2011 NBA Draft Combine: Derrick Williams, Tyler Honeycutt, Nikola Vucevic, Klay Thompson Big Pac-12 Prospects

There are plenty of Pac-12 names that will be participating in the NBA Draft Combine, as many of the best talents in the West are taking their abilities to the pros. In a pretty weak draft, this might be the best move for most of them, since not many would likely get drafted this high in subsequent drafts. 

The most recognizable name is Derrick Williams of the Arizona Wildcats, who is a definite choice to end up the number one overall pick. Also in the mix is the mercurial Tyler Honeycutt of the UCLA Bruins, who has NBA ability but was inconsistent in Westwood, the scoring machine Klay Thompson from the Washington St. Cougars, the underrated post defender and rebounder Nikola Vucevic of the USC Trojans, the elite wing defender Malcolm Lee of the UCLA Bruins, and Isaiah Thomas of the Washington Huskies. Lots of Pac-12 talent in this draft, and the best player in the conference could end up being the best player in this class.
