10 players who improved stock in summer
We debuted our 2011 Top 100 the day after the 2010 NBA draft. Now we're ready for our first big update of the summer. But how can college and international players improve their stock during the offseason?
Well, there isn't really an offseason anymore. College players serve as camp counselors at events such as the LeBron James Skills Academy and the adidas Nations camp. At the end of the day, the camp counselors play full-court scrimmages against one another and sometimes against NBA players. Scouts watch every move. Have the NBA hopefuls gotten stronger? Are they in shape? Have they improved on a perceived weakness?
A number of prospects also have played for their national teams in international competitions around the globe this summer.
Here's a look at 10 guys who have helped their stock this summer along with our updated Top 100 list.
