Report: Texas' Joseph entering draft, too

Texas freshman Cory Joseph is joining teammate Tristan Thompson and entering the NBA Draft, according to a report in the Toronto Sun.

Joseph and Thompson are both from Canada.

Though Thompson will hire an agent, the paper reported Joseph has no immediate plans to do so. Joseph averaged 10.4 points and 3.0 assists per game last season. The 6-foot-3 guard is likely to be selected in the second round if he remains in the draft.

The deadline for underclassmen to enter the draft is Sunday.

Underclassmen who maintain their amateur status have until May 8 to withdraw.

The season is here

The season starts today with a slate of four games.

They are:
  • Rhode Island at No. 5 Pittsburgh
  • UC Irvine at No. 13 Illinois
  • Navy at Texas
  • Seattle at Maryland
What I'm most looking forward to is the debut of Canadians Cory Joseph and Tristan Thompson at Texas. Thompson has always been rated higher than his summer teammate, but I've forever liked Joseph better. Either way, the reality is that UT needs both to be productive. If they are, the Longhorns could challenge for the Big 12 title despite the loss of Damian James and Avery Bradley.

One of Muss's favorites visiting Texas (like me)

AUSTIN, Texas -- I'm on football duty this weekend.

I've got Texas Tech at Texas -- otherwise, known as a game so good Cory Joseph decided to visit.

"He's phenomenal," said former NBA coach Eric Musselman. "He's mature beyond his age and very, very confident."

Musselman familiarized himself with many of the elite Class of 2010 prospects last month at the adidas Nations event, and it should be noted that when I asked for the player who most impressed he immediately started talking about Joseph -- a 6-foot-3 point guard who is currently on campus here visiting Texas. Joseph averaged 24.8 points and 5.6 assists at adidas Nations, where he caught the attention of Musselman and everybody else, really. MaxPreps.com ranks the Canadian as the 22nd-best prospect in the Class of 2010.

"He just has total control of the ball, and he's very composed," Musselman said. "He's confident yet not cocky."

As for Musselman, he worked the adidas Nations event for the same reason that he helps with a local high school team and both of his sons' youth squads, because he's a coach who still enjoys coaching and doesn't want to get too far away from his profession. Musselman hasn't coached in an official capacity since the 2006-07 season with Sacramento, when a year with Ron Artest resulted in a 33-49 record. But the recently married Bay Area resident is still in the gym all the time, and next week he'll head to Russia to conduct a coaching clinic.

"I don't want to get rusty," Musselman said. "Just like a hitter needs reps in a batting cage, a coach needs reps, too."
