ESPN's Chad Ford: Stock Watch


Chad Ford updated his NBA draft Stock Watch yesterday and has moved Elias Harris up to #16. According to Ford, Harris has bounded up the rankings faster than anyone since the season began when he was at #30. If Harris declares, Ford says that he may be a lottery pick by then. It's looking more and more like he may be a "one and done". Come back Andy!

Other big movers up the rankings included Xavier Henry and Quincy Pondexter. The snippet from Ford's article after the jump. (You have to be an Insider)

Big movers 

Players ranked in the top 30 who moved up 10 or more spots in 2009

Elias Harris, F, Gonzaga

 

Harris is the most underrated freshman player in the country. International scouts pegged him early as a potential difference-maker after watching him play in Germany. Since his arrival at Gonzaga, he's wowed just about everyone. Harris has a motor that doesn't stop and has showed extraordinary toughness and versatility. Like the Mavericks' Shawn Marion, he seems capable of playing both the 3 and the 4 in the pros. 

 

Although no one would've expected Harris to be a potential lottery pick coming into the season, I think that's where he might end up landing if he declares. No one is moving up draft boards quicker at the moment. We've had him in our top 30 since November, and he's crept up to No. 16. By April, he very well could be in the top 10.
