   2011 NBA Draft Diary

Pick 59: The Spurs pick again, which guarantees a draft-and-stash is coming up. Sure enough, they pick up a Hungarian swingman by the decidedly American name of Adam Hanga.

Hanga is not as obscure as the others. Indeed he was sufficiently on the radar for me to mention him in my round-up of the prospects at the shooting guard position. Any claim I may make to have regularly watched Hungarian league basketball would be a lie - I have only read and seen what any man can read and see via the internet. But Hanga has been on the radar for a couple of years, and is no wildly unknown commodity. He has developed slowly but surely, and is becoming a solid quality player, even if he is only about the same calibre of player as Cory Higgins.

Hanga has already signed to play in the ACB this season with Manresa. The ACB is to the Qatari league what a full body massage is compared to a heavy beating with a bag of spanners - incomparably, immeasurably better. In the ACB, Hanga will be tested, evaluated, developed and coached. If he's going to become anything of significance, we will soon know.

This is what a draft and stash candidate should be like. Between Hanga and Bertans, the Spurs picked two good ones. No Sergei Karaulovs in here. Not for San Antonio, at least.

   Sham's unnecessarily great big draft board: Small Forwards

Adam Hanga - A combintion of his domination of the Hungarian league (of all places) and a powerhouse agency (FCM) has made Hanga into a possible second round draft-and-stash candidate. Playing for Albacomp last season, Hanga averaged 17.6 points, 4.4 points, 3.4 assists and 2.8 steals per game, shooting 45% from the field and 38% from three point range on six attempts per game. Rather than pretend I regularly watch Hungarian league action, here's some tape.

Looks pretty smooth, as one game sample sizes go.

Hanga has already signed for next season with Manresa in Spain, and would thus clearly be a draft-and-stash candidate. But given the lack of good sized offensively skilled wing players right now, wouldn't it be worth it?

Adam Hanga - 59th pick, 2011
The next Jonathan Simmons on tap. Improving with the ball and from outside, and an explosive presence on either end, disrupting defensively and adding a dimension offensively. Euroleague DPOY ready for the next level, especially since his contract is expiring.
