fredette should have left, point guards are few and far between this year
I agree. Jimmer got hurt in his workout with the Knicks, a quad injury, but he supposedly impressed in the other three workouts he had, which included the Nets, Celtics, and Thunder.
I'm pretty sure he was working out with Jordan Crawford with the Nets and Celtics, and apparently Crawford heard all of the right things. Looks like he will be a sure-fire 1st round pick unless he gets hurt.
JaJuan Johnson returning to Purdue, they will be a tough team to beat next year.
Kemba Walker---would have been the 2nd best PG prospect if he left too bad he woulda had a Ty Lawson/Jonny Flynn effect maybe start and come off the bench here and there def. 10,5,2 guy
Paul George, Luke Babbitt,Sanders,Jordan Crawford & Stephenson are going to be sleepers..Brackins might be this year's Taj Gibson..A mature talent that can help a team right away..Tiny Gallon might go undrafted but i'm sure some team will invite him to training camp..He might be another Big Baby Davis...It'll be interesting to see where Moultrie ends up..Kid has talent..But attitude was his major problem..
Eniel Polynice is an interesting prospect from Ole Miss. If you've seen the Spurs guard Garrett Temple, Polynice is the same type of player. Can't shoot/score worth anything at the NBA level, defends very tough, can play PG or SG, and highly unselfish. May not get picked, but he could be a late 2nd round pick to stash overseas for a year or 2.
Courtney Fortson was one of the more explosive athletes in college last year. He is fearless, strong, and a very energetic and intense player. He, however, takes horrible shots, is super duper TO prone, and has highly questionable character and intelligence. Probably a D-Leaguer or overseas player.
Mac Koshwal could be a good defensive role-player in the NBA and a 5th option player with a decent mid-range game for his size. He had to get out of the hell-hole that is DePaul though, but at least he was patient unlike his former teammate Dar Tucker.
The SEC has lost 10 players. Ouch
Arnett Moultrie is transferring. Smart move. UK needs a big man.
I'm surprised this guy had to even enter the draft, even more, I'm surprised he is even eligible to be drafted this year. According to this NBAdraft.net link below, about summer league rosters, he was with the Hornets. I would assume this would make one ineligible to return to college, and thus ineligible for any future drafts.
-about halfway down.
What is even stranger, is that he wasn't even a year removed from high school, but he was playing on the Hornets summer league team. Is that even possible? Someone needs to clear this up.
Moultrie wont be going to Kentucky, he will most likely end up at Memphis.
Yea Moultrie seems like a Memphis player.
Last I checked. UK was basically Memphis last year. haha.
What's the difference?
Of course, him being from Memphis will help, but Lexington isn't that far away from Memphis. I'm sure UK can find some grants/scholarships for him.
He's not going to Kentucky. He's not even considering going to Kentucky right now. The only thing that might keep him from going to Memphis are the conditions UTEP gave him when they released him.
Besides it's VERY unlikely that any recruit from Memphis will pick Kentucky over Memphis as long as Calipari is there.
Hes probably not going to Memphis. I really dont think the agreement is he can go to another team in Conference usa, ill have to look that up.
im not sure what the penalties are.
Actually hed lose a year of eligibility, and would have to pay for his tuition. Im not sure how rich his family is, but i doubt he goes there.
He would only have to pay tuition for a year and in state tuition at Memphis is pretty cheap. And if he got a loan he should be able to pay it back pretty easily once he gets to the NBA.
How do we know hes make the nba? if he went to Memphis hed only have one year of eligibility, instead of two. It would be a stupid move for his future, what if he has a bad season and doesnt go drafted?. He needs to keep as many options open as he can.
He will be able to play professionally somewhere even if he doesn't make the NBA. And what will that extra year of college do? He will still get a degree at Memphis if he went there. And he would be more likely to make it to the NBA at Memphis then at Miss State or Arkansas.
Revenger, you're right. I never thought about UTEP being in the same conference as Memphis. That changes everything I said, he'll probably go to whatever school Coach Barbeee went to.
He would lose a year of eligibility and have to pay tuition at Auburn to.
Yeah those are the only two schools that have those rules. Really its just Tim Floyd being an &$#%#&@! it has nothing to do with the conference. I think he could go anywhere.
Eniel Polynice did a 180 and has decided to play his senior year of college bball. However, it is very unlikely that he will be playing for Ole Miss.
That's kinda big news. He's probably going to go to a small school, like low major, to he can play without sitting out. If I'm not mistaken he has used his redshirt because of a broken leg injury.
I still don't understand the Quinton Watkins situation. In a post above I mention that he was on the Hornets summer league team. Unless he never showed up at the camp, I just can't understand how he is able to enter the draft in the first place.
