Kemba Walker is one of my favorite college players right now, he's also from New York so he probably would love to be drafted by us. The problem is his decision making and his size. He is a decent passer but he doesn't exactly make the decisions you would like to see out of an NBA PG. He has the same type of body and speed as Ty Lawson and I would definitely pick him if he turns out like Ty. Fortunately we have Billups as the veteran as you mentioned.

He plays D the same way as Toney Douglas. He plays in-your-face D and provides instant pressure. It would make either one of them expendable. I do think Kemba is more of a pure PG than Toney but has the same scoring ability. We already know that Toney shouldn't be a 2, he's too small. Especially since Kemba Walker is also just 6'0/6'1 ish.

I haven't watched much of Uconn this year, so I'll definitely take a good look at them in the Tournament.

Kemba Walker
23.0 PPG
