U-18 European Championship: The Wings
by  Luis Fernández

Although two of the players featured here, Edwin Jackson and Dairis Bertans, were rightfully rewarded with all-tournament-team honors, you won’t find any clear-cut top NBA prospects on this list. The superb streak of small forward projects seen in the 1987 and 1988 classes hasn’t found continuity in the 89/90 age groups. It’s mostly a collection of promising shooters that should be able to feed the European ranks with firepower for years to come.

U-19 World Championship Review: Big Men
by  Luis Fernández
We finish our player-by-player recap of the U-19 World Championships with the big men, basically centers but also potentially power forwards that have evolved primarily as low-post players in this tournament. There was a nice group of interesting prospects here that will surely develop into competitive players in the future at the senior level. The list is opened by MVP-award winner Milan Macvan, who led Serbia to the title.

Player Movement on the European Summer Market
by  Jonathan Givony

Continuing to explore the behind the scenes world of the free agent market, we take a look at the just-as-intriguing (at times) world of the European transfer market, which represents a true hierarchy of “haves” and “have-nots”. The top guns of the Euroleague continue to reload thanks to massive budgets-- rivaling their NBA counterparts at times—while we continue to see some of the top international players move to the NBA—and the players they replaced on rosters move to Europe. A more disturbing trend has to do with the recent trend of American players and their clubs buying or acquiring Eastern European passports – a true win-win situation for both parties involved, but extremely damaging for the moral integrity and competitive nature of the sport.

Boost Mobile Elite 24 Hoops Classic Report
by  Joey Whelan
Rucker Park has always been synonymous with exciting, crowd pleasing basketball. The high flying, fast paced brand of basketball played there is as much a part of the culture at Rucker as the court itself is to downtown Harlem. The arrival of twenty-four of the country’s best high school players on Friday night for the Boost Mobile Elite 24 Hoops Classic made for another electrifying night at the famed park. DraftExpress was in attendance as the Goat Squad came away with a 169-164 victory over the Skip To My Lou Squad.

Blog: The Off Season Part 4
by  Rodrique Benson
My offseason continues to roll on as August passes and September comes in. I arrived in Sacramento 3 weeks ago direct from my NBA Fair extravaganza in North Dakota. Since getting up here, things have really slowed down for me. It seems like everything I do now has a meaning to it. The season is right around the corner, and what I do now will have a direct correlation with the season. I think they call this focus in some places. If so, this is the most focused I've ever been, but that doesn't mean that I can't have different kinds of excitement along the way.

U-19 World Championship Review: Forwards
by  Luis Fernández
It's time to take a look at the forwards in our player-by-player recap of the U-19 World Championship. Here we find some of the best prospects seen in Novi Sad, including Nicolas Batum, Michael Beasley or Víctor Claver.

Is the NBA Full?
by  Jonathan Givony
Is the NBA reaching full capacity? According to a slew of unsigned veteran free agents, 2nd round picks, undrafted rookies, and their distressed representation this summer—that seems to be exactly the case. Whereas in most years there are a host of teams with roster spots for an agent to choose from, things appear to be slightly different this time around.

Blame the luxury tax. Blame the international players. Blame the fact that geezers like Reggie Miller, Dikembe Mutombo and Kevin Willis refuse to retire. But realize that more than ever, the waiting list to get into the NBA is getting longer and longer, while the amount of spots stays the same or even gets shorter with teams like the Washington Wizards or New Jersey Nets considering carrying only 13 players to steer clear of the tax.

U-19 World Championship Review: Guards
by  Luis Fernández
As promised, we take a look back at the U-19 World Championship celebrated last month in Novi Sad to individually check on the best players seen in the competition. We start with the guards.
