Arkansas draft prospect Michael Qualls tears ACL in workouts, out for at least six months

5 Comments

He was a potential second round draft pick if there was a team willing to develop him, but now Arkansas shooting guard Michael Qualls has a much longer road to the NBA.

He has torn his ACL and it’s going to be a while before he is back on the court. From Jonathon Givony of Draft Express:

Qualls is a two-guard who was second team all SEC and averaged 15.9 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists for the Razorbacks as a junior. However, there were doubts his jump shot was really NBA level (he shot 33.3 percent from three last season). He had the physical tools to attack the rim, but again there were questions about his ability to finish at that level.

Hopefully next summer we can be talking about him getting a shot on a Summer League roster to prove he does belong in the NBA.
