DeAndre Daniels, SF, Connecticut

Daniels, 22, is a 6-foot-8, 196-pounder who decided to leave Connecticut after his junior season, complete with a national championship.

He averaged 13.1 points, six rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 29 minutes per game, shooting .469/.417/.787.

Daniels put together a terrific run during the NCAA tournament, including a 27-point, 10-rebound effort on 10-of-15 shooting in the regional semifinals against Iowa State and going for 20 and 10 in the Final Four against Florida, shooting 9-for-14.

He didn’t have a great national championship against Kentucky, scoring just eight points while going 4-for-14.

But he’s got the frame to be an effective NBA small forward, with a 7-foot wingspan, big hands and a frame that should fill out as he matures.

His perimeter shooting ability is what makes him an attractive candidate, as he improved greatly from the college 3-point line as a junior. He hit nearly 42 percent in his last year at Connecticut after shooting just 28 percent in his first two seasons.

He defended all three frontcourt positions at time last season and he showed a lot of defensive potential down the stretch, with nice timing as a shot blocker.

Adding strength will be the big key for Daniels, as at 196 pounds, he doesn’t take contact well on either end of the floor. Some more court awareness would help, too—Daniels had only 17 assists in 1,103 minutes last season.
