Not lottery but has guaranteed rookie contract as he went in rd#1. He was projected late second if at all when he declared, quite impressive to move up that much. Congrats Jared! As you went so high decision was well justified. Good luck!
Congrats to Jared although I almost wish Portland could have got him . One thing to keep in mind however is that he hasn't started playing yet . I wish him the best of luck but his decision to leave school early still has yet to be proven to be a good one . There's a big difference in being drafted and being a successful draft pick .
No , I am not bitter but I think the basketball program was on the verge of something big and Jared would have been key to that . I really don't see anyone else stepping up . I wish that he had stayed one more year for his education first and second to help keep the program on track .
