I cannot tell you how frustrating it is to watch your favorite NBA team gloss over your favorite college player not once, not twice, but three times in the exact area he was projected to be drafted. The Blazers had picks #27, #33 and #36. Weaver ends up at #38 – a perfect fit for Larry Brown, which will be about as smooth a transition from Bennett Ball as you can find in the NBA.
Weaver is now a teammate of former Gonzaga star Adam Morrison (although you have to wonder if Morrison is on the trading block, seeing as he’s the exact opposite of Larry Brown’s style). He joins a Bobcats team that is relatively young and not very deep at the guard position. I’m also excited at the prospect of watching Kyle D up on 5’5″ Earl Boykins in practice. [By the way, I’m one of the few Cougar/Husky fans on Earth that is actually a fan of Adam Morrison, and I still get upset when people call him a bust]
It should be a good fit for Kyle, and Cougar Nation wishes him all the best.
Update: was just reminded on the Cougfan forums that Tony Bennett played in Charlotte (although not for the same franchise). Awesome.
