    Dejean-Jones - Yea or Nay?

    Should Fred consider him if he decides to graduate and play elsewhere next season?

    Guard Bryce Dejean-Jones won’t return to UNLV next season | CollegeBasketballTalk

    Wouldn't that be ironic if he came to ISU and we had a successful season considering...well just considering.

    I really don't know. I was not impressed at all with the UNLV program when I saw them this year, but that doesn't mean a whole lot.

    Re: Dejean-Jones - Yea or Nay?

    It will be interesting to see what Fred ends up bringing in for JUCO's or transfers this year. A few weeks ago I would have said the obvious need was a starter-quality 2-guard. However, if 3sus can keep up his current level of play going into next year, I'm pretty comfortable with a Morris/Long backcourt. If Fred can recruit over them, that's great, but I really think he can just chase the best talent available, let the pieces fall where they will, and not worry about any obvious holes.

    Probably going to be not only one of the best 5th year transfers, but possibly THE best 2-3 that we NEED most. Fred fixes troubles. I'd take him if Fred can handle him.

    I wasn't really impressed with Marshall or NIU...

    Yeah, I feel pretty good with Naz at the two with Matt backing him up. Could be a great one/two punch if Naz can gain consistency and Matt can hit his stride. Still, another two/three would be great for depth and foul trouble.

    I don't think talent is really the issue though.

    Re: Dejean-Jones - Yea or Nay?

    Honestly, at this point, I'm ok with Fred and his staff doing whatever they do/consider and trust if they take that person, they will be an impact player. I think a lot of us forget his first product, Jake Anderson. Remember that year? Jake was such a great addition and hard worker.

    The story of Kane almost not making it here (airport issue with no ID?) is crazy to think....just hope NCAA doesn't pull some "violated a TSA screening protocol" rule and vacate our wins.

    Yes, you have to be careful, but I'll just say this; winning is the best deodorant.

    And I was a guy who was very skeptical about bringing in Royce back in the day.

    Yeah, no discernible offense there. Just a bunch of guys trying to make plays, and while there was some talent, not enough to overcome that.

    I think this is a very dangerous statement to make around superstitious people who are given to wearing clothes for multiple days to get wins.

    And Im thinking Fred with his success with transfers could recruit, but also do some "why should I let you come here?" because he shows he can make these guys better and sell-able to the NBA.

    Yes take him. He can play 1-3 positions with his skill set & size (6-5, 210lbs). He led UNLV in points and assists.

    Agreed. It would definitely be nice to have another wing for depth. I just think when Vaughn didn't commit a lot of us assumed a replacement starter at guard was a MUST HAVE, and now with the way Naz is playing down the stretch, I don't think that's necessarily true.
