Bottom Line:

Dwight Powell is not the only big man out of Stanford, who is an NBA Draft prospect. Josh Huestis is an explosive, top defending and rebounding forward, who is hoping to be drafted into the Association on Thursday. Huestis is a talented player and will only need to improve on a few things in order to be a great player in the NBA. I project the skilled prospect to be selected late in the second round of the NBA Draft.
