Have you seen Stuckey play before? I keep hearing Dwyane Wade/Ben Gordon/Luther Head/any other player 6'3" that is a shooting guard but gets called a combo guard cause they aren't over 6'5" comparisons.
Just wanted to hear what some people really think.
Never seen him play. I have noticed that he's been on draft boards or his name has at least been out there for a little while now. Must be at least something there that is interesting to scouts.
LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kansas sophomore standout Brandon Rush says he plans to enter the NBA Draft.
"I'm ready to take the next step," Rush told The Kansas City Star for a story Friday. "I'm ready to make a better life for me and my family."
The 6-6 guard, who also tested the NBA waters out of high school before signing with Kansas, told The Star he will not immediately sign with an agent, which leaves the door open to play another year in college.
"I could hire an agent, but if I do, it will be much later in the process," Rush said. "Right now I want to keep my options open. I'm going into it with a free mind. I don't have anything to lose. I can come back to school or I can stay (in the draft). It's a plus-plus either way."
The university's athletic department could not confirm the announcement Friday morning but expected to issue a statement later in the day.
Rush told The Star he planned to fax his official draft entry form to the NBA Headquarters before heading to Dallas for a weekend vacation.
Rush averaged 13.8 points and 5.6 rebounds last season and was the only Jayhawk to start all 38 games. He also shot 43% from three point range in leading Kansas to a 33-5 record, the Big 12 regular and postseason championships, and a trip to the round of eight.
Rush joins Julian Wright as the second Kansas player to leave school since last season to enter the NBA Draft.
Rush has until June 18 to withdraw and return to school if he is not satisfied with his draft position and does not hire an agent. The NBA draft is June 28.
Other than Self and former summer-league coach John Walker, Rush said he didn't ask for anyone's advice.
Rush is the younger brother of JaRon and Kareem Rush.
NBA analysts predict Rush will be selected from No. 15 to No. 35 in this year's draft.
Wow, from the title of this post, I thought it was going to be about Brandon Wright. I guess it morphed into a generic draft topic.
Here's the deal, would anyone in their right mind pass up at least $5M to play for 1 year or go back to college and make 0, zip, zilch?
I know this will probably never happen, but instead of a NBA D-League, why won't the NBA and NCAA team up and allow NBA teams to purchase the rights to college players allowing them to still play in college. I mean come on, the ONLY reason guys leave early is because of the $$$. I don't think you could find 1 guy who says he likes playing pro more than college. Who would? The excitement and intensity level of college is 10 times what the NBA is.
Wright for example, he could be drafted by whomever, paid a signing bonus and play in college for 1 or 2 more years to get better and work on his weaknesses.
