Former Siena star Edwin Ubiles'
name has been thrown around regarding Thursday's NBA Draft.
While I haven't seen his name in really any mock drafts (in fairness, most mocks are just first round and Ubiles is projected as a second rounder if anything).
I did see his name on this mock draft
by NBAdraftdepot.com. Ubiles is listed at No. 53, going to the Houston Rockets.
Of course, Ubiles helped Siena win three consecutive MAAC titles and appeared in five NCAA Tournament games.
Last summer, Ubiles particpated in both skills academies hosted by LeBron James
and Paul Pierce
Ubiles' former Siena teammate Kenny Hasbrouck
wasn't drafted, but has caught on with the Miami Heat and was with the team during the 2010 NBA playoffs.
If Ubiles doesn't get drafted, he stands a good shot of hooking on somewhere like Hasbrouck did after playing in the NBDL.
