Bruin (Hoops) Bites: Kyle Moving Up.

Kyle Anderson gets good marks from the Atlanta Hawks, Westbrook and Recruiting News.

Streeter Lecka

Kyle Anderson has a slew of private team workouts scheduled in the three weeks leading up to the June 26 NBA Draft, and according to Zagsblog, generally very reliable, things went well with the Atlanta Hawks who draft at #15.  Apparently, things went well enough for the Hawks to call him back for round two.  Good luck to Kyle!

Here's the other news from this past week:

  • An annual event called Pangos All-American Camp occurred this past weekend in Long Beach. It's a sort of AAU-style series of all star games -- the first of the season on the West Coast. UCLA targets or commits at the game include Stephen Zimmerman and Lonzo Ball. Here is a review.
  • Who is the latest on the Steve Alford merry-go-round of wing targets for 2014 and 2015? Prince Ali, decommit from UConn and ranked #68 in the 2015 class by Rivals. One more thing: he's from Florida. Are we avoiding LA all together now? I wrote about the woes in wing recruiting since Jordan Adams reversed course here. Just to rub salt in the wound, Jerome Helmsley, point guard from LaVerne, who Alford apparently thinks is not good enough, picked SDSU.
  • Soldiering on with recruiting news, despite the seeming futility since scoring Kevon Looney, et. al., new offers went out to 6'6" four-star small forward Mario Kegler from Jackson, Mississippi and 6'10" four-star center from Wisconsin (yet another leaf on the Kevon Looney tree), Henry Ellenson.
  • The ageless San Antonio Spurs knocked the OKC Thunder out of the play-offs, and restarted the whisper campaign against Russell Westbrook. But its all just talk. No one is insane enough to trade Westbrook -- right?

Yep, its quiet on the college basketball front as we wait for the NBA Draft and string of announcements from recruiting targets over the summer. Check in again to Bruin Hoops Bites next Wednesday.
