2012 NBA Draft

  1. A couple NCAA Sweet 16 matchups scouts will be watching

    Mar 22, 2012, 8:33 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    NBA fans — and to some degree NBA GMs — do a lot of scouting during conference tournaments and the NCAA Tournament. They like seeing players they may draft respond to pressure situations against good competition. But for scouts, it rarely changes what they have thought about a player they have watched for a couple…

  2. NBA Draft returning to New Jersey even though NBA isn’t

    There is another summer of major renovations coming to Madison Square Garden — which means the NBA Draft is on the move again. It’s returning to New Jersey and the Prudential Center. Even though the NBA isn’t. Newark Mayor Cory Booker tweeted this Monday: Thrilled 2 announce #Newark will host the #NBAdraft + Fanfest for…

  3. Report: Age limit under review, but could stay the same for 2012

    Nov 27, 2011, 10:45 AM EDT

    2011 NBA Draft

    Among the so-called “B-List Issues” being worked on before a formal vote will be held, the age limit consideration could be the one that impacts the NBA the most and certainly draws the most fan interest. And Yahoo! Sports reports that it’s such a big issue, it may not get resolved right away. The NBA…

  4. If the NBA draft is age 20 and over, who goes No. 1?

    Nov 17, 2011, 7:54 PM EDT

    Quicken Loans Carrier Classic - North Carolina v Michigan State

    It was not in the official proposal from the owners to the players (the ultimatum offer that the players not only rejected but dissolved the union over), but you can bet it will be in the next one: The owners want the draft age to go to 20. No more one-and-done with college, they want…

  5. Who are this season’s likely one-and-done college stars?

    Nov 8, 2011, 2:31 PM EDT

    2011 NBA Draft

    For all the hype about one-and-done players and the impact on the college game, there aren’t that many of them. Last season there were just three taken in the first round (Kyrie Irving, Brandon Knight and Tristan Thompson). The year before that had four, the season before that two. That’s nine in the past three…

  6. If season cancelled, LeBron trade could help Cavs in draft

    Since we’ve got nothing else NBA related to do today other than stare into the abyss and see if it stares back, let’s talk about an interesting little hypothetical. Let’s say the full NBA season gets cancelled. That leads to all sorts of questions about what order the picks would be in for the 2012…

  7. If NBA loses full season, what might next draft look like?

    Nov 4, 2011, 2:17 PM EDT

    2011 NBA Draft

    It’s one of the more interesting questions around the NBA right now: If a full NBA season is lost, what do you do about next year’s draft? It’s not really fair to go with the same order or even same lottery as last year — why should Minnesota be rewarded again for being bad two…

  8. What if Perry Jones waited until 2013 to enter the draft?

    Oct 8, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    2010 Jordan Brand Classic

    Baylor’s Perry Jones surprised everyone by pulling out of the draft last year. He was projected as a lottery pick, and had been ruled ineligible for the end of the season and postseason for improper benefits. (You know, really evil stuff like “a coach loaning his mother money so they wouldn’t lose their house,” stuff…

  9. Who is the No. 1 pick in next year’s NBA Draft?

    Aug 30, 2011, 2:02 PM EDT

    2011 NBA Draft

    One year ago today, Harrison Barnes was considered the likely No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. Come draft night, Barnes wasn’t even part of the party, staying at North Carolina for another year. Kyrie Irving was the man. So we can say that whoever is the No. 1 choice of scouts right…

  10. Report: NBA bans scouts from going to college practices

    Jul 31, 2011, 2:01 PM EDT

    NHL Season Cancelled

    In it’s efforts to keep teams from contacting players during the lockout, the NBA is finding new levels of absurdity. As our latest example, we present this: Whatever happens with the next NBA season, there will be a draft at some point. So teams are still going to be scouting college and international players. A…

  11. Jared Sullinger is getting in “top overall pick” shape

    Jul 9, 2011, 8:11 PM EDT

    Kentucky v Ohio State

    Jared Sullinger would have had a great shot at being No.1 in this year’s draft had he departed Ohio State early. Instead, he elected to return to OSU, turning down the millions and opting to enter the league after the lockout, and also after the new CBA is agreed upon which will likely lower his…

  12. You want a great NBA Draft? Wait until next year.

    Jun 24, 2011, 12:41 PM EDT

    Washington v North Carolina

    This year’s NBA draft was a trade-a-palooza of fun. We were entertained. But this wasn’t a great draft talent wise. It was a down year. No franchise cornerstone guys, and a lot of guys with high ceilings but serious questions about if they can ever get there. Next year on the other hand… The 2012…
