2012 NBA Draft Busts Preview (Video)

Posted: Updated:

In another NBA Draft segment with Noah Coslov of CineSport, I break down the injury concerns of former Ohio St. All-American Jared Sullinger and just how far he could slip Thursday night. For a guy with limited athleticism and size (he measured under six-foot eight without shoes), severe question marks over his back problem have cost him a place in the lottery. Sullinger is a great rebounder though and fiery competitor; I currently have him coming off the board at 19 to Orlando but he could slide as low as the mid 20s. Still, it just takes one team to like you and there is enough to like about Sullinger.

I also break down projected top five pick Andre Drummond and why I think he is the draft's biggest bust. Drummond has tremendous size and is a rare athlete, but my worries with him surround his questionable motor and lack of any defined skill.
