Countless words are dedicated to draft prospects this time of year, as NBA observers try to get a feel for the dozens of new players who’ll soon become a part of the league. There’s no shortage of analysis of their strengths, weaknesses and how they would fit with each team, but sometimes, the best way to understand what a player can do is to talk to him.
That’s what our Zach Links is doing in the weeks leading up to the draft on June 25th. Prospects in play for a lottery pick and those just hoping to be drafted have shared their thoughts with Zach, and we’ve passed that along to you. We’ll be hearing from more prospects between now and draft night, and we’ll keep track of all of them in this post. Here are the soon-to-be pros we’ve heard from so far.
