On the Prowell in Orlando

An NBA scout has praise for the play of Auburn basketball player Quan Prowell.

Orlando, Fla.--NBA scout Ryan Blake said that Auburn senior Quan Prowell did a good job at the NBA Pre-Draft Camp.

The NBA Draft is scheduled for June 26 and the forward is considered a potential second round draft pick.

Prowell averaged 7.7 points and three rebounds in 20 minutes per game while shooting 56 percent from the field and 67 percent from three-point range in the NBA Pre-Draft Camp last week in which he played three games. With all players on the court for an equal amount of time, Prowell finished with a solid performance in his final game as he had nine points, four rebounds, two steals and a block in 20 minutes in the third and final game and was 4-of-7 from the field.

"Quan came in all business-like, and he played well," Blake said. "This was a camp that not a whole lot of people stood out because a lot played well. The ball was distributed evenly, and he shot the ball well and confidently. He had to play a lot of different positions, and he was in good condition. It was a positive, and he helped himself.

"Being in there in this deep draw is proof that teams wanted to see him again," Blake added. "It has opened the doors for him professionally for him to get onto summer league teams and so forth.

Marty Blake, director of NBA scouting, gave Prowell a thumbs up, too. "He is going to play somewhere," Blake noted. "If you need the money, you go to Europe. If you don't, then go to the D-League. He has a chance to play in this league."
