Zach LaVine has made an instant impact at UCLA in his freshman season, averaging 13.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game in 26.1 minutes.
LaVine's highlight reel dunks have helped him get attention nationally.
LaVine's athleticism and scoring ability, along with the possibility of him being able to play point guard in the NBA has him rising up draft boards.
"I think he has the potential to be a lottery pick," says Chad Ford, who thinks LaVine will go in the top 10. "Just talking to NBA scouts and GMs, he has all the tools that you would look for in a young player. When you talk about an intriguing combination of size for position, athleticism and then a skill set that he possesses, it's pretty unique."
LaVine is drawing comparisons to Russell Westbrook as both attended UCLA and played shooting guard collegiately.
LaVine will consider leaving UCLA after the season.
"That's my ultimate goal, is to get to the NBA," said LaVine. "With the one-and-done, I don't know about that yet. I feel like anyone would consider it. It's going to be a decision me and my family make at the end of the year."
