No Love For Ducks in NBA Draft

After one injury filled season with the Oregon Ducks 7ft 2 in. Bol Bol is heading to Denver.  Bol entered the NBA draft and was expected to go high on the list, but the freshman’s work ethic came into question and that coupled with a foot injury early in the season left him sitting until the final round of the 2 day draft.  Bol was picked by the Miami Heat 44th overall and was immediately traded to the Denver Nuggets.  The register Guard also reported that freshman Louis King and sophomore Kenny Wooten who both left school early for the NBA were not drafted and will have to secure a free agent contract.
