The 2010 NBA Draft Combine in Chicago came to a close this weekend and even though one NBA scout told us that the current format is a “waste of time” from the perspective of evaluating the prospects on-the-court, we thought we’d hit our readers with a little Combine wrap up.
We didn’t make the trip to Chicago this year, so we scoured the web hard and for your review we gathered information from trusted writers who were actually at the event. We concentrated our research and this post on three prospects — Evan Turner (with ball at top left), Derrick Favors and DeMarcus Cousins. Barring a blockbuster trade, most Draft “experts” are projecting that the 76ers will select one of those three players. According to the info on the Draft Combine that we found online, Turner helped his stock in Chicago and Favors held his ground. As for Cousins, well, the big man from Kentucky appears to be a mess.
