Christmas Tree The Psych Test?: Sometimes you hear a story that just too silly to believe, but three league sources have repeated this scenario so it has to be stated – why is Brandon Jennings taking a tumble? Brandon has absolutely killed it in workouts. Two team sources who he worked out for said the kid is an amazing talent. The problem is he's got some red flags, and the biggest appears to be that he "Christmas Tree'd" the psychological test. Most teams administer a test to determine if they are drafting a kid with significant problems, or kids that have competitive issues in order to determine if they can handle the rigors of professional life in the NBA. Most teams put a lot of weight behind the psych testing; some put a little, some don't consider it at all. It turns out Jennings may have answered all the questions the same, as one executive said "blowing off the test", and as you can imagine teams that value that information were not overly pleased. Two teams in the top 6 immediately removed Brandon from consideration upon hearing that news and word is unless Minnesota takes him at #6, he could take a wicked tumble on draft day.

DX: Point Guard Stats Analysis

4
Some Highlights: - "... Lawson got to the line on a per possession basis significantly more frequently than anyone ... at .47 FTA per possession. Ricky Rubio followed him in second at .40 ...Rubio’s injured Euroleague play (also) earned him a top-10 spot, which tells you how well he effortlessly draws contact in the paint." - Rubio had a True Shooting % of 57% - same as Flynn, better than Evans, Holiday and Jennings. - "Rubio posts the two highest marks in (assists per 40 minutes) with his impressive ability to set the table for his teammates. His 10.4 assists per-40 dwarfs Ty Lawson’s 7.7 and is simply outstanding for any player, let alone an 18 year old in the second best League in the world. Even his Euroleague numbers are excellent, telling you a lot about how well he got everyone involved while playing essentially one-handed. Maybe he isn't "all hype" after all?" - "Rubio is the top thief (steals per 40 min.) in our group, which is impressive since he did so in the top League outside of the NBA with a bad wrist. While the sample size of the Euroleague is obviously very limited, he ranks out extremely well in the ACB league as well."

I was watching a new york knicks special on who they should draft, and the first 1:20 or so got me excited about Brandon Jennings all over again.

Geoff Petrie recently returned from Europe where he had a chance to watch point guards Ricky Rubio and Brandon Jennings as well as other international prospects. He is scheduled to head back across the pond to Spain (Barcelona and Madrid) next week to watch Rubio¹s DKV Joventut team play in the Spanish ACB League Playoffs. Upon Geoff’s return to Sacramento, we will begin our in-person workouts at the Practice Facility around May 21.

Maybe have a quick look, it says about the probably two best European prospects this year behind Rubio (though far from him), shortly about Jennings and gives some interesting information about David Andersen
