If anyone truly knew how long it'll take Zach LaVine to make an impact in the NBA, he would likely be either one of the top picks or a late first-rounder. The potential is there, and everyone can see it. LaVine has good size at 6-foot-6, 181 pounds, he's one of the best athletes in the draft, and he's still young.
The former UCLA Bruin comes in at No. 12 on Chad Ford's latest Big Board update, a few slots higher than before due to an impressive showing at last week's NBA draft combine in Chicago. But, as Ford and fellow ESPN Insider Jeff Goodman will tell you, there is still a wide spectrum of opinions on what his future holds in the NBA and how soon he may have an impact.
