Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. are probably going to declare for the draft, should Glenn Robinson III?:
“He would probably be a lottery pick. That would be based not on what necessarily he’s done this year, but his athleticism. There’s a lot of futures drafting in the NBA and it’s a weak draft. I know there are people that are going to tell Robinson that he’s a lottery pick, (which) makes it awfully hard sometimes, for some of these guys (to stay in college).”
Is Indiana’s Cody Zeller still a lottery pick?:
“I thought Zeller played pretty well down the stretch. His numbers were a little skewed by how a good of a team he had around him. That was a real talented college team. I think he’s going to go out, again, same reason I talked about Glenn Robinson (III). Could I see another year helping him if he gets stronger and all that? Certainly. I think it helped his brother (Tyler Zeller), the one that played at North Carolina. I think he’d be trading money for basketball experience because he’s going to go sit on somebody’s bench next year if he’s in the NBA, where as if he’s in college, he’ll be playing 30-35 games in packed arenas, against quality competition, and really learning more about how to play the game of basketball.”
