“Jeremy Lin is a good enough player to start in the NBA and possibly star,” Lin wrote in May 2010.
Weiland told the Wall Street Journal there were two current college players his numbers say give them high upsides on the NBA level. One of them is Marquette forward Jae Crowder. The other is 6-8 forward Tony Mitchell of North Texas
The relevant section from Hoops Analyst:
Tony Mitchell, PF North Texas: A top 20 prep prospect in 2010, Mitchell was recruited to Missouri a year ago. That didn’t work out, so he headed for North Texas to start his freshman season a year late. So far he’s been dominant. Is it crazy to rush him into the #2 spot? I don’t think so. The negative is this is for only 13 games in the Sun Belt Conference. The Sun Belt isn’t exactly the ACC, but it’s a decent mid-major. In a draft that’s painfully thin at the top, Mitchell is a better pick than anyone other than Davis at this point. Of course if the final month exposes some weaknesses, we’ll reassess.
