Comings & Goings: James Anderson & Tommy Mason-Griffin Leaving OSU & OUPosted by rtmsf on March 22nd, 2010
We’ll try to update these nightly or as needed as they start coming fast and furious over the next month.
James Anderson – Jr, Oklahoma State – SG. Anderson, the Big 12 POY in a conference filled with all-americans, averaged 21.9 PPG and 5.8 RPG, and is a prototypical NBA shooting guard in the mold of James Harden or Marcus Thornton. He has the ability to score in volume with his shooting ability, but he is somewhat limited off the dribble and either cannot or chooses to not play defense. Anderson will hire an agent and is a lock for the first round of the draft, currently projected in the middle (#14-#20) of that round.
Tommy Mason-Griffin – Fr, Oklahoma – PG. Bad decision, thy name is Mason-Griffin. According to the Tulsa World, TMG has already left Oklahoma, packing his bags up at spring break and moving back home. It’s presently unclear whether Mason-Griffin intends on entering the NBA Draft (he is not on anybody’s draft board) or transferring to another school, but his career at OU appears to be over. There are rumblings that two other prominent Sooners, guard Willie Warren and forward Tiny Gallon, will also be elsewhere next season. Warren is expected to turn pro after a disappointing sophomore campaign, while Gallon may have his hand forced by a recent report from TMZ.com linking him to a $3,000 benefit from a financial advisor.
