ANALYSIS: Bargnani comes into the 2006 draft as the consensus top international prospect. At only 20 years of age, his game compares to that of the Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki. Bargnani has great size, measuring almost seven-feet, but he prefers to operate on the perimeter. His versatility will make him an intriguing pick in the lottery come draft night. After logging only nine minutes per game for Benetton during the 2004-05 season, Bargnani took on a more prominent role this year. After averaging 10.6 points per game in just over 19 minutes per contest in the regular season, he saw his playing time increase during the playoffs. Bargnani managed 11.5 points and six rebounds per game during the six-game round-robin tournament, logging over 25 minutes per game in the process. Bargnani has good range on his shot for his height, draining 43.3 percent of his three-point attempts. While his range will intrigue some teams, he has yet to refine his post game. He prefers to face up outside and try and take his man off the dribble. Bargnani is hardly a banger down low offensively, and he is easily moved out of defensive rebounding position. He will need to add some strength over the next year or two in order to withstand the rigors of an NBA season. NBA teams looking to draft Bargnani will have to find a position for him in the league, as he is stuck between the small and power forward positions. Despite some of his shortcomings, he comes to the draft with a ton of professional experience. Many consider Bargnani to be a talent projected in the top five to ten picks. However, there are risks involved. After Spain's Fran Vazquez elected to stay in Europe last season despite being selected 11th overall by the Magic, many teams may be hesitant to select an international player with a top-10 selection.
