1. Brice Sensabaugh

Heading into the NBA Draft process, Brice Sensabaugh is beginning to become one of my favorite possible selections for the Miami Heat. However, there’s a growing chance that he won’t be available by the time the Heat goes on the clock. Ultimately, how he performs during the pre-draft process will end up deciding that.

On paper, Sensabaugh would seem like an excellent selection for the Heat. Sensabaugh is coming off a freshman season in which he averaged 16 points and five rebounds on 48 percent shooting from the field and 41 percent shooting from 3-point range. NBA scouts have knocked him for his inconsistent defense, but he has all the tools and athleticism to be a good defender at the next level.

That’s just something you have to trust an organization like the Heat to get out of him. What I love most about Sensabaugh is that he was a professional shot-maker in college. And that’s not something that can generally be taught.

Sensabaugh is not the most complete prospect on this list by any means, but I just have a feeling that he’s only scratching the surface of the player that he can be and I trust that the Heat would be able to get the most out of him in the long run.
