Report: South Dakota State’s Nate Wolters’ NBA Draft Stock Has Fallen [POLL]
The play of South Dakota State guard Nate Wolters has been widely praised and rewarded this season, with numerous national honors and accolades.
But an off game for the senior in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament, has some basketball experts questioning just how high Wolters will go in June’s NBA Draft.
In that game against Michigan, March 21st, Wolters was held to just 10 points be the Wolverines, on 3-of-14 shooting, including 0 for 5 from three-point range.
In this week’s Sports Illustrated, Chris Mannix writes that Wolters performance against Michigan left NBA scouts disappointed. He quoted one ‘Western Executive’ as saying:
I wanted to see how he handled quickness and long defenders, and he got destroyed. In the NBA that is all he is going to see.
Mannix says Wolters’ draft stock is down after the Michigan game, and now projects SDSU’s all-time leading scorer to go in the early second round.
