Pittsnogle has been awful in the Summer League so I've heard... Just a big jumpshooter (without a falling shot) with no interior skills.

Seems Rashed Anderson and Taquan Dean just shot themselves out of a training camp invite during the summer leagues. Both look like they are headed to Europe. While Corey Belser has played his way into somebodies camp(Dallas just traded Powell and Marshall to Indy, does that mean Mensah-Bensu and Belser are keepers in the big D)?

Jon Kreft can't play in the NBA. He has to go through the draft first and well..........he isn't eligible for the draft yet.

He'll probably go to junior college.

Over half of the international players wont come over, ever. The NBA needs to make a rule stating that international players who want to play in the NBA must show teams they are trying out for their overseas contract status, and a buy-out price if they are under contract overseas. If they enter the draft they must be ready to come over to the NBA that season. If they have rules on American players, then they should have the same rules on international players. They also need to make sure if they can only enter their name in the draft twice, because Tiago Splitter has entered his name for the last two years before pulling out both times. If they don't change these rules, then they should cancel the 2nd round. The way the NBA judges talent is by potential, athleticism, and size. They should base it on statistics (esp. FG%), fundamentals, and shooting. They also should look at the conferences or the leagues the players played in. Mike Gansey (biggest screw-job), Kevin Pittsnogle, and Chris Quinn played for the best conference in America and posted great stats, but they didn't get drafted. If Pittsnogle was international he would be a top 10 pick. He shoots better than anyone at that size, besides maybe Dirk and can come off screens and shoot. He also rebounds better than most international players, which isn't saying much, because he averaged around 5.5 rpg. Other players who went undrafted from big conferences are Curtis Stinson, Daniel Horton, Matt Haryasz, Eric Williams, Allan Ray, Marco Killingsworth, Erick Hicks, Rashad Anderson, Thomas Gardner,Taquan Dean, Gerry McNamara, Nick Caner-Medley, Brad Buckman, and Taj Gray. Undrafted players from smaller conferences included Justin Williams, Steven Smith, Darius Washington (left too early),Kenny Adeleke, and Jose Juan Barea. Most of these guys should have been drafted. I don't think size makes a big difference (wing-span is more important), and potential is a dirty word that rarely is fulfilled. The NBA also relies on individual workouts way too much, when they should just watch college basketball and see who performs on the biggest stage in a team game. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind international players, but I want them to be ready to contribute right away. The one's who are ready to contribute are the one's playing in the adult leagues (mostly over 21) and not the junior leagues (18 and under), and putting up good stats in the adult leagues. You can tell who is good by watching tape on certain players at the NBA draft. Most college players are ready to contribute right away. I want a baller who can ball now!

Great stats are not everything. There players that have had subpar college stats and they developed into NBA good players and scored way more points than they did in college. There are tonnes of college players that filled the stat sheet but could not make the jump to a career in the NBA.

I saw Pittsnogle drain some exciting long shots in the NCAA tournies but he cannot dribble and not a great rebounded. His defense is suspect.

I like Gansey alot. His IQ, his effort and passion but in the back of my mind I don't see him being a significant player in the NBA.

Everyone keeps talking about Allen Ray not being drafted. I am not surprised he was passed over. He is 6'2 which is small for a shooting guard and not considered good enough to handle the PG position. We will see what he can do in Boston.

justin williams and steven smith are the 2 best players undrafted IMO. Justin williams is theo ratliff 2 without the injuries and steven smith is david west 2.

Allen Ray went where i expected him to go, which was undrafted due to his inability to make big shots. He lacks "the fire in the belly" as some would say. (this is why the perfect NBA body and shot fell a little, see rudy gay). Allen ray plays defense OK, but fell apart in the tournament the last 2 years. Dont quote me on this, but im guessing his career shooting % in the tournament is below 30% and 3-pt % is below 20%. I would not want this player on my team even if he has a good release on his shot, however as an undrafted player i would give him a work out. In addition to all that, he lacks a position to play in the NBA at 6'3''. He cant play the point for obvious reasons which are his passing and ball handling which are well below average, and hes too short and inathletic to play the 2.

call me crazy, but allen ray belongs overseas, or a career signed-released player.

I have a soft spot for Justin Gray. This guy can score the ball, and he is a lights out shooter. I'm surprised he didn't get drafted, because it seemed like he was making the transition to point guard slowly but steadily in his senior year. Maybe still not a good enough point guard for the NBA, but he was doing his work on it. He wasn't that much farther off in his point guard skills than a guy like Daniel Gibson, who did get drafted, in my opinion. I'm calling that he is going to be a player like Sarunas (Jasekivicious) and go to Europe, work on becoming a point guard, then come back to be signed by the NBA and absolutely tear it up. Mark my words. LoLcano.
