The 2013 NBA Draft is quickly approaching and the Sacramento Kings are using every last minute to decide who they take seventh overall.  UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammad came through  for a second visit on Saturday and now  C.J. McCollum, the sharpshooting guard out of Lehigh, is back for a second look tomorrow .

Big man Steven Adams joins the fray in Sacramento on Monday as well.  The former Pittsburgh star is considered one of the draft’s hardest workers.  Standing at 7-feet with nearly a 7-foot-6 wingspan, you have to at least be intrigued.

Steven Adams

  • Age: 19
  • Position: Center
  • College: Pittsburgh
  • Height: 7-0
  • Weight: 255 lbs.
  • Chad Ford’s Top 100 Ranking: 11
  • Quick Breakdown:  A high-risk, high-reward pick with tremendous speed and agility for a big man.

Grant Jerrett

  • Age: 19
  • Position: Forward
  • College: Arizona
  • Height: 6-10
  • Weight: 230 lbs.
  • Chad Ford’s Top 100 Ranking: 39
  • Quick Breakdown:  Has size to be an NBA power forward, but raw. Could have used another season or two at the college level to build his skills.

Myck Kabongo

  • Age: 21
  • Position: Guard
  • College: Texas
  • Height: 6-3
  • Weight: 180 lbs.
  • Chad Ford’s Top 100 Ranking: 49
  • Quick Breakdown: Long and lean, but lacks elite athleticism.  Would have helped himself by staying in school a little longer, however has high basketball IQ and is a natural point guard.

C.J. McCollum

  • Age: 21
  • Position: Guard
  • College: Lehigh
  • Height: 6-3
  • Weight: 197 lbs.
  • Chad Ford’s Top 100 Ranking: 8
  • Quick Breakdown:  Possesses a quick first step, good shooter and is at his best in transition.  Strong rebounder, but isn’t overly athletic.

James Southerland

  • Age: 23
  • Position: Forward
  • College: Syracuse
  • Height: 6-8
  • Weight: 221 lbs.
  • Chad Ford’s Top 100 Ranking: 53
  • Quick Breakdown: Has a 7-foot-1 wingspan and a history of 40-percent shooting from 3-point range.  That might spark interest from the Kings in the second round.

Christian Watford

  • Age: 22
  • Position: Forward
  • College: Indiana
  • Height: 6-9
  • Weight: 224 lbs.
  • Chad Ford’s Top 100 Ranking: 99
  • Quick Breakdown: Power forward with range that projects to a spot up shooter at the next level.  Must sell teams that he can be Ryan Anderson and not a poor man’s Brian Cook.
