2009 NBA Draft Skills Challenge: Best Rebounders

 

2009 NBA Draft HQ!While the 2009 NBA Draft isn't particularly strong at the center position, there's a good amount of power forwards and larger wings who can rebound the ball. The lone exceptional big man is Hasheem Thabeet, and though he isn't a dominating rebounder yet, he can hold is own. The best rebounder is Blake Griffin, the probable #1 pick, and he's followed by the likes of DeJuan Blair and Jordan Hill. Less-heralded prospects like Jeff Adrien, Jon Brockman, and Jeff Pendergraph grabbed a ton of rebounds in college, while wings like Earl Clark and Damion James can do damage on the glass as well.
