Adios Amigo: Arnett Moultrie Will Not Return to El Paso

6-11 foward Arnette Moultrie has decided to keep his name in the NBA draft and not return to UTEP for his junior season. A surprising decision considering the disappointing sophomore year Moulrie had. However, most NBA execs agree of Moultrie's upside, and he is projected to go in the early to mid second round. AM Note: Thanks for posting asalom. I'm guessing some team has given him a second round promise. Well, best of luck to Arnett.

DC, sadly, didn't make the cut on this very, early look at where the prospects might shake out. Hassan Whiteside, of Marshall, is on the edge of the lottery.

But, when the article that announces you declare ha a paragraph that starts with "Arnett is coming off a disappointing sophomore season," it's not a good sign. Here's hoping Arnett comes back to El Paso and improves his draft stock for the 2011 Draft.
