    khem Birch at UNLV and Dwight Powell at Stanford are two other guys that will get a look in the NBA, Dwight is projected to go early second round and Birch is a middle second round projection....both for 2014.

    What year are they in? Does it make sense for them to stay an extra year and make it to the bottom first round?

    Don't forget about XRM. Not sure what's going on between him and Florida State, but I hope he 's able to hit the court soon.

    Powell is a senior and was the PAC 12 MIP last year, Birch is a redshirt Junior after tranfering from Pitt, UNLV seems to be down this year and his defense may get hiim a look. Birch could use another Year.

    Also look at Jordan Bachynski a senior from Arizona state averaging 14 ppg 10 rpg and 4 blocks, he is from Ablerta.

    I think is it what is going on with him and the NCAA, don't think we will see him play this year.

    I don't think Heslip has the size or quickness to be in the NBA. Good shooter though!

    Most of the real NBA prospect guys are already listed, but here's a few other guys that are contributing on good teams:

    Melvin Ejim and Naz Long at Iowa State - An ESPN article earlier this year talked about Ejim as a guy who could spend a couple years in Europe and then maybe make it to the NBA eventually.
    Dyshawn Pierre at Dayton - One of the leaders on what's turning out to be a surprisingly good team early this year.
    Laurent Rivard at Harvard - His numbers have dipped this year.
    Sim and Tanveer Bhullar, Renaldo Dixon, and Daniel Mullings are all at NMSU - Mullings is having a great season as a senior. I believe Tanveer is redshirting, and 7'5 Sim Bhullar is continuing to improve... he made a lot of improvement last year, but still has a ways to go to reach the next level.
    Malcolm Duvuvier is a freshman with Oregon State, who's probably got 3 or 4 years in college ahead of him, but could emerge as an NBA prospect at some point.
    Also, remember Kyle Wiltjer? He transferred to Gonzaga and is sitting out this this year, hoping to follow in Olynyk's footsteps. He was once a top 30 recruit, so maybe he can get back in the mix.
    Justin Edwards had a great season with Maine last year, and will sit out this year before playing with Kansas State next year.

    I also keep tabs on Oregon, Wichita State, and Missouri, each of which are top teams that have a couple Canadians as important bench players. By my count, 9 of the current AP top 25 teams have Canadians playing a major role.

    I don't understand this situation, I thought they just red-shirted him since they are deep at that position.

    There are even more Canadians doing well that might not get NBA consideration, but are worth following.

    Mullings - NMSU (Bhullar if you swing that way)
    D. Ennis - Villanova
    Post - Missouri
    Ejim - Iowa State, Long is on the team too.

    Can't think of any other Canadian who is featured on their team, but we are everywhere.

    Also, Birch is a bust I doubt he gets drafted.

    Tyler Ennis at Syracuse could be a lottery pick in 2015.

    Agree i think ennis should stay one more year and improve on his draft slot. Even though he had a great game today with 17 points 8 Ast 7 reb and 4 stl

    Jordan Bachynski, where would he be picked in this draft? Averaging a double-double and 4 blocks a game.

    Chad Ford He's intriguing. He's already 24 years old which scares the crap out of NBA people. (You're old if you are 21 or older in the NBA draft). But at his size and with his mobility, he's going to get a look in the second round.

    Other guys getting big minutes are Murphy Burnatowski at Colgate, putting up 15 and 4 with over 2 assists and 1.5 steals per game and Manny Arop at Indiana state, scoring 11 a game, but had found his 3 point shot again and hitting over 50% from down town on over 3 attempts per game.

    Another guy to watch for is former Kansas commit Kevin Thomas, he had to go the JuCo route after not being qualifier out of one of Ro Russel's schools in teh states. He is a Junior at Troy and is putting up 13 abd 8 with a block and a steal on 55% shooting from teh field

    X did was a non qualifier this year, some of his high school courses were questioned...some bad advice by mentors I think.

    Did he not take the same courses as Wiggins at Huntington? I wonder if there is a double-standard. Also, Pierre at Dayton is also playing an important role for that team. Kansas, NMSU, Texas and Gonzaga are the teams I am following this year.

    Wasn't XRM one of those prep players that was under the tutelage of Ro Russell in North Carolina that the NCAA took exception to the academics being provided?

    That is where the problem was, not at Huntington.
