Miami's JACK McCLINTON NOT GETTING DRAFTED!?

Come on, this guy was a 2-time 1st team All-ACC player. He ended this year on a bad note because he couldn't rest his knee which was plaguing him for the 2nd half of this season. For a man with such talent, such relentlessness and fearlessness, how can he go undrafted???

Have u seen him play?

Uhh he's a 6'1 shooting guard with no pg skills and he's just a shooter and can't really create for himself

Talent in Europe

He's a great shooter... at 6'1". He has almost literally nothing else. Trust me the reason Stephen Curry is considered an NBA player is that he can do more than shoot it... although not many people know that.

Yea he's a good player, heck of a shooter, but like AJ Abrams he is undersized for a 2 guard and therefore scouts think he would struggle at the next level and they're probably right.

Jack

I go to UM and ill be the first to tell you, Jack is no NBA player. Not only is he small but he's a one-dimensional player. I went to every home game this season and yea, he played well on most nights and has great range on the jumper but he would not stand a chance in the NBA, sorry Jack. If someone wants to take a chance and draft him in the 50-60 range thats fine I guess but if I were an NBA GM I would look elsewhere.

remember....

Any1 remember salim stoudamire??? He could shoot it in warm ups and shootarounds in the nba but when he had to defend and handle the ball and actually do other things besides shoot,he was exposed as someone who couldn't play nba basketball.mcclinton will probably deal with the same things

Eddie House

Thats a good example, the guy can play so I think he can make some money in the NBA because shooting is that important.I feel that he is a better player than Salim Stoudamire was as far as handling the ball and creating for himself.I think some smart team should take a chance on him in the second round and give him a real opportunity to make they're squad.

Jack

I used to play with him on occasion at my local YMCA when we were in highschool. He was a really nice kid, if a bit cocky, and by far the best basketball player I've ever played with. This has nothing to do with whether he'll be good in the NBA but I will always root for him to make it in the league.
Jack seems like the kind of headstrong player that could just ball out in predraft camps so I expect him to be a late 2nd round pick. He is a staple in the second round of my mock draft.

idk

Ive seen mcclinton play and yes he is a dead on shooter. But i honestly believe JJ redick is a better and smarter player than mcclinton and jj is getting no time in the nba. I mean ppl remember adam morrison who shoots and drives but he is getting no time. I dont really kno if jack is better than eddie house anyway

shooter

There's always room somewhere for a great shooter on an NBA team. Just look at Eric Piakowski, Steve Kerr, etc.
