I grew up on Long Island, graduated from Syracuse University, live in Manhattan, and have worked with NBADraft.net since 2010 to help scout/project high school, college and international NBA prospects. As Bleacher Report's Lead NBA draft writer, feel free to contact me with any thoughts or questions you might have on prospects or the draft. Or on Breaking Bad—I can always talk Breaking Bad.
You compared Exum to MCW and in your latest mock draft had Exum going to Philly. So if they are the same type of player how will they mesh.
Thanks, keep writing great articles. I'm a big fan of the Draft.
I also wanted to say that you are one of my favorite writers on Bleacher Report. Keep up the good work!

Jonathan, I am really interested on knowing where you stand with Bryce Cotton.
jonathan assuming wiggins parker and embiid are all gone when its bostons turn to pic the celtics would be wise to take vonleh and fill there greatest need at the center position its no secret that boston has not had a true center play for them since robert parish more than 30 years ago to suggest otherwise only shows how ignorant you really are LMBO but ime not surprised coming from a knicks fan .
I'm really feeling compelled to become a sportswriter. I know its the one thing that I want to do for the rest of my life. I'm willing to go back to school for multimedia journalism and do all of the stuff at the bottom of the totem pole to have a career in sports writing. I just don't know what other steps to take to get in the right direction other than keep writing articles and get some exposure somehow. Do you mind just giving some quick advice that I probably haven't thought of?
Hey, I've got some questions about a few guys in the tourney this year
Jarnell Stokes is playing like a monster. Do you see him sneaking into the first round like Mitch McGary last year?
Josh Richardson of Tennessee won't leave this year, but does he have a shot to get drafted if he keeps up this level of play?
How do you see Xavier Thames panning out in the NBA?
Jonathan, do you think Embiid's injury will stunt his development even in NBA or is it just a short term one?
Jonathan, who do you think the Lakers should pick at next year's draft? I'm thinking they should draft a Center, but I'm not sure who might be available for them at a projected Top Top 15 spot. I've watched this kid Isaiah Austin a few times and he looks really promising, do you think he'd be a good pick?
