Niels Giffey Thinking About NBA ... Kevin Ollie, too?
Giffey joins Garry Harris (Michigan State), Glenn Robinson III (Michigan), Semaj Christon (Xavier), Jake Odum (Indiana State), Trevor Releford (Alabama), Eric Atkins (Notre Dame) and Luke Hancock (Louisville) as players committed to working out at SVSP.
Meanwhile, Kevin Ollie's eyes could be shifted towards the NBA even more over the next couple of days. A source told me for a story I wrote this morning that an NBA team that has already expressed preliminary interest in Ollie will likely soon "come hard" at Ollie over the next couple of days. The source wouldn't name the team but noted that it wasn't any of the "obvious teams" -- the Lakers, Warriors or Knicks. A week earlier, I was told it wasn't Oklahoma City or Detroit (yet).
Then, this afternoon, Cleveland fired head coach Mike Brown.
The plot thickens ...
