Exactly. I think Sindarius will definitely play in the league, someday. Maybe after his junior or senior year. He's not quite a one and done type of player, though.

Notice has no shot, sindarius is 50 50 at this point. I could see L Chat before Notice.

L Chat has about as much chance of playing in the NBA as I do.

He has 2 more years to improve, and he made a nice leap once. That said, I give him very little chance, but he's got a better shot than Notice IMO.

LChat would need to develop a reliable jumper and keep getting in better shape. If we got some tourney exposure in 2 years, and LChat was a 10 and 10 guy, you never know.

LChat's size alone gives him a better chance than Notice.

But no, right now I don't see either of them making the NBA. Thornwell is the only guy on the team I see playing in the NBA. He might be able to make the jump after his junior year, but too early to tell on that just yet.

Thats horse crap. If the kid puts in the work and improves he will get a shot. He had to good of a season on a bad team to not atleast get a few tryout and summer camp tryouts.
Tired of that train of thought, If a player shows the will, and determination, and has the skills to play they can make it.

Love what Brenton has done for our program, but he simply doesn't have the skills to make it with his size in the NBA. If it was about will, wouldn't Downey be suiting up now?

NBA scouts are looking at Notice though. He's got good size for the NBA as a combo guard. 6'3, 220+, good strength, solid defensively, good athleticism.

He just needs to keep improving.

Anyone who thinks Notice is going to be an NBA player needs to stop evaluating college basketball players

NBA scouts were scouting him, according to an ABC/ESPN announcer. So, whatever.

Whether or not he makes it is a different story, but they're atleast aware of him.

Default Re: Does Brenton Williams have a shot at the NBA?

As far as Williams...I don't want to say no, but I'm leaning that way.

For one, his size...not many 5'11 guys in the NBA anymore.
Also, not really the best ball-handler, and he isn't really a PG...he is an undersized 2G, and I think most 2G are between 6'3 and 6'6 now.

Could he be Nate Robinson type player? Maybe...if he finds the right team.

His best bet is to probably go play in Europe.

With all due respect, the NBA scouts believe that he has a chance to play in the NBA, they especially love his size. Add to that, how can you possible determine his potential as a true freshman who was thrown into the fire.

I don't believe you are a very good talent evaluator either...... I am willing to give Duane 3 more years of CBB before I slam the door on him.....

I thought we were talking about Brenton..sheesh.
Give Duane some time to grow up before you say no he can't play.

Could he play in the NBA now? Of course not...but his frame reminds me of Deron Williams and he has shown the ability to score...does he need to improve his game? Absolutely...but so does every player on the team, including Thornwell.

I don't believe you can say anybody can't play in the NBA...certain teams have certain needs that particular guys can fill. with that said, is it likely guys like Kacinas, Chatkevicius, Williams and Carrera will play in the NBA...probably not, seem more like European League players.
