5. Reggie Perry
Coming out of Mississippi State after only two seasons, Perry is one of the more versatile big men entering the NBA draft. Fitting more the modern big man mold, Perry excels at defending the pick and roll and can even use his athleticism to switch on to guards to show out on the perimeter and then drop back into the paint.
Perry was also an efficient double-double machine last season, he averaged 17.4 points and 10.1 rebounds per game while shooting 50 percent from the field. He also showed the ability to stretch the floor for someone his size at the collegiate level. But it remains to be seen if he can hit the NBA 3-pointer at a reliable rate.
From the college 3-point line he shot below 30 percent last season, and his freshman season he was not much better shooting just above 32 percent. His game is much less built on being an outside threat as it is being a brute force down low with his physical strength, and he is also a great threat to catch a lob and throw it down at the rim, something the Lakers love to do.
He would be an intriguing fit as a replacement for McGee or Howard, should either of them retire or leave for more money via free agency in the next couple of seasons.
