Spokane hoops fans will have their eyes on the draft board this evening as Gonzaga's own Kelly Olynyk, who announced this spring that he'd forego a redshirt senior season to play pro ball, waits to hear where he'll start his NBA career. NBADraft.net currently has him as the #17 pick and headed to Atlanta in their latest mock draft.
The draft begins tonight at 4:30 pm on ESPN.
Earlier this week, Olynyk and his long, luscious Canadian hair, sat down with Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose of ESPN's Grantland.com for a "job interview." Check out the video and see how he did. Personally, I'd hire him, but we don't have much use for post moves and dunks in the newspaper business.
