Potential 2nd Round steal: Ricky Ledo

I was over at the RealGM NBA Draft forums and couldn't help be a bit intrigued by a very under the radar draft prospect named Ricky Ledo. A 6'6" SG from Providence College.

Story is he was ruled ineligible to play his freshman year because of poor academic grades. He supposedly is a bit of a head case. He's transfered schools a bunch in Highschool and shows poor body language, more so from when he's not getting his way (cited from when he was in highschool).

It's hard to read that and think he should be drafted by us but as a 2nd rounder there is definitely talent there. Watch his youtube clips and you can see a level of smoothness to his game. The ease and form of his shot has been compared to Durants. His game is very fluid and he's shown craftiness and keen dribbling skills He's very skilled offensively and has been mentioned as a very potent scorer. His athleticism won't blow you away but his overall offensive skills and craftiness may be able to cover up for it. His defensive potential is also supposedly high when engaged, although he hasn't shown a capacity to maintain it. Though you can see he holds his own against John Wall in the video.

He's intriguing from a talent standpoint and before people say, "we already have Will Barton, we don't need another rookie SG project" or the sort, I say, it's the 2nd round. Finding and acquiring talent should be the main concern, regardless of present assets. And on the bright side, if any of our shooting guards get good enough, they are already on the way to being a valuable asset primarily because quality shooting guards aren't vast in quantity in the current NBA.
