    I think it's a stupid move by him. He can barely make a layup.

    Doesn't look like Hurley will be heading back east and is going to stay here. He's poised to sign a 5 year contract extension as well.

    ASU adds forward Khalid Thomas for much needed help in the frontcourt.


    Arizona State men's basketball coach Bobby Hurley just missed on a couple of transfers he had hoped to land earlier this offseason but the Sun Devil boss just got a commitment from Khalid Thomas, a 6-foot-9 junior college forward out of the College of Southern Idaho.

    I assume he did not get drafted?

    He has not been drafted yet. There are 7 picks to go in the second round.

    My kid tells me he went undrafted and was scooped up by OKC. Horrible decision by Dort

    It was a bad decision for sure. I can't help but wonder if there is a reason he went undrafted we don't know about. A lot of project players were drafted.

    Dort was stupid to go pro. Needed another year. Idiot advisor

    But on the other hand, he will wind up playing overseas and still make good money.

    Dort made a name early in the season against summer decent teams in games that were widely available.

    He was exciting and good.

    So for people who do not follow the team, they would see ASU having success and it was tied completely to the exciting player they saw

    They didn't see a guy who seemed to get worse as the season went on, that didn't shine in conference play and made as many errors as good plays

    However, he declared and media people go that he was the best player on a tournament team and we liked what we saw, so he should be drafted in the 1st

    People who really watched him realized he can't shoot, while he can drive and create it is usually fine without purpose letting to more turnovers than assists and while he can play really good defense he can also get really lost on defense

    The guy has a very low basketball IQ.

    There are enough physical tools and success that a team will try and develop him. There wasn't enough where anyone should have thought he was going 1st round and going undrafted had to be as likely as not
