Nobody knows – Jamont Gordon
STARKVILLE — For Jamont Gordon, the predictions about how this most important night of his life will go run the gamut.
Some say the Mississippi State junior guard could be a first-round pick in tonight’s NBA draft. Some say he’ll be an early second-round guy.
Some say he won’t be drafted at all.
The Gordon camp is OK with the first two, obviously. But it has a hard time buying the latter.
“We feel pretty confident that enough teams have interest in him that he’ll be drafted,” said Charles Grantham, who’s acting as his agent.
But there are enough question marks heading into tonight that Gordon will no doubt watch with some bit of nervousness at his home in Nashville. His former Mississippi State teammate, Charles Rhodes, will watch the draft back home in Jackson, hopeful he’ll get a call later in the night.
