Default Is Al Thornton the best scorer in the draft after Kevin Durant?

Al Thornton, Florida State - This tweener forward is potentially the best scorer - outside of Kevin Durant - in the lottery. Like Green, hes a superior athlete who could be a handful at the 3 spot, with shooting range that extends to 20 feet. - Boston Herald

NBADRAFT.net compares him to Harrington. Does anyone care to share how accurate that comparison is?

I'm interested because some sites have the Kings selecting him

its only partially accurate. he's a big small forward, who can play the power if needed and can shoot the three, but he's bounds beyond Harringtion in athletic ability and strength finishing. He's a beast and should be a steal for ANY team.

Agree.

He'll be a small foward in the NBA. Can be used at Power Fowards just like plays such as Marion, Rashard, etc.
