Scoop Jardine Rumors

Scoop Jardine’s timing could not have been worse. The former Neumann-Goretti and Syracuse guard was scheduled for surgery Tuesday in Los Angeles after breaking his right foot during a workout with the Utah Jazz last Friday, his final workout scheduled before Thursday’s NBA draft. Jardine, already a long shot to be drafted, landed on the foot of Mississippi State guard Dee Bost. “I came down and it just popped,’’ Jardine told the Syracuse Post-Standard. “I tried to finish the workout and I couldn’t put any pressure on it. They shut me down.’’
For good luck, Scoop Jardine placed his belongings by Jeremy Lin’s locker in Westchester before his workout. Scoop said delivering passes to fellow Syracuse standout Carmelo Anthony would be “the easiest job in the world.” Says Melo texted him often this season as Syracuse soared atop rankings. Hoping #Knicks pick him at 48 and feels did real well in his matchup with Tu Holloway today.
Basketball agent Terrance Doyle graduated high school in 2002, which means he is likely still in his 20s. But you would not be able to tell based on the client list he is amassing. Doyle and his company Veritas Venture Group represent Orlando Magic guard Von Wafer, along with quite a few D-League and international players. They have also picked up a couple of recent student-athletes, including Syracuse’s Scoop Jardine and most recently Mississippi State Junior forward Arnett Moultrie.
