NBA Draft Combine: Aaron Gordon, Noah Vonleh boosting draft stock


The NBA Draft Combine had showed us a lot about the incoming class of players and the deepest draft in years seems to be producing some new stars to watch.

According to Sean Deveney of The Sporting News, the two biggest winners so far at the Draft Combine have been Indiana big man Noah Vonleh and Arizona forward Aaron Gordon.

Both players are projected as lottery picks this summer and both seemed to have helped their draft stock rather significantly. Vonleh seemed to be a wild card since we didn’t see any of him in the NCAA Tournament but that hasn’t stopped teams from getting excited over how much of a Chris Bosh player he can be.

As for Gordon, we all saw him in the tournament and he seemed to help his stock with each game. He wasn’t exploding like the Kentucky players were, but Gordon played solid ball all throughout the tournament and ended up further helping himself at the combine.

It’s unclear just where these two will go but they were already lottery projections and they may not have solidified themselves in the that middle section of the top picks.
