Josh Minott Rumors

Chris Kirschner: Hawks draft workouts for tomorrow: Malaki Branham (Ohio State) – Guard Kendall Brown (Baylor) – Guard/Forward Moussa Diabate (Michigan) – Forward Nate Laszewski (Notre Dame) – Forward Bryce McGowens (Nebraska) – Guard Josh Minott (Memphis) – Forward

Also, make sure you don’t blink. One of the most bizarre subplots of the season involves Minott’s playing time. The 6-8 freshman forward leaves scouts salivating with his length, feel and athleticism, especially on the defensive end. He is second on the team in both PER and BPM … but seventh in minutes. Of late, he hardly plays, seeing more than 15 minutes just once in the Tigers’ last nine games. Some scouts have wondered if Penny Hardaway is trying to hide him.
