If Greivis Vasquez was hoping to go in the first round of the NBA draft, this might be good news. According to Jeff Barker of the Baltimore Sun, the NBA has invited Vasquez to attend the NBA Draft in person in New York City.
Former Maryland guard Greivis Vasquez has been invited to attend the NBA draft at Madison Square Garden in New York.
His agent, Herb Rudoy, said today that Vasquez won't be sitting with John Wall, Evan Turner and the other projected lottery picks. Those guys are draft royalty. They sit at tables in the equivalent of an orchestra pit before the stands begin.
Unless he changes his mind about attending, Vasquez will sit with the second wave of players in the first few rows of stands.
Obviously, this invitation doesn't really mean anything tangible, but it certainly would be embarrassing for the NBA to invite someone who won't be drafted. From a karma standpoint, this can only been a good thing.
