West Coast Camps: Top Performers

In the first ten days of the July Evaluation Period there were seven players who shined above the rest. Here are our top performers.

Quick Take: Edosomwan continues to improve and he was dominant in the Los Angeles tournaments. His midrange shot keeps getting better and his first step going to the basket from the high post has been impossible to stay in front of. Edosomwan gives good effort every game and it helps him as rebounder and on defense.

Quick Take: Isaac Hamilton was a scoring machine and put the ball in the basket almost every way imaginable. His offensive arsenal continues to evolve and what he lacks in athleticism - where he's good but not great - he makes up for in scoring prowess. From his outside to midrange shot to the amount of ways he can score heading towards the hoop, few players out west can put up points like Hamilton.

Quick Take: What Hamilton is for guards out west in 2013, York is in 2012. Fresh off his commitment to Arizona, York was firing away in Los Angeles and was particularly lethal from outside and taking the ball to the hoop. An expert in the transition game, York's body control allows him to score easily going to the basket. He's becoming more adept at creating contact and going to the line and his floater is improving as well.

Quick Take: Physically, Wood has everything you're looking for. He's a long athlete with good hands and good athleticism. More of a face-up four with a very good looking shot, when Wood gets in the post his rebounding ability and soft touch make him tough to control. There's a lot to like about the future UNLV forward.

Quick Take: An absolute shot blocking machine, Bell is a good defender in general and also is a very strong rebounder on both sides of the court. His offense is slowly improving and he showed the ability to step out and hit the outside shot, as well as score on putbacks. If the offense keeps evolving, watch out.

Quick Take: Carter's skill set and motor make him one of the more productive power forwards on the West Coast. The Las Vegas big man is best from the high post, where he can knock down the midrange jumper or cut to the basket for a lay-up or find an open man for an assist. Carter also rebounds well and competes on the defensive end.

Size: 7-9/205 |
Quick Take: Allen played well in Los Angeles, particularly from behind the arc where he did a good job not just hitting threes but also keeping an eye on cutting teammates and hitting them perfectly for assists. Best in transition, Allen goes hard to the basket and gets several easy points on the break every game. Allen also did a good job on the defensive glass.
