The latest mock NBA Draft from ESPN’s Chad Ford has nine SEC players getting drafted in the first round, including Mississippi State’s Arnett Moultrie to Denver at No. 20.
But there’s no sign of 6-foot-10 MSU center Renardo Sidney, a player once thought to be a possible lottery pick.
As NBC draft analyst Rob Dauster puts it, Sidney “went from arguably the best prospect in the country five or six years ago to a guy that isn’t
even considered one of the top 60 players in his draft class.”
The Renardo Sidney soap opera continued this week with the news that he was dropped by his agent, Johnny Foster.
Foster quit working with two other draft-eligible players to concentrate on Sidney, who reportedly has failed to show up for some scheduled team workouts.
The NBA draft is June 28.
