Myck Kabongo
 
Now that the draft is over and Myck was not drafted, I hope we sign him. He is a work in progress but was rated as a lottery pick before his scandal and is Canadian and would be a great 3rd point guard with the future to be a good backup.

I like him to I think he'll be a much better pro player, he is going to have to pay his dues now though, work his way into the league or he might just head to Europe

if your a European team he probably goes to the top of the list of players you need to get

Dario 06-28-2013 06:35 AM

a lot of teams grabbed some guys that didnt get drafted pretty early this morning, wondering where kabongo sits? Sign him already TO!

Would be nice to have a Canadian kid get a chance with Raps ... sign him and give him a chance to become a decent 2nd PG. He won't be ready for a long-time.

Admiral 06-28-2013 08:31 AM

as a starting PG of a high level D1 college team, you have to pick him up, i don't even care that he is Canadian, the guy actually has skills, he was arguably the star on his team
personally from what i see of him he's better than Cory Joseph and if that guy is in the NBA and in the Spurs organization who select players really well this guy should be picked up in a heartbeat
you have to at least sign him for summer league, his potential is no worse than the backup PGs we have right now

What scandal?
Didnt make sense to me y he wasnt drafted

DanH 06-28-2013 09:38 AM

He went to visit Lebron and I guess LBJ bought his plane ticket or something and that's frowned upon in the NCAA. So he was almost suspended all season but ended up playing the final 13 or something like that.

Texas' Myck Kabongo suspended for first 23 games, must repay $475

exactly. The guy was an All-American in 2011, top recruit, etc. for a reason.

Admiral 06-28-2013 11:33 AM

Whatever, his suspension and college career are long gone now and i really doubt that had any major influence on why he was passed on in the draft, only thing the suspension affected him in is that teams didn't get to see him enough in games and maybe he lost some development time
but any team that was interested would have had him work out for them anyways, they would have all seen him in person
as a 2nd round pick you're not guaranteed a contract the majority of them are picks out of potential and "luck" picks, by not getting selected his situation isn't that much different than a 2nd round pick, he's still going to get picked up by a team to go into summer league with all of the rookies and potential players, he's pretty much got the same chance as the rest of them, just show out in the summer league and he's going to get a contract as valuable as a 2nd round pick

Shabazz was suspended and he was still picked 14

Kabongo isn't that good (right now). I had him as the #10 PG in the draft. will be surprised if he gets regular minutes in his first couple seasons in the league.

Raptors taking hard look at Canadian Myck Kabongo who surprisingly went undrafted. We heard today John Lucas won't return. No coincidence

He only missed a handful of games.

Still, it's obvious that GMs see holes in Mk's game that they don't like.

which proves the point that a suspension doesn't really affect the draft as long as the teams see or know what they are getting from the player, especially when the suspension is because of getting money and stuff from someone and not something that's like criminal which really puts the player's morals into question

injuries are worse

but Irving was still a #1 pick and Len/Noel were still top 6. If you have the talent teams will pick you... unless its career threatening
