Splitter, Brown, Shakur, Gray & Ibekwe pull out of draft

Postby JSM on Sun Jun 18, 2006 2:22 pm

Draft Express: -West coast sources informed us today that Mustafa Shakur has cancelled his remaining private workouts and will be returning to Arizona for his senior year.

-Bobby Brown has removed his name from the draft after a disappointing showing in the Orlando pre-draft camp, and will be returning to Cal State Fullerton for his senior year.

-Ekene Ibekwe will also be pulling his name out and return to Maryland for his senior year.

-Rudoy also informed us that Tiago Splitter will not keep his name in the draft, as expected, which means that he likely could not secure a commitment from a team in the “top 10 or 12” of the draft, as Rudoy said he was seeking last week. Fellow Interperformances client Rafael Hettsheimeier will also pull his name out.

He's 21. He wants a lotto promise and keeps dropping out, because he hasn't received one.

If he couldn't get one in this draft, I don't see why he thinks he can get one next year with Oden, Noah, McRoberts, Wright, Young, Durant, Rush, Horford, C. Brewer, Hanbrough, Bobby Brown, Afflalo, Yue, Reshawn Terry, Baby Davis, and a slew of other talented prospects.

I thought Splitter's best chance was last year. Everybody was really high on him, but then he dropped out. Oh well, there's always next year.

Next year, he'd be lucky to make top 20. One of the best big man drafts ever.

Aaron Gray is also dropping out.
Draft Express: -Aaron Gray’s father informed DraftExpress that his son has made the decision to return to Pitt for his senior year. Mr. Gray informed us that the consistent feedback they’ve received has been that he’s a “mid to late first rounder,” but that he was “too excited about the aura surrounding his return to Pitt for his senior year and did not want to pass that up.” Gray’s decision means that Pitt will be considered one of the favorites to win the Big East next season, and he will be viewed as one of the top big men in college basketball after Joakim Noah and Greg Oden.

Splitter is really raw. last year was his best chance because he would have gone lottery because people fell in love with his upside. Now the hype is down, he will be somewere mid-late first rounder.

Splitter sounds like a whineing [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] if you want to be in the NBA then remain in it if not then don't bring yourself in this situation everyyear freaking cry-baby.

before the whole board start calling him names...

Splitter needed a commitment from a team with a lottery pick, because he needs a contract that gives him enough money to pay for his buyout (which is not even settled... his team, Tau Ceramica, has not set a value)

so.. that´s why...

That's a bad reason. Remember Lampe? He had an expensive buy out and dropped like a weight. But finally there was a team willing to pay on his buy out. If the player is good enough, the team will help out.

the thing is... u probably know it, but teams can help out with a limited amount... But Splitter coulnd´t get a exact figure from his team. He doesn´t know how much is the buyout.. that´s why teams will not give him a promise, and that´s why he´s dropping out..

Based on his skills alone, he´s easily a top10 - lottery pick..
his contract is the problem
