Larry Vaught caught up with Matt Kamalsky (Draftexpress.com) and Ed Isaacson (NBAdraftblog.com) and neither one of these draft experts have Marquis Teague in their projected lottery for the 2012 NBA draft.
Isaacson thinks Teague’s strong NCAA Tournament play that helped UK win the national championship “opened some eyes” with NBA teams.
“It showed that he had certainly worked on some of his weaknesses from earlier in the year. I would be stunned if he was a lottery pick, and he wouldn’t be one of the first two point guards picked if he came out. If he was to go back and pick up where he ended this season, he will find himself in the lottery conversation, and possibly the first point guard picked next year,” Isaacson said.
Any chance we see Teague back in the blue and white next year if he’s not a lottery pick? He needs to work on certain parts of his game and it wouldn’t hurt our chances to repeat if he’s back in for his sophomore season.
