Height/Weight: 6-foot-4, 195 pounds

School: Louisiana Tech

Age: 22

Scouting report: Hamilton averaged 20.1 points, 6.3 assists and 5.6 rebounds as a senior. His shooting range needs improvement, but he made 56 percent of his 2-point shots, and his ability to play both guard positions gives him a chance to find a home in the NBA.

Outlook: Potential second-round pick


Height/Weight: 7-foot, 244 pounds

School: Vanderbilt

Age: 20

Scouting report: The Baton Rouge native, a product of Scotlandville, improved his scoring average and field-goal percentage in each of his three seasons at Vanderbilt, adding to his appeal as a prospect. He has a wide wingspan and an NBA-ready body that make some scouts think he can become a defensive anchor. Outlook: Probable first-round pick


Height/Weight: 6-foot-10, 256 pounds

School: Louisiana-Lafayette

Age: 23

Scouting report: Originally a Mississippi State signee, the Morgan City native thrived with the Ragin’ Cajuns, averaging 17.3 points and 10.7 rebounds in 135 games. He’s a high-level rebounder (12.1 per game as a senior), and that skill typically translates. His age could hurt him, but there are teams eyeing him in the second round.

Outlook: Potential second-round pick


Height/Weight: 6-foot-6, 187 pounds

School: LSU

Age: 21

Scouting report: Quarterman’s NBA potential starts with his size and length. He’s an improving passer and a streaky shooter, but he lacks strength and isn’t an explosive athlete, meaning he’ll likely struggle to find ways to score at the next level.

Outlook: Unlikely to be drafted.


Height/Weight: 6-foot-10, 239 pounds

School: LSU

Age: 19

Scouting report: Though scouts have dissected everything from his mental toughness to his suspect jump shot, nobody doubts Simmons’ raw talent or feel for the game. He’s a high-level passer who will play point forward in the NBA and could elevate teammates if he’s surrounded by the right cast.

Outlook: Presumptive No. 1 pick to the Philadelphia 76ers
