The latest Mock Draft from Sport's Illustrated will not please Shamori. They have him going late in the 2ND Round (VERY few guarantee$ there) to the Jazz. If he went there he'd have a chance to develop & be backing up NBA All-Star Donavan Mitchell. As for Simon, I hope he rethinks his decision & DOESN'T sign with an agent, which would give him an opportunity to return for his Sr. year. He could work on his outside shooting from now through the entire Summer into next season as a starting guard for a new SJU coach and raise his draft stock for 2020.
IF he keeps the agent & throws his name in the draft he'll end up in the NBA Developmental League or be playing overseas. Time will tell if he has the work ethic to develop that outside shot & gets a chance to break into THE LEAGUE.

Frankly see late 2nd round as optimistic, unless someone is just looking at his highlight reel.

I just don't want them on Boston or LA. Other than that, I wish them the best.

I don't think Ponds will go earlier than mid to late second round and for good reason. Despite his ability to create his own shots and some stellar games, he also disappears a lot and not a little bit disappears, but 4 points and 2 assists disappears. He isn't exactly blessed in the I think he has the ability to play at that level but he didn't show a whole lot of consistency against lesser opponents. I see him as comparable to Hatten and although Hatten had a distinguished career overseas he didn't make it in league. I think Ponds will end up in a similar situation. There is nothing wrong with this. At 6'1"/180 he really needs to have a skill set that stands apart from other taller guards and I don't know that he has that.

Former St. John's star Shamorie Ponds is being repped by Ryan Davis of Rep 1 Sports. Has been invited to NBA Combine. Projected now as mid-to-late second rounder. Big thing for him now is improving his body ahead of workouts and combine. #sjubb

Idk. Ponds spends way too much time doing live Instagram. He should be so focused and locked in that he doesn't even have time for that crap. He needs to be on the hardwood and in the gym working on his game and his body. He needs to get away from social media.

Interesting commentary. Are we to assume he didn't take conditioning serious enough? Always notice he was never as ripped as some of the other guys on the team but that's not enough to make an assumption.
