20-20 vision

Paul Millsap left Louisiana Tech a year early in part because he figured to be a late first-round pick. Instead, Millsap was a late second-round pick on Wednesday.

Obviously no one can make decisions over again, but Millsap probably would have been better served returing to school for his senior season. Second-round contracts aren't guaranteed the way they are in the first round.

His decision not only hurt his pro career, but hurts the Tech team he has led for the last three seasons.

And just Tech's luck, the player Millsap battled for WAC Player of the Year honors - Nevada's Nick Fazekas - withdrew his name from the draft is returning to Nevada. Fazekas appears to have made the smarter decision.
