Portsmouth Prospects

Any team in a situation like the Wolves needs to uncover every stone to look for roster additions, particularly since a couple of guys in last year's camp like Mustafa Shakur and Alonzo Gee ended up on other teams' rosters at some point during the year. One place where draft sleepers emerge is the recently-completed Portsmouth Invitational where 2nd-round and summer-league candidates often emerge. Here are some guys DraftExpress mentioned and some comments on how their reported skills might fit in with this team:

  • Jerome Randle, Cal (5-10, PG): supposedly a good instinctual player who is an excellent ballhandler and passer
  • Mikhail Torrance, Alabama (6-5, G): plays both guard positions, good physical attributes, always going to the rim on offense, willing and good passer
  • Tyren Johnson, Louisiana-Lafayette (6-8, F): plays both forward positions, can create his own shot decently, shoots with range, better in transition, good passer, can guard both forward spots and is productive in blocks, rebounds, and steals
  • Hamady N'Diaye, Rutgers (7-0, C): raw, mobile, strong, athletic, good shot blocker and team defender, not as good in rebounding

I haven't watched any of these guys besides Randle a little bit because his team was good; anyone else have an opinion on them? These are obviously non-rotation guys, but there's always a Wesley Matthews-type player who fits well in a system, and these four seemed to have the most potential in that regard.
