At SB Nation, a look at the Top 10 SF's in the 2012 draft and what Evan Turner's failures fan tell us about this year's crop:
While he is an excellent rebounder and passer for a wing player, he's an average athlete with a subpar perimeter shot. Without the ability to space the floor, he's only effective with the ball in his hands, but he's not a dynamic enough athlete to be a primary offensive option or a defensive difference-maker in the NBA.
If we put the top small forwards in the 2012 draft under a similar microscope, UNC's Harrison Barnes comes up short. Many mock drafts have the Cleveland Cavaliers taking Barnes with the No. 4 overall pick, but he's only the fourth best small forward in this draft in my mind.
1. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 2. Quincy Miller 3. Jeffrey Taylor 4. Harrison Barnes 5. Moe Harkless 6. Khris Middleton 7. Orlando Johnson 8. Darius Miller 9. Hollis Thompson 10. Tony Mitchell
