Who's up for some weekend lunch box links?

Specifically, some weekend NBA DRAFT COMBINE lunch box links? Ooooooh!

Let's start with a look at how the prospects measured up this weekend via what should be your go-to source for draft info around this time of year, DraftExpress.com.

Of note for Raptors fans, Dion Waiters and Damian Lillard both measured under 6-3 without shoes but had impressive 6-7 wingspans, while Jeremy Lamb measured out very similar to Sonny Weems!

Next, over to ESPN.com where Andy Katz looks at three prospects who have a point to prove in this year's draft. Also, from ESPN.com, a look at HQ fave Damian Lillard, who made his mark last season at Weber State.

One of the aforementioned players discussed by Andy Katz seems to be an intriguing option for Bryan Colangelo and the Toronto Raptors but TSN.ca's Tim Chisholm says "please no." In his post for "The Cheap Seats," he discusses why Jeremy Lamb would be a terrible fit for the Dinos.

The best case for Lamb according to Draftexpress' "best-case/worst-case" compares?" Kevin Martin.

Moving along we've got an interesting interview by Bradley Beal where he talks about potentially being the number two pick overall, and playing for Michael Jordan. And from the draft rumour mill, it sounds more and more like the Cavs, drafting at number four, are targeting UNC swingman Harrison Barnes, and the Bobcats are open to trading their number two overall pick.

Paging Bryan Colangelo...

Finally, let's not forget about the second round of the draft.

Slam Online looks at some potential second-round impact players, including another HQ fave, Jae Crowder.
