He said this about the tournament in another SI interview: “It’s rough. When it finally set in that it just wasn’t going to happen, no matter what, it hurt. As a competitor you always know that you, at least, have a chance. That was really the whole reason I wanted to go to Duke was to get that national championship.”
It’s really pointless to speculate even sometimes on draft night, but currently NBADraft.net has him projected as going to San Antonio in the second round.
That’s too low for us - he brings a lot to the floor - but as we’ve said before, playing for a stable franchise is better than simply being a high pick.
He’d be a great pick for San Antonio; Gregg Popovich would love the energy he brings to defense, not to mention his unselfishness.
