee and his bony build, but he is long and can score. The stories of him slipping have me baffled, because he rates as a top-10 pick."

                  He wasn't as high on Beal and Barnes:

                  "Two other wings who will be drafted highly don't rate as strongly: Beal and Harrison Barnes. Most players in their range turn out to be solid, but this part of the pool doesn't produce many stars. I'd be more comfortable taking these two in the later part of the lottery."

                  One last quote on Lillard:

                  "One player that Draft Rater isn't crazy about is Damian Lillard of Weber State, who compiled strong numbers but did so against a weak schedule and is much older than most of the prospects at his position. He not only failed to outrank the top point guards above but also rates behind the less-heralded Tyshawn Taylor of Kansas. No. 6 clearly seems a stretch for Lillard, who looks more like a mid-to-late first-rounder in this analysis."

                  Take it for what it's worth. For me, I've always liked Waiters (that's my opinion, not Hollinger's).

                    PER ratings, data from past drafts and career paths that followed,....basically the world's most complicated formula....that, and what he says in the first paragraph on the op

                      I thought Lillard was the second most efficeint player in the nation after Davis. Interesting that he's ranked so low. Also Moe Harkless isn't even in the first round. I guess he hasn't found a way to calculate potential.


                      • #12
                        Age is a big factor in Hollinger's projections and Lillard is from the same high school class as DeRozan and Ed Davis.

                          Its his annual draft rater, which takes college stats, and projects them to a PER score, based on a number of factors too complicated to explain. has an explanation of it somewhere, though.

                          Its been surprisingly correct year after year, with only the occasional miss...

                          Thus, I am now sold on Dion Waiters. Heh.


                          • #14
                            Terrence Jones with the 8th pick would fill a need the Raptors have at SF.

                              Here is Hollinger's 2010 ratings and draft board....not too bad actually in retrospect...
