Big Country

Initial reaction to Utah State’s Jaycee Carroll declaring for the NBA draft is to start laughing. Sure, you are a prolific scorer Jaycee, but really. If you were NBA material within two years of finishing high school, you’d have “prepped” at a Pac 10 school.

But why wouldn’t you declare? If you don’t hire an agent and withdraw 10 days prior to the NBA draft, no harm no foul.

I’m shocked more players who won’t be drafted don’t declare. I would.

Just make sure Mars Blackmon isn’t giving you advice.

  1. This was an interesting early entry. My belief is that Carroll’s just dabbling to get his name out.

    He’s a pure scorer and an excellent long-distance shooter, but will be expected to play 1-guard in the NBA.

    He might be a 2nd rounder next year (if last year’s draft is any indication, teams will draft international players), but will probably end up in Europe.
