NBA Pre-Draft Camp Wrap

Throughout the course of the NBA Pre-Draft Camp, Aran Smith of did a fantastic job of bringing the news. Here are a few tidbits from the four day camp.

Made A Lasting Impact
PG: Aaron Brooks (Oregon), Ramon Sessions (Nevada), Jared Jordan (Marist). Brooks was the top point guard at the camp and may have hopped Gabe Pruitt as the 4th-ranked point guard. Marist's Jared Jordan played within his abilities and demonstrated why he was one of the best passers in college basketball.
SG: Daequan Cook (Ohio State), Coby Karl (Boise State). Cook all but solidified his 1st-round draft status. Coby Karl was able to handle smaller, quicker guards throughout the camp and made his way to the free throw line regularly.
SF: Caleb Green (Oral Roberts). ORU's Green might make his way into 2nd-round consideration with his consistent camp performance.
PF: Ali Traore (Le Havre - France), Ryvon Covile (Detroit). Traore was very impressive at the camp and will solidify position in the 2nd round. Covile was an out-and-out beast, as he had one of the few highlights of the camp.

PG: Dominic James (Marquette), Taurean Green (Florida). James had a four-day nightmare and would be wise to return to Marquette.
As for Green, he fared poorly though he had his best game at the end of the camp.
PF: Herbert Hill (Providence): He failed to impress and all the talk of Hill being projected as an early second rounder has died down.

Scheduled Workouts and Other Tidbits
Spencer Hawes (Washington): Minnesota, Chicago, Sacramento.
Acie Law IV (Texas A&M): Milwaukee, Chicago, Atlanta, LA Clippers. The Clippers will also bring in Javaris Crittenton, increasing the likelihood that they will draft a point guard.
Al Thornton (Florida State): Portland, Boston, Minnesota, Charlotte. He will work out against lottery hopefuls Corey Brewer, Julian Wright, and Thaddeus Young.
Jeff Green (Georgetown): A few are currently being scheduled. As Green has no agent, his college head coach John Thompson III is taking care of scheduling workouts.
Corey Brewer (Florida): Boston.
