Abandoned Vessels on State Waterways

California has the fourth largest boating population in the nation, with 626,642 registered recreational vessels in 2023. While responsible owners dispose of vessels lawfully, others abandon them on state waterways where they impede navigation, interfere with boating traffic, and cause environmental harm.

Our abandoned vessel removal program began when SB 595 (Wolk, Chapter 595, Statutes of 2011) was enacted. This law established an administrative removal and disposal process for abandoned and trespassing vessels on waterways under the Commission’s jurisdiction. The law authorizes the Commission to immediately remove a vessel without notice if it hinders navigation, is a threat to vessel operators, an environmental hazard, or a public nuisance. Although the authority created in SB 595 is exclusive to the Commission, local jurisdictions have the authority to remove abandoned vessels and frequently do so. Another abandoned vessel law was enacted in 2015 when   AB 1323 was signed into law. AB 1323 authorizes a public agency to remove and dispose of marine debris after 10 days if the debris is floating, sunk, partially sunk, or beached in or on a public waterway, public beach, or on state tide or submerged lands.

The Commission focuses its efforts on commercial vessels because no other state agency has both the authority and funds to do so. Recreational vessels are typically smaller and less expensive to remove, and funding may be available to remove them through the Division of Boating and Waterways Surrendered and Abandoned Vessel Exchange ( SAVE ) grant program.

Gretchen E.

The Gretchen E., docked.

In 2018, the Commission and the U.S. Coast Guard removed the derelict 55-foot, steel-hulled, landing craft–style Gretchen E. at Crockett Marina in Contra Costa County. The removal was precipitated by the U.S. Coast Guard responding to reported oil sheens and discovering oil bubbles coming from the Gretchen E. Commission staff worked with the U.S. Coast Guard to remove and demolish the Gretchen E. The initial plan, lifting the vessel out of the water by crane barge, was discarded because the Marina was too narrow for a barge to enter. instead, we refloated the boat, using a small boat to tow it out of the marina and then using two tugs—one on either side—to tow it across the Strait to Mare Island. This approach worked. We towed the Gretchen E to Mare Island and lifted it out of the water. We removed hazardous material and sent the vessel to a scrapper for demolition.

Spirit of Sacramento

The abandoned and sinking vessel, Spirit of Sacramento

The old  Spirit of Sacramento  was built in 1942 by the Berkeley Steel Construction Co. as a snag boat for the Army Corp. of Engineers and named the  Putah . It was last documented by the Coast Guard in 2000 as the  Grand Romance  at 82 ft. in length; 32.5 ft. in breath; drawing 3.9 ft. at a gross tonnage of 97 tons.

Previously named the  Chici San  it was used in the 1954 movie “Blood Alley” starring John Wayne. It was acquired by Star Excursions Inc. in 1991 for a show boat in Old Sacramento. In 1996 it burned to the waterline and was sold and rebuilt then moved it the location in the photographs on the Sacramento River. There it periodically was swamped and sunk until it was raised and removed by court order as the result of a lawsuit by the Commission.

free sailboats san diego

The San Diego, an abandoned vessel.

With her sister ship the Coronado, the  San Diego,  built by the Moore Drydock Company in 1931 in Oakland, at 191 ft. in length and 43 ft. wide, provided car and passenger transportation between the City of San Diego and Coronado Island before the bridge was built in 1969. Then purchased by the Olympic Navigation Company she served the route between Port Townsend and Whidbey Island in Washington.  The  San Diego  moved to Vancouver, British Columbia when its owners ceased operation in 1974 and remained for 20 years as the Klondike Queen,  waiting to be rebuilt as a paddlewheel excursion boat.

Brought back to California in 1994, she became the failed venture of the City of Antioch to turn her into a floating restaurant called Huckleberries. Sold to a Sacramento Corporation which operated riverboats, she partially burned and was eventually traded to an individual for Delta land. Then the  San Diego  was moored in the Sacramento River at the lower tip of Decker Island.

A phone inquiry from the Solano County Sheriff’s marine patrol questioned her right to be moored at that location, side tied to the  Faithful , a 293 ft. former cruiser/hospital ship. A threat of legal action resulted in the removal of the Faithful, but a lawsuit and years of negotiation was required to finally remove and demolish the San Diego. Various parts of her structure have been retained and are on display at the San Diego Maritime Museum.

Oakland / Alameda Estuary Cleanup

abandoned boat in the estuary

The cleanup efforts in the Oakland/Alameda estuary.

Officers with the Oakland police department first noted what a cleanup could accomplish when First Lady Michelle Obama visited the Estuary to christen a ship. On patrol of the Estuary, the large number of abandoned and derelict boats that littered the waters and shores were observed on a daily basis. The police department contacted the California Department of Resources, Recycling, and Recovery (CalRecycle) and requested the Commission exercise its authority under Public Resources Code Section 6302.1 to remove the vessels. With funding from CalRecycle and a matching grant from the Trust created from the penalties of the Cosco Busan oil spill, the effort started.

An initial survey in 2012 recorded the location of each boat, which was logged and photographed. Once funding was confirmed in 2013, a task force of Oakland and Alameda police, accompanied by other police agencies, the Coast Guard, and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, posted a 30-day notice of trespass on each boat. Boats remaining after the 30-day notice expired were towed and impounded. The few seaworthy vessels were eligible for release, but the majority were un-seaworthy and demolished. Altogether, trespass notices were posted on 38 boats, 18 boats left voluntarily, five moved within the Estuary and were later located and demolished, two left the Estuary but were later found derelict in other areas and recovered and demolished. A total of 58 abandoned or derelict boats were removed and demolished along with pilings, docks, and other shore debris.

Courtland Pontoon Boat

The abandoned and sinking vessel, the Courtland Pontoon Boat.

This pontoon boat was free floating down the Sacramento River near the town of Courtland. Commission staff procured the services of a Sacramento auto wrecking company and managed to pull the boat up the river bank and onto highway 160. After it emerged from the river it was discovered that its pontoons were flooded, which added about ten thousand pounds to the effort. Once they were drained, it was hauled off to the wrecking company’s yard.

Abandoned Commercial Vessel Removal Plan

AB 2441 (Frazier, 2019) requires the Commission to develop a plan to remove abandoned and derelict commercial vessels in the Sacramento San Joaquin Delta.

Best Management Practices for Marine Debris Removal

The Commission’s best management practices are advisory and guide local entities responsible for marine debris removal. The Commission adopted these best management practices in 2016, following the enactment of AB 1323  (Frazier), which required the Commission to adopt best management practices for marine debris removal after consulting with interested state and local entities.

From harbor to shining harbor: The freedom of anchorages

free sailboats san diego

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA — What does a public anchorage have in common with the Wild West? Nothing, at first blush, as anchorages are in the water and populated by recreational boats and yachts while the Wild West is generally associated with small desert towns where cowboys engage in duels. Public anchorages, however, mimics the Old West lifestyle when it comes to freedom of movement and the romanticism of roaming from place to place.

Public anchorages give boaters the ability to visit local harbors while roaming the high seas. Perhaps a boater is cruising from Seattle to San Diego and wants to make port in Santa Barbara for a few days. Conversely a family in Redondo Beach hops on their boat in King Harbor one morning and decides to spend some time in Dana Point. Free anchorages at these destinations and others allow boaters to make port at a harbor for a brief stop before moving on to other adventures.

Where in Southern California do anchorages still exist? Are public anchorages still in demand?

Where can you find an anchorage?

A pair of 72-hour anchorages and a Cruisers Anchorage is available at the Port of San Diego. Use of the anchorages are free but visiting boaters must obtain a permit at least 24 hours in advance and up to one year ahead of the planned visit.

Reservations for the anchorages at La Playa Cove and Glorietta Bay are accepted online at reservations.portofsandiego.org/boating .

Visiting boaters must obtain a permit for the Cruisers Anchorage, which is located at the eastern tip of Harbor Island and adjacent to the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station, in person at 1401 Shelter Island Drive.

Specific rules and regulations of each anchorage can be found at bit.ly/1RGiVKT . Dana Point

The harbor’s East and West basins both have a public anchorage available for visiting boaters.

One anchorage, located by the fuel dock, is charted and sparingly used. The other anchorage is located near the Ocean Institute and uncharted but frequently used. Both are free of charge.

Dana Point Harbor Director Brad Gross said there are always boats at the uncharted anchorage, especially during peak boating season. The local Harbor Patrol monitors the anchorage and often greets visiting boats.

Some anchorage users are locals while others are transients visiting Dana Point Harbor en route to San Diego. Transients often stop at the anchorage to load up on provisions before continuing south.

Newport Beach

A full-time public anchorage exists just east of Lido Isle. Newport Beach has already experimented with a second anchorage on the western side of Lido Isle and is contemplating bringing it back for another test run this summer.

“I think it’s essential to the harbor. People seem to enjoy it,” said Newport Beach Harbor Commissioner Joe Stapleton, adding the planned Lido Marina Village and Central Avenue Dock will be a great asset for anchorage users. “The east end of Lido is getting tremendous amount of use.”

Fellow commissioner Brad Avery echoed similar sentiments, likening anchorage use to camping but on the water.

“The appeal is you can show up without a reservation and anchor at no cost,” Avery said. “It’s a neat concept. It started off as a place for people to take shelter.”

Avery said the anchorage in Newport Beach is used regularly by a gamut of boaters.

“The existing anchorage almost always has a few boats in it, and in the summers it is packed on weekends,” he said in an email. “There is no demographic, you have the full range of locals and visitors, small and large boats, power and sail. Often there are groups from yacht clubs that raft up together.”

Being detached from land is an anchorage’s greatest appeal, Avery said.

“For many boaters, being anchored is to be free from the land, from fees, and have open water all around you,” he said. “It’s a totally different experience, of being disconnected, even in Newport Beach!”

Huntington Harbour

Sunset Marina Park, home to a 276-slip marina, features a temporary anchorage.

Santa Barbara

The city of Santa Barbara hosts a free summer anchorage just east of Stearns Wharf.

“Boats must stay 300 feet east of the Wharf,” said Santa Barbara Harbor Operations Manager Mick Kronman. “Beginning November 1, they must move farther east, to about a mile from the Wharf, to protect it from southeasterly winter storms — they can actually anchor there anytime (we call it the ‘year-round’ anchorage), but during the summer, most prefer to be closer to the harbor.

“Anchoring out is free,” Kronman continued.

Anchorage users in Santa Barbara sometimes have to relocate to inside the harbor due to small craft advisories or poor weather conditions, according to Kronman. The relocation is not free, however.

“When Small Craft Warnings (or worse) are posted, we allow anchor-outs into the harbor, because we’re a legislatively designated Harbor of Safe Refuge,” Kronman said. “When they’re in the harbor, however, they need to pay transient slip fees like any other visitor.”

Marina del Rey

The U.S. Coast Guard retired an anchorage in Marina del Rey last year. The closure means Marina del Rey no longer has a public anchorage within the harbor. One boater said he is unsure whether a new place for boats to park on the open water will return in the near future. The anchorage was at the north end of the main channel in Marina del Rey, according to boater Jon Nahhas.

“There is no anchorage inside Marina del Rey Harbor and the outside anchorage, 1,000 feet from the south entrance to the jetty, doesn’t provide ‘Safe Harbor,’” Nahhas said. “We’ve contacted the Coast Guard, NOAA, and the Coastal Commission about what we consider to be an unlawful county code moving boaters into harm’s way without shelter. The county’s response to our concerns is that visiting boaters can rent the guest slips at Burton Chace Park (I think they are at $1.50 a foot now) and that if the Coast Guard issues a small craft warning (high winds) they will aide boaters in getting from the illegal outside anchorage to the slips they are renting at Burton Chace Park.”

Stearns Wharf in Santa Barbara

Anchorages are a resource & a liability 

Carter Ford, a boater who lives in Newport Beach, said anchorages are an important resource for boaters.

“Anchorages are one of the resources that harbors offer. They provide safe haven from the at times stormy ocean; very important for mariners’ safety,” Ford told The Log in an email. “They are more economical than marinas, which makes boating, especially long-term, more affordable.”

Ford echoed Avery’s comments about anchorages providing boaters with open space on the water.

“Boats staying in [anchorages] are more spread out than in marinas, and have appeal for aesthetic and environmental reasons, to locals as well as visitors,” Ford said. “I’ve chosen to spend some nights in both Newport anchorages just for the joy of overnight escapes.”

However, anchorages, depending upon whom you ask, could be a liability.

A handful of Newport Beach residents who have waterfront homes near a proposed public anchorage have complained of such infrastructure limiting their views of the harbor.

In 2008 the Port of San Diego shut down A-8 Anchorage near National City, which was free and open to boaters for long-term use. The unlimited, free anchorage was reportedly home to several derelict vessels and too costly to maintain. Harbor Patrol reportedly complained of a steady dose of criminal activities occurring in the area.

There are also questions of whether a boater might move from anchorage to anchorage to avoid paying slip fees.

Ford said shifting to different anchorages to avoid slip fees is not practical.

“Boaters aren’t ‘abusing the system’ to avoid paying slip fees by moving around. Slips are often unavailable as well as costly. There’s significant time and effort involved in relocating a boat from one anchorage to another (often to a distant harbor),” Ford said.

Kronman echoed similar thoughts, saying, “There is really no system to abuse” of Santa Barbara Harbor’s anchorage.

Waterfront residents and anchorage-using boaters can co-exist, according to Ford, so long as the proper education and enforcement measures are in place.

“Anchorages are not of themselves a nuisance,” Ford said. “If shore side residents are offended by looking at boats in the harbor they should have bought on a golf course. These are public waters.

“Yes, harbor users of all types need to be good neighbors, including not being noisy,” Ford continued. “The bay-boat late night cruisers are far and away the worst offenders, they are having a good time and either forget or maybe don’t care that noise carries dramatically across the water.”

Spreading the word

Newport Beach is contemplating a second public anchorage west of Lido Island. The anchorage could become a permanent fixture if enough boaters use the venue.

Ultimately anchorage use comes down to informing boaters where such boat parking lots exist, placing them nearby local (and accessible) amenities, and keeping regulations reasonable.

“The way local officials can make them used more is by publicizing them, and providing amenities such as shore access,” Ford said. “Also allowing limited side tie-ups, up to three boats say, can be appealing. This uses space much better and should be allowed. (This is now considered technically a raft-up, which is too restrictive.)”

8 thoughts on “ From harbor to shining harbor: The freedom of anchorages ”

Cool and the very last speck of freedom anywhere, even here in our great nation built upon personal FREEdom, (such as it is with regulations, limited stays and billions of other laws / restrictions etc)…

Also available for free anchorage are the many coves on our nearby channel islands. A mainland anchorage not mentioned is Paradise Cove just east of Point Dume.

How is using an anchorage to avoid slip fees bad? Slips are conveniently located to land, and parking, for people that need it. We shouldn’t have to pay for an anchorage. Filing a permit with the harbor master, providing proof of insurance, and registration, should be enough.

In 1996 Filthy Phil Mcnair at Glorietta Free Anchorage was THE last resistance to the freedom-despising bureaucrats, and other DESPICABLE UBER-CONTROL FREAK VERMIN… The folks out at that Coronado Island anchorage had finally lost their futile legal battle against over-arching authoritarianism, and freedom-fighter Phil made his last valiant stand for liberty, swinging a 2 by 4 plank at the heads of the San Diego Harbor Patrol “Puddle-Pigs” who had arrived in their patrol boat to seige, and tow away Phils’ three boats away to their destruction… A Harbor Patrol officer in my phone call from Houston gleefully related this all to me, adding that all three sail oatd were dragged up on a marine railway, and demolished in a field, and ol’ Phil Mcnair was last reported living in squallor underneath the Coronado Bridge….. In retrospect, I CONDEMN, and vehemently CURSE the greedy ORWELLIAN society of contemporary California, in whrenching TECTONIC VIOLENCE CRUMBLE, and COLLAPSE, SLIDING IGNOMINIOUSLY INTO THE DARK, UNFORGIVING PACIFIC DEPTHS TO ULTIMATELY LAY FORGOTTEN, and UNLAMENTED by future generations of humanity…..

We need more freedom and liberty in what we call the land of the free. C”mon whats wrong with free anchorages its not free you have to get there, then buy your ecentials and make the place a fun place not a stuck up bunch of armchair quarterbacks that have no energy. Just do it anyway that will give them somthing to yell about… Thars what they are good at.. Raining on the parade.. Wow!

I think every marina should legally be required to provide a temporary anchorage for safety.

I completely agree!

Slip fees have been ever increasing to the point where a larger and more comfortable live aboard vessel, like a 55 footer, now costs the price of a mortgage payment on land! It’s horrible that there are not more permanent and free anchorages everywhere there are harbors! Not everybody wants to be glued to the terrestrial tariffs of governmental control!!

San Diego, CA offers a massive buffet of fishing opportunities, ranging from offshore waters teeming with tuna to lakes and reservoirs bulging with bass. So grab your rods and reels, get your fishing license, book your fishing charter , and prepare for some awesome fishing fun.

Follow this beginner’s guide for tips and tricks for fishing in San Diego and other nearby locations.

Where to Fish: 4 Best San Diego Fishing Spots

You have almost endless options when choosing where to fish in San Diego, including:

  • The open Pacific , for pelagic species. Inexperienced anglers will want to consider hiring a fishing charter, as heading out into the ocean requires experience and knowledge.
  • San Diego Bay , to target inshore species. San Diego Bay is a unique fishery and has the west coast’s lone stock of bonefish. Plus, you can rent a fishing boat here and strike out on your own.
  • In the surf , along the public beaches. This can be a very relaxing way to fish, but it can be frustrating at times too, because surf fishing forces you to stick to one spot and wait for the fish to come to you.
  • San Diego’s lakes and reservoirs . These waters are known for producing some monster bass, and several breaking the 20-pound mark have come from the waters around San Diego.

As well as learning where to fish in San Diego , you also have to find out where not to fish. California has a number of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) where fishing isn’t allowed. There are three types of MPAs including State Marine Reserves (SMRs), No-Take State Marine Conservation Areas (SMCAs), and State Marine Conservation Areas (SMCAs) where some fishing is allowed. The specific rules, regulations, and MPA borders can be confusion, so be sure to check out the San Diego MPA Fishing Guide before you set out to explore unfamiliar fishing grounds.

fishing in san diego bay

What to Fish for in San Diego: Top Species List

The range of options is huge, but anglers fishing in the Pacific can encounter:

  • Albacore, bluefin and yellowfin tuna
  • Calico bass
  • White sea bass

San Diego Bay is known for the following fish species:

  • Croaker (primarily yellowfin but multiple species)
  • Sand and spotted bass
  • Sharks (multiple species)

san diego fishing calendar

Freshwater lakes and reservoirs in the area commonly have:

  • Catfish (multiple species)
  • Largemouth bass
  • Rainbow trout
  • Striped bass (limited to certain lakes)

When to Go Fishing

While most venues will offer year-round action to some degree, in the ocean and bay the best fishing generally takes place from spring through mid-fall with a slow period during the winter months when many species migrate away. That said, some species (such as sand bass, sharks, and yellowtail) can sometimes be caught right through the winter. And during the tougher fishing seasons, anglers who don’t own their own boats may want to opt for a fishing boat rental to expand their options, so they aren’t limited to a single location.

Freshwater fish, of course, don’t migrate (or at least not very far). However, their metabolism does slow down during the winter months and as a result, they chase baitfish with a bit less zeal. Fish like largemouth bass also tend to move deeper as the temperatures fall, forcing anglers to switch tactics and lures.

san diego fishing guide

How to Fish in San Diego

As you might expect, anglers apply a wide variety of tactics and gear depending on the specific fishery they’re targeting.

  • In the case of fishing for pelagics in the ocean, the common techniques include trolling, fishing live baits, and kite fishing.
  • Close to shore and in the bay, using live bait, cut bait, and light tackle jigs and spoons is common.
  • Certain fisheries, such as the bonefish action in San Diego Bay, require specific techniques (casting small grubs and soft plastics or fishing ghost shrimp on egg sinker rigs) targeted towards the species.

Whichever fishery is being targeted, spinning and conventional gear can both be used in most cases just as long as the weight class is appropriate. In freshwater, fly fishing is often quite popular as well.

Okay: are you ready to hit the water and enjoy some southern California angling action? Gather up your gear, and get ready to have a blast while you cast.

What's open and closed in San Diego County on Juneteenth 2024

A mericans will celebrate  Juneteenth  on Wednesday, marking the day when the last enslaved people in the United States learned they were free.

For generations, Black Americans have recognized the end of one of the darkest chapters in U.S. history with joy, in the form of parades, street festivals, musical performances or cookouts.

The U.S. government was slow to embrace the occasion — it was only in 2021 that  President Joe Biden   signed a bill passed by Congress  to set aside Juneteenth as a federal holiday.

Here's what to know about this federal holiday and what it mean for U.S. workers on June 19 this year.

Are businesses open on Juneteenth?

Most private businesses, including national retailers, will be open on Juneteenth. Big box retailers like Costco, Walmart and Target will be open on Juneteenth.

What's open and what's closed on Juneteenth in San Diego County?

All San Diego County offices, family resource centers, libraries and animal shelters will be closed to the public on Wednesday, June 19.

All County public health clinics will be closed on Wednesday. County offices will resume normal business hours on Thursday.

Law enforcement, emergency animal control response, and other essential services will remain open through the holiday, according to the County of San Diego.

SOME OPEN/SOME CLOSED:

County parks, campgrounds and neighborhood day-use parks remain open 365 days a year. That being said, the following locations will be CLOSED on Wednesday:

  • Fallbrook Community Center
  • Lakeside Community Center
  • Spring Valley Community Center

What is Juneteenth?

The celebration started with the freed enslaved people of Galveston,  Texas . Although the Emancipation Proclamation freed enslaved people in the South in 1863, it could not be enforced in many places until after the end of the Civil War in 1865.

Laura Smalley, freed from a plantation near Bellville, Texas, remembered in a 1941 interview that her former master had gone to fight in the Civil War and came home without telling his slaves what had happened.

“Old master didn’t tell, you know, they was free,” Smalley said at the time. “I think now they say they worked them, six months after that. Six months. And turn them loose on the 19th of June. That’s why, you know, we celebrate that day.”

Union Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger and his troops arrived at Galveston on June 19, 1865, with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. That was more than two months after Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered to Union Gen. Ulysses S. Grant in Virginia.

Granger delivered General Order No. 3, which said: “The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of personal rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and hired labor.”

The next year, the now-free people started celebrating Juneteenth in Galveston. Its observance has continued around the nation and the world since. Events include concerts, parades and readings of the Emancipation Proclamation.

Why is it called Juneteenth?

The term Juneteenth is a portmanteau of the words "June" and "nineteenth." The holiday has also been called Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day.

Alex Sarr, Stephon Castle among top 10 2024 NBA Draft prospects

Sarr, a forward, and castle, a guard, are highly touted to go near the top., by sanjesh singh • published june 18, 2024.

The 2024 NBA Draft has been a guessing game.

And that'll continue until the Atlanta Hawks -- barring a trade -- make the first pick on Wednesday, June 26, when the first round begins.

24/7 San Diego news stream: Watch NBC 7 free wherever you are

Because there is no generational prospect this year, like Victor Wembanyama in 2023, who will go No. 1 overall is completely unknown.

Glass half empty, it's quite unlucky to have first dibs this year. A year's worth (or more) of shaky results may not result in a potential long-term gem.

Glass half full, maybe a diamond in the rough is unearthed through proper scouting and development.

So, which players could see their names off the board early in Brooklyn, N.Y. ? Let's look at some of the top prospects to watch for in the 2024 draft, in no particular order:

Alex Sarr, F, Perth Wildcats (NBL) and France

Clippers hiring Jeff Van Gundy as lead assistant, report says

Just who exactly is the best prospect is different for most experts and scouts. The best way to tell is by judging which players have the skill and profile to be difference makers at the highest levels of the game. It's not always easy because growth isn't linear, but it's a good way to start.

Why Sarr stands out is because he's 7-foot-1 with a 7-foot-4 wingspan, moves well laterally, can handle the ball and initiate plays and protect the rim.

There's plenty of room to grow in terms of passing volume, decision making and hitting deeper shots, but the 19-year-old has the profile of a special talent should things pan out.

Zaccharie Risacher, F, JL Bourg (LNB Pro A of France)

NBA teams love a good 3-and-D wing. It's no wonder they're always in demand. But quality ones are hard to find.

Risacher's elevator pitch would be just that. His floor is a 6-foot-8 wing with a 6-foot-9 wingspan coming off a season in which he shot around 35% from deep on decent volume along with reliable ball-handling and defensive abilities.

He'll need to develop a stronger dribble-drive game to reach the next level. His burst isn't that fast but his lanky frame allows him to create separation more seamlessly than others. He knows what he wants to do with the ball, whether that's hitting the next teammate or producing a shot for himself.

Stephon Castle, G, UConn

UConn boasts two potential lottery picks in this draft, with one of them being Castle. A combo guard measuring 6-foot-5 without shoes and a 6-foot-9 wingspan, Castle has the knack to play the game at his pace, whether that's with crafty passes or driving downhill.

Castle's biggest flaws involve shooting. He can be inefficient and his 3-point shot is severely lacking. He shot 26.7% from deep on 2.2 attempts, which won't cut it in the NBA.

Turning 20 in November, his highest ceiling is at the 1 as a lengthy point guard who can defend multiple positions and knock down deep shots. He'll need plenty of work to get there, so if a team has time to develop him, they should be all over him.

Ron Holland, F, G League Ignite

Another potential high-end 3-and-D player is Holland, who's been with G League Ignite. Holland is one of the youngest players in the class at 18 but plays a little beyond that.

At 6-foot-6 with a near 6-foot-11 wingspan, Holland is extremely sound as a versatile defender. He's a shifty lateral mover and can hang with smaller players with speed.

Where he'll need long-term improvement is his shooting. He can attack the basket and score off slashing, but his spot-up shooting is too wobbly to make a tangible difference. His release has a low starting point and his free-throw numbers aren't the best. However, he can be a useful playoff rotation player at just league average shooting.

Dalton Knecht, G/F, Tennessee

Knecht at 23 is one of the older players in his class, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Desmond Bane, a senior out of TCU, went No. 30 overall in 2020 and developed into a special two-way guard.

It's not a guarantee, but Knecht has some similarities. He's a multi-level scorer who thrives the most from range, converting on 39.7% of 6.5 attempts. He can do it spot up or off the dribble and can adjust on the fly. He's not the best shot creator, but there's definitely the possibility of him being a robust 2-guard who can spend time at the 3 in small-ball lineups.

Defensively, Knecht, who is 6-foot-5 with a 6-foot-9 wingspan, needs to improve with his lateral movement to stay on the court longer. Otherwise he'd be a mismatch for faster players regardless of size.

Matas Buzelis, F, G League Ignite

Buzelis is this year's primary northeastern Europe project. At 6-foot-9 with a 6-foot-10 wingspan, the Lithuanian is a playmaking power forward. He's likely too lightweight to be a 5 in the NBA, but he's a silky offensive creator who has shown flashes of being a capable initiator.

He'll need to be a much better shooter to reach the next level. His high release oozes promise, but his numbers on all levels are inconsistent.

His best moments defensively have been as an off-ball defender in help scenarios, otherwise his frame can make him a target. He's a player who'll need the most time possible to extract the best version of him.

Reed Sheppard, G, Kentucky

Three-and-D wings are one thing, but 3-and-D guards can be just as useful in certain scenarios. Patrick Beverley and T.J. McConnell are some that stand out. Derrick White is a slightly taller version.

Sheppard, a 20-year-old Kentucky product, may fit that billing. At 6-foot-2 with a 6-foot-3 wingspan, Sheppard's height is his biggest drawback but he has the ability to immediately fit into a team's rotation.

He's an excellent on- and off-ball defender in spite of his size, and his 3-point shooting complements his game. He shot 52.1% on 4.4 attempts this past season, which won't fully translate to the NBA but demonstrates the levels he could be at.

For a team who isn't looking for the next superstar, Sheppard checks numerous boxes as a safer bet.

Donovan Clingan, C, UConn

Don't fall for any narrative that discredits traditional centers. They're still valuable, especially ones with athleticism.

Clingan, at 7-foot-1 with a 7-foot-7 wingspan, does all the basic things at a high level. He rebounds, blocks, dunks and sets screens like NBA teams would want.

But how high is his ceiling?

He is not a floor spacer and his free-throw numbers don't suggest he'll develop into one. He's also a slow perimeter defender and isn't the best post scorer, though his size and strength could get him there with time. If a team is looking to add an interior presence with upside, Clingan could be a better version of Utah Jazz' Walker Kessler.

Rob Dillingham, G, Kentucky

In terms of dynamic scorers, Dillingham is easily one of the best in his class. Like his teammate Sheppard, Dillingham's main knock is his lack of size at 6-foot-1 with a 6-foot-3 wingspan. He's also not as adept as a defender.

But if you're looking for a potential sixth man, Dillingham can get to his spots on all levels and knock down shots at efficient clips. His passing also started to improve as the season progressed, but he'll still need more work to run NBA-level offenses.

He gives off vibes of a Tyrese Maxey lite or a potential Malik Monk archetype, both of which are valuable in today's NBA.

Devin Carter, G, Providence

Speaking of the Boston Celtics ' White or even Bruce Brown of the Toronto Raptors, Carter, a 22-year-old out of Providence, could also be a Day 1 rotational player.

At 6-foot-2 with a strong 6-foot-9 wingspan, Carter does all the little things on both sides of the ball to an extremely high level.

He made 37.7% of his 3-pointers on 6.6 attempts, hauled in 8.4 rebounds and has no issues guarding multiple positions, regardless of his size.

Some questions will be the effective of his 3-point stroke since it's low and partially sideways, but players like Tyrese Haliburton also have awkward releases that convert at efficient rates. He's someone you would want in your playoff rotation.

Trail Blazers Insider and Digital Reporter, @CHold presents his 2024 Draft Prospect Profile. 👤 Devin Carter pic.twitter.com/eEp7zAcsye — Portland Trail Blazers (@trailblazers) June 17, 2024

Honorable mentions

Cody Williams, G/F, Colorado : A 6-foot-7 wing with a 7-foot-1 wingspan. Has 3-and-D potential but is quite raw.

Tristan Da Silva, F, Colorado : Efficient spot-up scorer who can play the 3 and 4 and can hold his own defensively without elite athleticism.

Ryan Dunn, F, Virginia : Arguably the best defender in his class at 6-foot-6 and a near 7-foot-2 wingspan, but significantly needs to develop a shot. Has Matisse Thybulle shades.

Harrison Ingram, G/F, UNC : Potential 3-and-D gem in the second round at 6-foot-5 with a 7-foot wingspan and shot 38.5% from deep on 4.6 attempts.
