Rankings according to the 2009 ESPN 100
no.1- Avery Bradley (Texas)
Bradley hasn’t been too bad in the NBA, but certainly hasn’t lived up to the hype of a number one overall prospect.
no.2- Derrick Favors (Georgia Tech)
Similar to Bradley, Favors hasn’t been great but he’s getting there. He’s found a nice home and role with the Jazz.
no.3- Xavier Henry (Texas)
Henry is currently in the D-League but had a few decent years in the NBA.
no.4- DeMarcus Cousins (Kentucky)
Cousins is currently the best center in the NBA. Off the court hasn’t been good for cousins but the grade doesn’t include that.
no.5- John Wall (Kentucky)
Wall is an all star point guard when he’s healthy. If he figured out the 3 point shot he could enter the conversation for best in the NBA.
no.6- John Henson (North Carolina)
It took Henson a couple years but since then he has become pretty valuable for Milwaukee.
no.7- Renardo Sidney (Mississippi St)
Sidney never reached the NBA.
no.8- Jordan Hamilton (Texas)
Hamilton has bounced around in the NBA and has yet to reach what his potential once was.
no.9- Kenny Boynton Jr (Florida)
Boynton never reached the NBA.
no.10- Mason Plumlee (Duke)
Plumlee had a promising year with Brooklyn in 2014 but was then traded. He didn’t impact very much last year but the potential is there for a nice bench role.
