Dispelling a Waiters myth for the time being
It truly is the time of disinformation – or maybe misinformation -- around the NBA and the draft right now.
There was all kinds of buzz here in Chicago that Syracuse guard Dion Waiters had a “promise” from some team near the top of the draft and that’s why he’s pulled out of the pre-draft combine.
Of course, it set the chattering masses alight because Waiters can score, the Raptors need a scorer and, well, why wouldn’t it make sense.
And it still might, except for the fact there’s no “promise” from Toronto; quite the contrary, actually.
Here’s Bryan Colangelo, not 15 minutes ago:
"His agent has told me there's a promise to another team. Regardless, if he's on the board he's in our mix."
So, on we go, more days of speculation ahead of us but you might want to hold off on getting the Waiters replica jerseys made at the moment.
Okay, off to the media session with these kids in a bit, will get whatever news I can.
