Default Mata-Real's NBA Prospects

Does Lorenzo Mata-Real have any chance of going in the NBA draft, possibly as a second round pick? The guy does all the little things like take charges and play tough D that you don't find in alot of bigs and he could make a great role player. He also got great hops. I'd love to see some of these bruins reunite with Farmar on the Lakes, we could get Shipp or M'ba A Moute in the first round and Mata-Real in the second!

I don't think he has a real shot at being drafted, but he could end up in the NBDL next season, and hopefully latch on to team like the Lakers, Kings, Warriors, Suns, or another team that would have seen him more over the course of his college career.

The key, as always, will be how hard he works. If he can prove to be a rebounder/hustle player I think he could make the NBA. He is not talented, but teams seem to need those guys that could give 3 or 4 good fouls a game against guys like Aldridge, Amare, and Jefferson.

I think if you want to see the Lakers take a UCLA player in the first round, Collison or Love would have to be the guy. Shipp and Mbah a Moute are more likely 2nd round picks.

Chances of getting drafted are slim to none.

He could find a place in the league, though. If people out there think Steven Hill can play in the NBA, then LMR can.

i really like L.R M'ba A Moute to the lakers in the late first round

imo he is exactly what they described as wanting or looking for when they aquired ariza-

mata-real is a very solid player for the bruins and is easily one of their top 6 or 8 pro prospects- likely a european or d-league pro
