This matchup is battle of pure "tweeners", meaning guys who could play small forward or shooting guard in the NBA. We have a player with potential lock-down defensive ability, Reggie Bullock, going against a draft-and-stash prospect, Alex Abrines. Having two prospects with different traits on the floor should make it a good matchup in the poll below this article to see who moves on to the second round. Who will win this compelling battle and move on in the tournament?
As we implemented in the Isaiah Canaan versus Lorenzo Brown article, we are also using Chad Ford (ESPN.com NBA Draft insider) positives and negatives on these prospects. We will also, as always, use the Draft Express videos to help you all out with making your choice. Below is the ESPN Insider information on both prospects and the Draft Express videos as well.
Bullock or Abrines would give Indiana much needed depth, scoring, and versatility off the bench. Both of these prospects could stretch the floor well as a 2 or 3 on the next level. After I exchanged emails with some NBA scouts, mostly all agreed both could play both positions in the NBA. Also comparison-wise, the scouts compared Bullock to a more defensive-oriented Chandler Parsons while Abrines received a near consensus of Rudy Fernandez.
After the analysis from ESPN's Chad Ford and Draft Express, who should advance on to the second round? Will it be Reggie Bullock or Alex Abrines receiving your vote to move on in the Indy Cornrows 23rd Pick Tournament?
