If you just want some more stuff to read about the upcoming draft. This dalt99 dude over at StR crunches numbers for a living and made a huge effort to compute college/euro stats and see if the player will be successful in the L. The link is for Part 1, and you can find Part 2 here. Be sure to read the first part because that's where he explains his system. Anyway, in the interest of us Spurs fans, here are some of the rankings (out of 145 prospects, 1 being the highest) of some of the players that I've come across both in PtR and 48MoH: #8 - Hasheem Thabeet #9 - DeJuan Blair #15 - Terrence Williams #20 - Austin Daye #24 - Taj Gibson #29 - Nando de Colo #30 - Danny Green #31 - Rodrigue Beaubois #34 - Earl Clark #35 - Omri Casspi #39 - Wayne Ellington #40 - Sam Young #56 - Dionte Christmas #59 - Jeremy Pargo #87 - Victor Claver #96 - Jonas Jerebko
