This is the part where Tony Mitchell puts his mind on display. His physical gifts have never been in doubt. Physical gifts are why Mitchell began his sophomore season at North Texas as a lottery possibility and are now the reason he still has a good shot at the first round of the Draft -- despite his best efforts at playing his way out of guaranteed money. "He's the best athlete here," is how one general manager described Mitchell at the Chicago pre-Draft combine a couple weeks ago, a gathering of most of the top prospects. "It's not even close.

But he's going to have to learn to guard some threes. He's the second- or third-most athletic player in this Draft. Extreme athleticism ... he did not do well with the new coach's system [at North Texas]. A lot of ticky-tack fouls, careless fouls. But he will do very well with a team that plays in the open floor, plays an up-and-down system, like [Lakers coach Mike] D'Antoni." NBA.com
