Former Creighton guard Davion Mintz is a hot name in Kentucky as a potential addition to the Wildcats’ basketball roster. Evan Daniels sparked the interest when he logged a pick for Kentucky on Mintz’s Crystal Ball, coinciding with a lot of online buzz about UK finding a new guard from the grad transfer market.

We should do a YouTube scouting mission just in case Mintz lands in Lexington…

 

Here’s a video previewing his 2019-20 season before he suffered a preseason ankle injury that cost him the entire year:

 

In this video we see Mintz as a freshman at Creighton in the 2016-17 season:

 

So YouTube’s Davion Mintz inventory needs a restock. How’s knowing he led the Big East in assist-turnover ratio as a sophomore in 2017-18? In 2018-19, he started all 35 games, averaging 9.7 points, three assists and three rebounds in 28.8 minutes per game.

Keep an eye on him.

    Am I the only one who thinks this is not big news? Okay he played a lot but hasn’t been super productive? Coming to UK, typical grad transfers see their production cut in half. I’m not really impressed. Seems like circa Kevin Galloway hype to me

    It’s big news in that it’s another lead guard since it’s extremely likely IQ follows Maxey and Hagans.

    Gives Cal an option besides having to run 2 freshmen out there to handle the ball all game (Askew and Clarke). He’s had success with it in the past, but it’s really helpful having a guy who’s played college ball to help steady the ship when most freshmen hit that wall. Like most 4-year players, he’s not all-world. He’s just a comparatively known quantity.

    I never watch these “highlight reels” until players actually commit. What’s the point if they could be taking their talents elsewhere and leave us wondering what could have been?

    once he hit the portal, Creighton fans were saying they understood the move. Said he wasn’t going to start for them next year. And he is the number 33 grad transfer according to ESPN. He will be a solid 7th or 8th man. I assume that is what they plan to use him for, depth.
