NBA Camp: Top Post Performers

On Monday we released our top perimeter performers from NBA Players Association Camp. Today it's time to take a look at the top post performers from the event in Charlottesville (Va.).

Size: 7-8/200 |
Quick Take: Playing on a team that also included T.J. Warren and Andre Drummond, not many would have expected Jefferson to lead his team in scoring, much less the entire camp, but Jefferson did just that. The 6-foot-8 wiry forward prospect showed he could score in a variety of ways and he used his face up ability to attack the rim and score loads of points in transition. He finished averaging 20.8 points per game.

Size: 7-8/190 |
Quick Take: He capped a strong spring with a monster performance at NBA Camp. Ashley is a versatile forward prospect with the tools to one-day play for pay. At his size he moves extremely well and has an impressive all around skill package. Sure he still needs to get stronger, but right now he's playing an aggressive brand of ball and is making plays on both ends of the floor. He averaged 14.2 points per game.

Size: 7-11/220 |
Quick Take: Not only did Woodbury, a 7-footer, walk out of NBA Camp with the MVP trophy, but he also led his squad to the camp championship. At times, Woodbury was down right dominant in the paint. He forced double teams, scored over highly regarded defensive players and facilitated offense out of the post. The light is coming on and it's coming at just the right time. Woodbury averaged 11.3 points per game.

Size: 7-8/255 |
Quick Take: In a setting with some of the nation's best big men in attendance, Parker made sure to play with passion and aggression. He attacked the opposition nearly every time he touched the ball and he looked good in the process. Parker played like he had something to prove and showed scoring moves and an aggressive nature that we hadn't seen from him in quite some time.

Recruiting: Duke, Ohio State, Memphis, Kansas, Texas

Size: 7-10/245 |
Quick Take: His rise in the rankings was certainly warranted and up against the top guys in the country McGary didn't waver. McGary, a 6-foot-10, 245-pound center, was aggressive, played with emotion and scored in a variety of ways. He runs the floor well, is active on both ends and showed a face up jump shot that caught defenders off guard. McGary averaged 12.3 points per game at camp.

Size: 7-7/230 |
Quick Take: Picking up where he left off at Pangos camp, Bennett, a 6-foot-7 forward, played with energy on both ends of the floor. He's a nightmare to try and defend because of his versatility, toughness and motor. The fact that he's added a legit jump shot to his arsenal makes him even more difficult to defend. At camp defenders also had trouble keeping him off the glass. Bennett averaged 12.1 points per game.
