The 2010 NBA Drafts Early Entry FAILS
This year a record number of underclassmen entered the draft, I think around 74 or something ridiculous, (we’ll got the list still up on our sidebar) and while the draft did have a record number of underclassmen drafted there was also a record number of underclassman who didn’t. Out of the 60 players picked in the draft 35 of them were underclassmen, 24 were taken in the first round and 11 in the second. Which means over half of the underclassmen that declared didn’t get drafted.
Sylven Landesberg – Virginia (Sophomore): To me this guy has potential and seeing that’s what everyone was drafting on I don’t see why he wasn’t picked. He averaged 17 points and 6 rebounds as a sophomore in the ACC, you can’t get much better than that. But still with two years left, he could have done one more and averaged 20 and probably gotten drafted.
Manny Harris – Michigan (Junior): I thought Manny would get drafted. At 6’4 he has an all around game. He averaged 18 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists last year, numbers that are comparable if not better than John Wall’s. But in the NBA he’s what you call a tweener…he’s a shooting guard that can’t shoot the three trapped in a point guards body. He should make it on someone’s summer league team, but I doubt he’ll get picked up. It’ll be onto the D League for him.
AJ Ogilvy – Vanderbilt (Junior): I really don’t even think this guy thought he was going to get drafted. He got worst and worst every year in college. As a freshman he averaged 17 points and 7 rebounds, last season only 13 points and 7 rebounds. That’s not what scouts call a player that has “potential”. He’s from Australia anyways, so he’ll probably end up playing pro over there.
Charles Garcia – Seattle (Junior): He had a lot of hype surrounding him after going for 41 on game during the season, but after that I didn’t hear much about him. Reading around it sounds like his stock dropped because he didn’t do good in workouts.
