Some International Scouts Believe Kristaps Porzingis Is Best 2015 Prospect

Kristaps Porzingis is considered by Chad Ford as having the best shot of trumping Jahlil Okafor, Emmanuel Mudiay and Karl Towns to go No. 1 in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Porzingis is playing in Spain for Sevilla and is averaging 8.8 points and 4.4 rebounds in 21.8 minutes per game.

Porzingis is a 6'11 big out of Lavia that won't turn 20 until April.

"A number of international scouts I know swear he's the best prospect in the draft," writes Ford. "Let's see what he does in Spain this year. Those aren't huge numbers, but given the quality of the league and his age, it's not shabby either."
