Gay leaving UConn for NBA

Gay leaving UConn for NBA

Postby JSM on Mon Apr 17, 2006 5:56 am

Connecticut Post: The second domino will fall today for the UConn men's basketball team.

Sophomore Rudy Gay, a likely lottery pick, will appear at a press conference at 3 p.m. to announce his intention to enter the NBA draft, multiple sources said Sunday.

Gay, a 6-foot-9 small forward from Baltimore, will join fellow UConn undergraduate and Maryland native Josh Boone on the NBA's list of early entrants.

Unlike Boone, however, Gay will hire an agent and make his departure from Storrs definitive.

Gay, 19, was the Big East's preseason co-player of the year. While he did not end the season on such a high note, Gay was the Huskies' leading scorer and his other statistics were impressive.

An All-Big East selection, Gay averaged 15.2 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.5 blocks for the Huskies this season. He helped the team go 30-4 and reach the Elite Eight round of the NCAA Tournament.

The website nbadraft.net predicts Gay will be the fifth player chosen in the June 28 draft.

He seems like the type of player that GMs lose their job over. Tremendous talent but plays in flashes. I watched almost every Uconn game this year, and there was NO excuse for them not cutting down the nets. Their talent was unbelievable, but what they lacked was leadership. Rudy Gay has the nicest jumper Ive seen in years, and will make really athletic plays every so often, but he also dissapears for long stretches, sometimes he was a non-factor all game. The Huskies had no one to go to down the stretch, and thats what a star like Rudy Gay should be for. I think whichever team selects him Top 5 with the hopes of building around him will be extremely foolish.
