   Sham's unnecessarily great big draft board: Small Forwards

Xavi Rabaseda - The same could be said of Xavi Rabaseda, another of the Fuenlebrada youth crop that also produced Bismack Biyombo. Unlike Biyombo, however, Rabaseda has not really done anything. A big minute player last season, averaging 22.0 mpg in 33 of 36 games, Rabaseda averaged a rather average 8.6 points, 2.4 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game. He shot a sedate 42.6% from the field and a below par 31.4% from three point range. with a near 1:2 assist to turnover ratio. He has a nice size for the position, but not much stand-out production to date.

Why is he here, then?

Possibly because he's a product of the Barcelona youth system (he's merely on loan to Fuenlebrada), which gives a prospect's resume added clout. Possibly because he started this season strongly, before a truly underwhelming second half. Possibly because he's fairly fluid, and just looks right, even if he has no one obvious plus point. Or possibly all of the above.

The truth, though, is that I'm not really sure. His reputation - that of having much potential - precedes him, and he appears to still be dining out on it. You'd think a shooter would shoot better than that. To his credit, Rabaseda has no stand-out weaknesses, a high IQ, the right frame, and enough good games to his credit to merit interest. We shall see where it all takes him.
