NBA Draft - Opt Out Ramifications

Much to my surprise, Chase Budinger has opted out of the draft. Andy Katz writes a nice brief piece on the consequences of the tough decisions made on Monday.

With Ty Lawson and Lester Hudson BOTH opting out of the draft, does this mean that one of the internationally-based point guards who impressed at Eurocamp has slipped into the first round?

Also, despite what has been said about Luc Richard Mbah a Moute's draft stock, do not be surprised if a team comprised of shooters drafts him to be the quintessential garbage man. Every successful team needs that piece in building a champion and Mbah a Moute has proven that he doesn't need to score to be a contributor.

More to come ...

Can you have more Rondo ads up?

Chase's return makes Zona a lock for #1... k maybe not, but at least we're in the top 25 again!

Arizona may not be the best team in their state next year, let alone a top 25 team. Budinger does make them better. All they need now is some stability in the coaching department and an ability to retain recruits.
