At last, an underclassman point guard has decided to return to school instead of declare for this June’s NBA Draft. That means the mathematical odds of Jeremy Lin getting drafted have not dropped, for once.
6′3″ junior Malcolm Lee is heading back to UCLA. Good for him. From a pure basketball skills standpoint, he needs it. He also needs to bulk up.
He’s like a smaller, poor man’s version of Michigan’s Manny Harris.
From an NBA business perspective, I don’t think he would’ve been drafted if he declared this year. At this point he’s not physical enough to handle the NBA on defense, especially in comparison to the other point guards that are available.
