  • John Hollinger's NBA Draft rater came out yesterday, and it always makes for fun discussions. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist fared well in this rating, while Bradley Beal and Harrison Barnes did not. It's important to note that while this tends to predict wings well, its weak spot is one-and-done prospects. Indeed, folks like Eric Gordon and Avery Bradley were one and dones in Beal's range in the past. Meanwhile, Barnes' numbers are more concerning, but they aren't too far off from, say, Russell Westbrook.
  • Chad Ford reports that the Wizards are sending "fuzzy" signals about who they'll pick. The Bobcats, meanwhile, seem to be deciding between Thomas Robinson and Harrison Barnes. [ESPN]
  • Jared Sullinger was red-flagged by NBA doctors because of lingering back issues. DeJuan Blair and Darrell Arthur were red-flagged in years past, and both tumbled down the draft board. I'd expect a similar fall for Sullinger. [ESPN]
