Kyle Gibson, 6' 5", SG, Louisiana Tech

The Suns brought Gibson back for a second look on June 21.

Pablo Aguilar,6' 8" PF, Spain

Face up stretch four with limited inside game. Pablo withdrew from the 2010.

Gavin Edwards, 6' 9", PF, UConn

The Suns brought Gavin back for a second look in June 22.

Aubrey Coleman,6' 4" (6' 1.5" w/o shoes), SG, Houston

Draft Express says:

Coleman's saving grace is the contributions he makes on the boards and on the defensive end, where he plays with high intensity consistently, putting his physical tools to use to disrupt the opposition. He approaches the game with a high motor in general, and his offensive problems appear to be more about not having much familiarity with team basketball than him being selfish. Coleman lacks a significant amount of high-level experience, as he did not play much basketball in high school, went to a junior college, and then played in an extremely loose system under Tom Penders at Houston.

Osiris Eldridge, 6' 3", SG, Illinois St

Undersized two-guard with a scorers mentality

NBADraft.net says...

Strengths: Undersized 2-guard with excellent athleticism and scoring ability … Routinely makes highlight plays at the rim … Aggressive driving to the basket. Has excellent physical strength to absorb contact and finish off drives to the basket … An explosive leaper ... Very fast in the open floor … He’s an excellent pull up shot off the dribble. Has a pure shot when he squares his feet and goes up balanced … Also displays the ability to create against bigger defenders … Solid spot up shooter. Uses picks well to create shots for himself …

Weaknesses:
Lacks a true position at 6'2 playing the shooting guard position … Struggles to make plays for others and run an offense … Much more comfortable off the ball. While he shows some vision and passing ability, he’s not a point guard and likely will struggle to play much there even in mop up duty … His lack of size forces him too often to attempt fadeaways instead of going straight up on outside shots … For such a good shooter, he should be more proficient from the free throw line. 70% in his junior year was a disappointment ... Too often leaves his feet before passing, creating unnecessary turnovers … Playing in a small conference hurts his cause. Even though he’s a dominant player, he’s doing it mostly against inferior athletes …

Perry Stevenson, 6' 9", PF, Kentucky

Thin, and doesn't seem to have impressed too many people with his skill set

Andy Rautins, 6' 4", SG, Syracuse

Outstanding three-point shooter, lacking NBA physical tools and ability to attack the basket
