My series of quick breakdowns of some of the top players in this draft and what NBA teams have noticed continues with the big men (power forwards/centers.)   

The variations of types of these players is great at the NBA level, and this list shows many of those types.  There are big men who can stretch the floor, classic post big-men who play with their back to the basket and athletic big men who like to get out in transition. 

What a team looks for varies based on the style of play the team prefers.
