John Petty Rumors
09 Jul 20
Where things are moving more quickly, John Petty said in a telephone interview, are in his contacts with other teams. “I’ve done 12 Zoom interviews already,” Petty said. “I don’t want to say any specific teams but I’ve gotten some great feedback. They have been impressed. We’ve talked about my elbow (a hyperextending which knocked him out of two games late late season.) It has perfectly healed, no problem. My process now is to keep working out, be patient, talk to scouts and hopefully get a great answer from them (about a potential draft position.) If that happens, I’m probably going to stay in. … I will have a decision but I’m going to be patient.”
Junior guard John Petty Jr. and sophomore guard Kira Lewis Jr. will apply for the NBA Draft, Alabama coach Nate Oats announced on Tuesday.
“They’re both going to put their name into the draft,” Oats said. “They’re going to go through workouts whenever those are — and that’s the thing, too. These early entrants with this year, I mean everything’s up in the air. I talked to a few NBA scouts. They’re talking like the NBA is gonna start back up with the regular season in July. There’s just so much uncertainty.”
