What theyre saying
While NBA scouts had doubts about his NBA readiness before the season began some still do they see him as someone with incredible NBA upside. Hes big, hes athletic, he can score both inside and outside, he rebounds and he has a reputation of being a hard worker and someone who is easy to coach. Players like that dont really grow on trees. ESPNs Chad Ford
Vonleh was the rare bright spot for an all-over-the-place Indiana team who basically averaged a double-double in 26 minutes per game, and his upside is too good for him to go (very low) especially considering the way he measured at the combine. CBS Gary Parrish
