Kansas Jayhawks Basketball: NBA Prospects on 2012-13 Roster

Kansas head coach Bill Self might not be running the NBA prospect factory that John Calipari is in Lexington, but Self has an excellent track record for developing young talent.

Dozens of Jayhawks have seen little or no playing time during their early days in Lawrence only to later hear their name called in June.

The all-around games of big men Thomas Robinson, Cole Aldrich, Marcus and Markieff Morris were all significantly developed under Self and his current staff (including the recently departed Danny Manning). 

Each of those future 1st round draft picks arrived on campus as highly regarded recruits, and while the NBA potential existed, enormous holes in their future development remained. 

With one of the deepest classes in Kansas basketball history in 2012 and a trio of savvy veterans that watched previous starters win multiple Big 12 championships, Bill Self's 2012-13 squad not only has a chance for a return trip to the Final Four, but also contains a plethora of NBA prospects.
