    This 7'5 senior seems enticing, at least for a second round flyer.

    Sim Bhullar? He's actually a sophomore this year. I think he'll stay in college all 4 years. He's got low mobility, and conditioning was an issue but he made massive improvements last year (going from getting winded playing 15 minutes, to playing 30+ minutes on back-to-back nights by the end of the season). There's also the question of how long his knees hold up with his sort of bulk. My guess is that he goes undrafted, and with his family still in the Toronto area, they'd probably be his first choice if they gave him a summer-league tryout.

    He red shirted his true freshman year, like his brother is doing this season, so it will be 5 years in college 4 years of ball. Dude, might have improved his conditioning, but he is nowhere near NBA fit. He makes Aaaron Gray look like Ty Lawson. Also, I always thought it would be neat if he went to Sacramento considering the owner wants to make an impact in his native India. But, if dude can't play ball, he won't even sniff summer league.

    How about last night? Zero field goals in 34 minutes against Duke.

    He was probably just tired from being so Canadian and awesome in the previous six games...and on the seventh he rested.

    So there are biblical implications, here.

    This was his first game back after an ankle injury, he was not 100% and played more of a facilitating role in that game.

    Another solid game from Keving Pangos of Gonzaga with 18 points and 4 assists. What surprises me is that not many ppl are talking about this kid i wonder why can anyone shed a light on this

    He played poorly (to his standards) for 3/4 of the game, had a stretch late when he hit 3 3's in a row, he can flat out shoot the ball.

    I don't think he gets much love because he has short arms, is just 6', not a great athlete, not a great defender.....but the kid just wins.

    So in other words he is not even good enough to get considered in the 2nd round

    Baylor is at Iowa State right now. Two ranked teams from the Big 12 Conference with a prominent Canadian presence, Kenny Chery and Brady Heslip with Baylor and Melvin Ejim and Naz Long with Iowa State.

    Ejim is the best NBA prospect out of the 4 you mentioned

    Gonzaga fell apart last NCAA tournament as well (as a 1 seed). People probably put a big share of that on him.
