    Taggart will not go in the first round, he should definitely stay another year at Memphis.

    Re: Taggart to test NBA waters

    On average, does anyone here know about how many newcomers make NBA rosters each year?? Is it about 2 per team or 60 for the entire league??

    First rounders are guaranteed contracts. Second rounders are not. I'd say about half of those chosen in the second round don't end up on NBA rosters after training camp.

    What is so ******** about testing the waters without hiring an agent? It could actually help out his game for next year if he decides to come back. I have no problem with players throwing their name in the draft without hiring an agent. Thats why that option is there.

    Re: Taggart to test NBA waters

    I don't see whats wrong with it at all. He has graduated, the team will be terrible, all the good players and coaches have left him. What does he have to stay for, might as well start making money, here or overseas...
