NBA Draft 2013 Scouting Reports

SB Nation's Big Board

Jonathan Tjarks gives his ranking of the top prospects in the 2013 NBA Draft. His rankings deviate from the norm and they will be periodically updated as we get closer to the June 27 draft.

Anthony Bennett scouting report

Anthony Bennett is one of the top prospects to come out of UNLV in quite some time, but how high should he go in the 2013 NBA Draft?

Ben McLemore scouting report

The Kansas shooting guard is expected to be the top perimeter player picked in the 2013 NBA Draft, but is he too passive for his own good?

Alex Len scouting report

Alex Len is one of the most difficult prospects to read in the 2013 NBA Draft. Is he a hidden beast victimized by bad teammates, or is he being overhyped?

Michael Carter-Williams scouting report

Michael Carter-Williams' physical tools make him a prospect with a lot of upside. We analyze the Syracuse point guard's game.

Nerlens Noel scouting report

Nerlens Noel is seen as the likely No. 1 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, but there are questions about his health and game. Is he worthy of the top choice?

Trey Burke scouting report

The Michigan point guard dazzled the nation all season, but is he going to be a star in the NBA?

Cody Zeller scouting report

Is the Indiana big man being underrated after a torrent of criticism following a so-so sophomore season? We evaluate the Hoosiers' prospect.

Otto Porter scouting report

Otto Porter is one of the surest things in a draft full of uncertainty, but does he have the upside to merit being picked high in the lottery?

Victor Oladipo scouting report

Few prospects made as big a jump as Victor Oladipo this season, but is he worthy of being drafted near the top of the lottery?


Tony Mitchell scouting report

North Texas' Tony Mitchell fell off the map after a down sophomore season, but he has lottery-level talent and could make someone very happy late in the draft.

Giannis Adetokunbo scouting report

Giannis Adetokunbo is one of the draft's biggest mysteries. Is the 18-year-old Nigerian native a future star, or just another young international prospect that'll fade away.

Dennis Schroeder scouting report

Dennis Schroeder has as much upside as any young point guard in the 2013 NBA Draft. Will he realize his potential in the NBA?

Gorgui Dieng scouting report

Louisville's ace big man is a late-bloomer, but his combination of shot-blocking and offensive skills makes him an intriguing option in the middle of the first round.

Allen Crabbe scouting report

The Pac-12 Player of the Year is projected to go somewhere in the middle of the first round, but should he go higher?

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scouting report

Playing for lowly Georgia caused Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to fall off the map a bit, but he is an accomplished NBA Draft prospect that could make a team happy in the middle of the first round.

Jamaal Franklin scouting report

The last time a do-everything wing player from San Diego State was in the NBA Draft, it was Kawhi Leonard. Can Jamaal Franklin follow in his footsteps?

Erick Green scouting report

Erick Green fell off the map thanks to Virginia Tech's struggles, but he could be one of the top sleepers in this draft.

Sergey Karasev scouting report

Is Sergey Karasev the best international prospect in the 2013 NBA Draft? We break down his game in this scouting report.

C.J. McCollum scouting report

Is C.J. McCollum the guy to follow in the footsteps of other small-college point-guard prospects like Damian Lillard and Stephen Curry?

Mason Plumlee scouting report

Is Mason Plumlee a legitimate prospect, or is he a stiff? We examine the Duke big man.

Reggie Bullock scouting report

North Carolina has produced a number of productive wing players over the years. Is Reggie Bullock next?

Shabazz Muhammad scouting report

Shabazz Muhammad has been the target of intense scrutiny for his off-court baggage, but there are questions about his on-court talent as well.

Kelly Olynyk scouting report

The Gonzaga big man came out of nowhere to become one of the top offensive forces in college basketball, but will his game translate well to the pros?

Steven Adams scouting report

Pittsburgh's Steven Adams is the draft's biggest project, but the team that drafts him could benefit if they are willing to wait and let him develop.

Lucas Nogueira scouting report

Teams looking to draft and stash a prospect overseas for a few years should take a long look at Lucas Nogueira, a Brazilian center who has been playing professionally in Spain.
