Husky Men's Basketball

The latest news and analysis on Husky men's hoops.

Roy’s options narrowing?

Eight days until the NBA Draft and the intrigue continues to build.
Here’s an interesting report from draftexpress.com.
The second item says Tyrus Thomas of LSU will be taken with the No. 2 pick in the draft. As the report states, rumor is that pick could be traded, but that Thomas would be the guy taken there.
Thomas fed the rumors when he pulled out of a planned workout with Portland saying there was use no since he has been promised he would be taken before the Blazers select at No. 4.
Roy has already said he won’t work out with Toronto, which has the first pick, since the Raptors have told him they are looking for a bigger player. He also isn’t expected to work out for Atlanta, which has the No. 5 pick, for the same reason.
So that could mean that if Roy is to go in the top five picks it will either be to Charlotte — where he is expected to work out later this week — or Portland, where he worked out last week.
Or maybe he will go No. 6 to Minnesota.
As the Boston Globe reported Sunday, however, Danny Ainge doesn’t expect Roy will be available when the Celtics pick at No. 7.
Of course, anyone who has followed the draft long knows there is more misinformation divvied out this time of year than in the USSR in the 1970s.
Singler still listing Huskies
According to this report in the Portland Tribune, Oregon high school star Kyle Singler is still listing Washington as one of the five schools he is considering.
I think it still has to be considered a longshot for UW to get Singler. But he is playing for Lorenzo Romar on the U-18 team as I type this, which should only help Washington’s chances.
Hawes profiled
Speaking of the U-18 team, here’s an interesting question-and-answer session with Spencer Hawes from the official USA Basketball Web site.
We’ll forgive them for misspelling the names of two UW football legends. And not just misspelling them a little bit, but getting both the first and last names for both Napoleon Kaufman and Marques Tuiasosopo incorrect.
At least they spelled Romar right.
