NBA Draft.net has us picking this kid. Anyone know much about him? Sounds good and is compared to Caron Butler.

Draft Express has him going 16th to Chicago. http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/T.J.-Warren-6436/

Quote:
Strengths: Warren is a big time scorer and a guy with fantastic instincts for the game ... He works very hard on both ends of the floor and has a knack for finding openings in the defense to put the ball in the hoop, in other words, he’s very opportunistic ... This ties in with his offensive rebounding as well, he always seems to be in the right position ... He’s excellent in transition and runs the floor extremely well ... Works well both on and off the ball ... He can spot up and knock down jumpers from deep, he can set up his man and beat them via backdoor cuts or he can create for himself ... He has range from all over the floor, although he’s best from midrange, and is surprisingly comfortable handling the ball ... Lost some weight and looks more athletic this year ... Will overpower lesser athletes around the basket playing bully ball ... He is becoming more of a wing from a skill standpoint ... Defensively he puts forth a great effort, and rebounds very well.
Quote:
Weaknesses: The obvious weakness is that he doesn’t have a defined position ... He lacks athleticism at the wing, and he’s small for a post player with short arms ... Regardless of where he plays he’s going to be at an athletic disadvantage due to poor lateral quickness and being a less athletic player ... After shooting excellent from deep as a freshman, he has struggled from 3 this season, though his numbers have picked up as the season has progressed ...

Overall: Warren has responded very well to his expanded role for the Wolfpack this year ... He worked very hard to get better and you can tell with his improved offensive game and athleticism. If the trend continues he could be a valuable player down the line ... Where he stands now he should probably go in the mid to late 1st where he would be a valuable scorer off the bench with starting potential down the road ...
Quote:
Notes: Measured 6'8.5 (in shoes) 231 lbs, with a 6'9.5 wingspan at the 2013 Kevin Durant Skills Academy... Was 3rd in the Nation in scoring as a sophomore (24 ppg) shooting over 50% from the field ...
