The article says that Green's versatility, on display in Atlanta, will be a prized commodity on draft day. And Green is nothing if not versatile: As a senior last season, he led the Spartans in scoring, rebounding, steals, field goals and three-points. His 10.6 boards per game were also tops in the Big Ten.

The article quotes Hawks coach Larry Drew:

"I think he's going to be a terrific NBA player," Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew said Tuesday after the team put several prospects through pre-draft workouts. "I don't think there's enough players like him that bring a little bit of everything to the game. But he certainly is that type of player, that caliber of player....

"I think he can develop into a three. I think he has that versatility where you can move him around. A lot of it depends on matchups. But I think he has the foot speed and the size to play the four, and I think that's just going to be a plus for him and his game to move from the three to the four," Drew said after watching Green work out. "As I said before, this league is really starting to move more toward that versatile player, a guy who can play multiple positions. And he certainly fits that profile.", one of the Web's eminent NBA mock draft sites, currently has the 6-7 Green going to the Oklahoma City Thunder at No. 28 overall.
