With the NBA season in full swing, NBA scouts and personnel directors are already shifting their focus to the 2004 draft.

Their challenge? Finding the next LeBron James, Darko Milicic and Carmelo Anthony.

This year, scouts believe a high school senior, several young international big men and two college standouts (one an incoming freshman) will compete for the honor.
