Saw this before work this morning and was surprised it never made it to the board here!

Gonzaga seems to get top recruits and if they have a chance to make a lot of money thru a narrow window of opportunity, its all good...

however I do miss the guys who perhaps were not flashy but stayed the 4 yrs.....it seems it would be difficult to run a program with players popping in and popping out......

are we becoming Kentucky?

Just wondering if any of these guys actually watch NBA games and be able to see where they are as players in comparison.

I doubt it. I am sure they don't even LIKE basketball.

What exactly happens in a predraft process? If it involves getting a SWAT analysis from an NBA scout on your game you gotta imagine some scouts are put off a little by having to provide to anyone who asks for the coming draft

Just give em a DVD of NBA highlights and say "can you do this consistently." With an ending credit that reads "no."

I don't know, but I think there is a finite number invited to the combine. Other than that, probably have scrimmages and try to show off a little, but that is a total guess.

Change of rules will likely cause every kid and his dog showing up. I wonder how many will get A good look due to the sheer volume of players!

I agree. At some point the "benefit" of an evaluation is going to go away as there is a finite number of players teams can evaluate, and as much as I like Petrusev's potential, why would a scout/team spend much time looking at him now? While not intending to be critical, even under the new rules, I don't really see the point of Petrusev declaring. On the other hand, there's really no drawback, so maybe that's the point.

It Petrusev is as good in practice as advertised by some on this board (never misses).....my bold prediction for this years draft.....Petrusev gets drafted. kills it at the combine

Teams draft for potential and offense. GM's watching Collins in playoffs might get enticed. just a WAG

watch those Duke highlights again

And maybe gets stashed in Europe a few years, a la San Antonio.

I'm not saying this is you Zagceo, but just to make sure everyone is clear on the new draft rules:


Players can hire an agent and still choose to return to school, BUT

Players have to decide if they're officially staying in the draft or not by May 29.


In other words, someone like Filip can't find out if he gets drafted or not and then return to school if he's not. If he stays in the draft, he's stuck moving on and can't come back even if he isn't drafted.

So happy to learn Tillie will be back. Did Petrusev withdraw name from draft as well? I lost track of his progress. It felt like he was really just testing interest and always planned to return.
Anyone recall an announcement? Today is last day to withdraw, right?

Nice! Methinks all the incoming bigs are gonna light a fire in Petrusev and we’ll be seeing a much more aggressive player next season. Timme strikes me as a dude who brings the intensity... match it or sit.

Petrusev might be the only early entrant who returns to his team and not be in the starting lineup the upcoming season.

I fully expect Timme and Tillie to start together up front.

Watson to back up Kispert and whomever is at PF.

Followed by Petrusev at Center for either Timme or Tillie.

Petrusev to still log 18-20 mins a game.

Ballo spot minutes. Pavel RS or garbage minutes.

And a player who may never start a game at GU.

He most certainly would have had we not had a 5th year senior miraculously come back from a back (and a big back at that) injury, one in which the odds were very much against him.

Still, I remember Collins in during crunch time in plenty of games, and would've been in more had he … not been out of the game due to fouls.

More and more in our system it would be hard for players to complain about not starting. Yes, it is affirmation, but so is PT when the game rides on the next 5 minutes.

I wouldn't worry about it if I were him.

He's valued. Anndddd, there's no rule that says that a guy can't be moved into the starting lineup if he cannot be kept out (see Morrison, Pangos, Bell, and a million others I am forgetting).
