I don’t really get this move. DaJuan Summers wasn’t dominant in a Big East Conference known for dominance. He was a solid player, capable of flashes of brilliance, but luminary was certainly not his middle name.

Perhaps someone told the Baltimore native that with hard work, his size and versatility would allow him to shine in pre-Draft camps and leave scouts believing him to be the second coming of Carmelo Anthony. And maybe that’s true, but I believe that he might foresee another down year for the Hoyas next season, and it may be a case of Summers getting out and getting the money while its available.

Either that, or his agent told him there is better money now than later.

And who could blame him? The words ‘Terrence Morris’ ring a mighty bell in these parts, and I’m not disparaging the move if its truly what is best for him. It is a light draft, and there may be a place for Summers for after camps and invitationals that may position him for a guaranteed contract.

But considering the light work he put in over his cumulative career, disparaging and understanding are two different things when it comes to DaJuan Summers and his NBA prospects.
