Hoops: Draft Notes

George Washington is actually losing two players to the draft - of course they aren't signing with agents.......... Looks like Deron Williams might go ahead of all PG's except Chris Paul......

Considering how he has handled himself in the tournament, Wake Forest’s Chris Paul will be the only guard taken higher, and some might disagree with that.

That means Williams will go ahead of North Carolina’s Raymond Felton and Rashad McCants and ahead of Louisville’s Francisco Garcia and Georgia Tech’s Jarrett Jack.

Williams is as NBA-ready as any guard in college basketball. He is thick, but quick. He will not be bullied and he can shoot it. He can manage a game with his passes and decisions.

And he leads.
