Did former Jayhawk Devonte' Graham catch a break or a bad deal with Charlotte on Sunday?

Even without your interest the NBA is booming now like never in the history of the NBA. Pro basketball is being played all over the world. Pro baseball, on the other hand...

Trying to get as much money as possible, and getting paid a fortune for your skills is the epitome of capitalism. The NBA is pure ultra strength capitalism. It is all about the money.

Bryce, are you a socialist?

Report: Dedric Lawson agrees to free agent deal with Golden State after going undrafted in NBA Draft

Turns out the NBA Combines actually matter... a lot, where Dedric was at or near the very bottom. Dedric's skill set is excellent, but his athleticism is his Achilles heel. Even NBA 7-footers are quick now, and can shoot from range.

As far as Dedric staying, could KU have made him a quicker faster player, or anyone else? Roy Williams really pushes players to play faster and it shows, but not sure this is HCBS focus. BTW, Grimes Combine results were also very poor relative to the competition.

I believe Doston would have been drafted as his potential with his speed is NBA draft worthy. Ironic, he is the one that appeared from the outset to only be trying to find where he rated, but seemed certain to return.

Quentin Grimes withdraws from NBA draft pool, plans to transfer from KU

Or, maybe the feedback the NBA gave Grimes was that Grimes needed to be in a different college program than KU in order to better develop the things he needs to develop. What would you do if you were in Grimes' shoes and NBA teams were giving you this feedback? And, just maybe, HCBS agreed with that feedback, because Self I think shoots straight with kids in this critical stuff with his players' futures. Again, what would you do then?

Quentin Grimes withdraws from NBA draft pool, plans to transfer from KU

It turns out that KU had two of the slowest players in Grimes and Lawson in college basketball, and man it showed all season.

Great move by Grimes and very mature as well, a wonderful talent that had a very tough freshman year who would do well with a reset in another college program instead of the Turkish League, or some other remote god-forsaken outpost.

Jayhawk Breakdown: NBA scout sizes up Devon Dotson's pro prospects

Brett, I hope you are right, but I will also gladly take the other side of that bet. I would love to see Devon try guarding someone like Kyrie Irving.

Jayhawk Breakdown: NBA scout sizes up Devon Dotson's pro prospects

I strongly disagree that there is "no doubt" that Dotson has an NBA future. He is not an NBA lock. Dotson is an extremely good college player, already, and he will improve, regardless if he stays or goes. But, the one critical area that he will almost not improve upon is his height. There is not a single NBA player currently playing where Dotson can deny their three point shot attempt. Dotson's height along with his leaping ability are just too short to defend the perimeter in the make-miss 3-point NBA.

Jayhawk Breakdown: NBA scout sizes up Dedric Lawson's pro prospects

NBA is a make-miss 3-point league, which means that for Lawson he must demonstrate the ability to generate and knock down 3's, while being able to defend the 3. Lawson does not have the size, strength and athleticism to defend the rim, or be a factor around the rim defensively or offensively at the NBA level. I hope Lawson's 3-point shooting and ability to generate his own 3-point shot really impresses at the combine, because that will be his ticket to NBA interest at least.

Two new names on KU's radar who are considering reclassifying into the 2019 class

I have a horrible feeling that the NCAA will say absolutely nothing. It feels as if they just want the DeSousa matter to just go away at this point without their having to weigh-in, like a referee or umpire not wanting to make a close call. They do not want any mud on their boots.
