NBA Draft Analysis
Roy Williams has had to take a different tack when it comes to recruiting. He's still bringing in McDonald's All-Americans but he's no longer getting the guys whom NBA scouts have been salivating over since high school. This year's team is the perfect example.
There's a reason there's less excitement about the draft in NBA front offices than there has been in some time and it's tied directly to parity. There aren't any great big men out there and the returns on this year's lottery don'tt project to be nearly as high as they were a year ago.
At this point, NBA people would probably prefer if Cheikh Diallo and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk go back to school, but a weak draft means they might still be able to secure first-round contracts worth millions of dollars without ever getting much playing time at Kansas.
