# 1  Hasheem Thabeet, UConn
Height: 7-2. Weight: 265. Year: Jr.
Projected Selection: 2-5.

Alters an entire game by his mere presence in the paint… Outstanding shot blocker who can swat a shot with either hand… Changes as many shots as he stuffs due to his incredible length and athleticism… A solid rebounder because of his height, but relies too much on his length which often puts him out of position and gets him into foul trouble… Still raw on the offensive end… Has a decent stroke from 10-15 feet out but it still needs a lot of work… Little threat when catching the ball on the block, but has shown steady improvement in that area.

# 2 B.J. Mullens, Ohio State
Height: 7-1. Weight: 258. Year: Fr..
Projected Selection: 14-21.

An intriguing prospect loaded with potential… A very good athlete for a seven-footer… Soild footwork in the post, but needs to do a better job of establishing him as a force down low… Average ability when facing the basket… Nice strength for some as young as he is and that should only improve over time… Probably a couple of years away from being a steady contributor in the NBA…
