ZagsBlog recently talked to a couple of scouts about Joel Embiid and Wayne Selden. Here’s what they had to say:
Wiggins and Embiid have gotten most of the attention at Kansas thus far, and with good reason. DraftExpress.com projects them as the No. 1 and No. 4 picks in the draft, respectively.
Wiggins is expected to come out, and it may be hard for Embiid not to follow suit given his upside.
“Like to see Embiid stay but as a possible No. 1 pick, it would be difficult for him to stay one more year,” a veteran NBA scout told SNY.tv.
As for his own Draft projectons, DraftExpress has Selden at No. 23 in the 2014 Draft, but several scouts believe he would do well to stay on campus another year.
“[He’s a] late-first [round pick],” the aforementioned scout said. “He sould definitely stay in school.”
A second veteran concurred.
“Yes,” he told SNY.tv. “Great upside, will show great improvement after one year of college ball. Will be a dominating player next year. The difference between 24-28 and 8-12 in the Draft.”
