Cleveland Round 1 , pick 11. EXPERT ANALYSIS
"Despite the lack of success on his last two possessions in the NCAA Championship game, you have to admire the way Trajan Langdon went out and played. In a game where Corey Maggette couldn't guard Mike Krzyzewski with his bad hip, William Avery looked like the pupil to Ricky Moore's teacher and Elton Brand saw the double team the way most of us see quantum physics, Langdon hit big shots and made big plays. He is a great shooter. Not a good shooter, but a great shooter. Langdon can hit the standstill jumper or coming off screens, and he does a nice job of hitting the runner when he can get by his man. If you foul him, he hits his free throws. Ready for the knocks on Langdon? He has great difficulty moving his feet. He struggles to get his own shot. He cannot stay in front of any reputable NBA guard on the defensive end. In short, Langdon is as slow as molasses in January. Langdon will be an NBA player because he has a needed skill that is absent from the NBA he can really shoot the ball. However, he will not be among the top picks, only among the top senior guards."
