He is rumored to go as high as 7. The Kings had him in for a workout yesterday and apparently really liked him. Who knows it's smokescreening or not.

Good story, you gotta like that kinda toughness if your a GM looking at this kid. I think he'll be a good reserve guard in the league, maybe at some point a starter but he'll nail open shots and play well in the pick and roll. He'll struggle defensively to start, i dont think he'll ever be good on that end but he could work himself into being serviceable.

Prison isn't gonna help his NBA career

I wouldn't say that. It improved his mental toughness.

The guy is lights out from anywhere 15-23 feet from the bucket. Also drives the hoop well and is just a pure natural scorer overall. As for the prison ball? Didn't even know but hey the guy can play ball and under pressure as we all saw in March. Sure didn't win a NCAA 'ship but so what. Amazing ball players from smaller basketball schools have always come and gone with no 'ship.

Exactly. If you can take heckling from prisoners, there's not a NBA fan can say that will get to you.
