Harrison Barnes

North Carolina sophomore (6-8, 228)

No one is predicting the next coming of Kevin Durant, but Barnes is seen by most as a high-level scorer whose skills should translate at the next level. He averaged 17.1 points last season, but left Tar Heels fans wanting more at the end as he shot just 32.8 percent in four NCAA tournament games. Still, executives are confident that the likely top 10 pick will be a productive pro even though he's not a great athlete and his dribble-drive game needs work.
