Election day update... on former SEC players in the NBA

I'm limiting this to guys that left college last season not drafted in the 1st round.

1) Richard Hendrix- looks like he made the Golden State roster. I'm not sure how he's going to fit in with them running up and down the court, but hey... he's got $442K for the year. I assume that's his for the year. Congrats.

2) Steven Hill (Arkansas)- was one of the final cuts in Portland. I went to their 1st exhibition game at the Rose Garden and saw his ugly mug on the bench. I was shocked. He's probably one of my favorite non-Alabama players the past 5 years.

3) Sonny Weems (Arkansas)- on the Denver Nuggets roster. I never thought he was all that good, but obviously someone thought different. Like Hendrix he gets to keep $442K.

4) Shan Foster (Vanderbilt)- Drafted by the Mavericks... ended up in the Italian League.

5) Joe Crawford (Kentucky)- Drafted by the Lakers... not sure where he is now since he was waived on Oct 22nd.

6) Walter Sharpe (UAB)- I had to add him in here even though he sort of finished up at UAB. He's part of the Detroit Pistons making the league minimum (like Hendrix and Weems).
