Reid Travis finishes 4th in an anonymous "who would you want to coach" poll

Anonymous coaches are at it again! This time talking to Matt Norlander of CBS Sports, discussing which eligible college basketball player they would most like to have on their roster.

Reid Travis was the only Kentucky player listed and was named by 9 percent of the coaches that disclosed their votes to Norlander. That was good enough to be tied for fourth place with SEC rival Grant Williams.

I don’t think anyone should have any major issues with R.J. Barrett at No. 1. I disagree with Zion Williamson and Carsen Edwards at No. 2, but I’m not overly passionate about it. Both are great players that should have good seasons.

But how is P.J. Washington excluded by these college coaches? He averaged 10.8 points and 5.7 rebounds on a team that featured two NBA lottery picks and three other players that are currently on NBA rosters.

If you’re worried about Duke having two players at the top, there seems to be a bit of a CBS Candid Coach curse. Only one player who received the most votes has gone to the Final Four and no player has helped lead their team to a national championship since CBS started doing this in 2012.

There’s plenty of good analysis and interesting quotes from coaches, so read the rest of the story HERE.

    Where’s Keldon? If nothing else, you want him on your team so you don’t have to go against him. Unbelievable talent and motor.

      I agree and I’d eat a hat if he wasn’t on this list if they did it at the end of the season, but there’s never been much national buzz around Keldon (despite being a five-star MDAA). I’m sure he notices.

    We can run Duke out of gas!! If necessary, in the end, we just foul their worst free throw shooters… We have lots of superstars!!!

    You must be outside your mind. You’d rather coach freshman, with their childish mentality and ego, over the PAC-12 player of the year and a fifth year senior. Jeebus
