Hope he flops miserably. He won't, but hope he does.

Would have been an all-time great at MU.  Unless he wins a title at Virginia he's just a guy who played at MU and Virginia.

Has Sam ever said anything about playing any pro ball? Does he keep playing after this year?

Only if the team that drafts him does not have a player who dominates the ball.

I recall there having been a letter written, maybe in that?

He's expected to be 1st Team All-ACC and some have said he'll be ACC POY.  He's going to get drafted and probably play in the NBA for 8-10 years.

It's a shooter's game, so he has a chance. But unless he's become more athletic in the last 18 months, he's going to spend a lot of time as his team's 14th/15th man. Way too small to guard fours and NBA threes will run circles around him.

I think it also depends where he measures out size wise.  He’s listed as 6’8, if he measures closer to 6’7 that’s gonna be tough. If he somehow grew or is actually closer to 6’9, Then he may have a better shot at that mid to late second round area given his shooting prowess.

If not the NBA, he’s the prototypical player to be highly paid and long lived in the Euroleague. 6’8 skilled shooters litter the top Spanish, Turkish, and Greek leagues. Far worse ways to make a living. He surely wouldn’t be grinding away in Albania or Finland for $1000 a week.

Sam might get 8-10 games in the league. And that's not sour grapes. He's just too slow laterally to guard at the pro level.

Sam's game may actually work against him when it comes to making a big salary overseas.
Most Euro leagues have roster limits on non-European players, and mid-sized shooters with limited athleticism aren't usually what they're looking for to fill those spots. They have plenty of those guys already on the continent.

Same issue as with Novak...except that Steve was a better shooter and an inch or two taller.

I could see teams wanting to pick him in the 2nd and invest some time in him in their GLeague program in search for "the next Duncan Robinson."  If that doesn't end up panning out, head to Australia, China, etc. and keep playing basketball for a comfortable living as longa as possible rather than sit behind a computer.

Dekker.  He got 200 in before he moved to Europe.  I doubt either Hauser brother gets there.

Really? Idk about Sam but Joey's just athletic enough and will get a look because of MSU in my opinion.

What about Joey Hauser's freshman year makes you think he can sniff the NBA?

Yeah, I mean I am sure Izzo is going to get more out of him than what we saw his freshman year, but I didn't see an overabundance of athleticism from Joey.

6-10 guy with a decent outside shot who can handle the ball. I'm not saying he'll be an all star or that he's unbelievably athletic but I certainly think he'll get his cup of coffee.

If Joey is completely healthy, I think he is marginally quicker than Sam.   I also think he is a little taller than Sam.   The Joey article referenced his poor defense and that he had been working to improve it.   

So, the Henry Ellenson test.    Are either Sam or Joey more skilled offensively than Henry?   Are they better defensively?    Since they aren't bigger, the answer to both questions had better be yes, if they expect to make the league.
