Good pick by Phoenix taking Gani Lawal. Could be the next Lou Amundson for them. 21, rebounds well. Solid athlete. Nice one Griff.

Portland moves up to #34 in exchange for cash. My guess is they're going after either Gani Lawal or Trevor Booker at that spot.

1st workout was Gani Lawal, Tiny Gallon, Terrico White, Dominique Jones, Jordan Crawford and Armon Johnson. Probably about 15 teams there.

NBA agent Andy Miller of ASM Sports informs us he's signed James Anderson, Craig Brackins, Gani Lawal and Stanley Robinson as clients.

Yes. Always an issue. But also maybe seen enough? RT @SIPabloTorre: Not too intrigued by Gani Lawal (or not enough room in 140 characters?)

* For the NBA and International leagues, top 25s reflect the actual top 25 list. Due to the number of college players, we've limited top 25s in NCAA to only draft prospects which better reflects the level of competition and what we feel provides highlights of a more interesting subset. Top 25s of college stats prior to 2005 will be extremely inaccurate due to the minimal number of college profiles from 2004 and before in our database
