ESPN NBA Insider Chad Ford asked one NBA GM to give him his top 20 for Thursday's NBA draft, and he had Baylor's Ekpe Udoh (No. 10, Indiana Pacers) and Texas' Damion James (No. 17, Chicago Bulls) and Avery Bradley (No. 18, Miami Heat) all going in that span.
Ford on the debate between Udoh and Ed Davis (No. 9, Utah Jazz): Udoh seems to have the buzz. He's more polished, is a better offensive player and has the ability to contribute right away. Davis is a better defender, is more explosive athletically and is bigger. He impressed the Jazz and Pacers in recent workouts with his improved shooting ability, but everyone knows he's a project.
Ford on debate about Bradley vs. Eric Bledsoe: Both players are considered raw and unproven, but both have tremendous athletic ability and upside. ... The real question for both players will come down to one spot in the lottery -- the Raptors at 13.
