Jim Boeheim Rumors

But a very high-profile coach is downplaying his draft stock — and it happens to be his former coach, Syracuse head man Jim Boeheim. “I don’t think he’s moved anywhere,” Boeheim told Syracuse.com. “That’s just media nonsense. That’s just the media and agents talking. Pro teams have not even had a thought about who they’re going to draft. The top, maybe the top two or three prospective picks, are thinking about the two or three guys they might take. “Everybody after that, they have no idea who they’re going to pick. You can’t tell anybody right now that they’re going to go here because they haven’t even thought about it.”
Kansas coach Bill Self became the latest on Saturday—sparked by a question about KU freshman Kelly Oubre—and it’s a tangent that just about any coach in America when teed up would go off on. Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim voiced his displeasure recently as well. “The mock drafts don’t mean anything,” Self said. “And I would tell the guy if he was here doing the mock drafts. They don’t mean anything. They’re ridiculous.”
