Expert Analysis
"Stevenson has all of the drawbacks that most high school kids have coming into the draft. Although he is well built at 6-5, 200-plus pounds, he is not nearly strong enough to be a true impact player immediately, and would have had an adjustment period in college, let alone the pros.

Stevenson does not have the ball skills, passing skills or understanding of the game that Darius Miles possesses at this stage, but he attacks the basket and can rise up and dunk on bigger schoolboy defenders. " -- ESPN's Jay Bilas
