I think Dean is a pure baller!! But with all the injuries in previous years and Louisville's sub par record last year....he's fighting an uphill battle. I would love to see him get picked up by a MIN, CHI, or DAL those teams could use someone like him the most. He's projected to be a 2nd round choice along with Louisville native Jeremy Kelly (6'4" PG UT-Martin) but I hope they both find homes in the NBA
I am a season ticket holder at the Syracuse Orange games, and have seen Dean play there for the past few years. Word on the street has been that he may be headed to Minnesota. I am a Minnesota Twolves fan, and have been for my whole life. What do you all think about Dean playing with KG?
I like Taquan, but he'll probably be one of those guys who is drafted in the late second round, plays in the developmental league for awhile, then signs a 10-day contract and either sticks or goes to Europe; I guess he could be considered a 'fringe' roster player. I like him though, but he's not your ideal PG- his assist to turnover ratio in college left much to be desired, and he's not an above-average penetrator. He shot 38 percent on field goals and 38 percent on threes in his senior year- that doesn't say much about his mid-range game. I saw a few dozen Louisville games, particularly when he excelled next to Francisco Garcia. Some nights he was quietly productive, and on others he was invisible.
