    Marcus Smart, Angel Rodriguez, Nino Williams, Le'Bryan Nash

    Marcus Smart had a chance to be a top five pick — potentially the No. 1 pick — in the 2013 NBA Draft had he gone pro. As you know by now, he didn’t, which is one of the major reasons that Kansas isn’t considered a shoe-in for their 10th straight Big 12 title. At…

    Fred Hoiberg

    A couple times this summer, we’ve talked about Fred Hoiberg and the chance that his next move as a coach is to the NBA. We weren’t alone, either. Not after Brad Stevens took Boston’s head coaching job. Not when one of the topics of conversation that popped up on every radio spot that I did…

    Yesterday, I wrote about the current July evaluation period structure — three five-day recruiting periods in a 19 day span, broken up by a pair of Mondays and Tuesdays — and the fact that a number of coaches and people involved with high-level recruits believed that it wasn’t the best option.

    Jalen Lindsey

    The turnaround isn’t yet complete, but you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone that isn’t going to be raving about the job that Ed Cooley has done in his first two-plus years at Providence. For the first time since 2009, Cooley got Providence into the NIT, where the Friars advanced to the quarterfinals. That’s not necessarily…

    2013 NBA Draft

    Goodluck Okonoboh could’ve sat in a spot reserved for the elite college and international players last month, but decided against it. Turns out the Massachusetts prep star decided against hanging with his buddy Nerlens Noel at the NBA Draft. And his reasoning was justified. “I didn’t really want to go to the green room, I’m…

In the past, there have two two ten-day evaluation periods in July, with a week and a half in between them. The new rules lessen the number of days that coaches can be on the road recruiting, but they…
