Looking at the players you listed, I think Love in the most intriguing.

You know Beasley brings a rare skill set offensively, but he doesn't do anything we haven't seen before.

You know Rose is very athletic, but can lead a team and make difficult shots.

You know Bayless, Mayo, and Gordon can all score, but it is a matter if they can improve on defense, and, especially Bayless, if they can become more complete players when they have the ball in their hands.

Love, on the other hand, can pass, hit outside shots, and works very hard inside. You don't see that a lot. He isn't soft like his passing and jump shot would indicate, but he is aggressive inside without just camping out in the paint.

Kyle Weaver - decent college career - despite playing in a system which was better for the team than for his personal hi-lite reel he still showed glimpses of what he's capable of - very "long" and a tough defender - he handled the ball a lot for the Cougs - I don't think a lot of people realize just how much he handled the ball - would love to see my Blazers pick him up with one of their early second round picks and team him with Brandon Roy.
