Re: Pressey to the NBA...
The staff is preparing as if Phil Pressey will leave, because there's a possibility he will. It's a CYA manuever to ensure they don't get caught with their asses out if he does jump.
Considering the Pressey family's connections in the NBA, I can't see any way Phil makes the wrong decision.
As far as his prospects... he is a freak athlete at that size. He has the speed/quickness/handles you usually see from tiny guards, but he also is freakishly strong and athletic at that size.
He needs to improve as a shooter to succeed long-term in the NBA, but if he does that, Pressey can be every bit as successful in the NBA as guys like Nate Robinson, Earl Boykins, Mugsey Bogues, Avery Johnson, etc.
Smith is Cassel. Cassel is Grbac. Grbac is Bono. Smith is a bum! We traded for a bum!
