There is very little question at this point that the pullout of 17 of the top prospects hurt the depth of this camp, even if there were still a decent amount of solid performers today, from at least a handful of players that will play in the NBA sooner or later.

    Mike Green, Reggie Williams, Quan Prowell, Patrick Ewing Jr, Othello Hunter, Kyle Hines and others were the highlights of day two.

He seems to be gaining confidence in the Balkan competition at the same rate that his shots are starting to fall in. Anyway, he gets our Player of the Week nomination. We also take a deeper look at Nando De Colo, one of the greatest stock risers this season in Europe, and also make a stop at the Vilagarcia Basket Cup, where Khimki has brought a rather unknown seven footer who answers by the name of Timofey Mozgov. Finally, we finish off with the International Rosters of this year's Nike Hoop Summit.

The other great protagonist of the week is Milos Teodosic, who buried 20 points on CSKA, leading Olympiacos to a victory in the Euroleague.

    We have no choice but to award Nikola Pekovic our Player of the Week honors once again. He’s just destroying opposing defenses with his ability to finish around the basket, and this week both Chorale Roanne and Crvena Zvezda got a taste of his devastating game. We also take a look at Mickael Mokongo. The small French point guard is delivering a very nice season in the Turkish League.

    FMP swept Hemofarm in the Adriatic League semifinals with Milos Teodosic brilliantly assuming the team?s playmaking leading role after Aleksandar Rasic?s departure to Efes Pilsen, which looks to us deserving enough for a Player of the Week nomination. We also turn our heads to big man Nikola Pekovic, who emerged as one of the steadiest performers for Partizan in the other semifinal, where the Serbian team needed three games to get rid of Cibona. As a closing act, we?ll take a last look at the Chinese CBA Finals.

  • An American Perspective on Europe: The Big Men (Part One)

    Jun 25, 2006, 02:44 am
    In part one of our four part article about the top International prospects in this year?s draft, we?ll look at three power forwards who are projected in various spots in our mock draft. Andrea Bargnani is a name that has become well known to NBA draft fans everywhere over the past two years, and he carries the torch as far as European prospects in this draft are concerned. Joel Freeland was unknown to most NBA scouts up until two weeks ago, but he too might end up cracking the first round if the buzz from his latest batch of workouts is any indication. Vladimir Veremeenko is probably the one that NBA GMs heard first of any player on this list, but as is all too often the case, waiting too long to enter the draft has hurt him in the eyes of scouts when considering the lack of significant improvement he?s shown since he first emerged.

    The second day of the Reebok Eurocamp in Treviso arrived with little changes in the general landscape. Following a similar scheme of drills in the morning and games in the evening, the novelty comes in the form of a daily real game against a U-20 National Team. Unfortunately, the first feature was Finland, a very weak opponent for the young squad put together for the occasion. Croatia and Italy are expected to bring a lot more interest in the remaining days.

  • James Augustine NBA Draft Scouting Report

    Apr 13, 2006, 01:53 pm
    In terms of physical attributes, Augustine has an ideal package of what scouts usually look for in an NBA power forward. He is a lefty with good size at 6-10, an excellent frame, a nice wingspan, and more than enough athleticism to get the job done. Augustine is extremely agile, running the floor well--especially in transition--having good quickness and footspeed and being able to get off the floor swiftly to rebound, block shots and especially dunk.

    Offensively, he has a few decent moves he can go to in the paint, but gets most of his baskets simply by being in the right place at the right time, often in transition. Moving off the ball is where Augustine truly excels, and it would not be a surprise at all to see him end up becoming an excellent player to run the pick and roll with. He’s a fairly intelligent player with good hands and quick feet, so once he sets the (very solid) pick and rolls to the basket he will usually finish emphatically around the hoop if he’s not being too fiercely contested.

    Augustine’s go-to move is the left-handed jump-hook. It’s a move he’s practiced to the point of perfection, spinning quickly to his right shoulder, elevating slightly off the floor and releasing it fluidly with a nice touch. Augustine doesn’t take too many shots, but the ones he takes he converts at a very high rate, 62.4% on the season and 61.7% in his career, which puts him in 1st place on the all-time list at Illinois.

    A place where he shows plenty of potential is in his face-up game. The same nice touch he shows inside the paint extends to a certain extent outside the paint as well. Augustine was never a prolific mid-range shooter in college, but he did show sparks of potential here to knock down open shots with range out to about 18 feet when given the chance, particularly in the last few months of his career at Illinois. He also has an excellent 1st step for a big man with flashes of some ball-handling skills. It’s not out of the question that he could mold all these skills into a legit high post game, which would make him, along with his raw post moves, versatile enough offensively to see legit playing time in the NBA. The fact that he is a decent passer only adds to this initial impression.

    Augustine finished his career as the best rebounder in Illinois history, pulling down over a thousand in his career. He relies mostly on his wingspan, hands, quickness and leaping ability in this area, not being incredibly prolific but definitely getting the job done effectively.

    Augustine is also the winningest player in Illinois history (tied with Dee Brown), which should tell you something about the experience he brings to the table and how intriguing it is that he still has legit upside to continue to improve. He’s been to the NCAA tournament multiple times, and helped his team reach the National Championship game with a very solid showing in the 2005 NCAA tournament up until that game.

    In terms of intangibles, Augustine’s appear to be fairly strong. He has a cool and calm demeanor on the floor, and has a similar reputation off the court as well, never being one to cause problems for his coaches or teammates. He was named to the Big 10 all-academic team his sophomore year.

    Mar 19, 2006, 03:35 am

    Joakim Noah has himself another Andrei Kirilenko-type statline in a dominating all-around performance to propel Florida into the Sweet 16. Brandon Roy does the same for UW, but in much more discreet fashion. James Augustine appeared to be on his way to a career night but was stopped short in so small part due to his teammates. The Dukies click on all cylinders and all find themselves amongst many others in the Stock Up department.

  • The European Junior (U-18) Championships: The Point Guards

    Aug 15, 2005, 05:02 am
    A couple of weeks after the European Junior (U-18) Championships is over, watching the international stars of tomorrow, DraftExpress takes a look back to analyze the best prospects seen there in more depth. We start with the point guards, and in the following days we?ll continue with the shooting guards, forwards and centers.

    Last year, in Zaragoza, we saw the Junior Championship tyrannized by Sergio Rodríguez, a player who displayed most of the best playmaking virtues seen there. On the contrary, and for our pleasure, this year we saw a very nice bunch of true distributors whose game went beyond the typical drive and dish movement, a skill from which many current points can?t escape.
  • The Adriatic League's Final Eight

    May 03, 2005, 03:29 pm
    This weekend the Final 8 round of the Adriatic league took place in Belgrade, where the experienced but draft prospect-less team Hemofarm won its first trophy ever in their history. They beat Partizan in their own hall in front of many NBA scouts. This was probably the most interesting tournament outside the U.S. this year in terms of NBA prospects, and it would be very surprising if every NBA team wasn't represented in one way or another. All the NBA prospects in attendance got at least some playing time, and DraftExpress is here to tell you how they looked.
