Of note among that group is Arsalan Kazemi who Evanz mentioned just yesterday as a player to keep an eye on.
An excerpt from DraftExpress about what makes him such an attractive prospect:
Kazemi is grabbing 9.8 defensive rebounds per 40 minutes pace adjusted, ranking third among all power forward prospects in our database, and 13.4 total rebounds per 40 minutes pace adjusted, which ranks fifth. Simply put, he's a rebounding machine at the high major level, which is by far his biggest selling point as a pro prospect.
Early on in his career there was some school of thought that Kazemi may eventually have to transition to playing on the perimeter, something that looks unlikely given his development thus far. Considering the way the NBA game is evolving, though, that might not be necessary. Players like Kenneth Faried (measured 6-6 without shoes), Thaddeus Young (6-5 ¾ without shoes), Chuck Hayes (6-5 1/2), DeJuan Blair (6-5 ¼), Jeff Adrien (6-5 ¼) and Jason Maxiell (6-5) see significant minutes in today's NBA and are more than holding their own on the interior.
