Mikhail Torrance Goes Undrafted

Well, after months of seeing his name on every mock draft out there being selected mid-second round, Mikhail Torrance was not fortunate enough to be selected in tonight's NBA Draft.

Jonathan Givony of Draft Express tweeted that Torrance went undrafted due to medical red flags surrounding a heart issue. This is the first I've heard of this supposed heart condition. If anyone has additional information, please share.

The second round of the draft was the most random round I can remember with college and international role players (at best) such as Magnum Rolle (Louisiana Tech), Ryan Reid (Florida State), Jeremy Evans (Western Kentucky) and some Frenchman named Pape Sy who averaged a staggering 6 ppg in his French league last season being drafted ahead of the likes of Mikhail, Samardo Samuels (Louisville), Matt Bouldin (Gonzaga), Artisiom Parakhouski (Radford) and Jerome Randle (California).

I think they should expand to 3 rounds. Especially now with the NBDL.

Bobby: I don't know. The second round in this year's draft wasn't exactly populated by guys you felt confident will be on NBA rosters next season.
