Today’s featured draft profile will be on the University of Cal’s 3-point specialist, Allen Crabbe. Arguably the best pure shooter in this year’s class, the 2013 PAC-12 Player of The Year is best known for his seemingly unlimited range and easy-going attitude on the court. At 6’6 with good length, he has the frame of a prototypical shooting guard, and possesses a solid skill-set that could fill a need on just about any team in the NBA. Labeled as a late first round pick when he initially declared, it appears that an impressive performance at the pre-draft combine has upped Crabbe’s value, as some mocks have him going in the teens. The Knicks will be bringing in another group of possible picks for workouts on Monday, and Crabbe will be one of the prospects in attendance.

Today’s featured draft profile will be on University of North Carolina swingman, Reggie Bullock. I love hard-working, 100% effort guys, and if you were to study Bullock’s game as I’ve been doing over the past few days, you’d see just that. Bullock leaves it on the court every night and finds ways besides scoring to contribute to the win. A scrappy defender and dependable 3-point shooter, I’d go as far to say that Bullock reminds me of another former Tarheel: Danny Green.

Today’s featured draft profile will be on the University of New Mexico’s mellow sharpshooter, Tony Snell. Nicknamed the “Silent Assassin” by the Lobos faithful, Snell prefers to let his game do the talking, enforcing that reputation with his impressive showing last season against George Mason where he ignited for 27 points on only 12 shots; including the game winning 3-pointer with 01.2 left in the game. What did Snell do after? Get right back on defense.

Today’s featured profile will be on Michigan shooting guard, Tim Hardaway Jr. Yes, THAT Hardaway. The son of the UTEP alum, who gave the Knicks fits in the 90′s, as a member of the Miami Heat, with his scoring ability and signature crossover, has declared for the draft after a strong Junior year. One of my top 5 players at the shooting guard position in this year’s draft, Hardaway has matured from a wiry spot-up shooter at Miami Palmetto Senior High School into one of the most polished and NBA-ready prospects available.
