Just missed the cut: Miles Bridges, Robert Williams, Lonnie Walker IV
Miles Bridges of Michigan State, Robert Williams of Texas A&M and Lonnie Walker IV of the University of Miami barely miss the cut in the first edition of this Big Board.
Bridges played two years at Michigan State and failed to disappoint. He averaged 17 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. At 6-foot-6, he’s a bit of a tweener and could play the 3 or the 4. He’d be a great energy guy who can use his athleticism to help him get by until the rest of his game catches up.
Williams also played two seasons of college ball and averaged 11.1 points, 8.7 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game. He compares favorably to Clint Capela and would be a great addition to the Bucks’ roster in desperate need of an athletic and strong-bodied center.
Walker is the lone freshman in this trio and averaged 11.5 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. At 6-foot-4, he’s a shorter shooting guard who makes up for it with his incredible 6-foot-10 wingspan. He didn’t play as well as he could have at Miami, but is one of the best shooting guards available in a class that’s weak at the position.
