Players with sliding draft stockshttp://insider.espn.go.com/nba/blog/_/name/nba_draft/id/8693594/james-michael-mcadoo-prospects-stocks-falling-early-season-2013-nba-draft
The college basketball season has been going strong for several weeks, and we've been documenting players who have gotten off to strong starts.
Unfortunately, the start of the season hasn't been great for everyone. A number of players have begun the season with a whimper instead of bang. While there is still plenty of time for them to get their acts together, it's hard to be impressed with their early body of work.
Here's a look at some players who have been dropping on our Big Board the past few weeks.
James Michael McAdoo, F, So., North Carolina Tar Heels
We detailed the concerns scouts had about McAdoo last week in our Maui Invitational blog. While McAdoo clearly looks the part and has a terrific pedigree, the result on the court this year has been disappointing. McAdoo, despite the much larger role in the North Carolina offense, doesn't seem to have improved at all over the summer.
He doesn't have a go-to scoring move anywhere on the court, has been a turnover machine and has lacked the intensity that scouts have been yearning to see. McAdoo is young and still transitioning into his new role, but if this keeps up all season, he probably slips to a late-lottery-to-mid-first-round type of pick.
