Millsap made right decision

If Paul Millsap returned to Louisiana Tech, would he have gone any higher than this year's draft?

The Utah Jazz selected him Wednesday night with the No. 47 pick overall, but it's doubtful he would have improved his draft status for next year.

Let's face it. Millsap has probably tapped out his potential on the college circuit. He needs to take his game to the next level and now was the time to do it.

Nevada stud Nick Fazekas and Millsap both declared their eligibility for the draft, but Fazekas is heading back to the NCAA. Yet, Fazekas, who has had a better all-around game than Millsap, is looking at an early to mid-second round pick next year. I don't think Millsap would be leapfrogging him after another year at Louisiana Tech.

He'd still be looking at a mid-to-late second round selection in 2007 too.
