Syracuse sophomore (6-4, 221)
Waiters was the James Harden of college basketball last season, a top-notch sixth man who averaged 12.6 points for a 34-3 Orange team. Despite Waiters' inconsistent shooting touch, some scouts view the athletic, dynamic scorer as a great fit for the NBA. He's expected to go from the mid-to-late first round but has ''lottery-type talent,'' one executive said. There are some questions about his style (lots of isolation play), and Waiters admitted that he "put myself before the team" during his freshman season. But some NBA personnel men point to his willingness to come off the bench as a positive sign that he's willing to do what's best for the team.
