NBA Draft: Holding Pen is Empty

By David Scott - June 28, 2007

There will be no Brady Quinn of the 2007 NBA Draft as USC's Nick Young (in a stylish ivory coat, black slacks and a matching striped tie) has been freed from the table area. We're thinking of hopping the fence and sitting at the tables as long as the caterers are still circulating food and drinks.

. . . The WaMu crowd (and Knick partisans) seem pleased with the pending deal that will send Channing Frye and Steve Francis to Portland for Zach Randolph, Dan Dickau and Jerome James. Even Spike Lee was seen cheering the move.

. . . Word of the Nets being enamored with deposed Boston College shot-blocker Sean Williams turned out to be absolutely true as they grab him at No. 17. The amazing talent that Williams possesses seems to supercede the problems he had at BC under Al Skinner, which eventually led to his dismissal from the the Eagles mid-season. If Williams stays out of trouble (word in Boston was that he liked to smoke the herb a bit), the Nets get a Top 10 talent with a 10-20 pick. If he lets the NBA lifestyle overtake him, the Nets just got duped.

. . . Technical difficulties for Stuart Scott during the Nick Young interview and one of the stagehands yelled out, "Back up mic, back up mic." We were tempted to yell "Let it be." Stu Scott sounds better on mute.

. . . We're getting our bathroom break now. We leave you solely in the capable hands of Bryan Graham for a few minutes. Behave yourselves.
