We are 174 days away from the 2013 NBA Draft but I wanted to take a look ahead at the potential PG options (in case we fail to improve at that position via trade deadline). With another chance at getting Golden States pick and even our own, or acquiring a pick via trade, picking up one of these guys could become a reality. Let’s see who’s available.
Marcus Smart 6′4″ 225 Oklahoma State projected 9th pick
Trey Burke 6′0″ 190 Michigan projected 21st pick
Isaiah Canaan 6′1″ 200 Murray State projected 24th pick
Myck Kabongo 6′1″ 180 Texas projected 25th pick
I’m definately leaning toward Smart here simply for his size. He’s built more like a SG but is athletic, has good court vision, passes the ball well and is team oriented.
I don’t know much about Burke.
Canaan is a great shooter from behind the arc and is very sturdy for his size.
Kabongo appears to be a little Rondo/Tinsley mix which sounds strange mostly because of his passing style.
Let’s keep an eye on these guys. Maybe we see them showcase their skills in the sweet 16
