HoopsHype Isaiah Canaan rumors

June 28, 2013 Updates

Isaiah Canaan has come a long way, from going through dis aster, to now realizing his dream of being drafted into the NBA. In 2005, Canaan and his family were in the path of Hurricane Katrina. As Katrina swept through Biloxi, Canaan waited out the storm in a church with his grandma. By the time he got back home, he had lost just about everything. "I lost everything but a week, probably three, four days of clothes, a couple of pairs of my shoes, and my Playstation," Canaan said. "That's all I had to my name. For awhile, close to a month, I had no house, I was living out of a church, so I pretty much lost everything. I had to restart and work my way back in." CSN Houston

"It changed me and matured me a lot faster than I would've thought," Canaan said. "It taught me not to value material things as much. I mean, as a 14-year-old, you don't pay attention to a lot of these things that are really important like life and people around you like your family. As a typical 14-year-old, I was just wanted to run around and play and be with my friends. So it really matured me and showed me the value of things that are really important besides things that are material that I probably value, like all my trophies and all my accolades that I had. So it really made me a better person. " CSN Houston

NBA Draft projections place him anywhere from the late first to the early second round. Count the Nets among those who see Isaiah Canaan, the 6-foot senior point guard from Murray State, as a first-round talent. So the Nets could take a closer look, especially because reserve point C.J. Watson is expected to opt out of his contract. “Not just because of C.J., we would look at anybody that’s obviously a first-round guy, [those] we’re going to be prepared for. Count him in that group,” said Nets Director of Player Personnel Gregg Polinsky, who has been among the officials observing predraft workouts at the Nets’ East Rutherford practice facility.
