    UPDATE: Hoiberg says Diante Garrett will have options

    Spoke with Fred Hoiberg minutes after the draft. Here's a recap of our conversation.

    Diante Garrett goes undrafted but will have plenty of options | Cyclone Fanatic

    Re: Diante Garrett to have options

    Well that's good. Do you think that maybe late in the draft, teams just pass on guys they know have a chance because they are set at the position and don't want to waste the prospects time?


    It's all snark from here on out

    Diante will likely sign somewhere and go to a mini-camp until the lockout starts on July 1. I'll know more about the situation tomorrow.

    Re: Diante Garrett to have options

    Guaranteed money in what way?

    He gets the NBA minimum even if he doesn't make the team?

    And how are they doing such when they don't even know what the pay scale will be?

    Good to know this. Long night of listening to horrible ESPN announcers hoping to see DG picked though.

    IMO this is much much much better than getting selected at the end of the second round. It lets DG decide which team he has the best chance of making instead of being bound to someone.

    CW, do you think he'll get offers from other places as well?

    And to DG - Congrats buddy! You may not have been drafted, but it's all for the best. You'll catch on somewhere and I can't wait to see you make in the NBA.

    Re: Diante Garrett to have options

    Looks like the NBA owners will try to cut NBA salaries 10-20% so they were not too enthused to take more than one round of picks.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Not sure of the specifics. I will know more tomorrow.

    I'm sure he'll have options. My money says he'll end up overseas for a year. That was likely going to be the case even if his name would have been called tonight.

    I hope he lands in Phoenix. Steve Nash would be a great teacher.
    And Phoenix worked out pretty well for another ex-Cyclone named Jeff Hornacek.

    Re: Diante Garrett to have options

    DG not getting drafted in the last 10 picks is bad for ISU recruiting (or I guess just not good, we were kind of playing with house money), but it is probably good for DG in the long run.

    Re: Diante Garrett to have options

    This will get taken the wrong way, but I honestly think he should go to Europe, and not worry about the NBA for now.
