Second Round | back to the First Round


Senior Guard
Cincinnati
6-1, 200

2001-02 Stats:
PPG: 22.0
RPG: 3.0
APG: 5.2

Selected by:
Golden State Warriors

Steve Logan
Notes: First Team All-American, 2-Time C-USA POTY
The Skinny:
Logan is a great shooter, scorer, and an even-keel defender. He really needs a growth spurt to have any impact in the NBA. Though he’s listed at 6-1, he won the Frances Pomeroy Naismith Award as the top player 6-0 or under this year. Hmmm . . .

Junior Guard

6-5, 201

2001-02 Stats:
PPG: 18.6
RPG: 3.2
APG: 4.1

Selected by:
Chicago Bulls

Roger Mason Jr.
Notes: Second-team All-ACC
The Skinny:
Offensive-minded with a solid perimeter game, though could use some polish. It’s not like the Bulls are loaded, however . . .

2001-02 Stats:
PPG: 10.6
RPG: 5.5
APG: 1.3

Selected by:
Memphis Grizzlies

Robert Archibald
Notes: Third team All-Big Ten
The Skinny:
You would like to see better numbers from a center like Archibald in a parity-riddled Big Ten. That said, he’s adjusted to his surroundings, hailing from Scotland, and thus still learning the game and the position. He’s solidly built and shouldn’t be pushed around much inside.

Senior Forward
Tennessee
6-7, 210

2001-02 Stats:
PPG: 18.1
RPG: 7.5
APG: 2.8

Selected by:
Denver Nuggets

Vincent Yarbrough
Notes: First-team All-SEC
The Skinny:
Quite a solid pick, I must say. Vincent is smart, dedicated, and shouldn’t have issues making the transition to the bigs. He will have to grow into the role, however.

PPG: 24.1
RPG: 11.9
APG: 1.5

Selected by:
Milwaukee Bucks

Dan Gadzuric
Notes: Honorable-Mention All-Pac 10
The Skinny:
A shot-blocker deluxe, but then so was Shawn Bradley. Plays like he’s not interested half the time, and the rest of the time he’s either streaky or hurt. But he’s tall, so I’m surprised he’s not in the lottery.

Junior Center
Duke
6-9, 280

2001-02 Stats:
PPG: 18.2
RPG: 8.7
APG: 1.1

Selected by:
Cleveland Cavaliers

Carlos Boozer
Notes: Third-team All-American, First-team All-ACC
The Skinny:
He could have been a lottery pick next season, had he stayed at Duke, but then all of the other components went 2-3 in the draft, so he’d be triple-teamed and without that fat contract from EA Sports. Not every Second Round pick gets to be a licensee to a video game BEFORE the draft. He could be good, or he could be the next Juwan Howard, going from college center to mediocre NBA power forward.

6-4, 190

2001-02 Stats:
Did Not Play

Selected by:
Houston Rockets

Tito Maddox
Notes: Ineligible for 2001-2002 Season
The Skinny:
Like Steve Francis isn’t enough of a problem in Houston. Actually, Maddox gets a bad rep, as he accepted gifts from an agent, thus ruining his eligibility. Playing one year out of three isn’t good though (was academically ineligible his first season). For better or for worse, he also didn’t skulk around in Venezuelan semi-pro leagues like Florida’s Teddy Dupay, who didn’t get drafted. Quality point guard with a good perimeter game and was WAC Freshman of the Year.

2001-02 Stats:
PPG: 14.1
RPG: 6.1
APG: 1.8

Selected by:
Washington Wizards

Rod Grizzard
Notes: Third-team All-SEC
The Skinny:
Good D. Shoots a lot. Scores some too. Has been known to hit the three. Will probably be a tall 2-guard in the NBA, but needs consistency. Was hurt late this past season with a bum knee.

Jason Jennings
Notes: Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Year
The Skinny:
Quality. Solid center that does credit to a small program. Played well all season, even though the Hilltopper’s Marcus got the ink. Tremendous shot-blocker, but needs more polish.

PPG: 15.3
RPG: 8.24
APG: 0.8

Selected by:
Chicago Bulls

Lonny Baxter
Notes:Honorable Mention All-American, Second-team All-ACC
The Skinny:
A quality collegiate power forward that must grow a few inches and gain a little weight to make it at that position in the NBA. He has serious game, including a scoring touch and general quickness and athleticism, but probably can’t transition to the small forward skill set.

APG: 1.7

Selected by:

Sam Clancy
Notes: 2002 Pac-10 Player of the Year
The Skinny:
Too hot to handle, too cold to hold. What does this mean? He’s good, and would be Chris Webber (without the head-case issues) if he were a few inches taller. Build, rebounding, quickness, strength, he’s got it.

Matt Barnes

The Skinny:
He’s got moves, and he’s got game. Top-flight scorer, playmaker, and even rebounder. A legit threat from the perimeter. Needs some polish, and occasionally gets frustrated, which leads to foul trouble.

Jamal Sampson
Notes: All-Freshman Team, Pac-10
The Skinny:
Needs a lot of work, and after that he’ll need polish. Good, quick athlete with a presence in the paint. Screwed up by losing eligibility by hanging out with an agent. Oops..

Chris Owens
Notes: Pre-Season All-American, for what it’s worth
The Skinny:
Fabulous hard worker who blew out his knee (ACL) in December. He’ll be on the injured reserve, but when he gets healthy, he’ll be a contributor, especially on the glass.

Selected by:
Boston Celtics

Darius Songaila
Notes: Second-team All-ACC
The Skinny:
Boston got a handful with Songaila. Could go either way, really. Good rebounding and a decent scoring touch on the one hand, and slow and foul and turnover prone on the other. Expect the first hand to prevail (the good one, that is).

Marcus Taylor
Notes: First-team All-Big Ten

Rasual Butler
Notes: First-team All-Atlantic Ten

Forceful player that maximized his league’s competition, but may not fare well against the bigger boys. Great scoring touch that can handle the glass at both ends. A bit of a project, but mature and versatile.

Tamar Slay
Notes: Honorable Mention All-Mid-American Conference
The Skinny:
Rangy. Both in build and in shot preference. A deep threat from the perimeter (42 percent from 3-point land), but tends to get lazy sometimes and turn the ball over. Solid scorer that consistently finds the basket, and plus he’s got a great name.

Notes: Mountain West Tournament MVP
The Skinny:
Classic in-between guy who exhibits quickness and athleticism, plus a great scoring touch. Played in high school with Fresno State’s Melvin Ely, and transferred around Southern California before finding a home with Steve Fisher at SDSU. Labeled a project with huge upside.
