Your boy Chad Ford is out in California watching NBA prospects work out for all 30 teams this weekend and he has a report today from the scene that includes some scoop on James Young.
The ESPN NBA draft insider called Young’s size impressive for his position with potential to keep growing because he is still a teenager. He also said scouts loved Young’s shooting ability last summer and early in the season but that he had some questionable shot selection throughout the year. “When he gets good looks, he rarely misses,” Ford added.
And then there is this quote that sums up Young’s overall potential: “Young may be one of the real sleepers in the draft. I’ve always been a big fan and everything I saw here confirmed that he has the potential to be a very good NBA player and should be mentioned in the same breath with all the other elite shooting wings.”
