2012 NBA Draft: Draymond Green, Darius Miller In Atlanta On Monday


Draymond Green
Height: 6-foot-7
Weight: 236
Age: 22
Position: Power Forward

Green played a big part while at Michigan State where the team made the most of his high baskeball IQ and all around game. Green is solid but isn't overly athletic and possesses a below the basket game which raise question marks as to whether or not he can play the power forward position in the NBA at just 6-foot-8. Most projected Green as a late first round or early second selection but ESPN's Chad Ford could see him dropping into the second.

It's hard to imagine that a veteran team in the late 20s would pass on Green. He does all of the little things that help teams win and he's ready to step in and play right now. But with two weeks to go before the draft, he hasn't exactly found a landing place. Lots of teams like him (and their stat guys love him), but I'm not sure he has a definite first-round home just yet.

Darius Miller
Height: 6-foot-7
Weight: 233
Age: 22
Position: Small Forward

An important part of Kentucky's national championship team in 2012 Darius Miller has good size and athleticism to potentially catch on with an NBA team. He has a solid range on his jumper that should translate nicely to the pro game and figures to be a capable defender. Was a role player at Kentucky and can likely fill that role again with an NBA team.
