Btw, almost all of these guys went undrafted for a reason and I'd be surprised if more than two become NBA rotation players. With a few obvious exceptions (Arenas, Ellis), guys who fall out of the first round and especially undrafted ones only ever have careers as defensive specialists and post defenders, I would scratch all of the perimeter guys off of my wishlist for my team if I were all of you.
I would say the first seven I mentioned (Parakhouski, Robertson, Torrance, Landesburg, Reynolds, Harris, Coleman) all have a legit shot of eventually making an NBA roster, plus I think Samardo Samuels will get some looks.

And yes, I realize that undrafted players rarely make it. I also realize that NBA scouts know a lot more than me and therefore these guys went undrafted for a reason.
