Local players waited, but never got the call

By Mario Aguirre

Inquirer Staff Writer

In the NBA draft's two rounds Thursday night, no area players were selected through the 60 picks.

Among local players who were projected to be taken late in the draft were Villanova guard Scottie Reynolds and Duke University center Brian Zoubek (Haddonfield Memorial High grad) but neither got a call.

Undrafted players still have a chance to land on an NBA roster as free agents in summer leagues, such as ones held in Las Vegas and Orlando, Fla.

Reynolds finished his collegiate career as the school's second all-time leading scorer. A 6-foot-2 dual guard, Reynolds was a consensus first-team all-America in 2009-10 and a first-team all-Big East selection. He averaged 18.2 points his senior year.

Slowed by injuries and limited playing time, Zoubek emerged as a critical role player for Duke during its national championship title run. He was hampered by foot problems his sophomore and juniors years, but went through a resurgence midway through his senior season when he became a starter.

The 7-1 center averaged 5.6 points and 7.7 rebounds in almost 19 minutes his final year.

Temple University guard Ryan Brooks (Lower Merion High), Rider University's Ryan Thompson (Lenape High) and Villanova's Reggie Redding (St. Joseph's Prep) also remained undrafted.

Brooks, a 6-4 senior, averaged 14.3 points his final year, and was named to the second team all-Atlantic Ten Conference.

Thompson, a 6-6 guard, led Rider in scoring and assists the last two seasons. He averaged 17.2 points, five rebounds and 2.8 assists his senior season.

Redding, who became a second-team all-Philadelphia Big Five selection, averaged 7.3 points and 4.7 rebounds in 23 games his senior season.

Zoubek will be a pretty good nba center in my opinion, who takes a chance on him?

I would love for the Cavs to take a shot on him. Right now we have Andy and......no one else. Z and Shaq are FA, and Z is not worth having at this point. Shaq can still contribute around 20 min a game. So, I feel Zoubeck would fill a need and we need more of a defensive C in my mind anyway.

And if they could at least sign him it wouldn't make me feel like the draft was a complete fail for them after saying they are looking at trading in and then end up with no picks.

Sherron Collins, Jon Scheyer, Manny Harris, Charles Garcia, & Tyren "Time" Johnson.

Zoubek is a big stiff who has underachieved his entire career. He didn't deserve to get drafted, and he still doesn't. He might get a few NBA call-ups but hes a NBDL guy at best.

I dont know. He had to have had some bad workouts, its hard to see a guy who everybody thought was going in Round 2 to completely go undrafted.

He's not that good. He's an extremely streaky shooter. Maybe he'll make a roster or get a 10-day at some point when someone has an injury.

06-25-2010, 12:40 PM
Easy, hes not that good...He is just an OK shooter, and doesnt really play defense all that well...At the very best he could become an average 9th or 10th guy

He'll most likely end up in Europe after getting cut by an NBA team in the Summer League

This.

Scottie is cut out for Europe, specifically Greece where he can light some teams up when he gets hot. I dont think he can stick in the NBA unless he evolves into a good spot shooter and defender.

He's under 6 feet,and doesn't have point guard skills.
He's a scorer,but not a great shooter.
Not a great athlete,like a Nate Robinson.
Not an NBA player unfortunately.

Agree.

Both are the types of players that could legitimately contribute on an NBA bench at some point.

Also, I don't know how Rautins gets drafted, but Scheyer doesn't. :shrug:

That was 4 years ago. He wasn't even projected to get drafted during the season.

Had he come out as a Freshman when he still had "upside" he would've gone in Round 1.

Rautins is the better spot shooter. Scheyer is a pumpfake shooter.

to whoever said why wasnt Scottie Reynolds drafted. theyve been talking about it all year. its one of the few times in history where a top 3 college player would not be drafted. He just has too many holes in his game, the biggest is he can only go to one side.

Villanova was highly overrated the past two years after years of being underrated. Scottie can only go to one side, does not to great under pressure and soemtimes doesnt make the right decision or the decision fast enough.

He was a McDonalds all american, Put up good stats while Willie Warren flopped like pancakes, and he left after his freshman year and didnt get drafted but willie did?

Jay Bilas was exploiting so many flaws on willie warren, and im sure Blake Griffin had something to do with him gettin drafted by the clippers in the 50's

Tommy Mason Griffin went undrafted because he wasn't ready for the NBA. Being a McDonalds All American doesn't always have to do with being NBA ready. TMG was projected to be a 3-4 year college player but still has a whole lot to improve on. I hopped on the Oklahoma bandwagon this season thinking they really reloaded and Willie Warren would be great for them.

TMG got gassed up over some big games he had during the season and truly believed he was now on the Draft radar. NBA scouts weren't paying attention to OU as their team fell apart during the season. TMG has to take the NBDL route to the NBA, but I gotta think he expected it.

His handle is right behind Wall at the PG position though.

Warriors could've gotten Samhan or maybe Randle if they hadn't traded their 2nd round.

How does a guy like Ryan Reid get drafted and Zoubek doesn't? What are these GM's looking at... Zoubek dominated him everytime they played FSU. He is a legit 7 footer whose career did a complete 360 when he made his first start of the year against Maryland where he had 16 pts 16 rebs.... since then he has been a complete different person/player and absolutely dominated the offensive glass. If his transformation doesn't take place Duke most likely fizzles out in the second or third round. It's a funny thing had he done this his freshmen or sophmore year he would have been taken in the first round due to his "upside"... well the fact of the matter is Zoubek was injured his entire first three years.. and was finally healthy and made the most of it. He has terrific hands... positions himself well for rebounds... developed a hook shot.


Scottie Reynolds on the other hand is in the exact opposite situation as Zoubek. He is a player who peaked early in his career who has given the GM's more time to poke holes at his game. The fact of the matter is he is an undersized guard who has little to no athleticism.... shoots to often...... a very streaky shooter and is undersized for the 2 guard spot and is definitely not a pg.

Jerome Dyson. If he was on the 2008-09 Uconn team that went to the Final 4, at full health, he would have been the top player on the court for UCONN, and would have been a lottery pick with Thabeet.

Its a similar situation to LSU stars. Glen Davis was going to be a lottery pick, along with teammate Tyrus Thomas. Thomas went to the draft, Davis stayed back. Glen got injured, ended up being a 2nd rounder to Seattle (shipped to Boston).

BIG BABY!!

Zoubeck, Chism, Tweety Carter, Ben Uzoh will be on the Nets summer league roster along with Twill and Favors. Should be a fun Orlando Summer League.
