(Quotes via San Jose Mercury News)
Dwight Powell is an athletic, big and explosive forward, who was one of the stars on the Stanford Sweet 16 team this past season. Powell will need to work on a few things in order to be successful in the NBA, but has a lot of potential. I project the former Stanford baller to be drafted early in the second round of the NBA Draft.
