Jonathan Givony joins Peter Brown of the Sporting News to discuss a number of NBA draft related topics.

Topics discussed include:

-Is this the deepest draft we’ve seen for power forwards and centers?
-Why there are so many excellent big men available in the lottery and even throughout the second round?
-Why drafting a big man is going to be great value at any point in the draft, as opposed to year’s past where teams might have reached.
-Is there still a debate regarding who might be picked 1st?
-Why John Wall is a no-brainer for the Washington Wizards.
-Are there more John Wall detractors than Evan Turner detractors and why?
-Will Evan Turner be able to score in the NBA as much as he did in college?
-Can Evan Turner take the rigors of playing in the NBA?
-Should Wesley Johnson be mentioned amongst the top prospects in this draft?
-Is it difficult to make assumptions on young players and project them as pros?
-How does Xavier Henry project as a role player in the NBA? Is he a safe pick?
-How is Samardo Samuels’ draft stock looking and how does he project as an NBA player?
