What I will say with 100 percent confidence is that if Phil goes early, he will get drafted. If he goes early, it will be because his father's extensive NBA connections - he's part of the establishment - indicate that he should.
I'm not saying he will for sure. There's a chance. And if he takes that chance, it will be a well-informed choice. I'm going to guess his dad probably has a better idea than you or I do about how the NBA scouts view Phil Pressey.
I don't think Pressey will go early either...but I like the fact that the Mizzou coaching staff is considering all scenarios and is being prepared for any outcome that might occur.
