I just noticed that Clippers.com has a Q&A up with Jared Jordon- here's a snippet:

On playing in the Pre-Draft Camp...

"My mindset going into that was I knew I had to play well and show I can play against the top competition. I needed to show I could run the team. I know I can pass the basketball and the athletes on my team made my job easier. The Pre-Draft Camp helped me a lot."

On who he models his game after...

"My game is pattered after Steve Nash. I try to do what he does, like pass the ball, and I have to run a lot like he does and keep players off-balance. Some of the tricks he has I still have to pick up, but I try to pattern my game after him as much as possible."

On being a late second round pick...

"A lot of players go under the radar. I've been under the radar for a lot of my life, like I was out of high school. Hopefully I'll have a great career in the NBA."

On his impressions of Los Angeles...

"I don't know too much about it, but people I know love it out here. It's my sister's favorite city and she said she wants to move here. From what I hear it's a great city, that the weather's perfect and I'm looking forward to living here."

I think he's ready to play in the NBA right now. His passing and court vision is better than most players. He's limited athletically, and probably needs to improve his jump shot...but other than that, he's the real deal. Diaz is still a bit raw, he needs to refine his game from what I've seen in the summer league. Not that Diaz absoultely needs a year in the NBDL, its just that instead of riding the bench or maybe getting a few looks, he can still play all year and improve hisself.
