Remember Isaiah Austin?
But that’s not where his story ends.
Austin was cleared to play, he told Cassy Athena.
Will Austin reach the NBA? He faces a long road.
Though he was once viewed as a potential top-10 pick, he was projected in the second round by the time he left Baylor. The 7-foot-1 center has plenty of athleticism and a nice shooting stroke. There will be intrigue. But he never put his skills together at Baylor, too frequently deferring. And that was before he missed two years. Who knows where he is now?
But that we’re evaluating Austin’s on-court abilities at this point is a victory in its own right.
