Scouts go back and forth on which Great Lakes State sophomore they feel is the better prospect -- Michigan's Nik Stauskas or Michigan State's Gary Harris. Both have suitors -- Stauskas for his shooting ability, Harris for his consistency and potential as an NBA defensive stopper. But Stauskas appears to be inching in front of Harris, though both are expected to go either in the mid-to-late Lottery or shortly thereafter. NBA.com

At least one general manager likened Gary Harris to Washington's Bradley Beal, though he has yet to show the shooting range and touch Beal did in his one season at Florida. "I think he has a chance to be a really good pro defender," a Northwest Division executive said. "When you're talking about two guards, he might be the best two-way player in college at his position." Having the Michigan State pedigree does nothing but help Harris as well. "What makes him coveted, at least from my perspective, is that he was with (Michigan State Coach Tom) Izzo all that time," an Eastern Conference general manager said. "That kid comes in as a grown-ass contributor, because all he's tried to do is produce." NBA.com
