Draft Notes: Fall, Jones, Haas

Tacko Fall had a workout with the Magic today. He will work out for the Jazz and he may schedule one with the Rockets as well, according to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel (Twitter links). The University of Central Florida center has previously worked out for the Celtics.

Fall is testing the draft waters but has until May 24 to make a final decision. The 7’6″ big man is the 92nd best prospect in the upcoming draft, according to Jonathan Givony of Draft Express.

Here’s more on upcoming draft:

  • Andrew Jones is leaning toward staying at Texas for another season, sources tell Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com (Twitter link). Givony has Jones as his 54th best prospect.
  • Isaac Haas will return to Purdue for his senior season, the university announced on its website“After going through the NBA evaluations and workouts with multiple teams, I have had many long discussions with my family and the Purdue coaching staff. We came to the decision that it’s best that I come back to Purdue and help bring Purdue to a better place than last year for my senior year,” Haas said.
  • BYU’s Eric Mika will sign an agent and remain in the draft, according to the school’s Twitter feed. Givony has Mika as 79th best prospect in the field.

    These 200M contracts are going to cripple the NBA. Baseball is handing out 200M or 300M contracts but they are over 10 years, not 5. Every player that is halfway decent somehow is a max player, doesn’t make business sense.

    Someone is giving very bad advice to some of these guys. The 92nd best prospect in a draft of 60 picks should be not leave school early. At best he will be playing in the D-League as an UDFA. If he goes back to school and has a decent year, then he will probably be rated much higher in next year’s weaker draft pool.

    I want to see the Celtics take a chance on Tacko! They have the picks to take him and let him play in the D-League or overseas. That seems to have worked out well for the Celtics and the players they took last year. He could learn so much from Al Horford, and having a 7’6 dude coming in off the bench is not a bad idea
