This post is regarding a draft prospect who is under the radar, or simply not on many teams' radars at all, but many believe has an immense amount of potential and possesses attributes that our ball club needs now. This player is Damon Powell, an Oakland native and McClymonds High School Alumni. He is listed at 6-7, 215 lbs and would provide us with the much needed perimeter defender we are seeking who can guard the Jordanaires of the league. He's won such accolades as "Best Defensive Player" and "Mr. Hustle" awards. Not only that, he has experience in the ABA. He can also produce offensively, having shot 58 percent from the field in the ABA. I strongly believe this man is a complete steal if we can draft him at 44 or sign him as an undrafted rookie. If we took on 2 undrafted rookies this past season then we should definitely not pass on Powell. Not to knock on Jeremy lin or Jeff Adrien, but Damon Powell has tremendous upside and potential and is extremely athletic far beyond either of those two, which will make Oracle Arena go crazy, not to mention he's from Oakland. If you don't believe me go peep the article DimeMag wrote on him, with a highlight video.
