Michigan's Manny Harris- a Surprise 1st Rounder?
Despite his size, athleticism, ability to fill the stat sheet on both ends of the court, Manny Harris' slim frame has really hurt his stock. His skills as an all-around player- a slasher, who can finish at the rim, rebound well for his position, distribute the ball and play the passing lanes should have his stock much higher, but at 6'5", he weighs just 185 pounds and figures to struggle, at least physically at the next level. Aside from his body maturation, he seems to be headed to the D-League to improve his decision-making and consistency shooting the ball from behind the arc. Yet, one scout we talked to has Manny Harris ranked in his team's top fourteen, making him a lottery pick for them. Some front offices love his raw talent, while others are scared off by his shot selection and turnover problems.
