2010 NBA Draft Ratings: Derrick Favors

Derrick Favors is expected to be drafted #3 overall by the New Jersey Nets, who desperately need some production out of the PF spot after dragging Yi Jianlian around for two years. Favors will bring much needed defense and rebounding to the frontline, and should make an excellent compliment to the offensive minded/less athletic Brook Lopez.

Favors is the youngest player in this year's draft (and consequently is raw offensively), and still has a lot of room to grow as a player. He has the potential to develop into a cross between Antonio McDyess (athleticism) and Al Horford (defense). There should be all-star games in his future, but we shouldn't be expected to play at a high level in year one.

The top 3 picks in the 2010 draft have ranged from 76 to 80 to 72. I won't be able to effectively sim a draft until more players are completed, but I hope potential ratings are weighted highly by 2K in the draft selection process.

Is this the part where we pretend the series couldn't have gone either way?

Rashidi said...

Wesley Johnson should come later tonight.

Celtics/Lakers ratings might go up if I have time before work tomorrow.

Rashidi said...

Actually it should be Johnson and Cousins tonight. Forgot I didn't post anybody last night.

Hey Rashidi, great job on the draft prospects so far. Do you plan on doing a full draft class
