2012 NBA Draft Preview (Video)

In a new segment with Tara Petrolino of CineSport, I break down the upcoming NBA Draft, which takes place June 28, in New Jersey. Anthony Davis is the celebrated prize, but this is a draft full of great depth and value, especially in the later stages of the first round.

Illinois big man Meyers Leonard and Washington shooting guard Terrence Ross both have the potential to become very productive NBA players, and both could wind up going out of the lottery. On the other hand, UConn center Andre Drummond is perhaps the draft's biggest enigma, both literally and figuratively. The 19-year-old could go as high as five and low as nine after an underwhelming freshman campaign in the Big East. Other big school prospects such as UNC's Harrison Barnes have me concerned as well.
