Perry Jones seemed to be sliding down draft boards in recent weeks, but we all attributed that to the risks that come with taking him — he has the physical gifts to match anyone in this draft but he didn’t show them consistently on the court. There are questions about his drive, his commitment, his…

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…

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…

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…

According to Sports Illustrated’s Sam Amick, sources close to Perry Jones are saying that the Baylor freshman will return to school next season instead of declaring for the 2011 NBA Draft.

Duke’s Kyrie Irving missed most of the college season with a foot injury, came back in the NCAA Tournament and quickly established himself as the best player on the Blue Devil team again. That was good enough for scouts — he is pretty much the consensus No. 1. He’s the one guy in this draft…

No one’s really excited about the 2011 NBA Draft. It’s not a great class at its best, especially when compared to what the 2012 class of freshmen will look like, but the lockout is the real issue. Though there’s a small chance the drafted class may fall under the current rookie scale versus a revamped,…

If you had asked “Who is going No. 1 in the 2011 NBA draft?” before the college basketball season started, the consensus was North Carolina’s freshman Harrison Barnes. Except Barnes is shooting 38.2 percent this season and 29.3 percent from three. He has not lived up to the hype and is sliding down the boards…
