The Tribune's NBA mock draft: Picks 11-20
7-foot-1, 250 pounds, center, Illinois, 20
Strengths • Leonard is very mobile for a big man, and has a glob of potential. Improved drastically from his freshman to sophomore year at Illinois.
History • Leonard became one of the best big players in the Big 10 last year, holding down the paint. His stock rose considerably, as a result.
6-foot-4, 197 pounds, point guard, North Carolina, 20
Strengths • There isn't a better passing point guard in the draft, as Marshall is capable of creating good looks off the dribble. Improved his scoring and quickness last season.
History • Marshall took over the starting role midway through his freshman season at North Carolina. The Tar Heels took off as a result. His team was hurt significantly when he missed the latter half of the NCAA Tournament due to injury.
13. Phoenix Suns
6-foot-10, 216 pounds, power forward, North Carolina, 21
Strengths • A great shot-blocker and athlete, Henson's body and game reminds many of Hakim Warrick, a forward already on the Suns roster.
History • Henson arrived on campus as an incredibly skinny freshman. He's still incredibly skinny, but he's much more skilled. He's one of the more NBA-ready players in the field.
6-foot-9, 268 pounds, power forward, Ohio State, 20
Strengths • Will be able to step in immediately and score on the blocks. Sullinger is a load to handle in the paint, and has developed a reliable shot from 18-20 feet.
History • Sullinger's stock has taken a significant drop because of a back that has general managers concerned. He also has top-10 talent, so he could be a steal at this point.
Tyler Zeller, 7-0, 247 pounds, center, North Carolina, 22
Strengths • Zeller runs the floor better than any big man in this draft. He can shoot the jump hook with either hand, and he blocks shots as well.
History • Zeller's been a three-year starter under Roy Williams and is another big man ready to step in and contribute. This would be a good fit for Philly.
Moe Harkless, 6-foot-9, 207 pounds, small forward, St. John's, 19
Strengths • Has a ton of potential as the youngest player in the draft. Harkless is athletic and could pay huge returns a few years down the road.
History • Harkless played much better for the Red Storm in the second-half of the season. By the end of the year, he was arguably the best freshman in the Big East.
Terrence Ross, 6-7, 197 pounds, shooting guard, Washington, 21
Strengths • A shooter with length and athleticism, which is just what the Mavericks need. Ross can score off the dribble and on the catch-and-shoot.
History • Ross played two years at Washington, where his play was disappointing at times, despite his lottery talent. Maybe that's why he's pegged in the low teens.
Perry Jones III, 6-foot-11, 235 pounds, small forward, Baylor, 20
Strengths • Jones III is one of the most talented players in the draft, physically. From the neck up? That's a different story. It will be interesting to see how hard he works to reach his vast potential.
History • Jones III is an all-conference small forward who has come up small way too much in the past few years. But, his Baylor Bears reached a regional final last season, so he has won and has experienced success.
Royce White, 6-foot-8, 261 pounds, small forward, Iowa State, 21
Strengths • White may be the best all-around talent in the draft. Does a bit of everything, and is a great athlete as well.
History • White has significant personal issues. If he can keep them under control, he can have a very good career. If he can't, his baggage will cause great concern for whatever team drafts him.
Terrence Jones, 6-foot-9, 252 pounds, Kentucky, 20
Strengths • Can play either forward position, can rebound and can score. Is a good ballhandler in traffic, and knows how to win.
History • Jones is a two-year starter for John Calipari, and was one of the best freshmen in the country during his rookie season.
