HoopsHype Peyton Siva rumors

So let Gigi Datome take some of it. And Tony Mitchell. And Peyton Siva, who already has been playing increased minutes at point guard and saw extensive playing time in two wins before the debacle here. Jennings said it's time for more. "I think, at this point, it's important that we play the young guys," he said after missing his first 10 field-goal attempts. "Let the young guys get some time, let them see what it is to play 35 minutes a night in the NBA." Booth Newspapers

Minutes later, he followed with a photo of Siva, flashing the "L" and holding red shoes. But his shirt was blue, a piece of 2012 national championship gear from the season Siva's U of L team fell to UK in the Final Four. That was a year after Harrellson wrapped up his career with the Wildcats. Still, it's obvious both former players care quite a bit about their schools. "Yea I lost a bet," Siva said. "Gotta man up.. Always throwing my L's up." Louisville Courier-Journal

Dime: Montrezl Harrell and Russ Smith are both projected to go in the first round of the NBA Draft this year. What do you expect in the future from your two former teammates? Peyton Siva: I definitely think they’ll both make it. As per account of whoever I think they both have a legitimate shot to make it the NBA and have a great career. They are both great players and they’re proven winners. They are back-to-back champions in their conference and they both won a National Championship. I think they will have great careers wherever they end up, whatever round they end up going. Dime

Dime: If you were an NBA general manager, who would you pick in this year’s draft? Who is most NBA-ready? PS: The one guy most NBA ready: I got to go with my guy Russ Smith. I’m Louisville biased man, he’s my guy [laughs]. But also I like Jabari Parker. He’s a really solid player; he’s a really good player. Just watching a couple of their games, he’s kind of a do-it-all kind of player. Scorer, rebounder, I think he’s a real good talent. Dime

Besides Robbie Hummel, Juvecaserta, as Gazzetta di Caserta reports, is also interested in Peyton Siva. The dominican point-guard was drafted by Detroit Pistons in the second round and could be the big name for the roster. About forwards the team would like to bring Jumaine Jones back in Caserta (Tony Gaffney seems too difficult to reach) Sportando

The Pistons have until Sept. 6 to tender an offer for next season to No. 56 overall draft pick Peyton Siva and Dumars said he has had discussions with the player's agent about all the possibilities, including Siva agreeing to play overseas in 2013-14 so the Pistons could retain his rights. "We liked him a lot," in summer league, Dumars said of Siva. "He had a great showing and he's someone that we have a great interest in either keeping or retaining his rights." Booth Newspapers

The world was introduced to Peyton Siva Sr., aka “Big Siva,” by the CBS cameras during the NCAA Final Four in Atlanta, when Siva’s Louisville Cardinals defeated Michigan for the national title. Viewers saw an energetic, passionate and likable parent supporting his child in the most vocal and visceral manner possible — wearing a spray-painted shirt with injured guard Kevin Ware’s No. 5 on it, being animated after every big play. It didn’t show the gradual steps their relationship has taken through the years, where the son had to teach the father, helping pull him from the depths of pain and self-destruction of alcohol and drug abuse. Whatever his father did, he jumped into it full force, and those traits carried through the Siva household. Siva’s older brother and sister spent time in jail for crimes related to drugs, alcohol abuse or shoplifting. Detroit News

Siva was often around to see it in its rawest form, and instead of believing he’d follow a similar path, he made a conscious decision very early in adolescence to take a different one. “Honestly, I learned from other mistakes,” Siva said. “Once I seen what alcohol and drugs did to my dad and brother, I told myself I’d never do those types of things.” Detroit News
