Who are the best prospects in the D-League draft? Who can we expect to get taken in the first round? We took a stab at this by sifting through the player pool, using our ridiculously comprehensive back-end database, and putting our thoughts on paper as follow.
The 2014 D-League Draft will be held on November 1st (330 EST), and tonight the official list of eligible players was released to all 18 teams.
P.J. Hairston was forced to play out this season in the D-League with the Texas Legends after being dismissed by North Carolina in December. He put up monstrous scoring numbers, but still has many question marks around him. Now that he's officially in the Draft as an automatically eligible player, we can take a step back and conduct an inventory of everything he displayed this season as an NBA prospect, as well as the things he still has to improve on.
P.J. Hairston discusses the route he took in getting to the D-League, his impressions of the league, his time at North Carolina, and his mindset in preparing for the upcoming NBA Draft.
