Re: Budinger (Arizona) v. Cummard (BYU)
I like Cummard, but he is at best a 2nd round pick while Budinger is a 1st rounder. The biggest thing for Cummard is his size. While Budinger won't get confused for DeJuan Blair, next to Cummard he looks like Blair. The other big factor is that Budinger is athletic while Cummard is an average athlete. Beyond that, they are really similar. I like Cummard because he plays hard, does a lot of things well, and can shoot the ball from anywhere on the court, but in the NBA will he be able to go inside, create his own shots, or be more than a speed bump for some of the guys he will go up against?
I do think he can find a spot in the NBA, likely deep on the bench, and I think a number of teams could be looking for a guy like this.
