Kolek and Oso both drafted by Portland but traded away.

We were on the verge of greatness.  We were this close.

So happy for Oso. Really excited to see him at the next level. It's not gonna be easy, but he's got the grind and work ethic to succeed.

Vecenie and Hollinger on the Suns drafting Oso:

Oso Ighodaro was one of my favorite players to watch in college basketball over the last two years. His blend of ingenious playmaking and pristine synergy with Tyler Kolek in ball screens was a sight to behold. He was constantly communicating with his teammates and helping them get into the right spots. He’s an incredible passer from all areas of the court, and I’m not sure I saw someone as dynamic in screens, re-screens, handoffs and all the little ways big men help their guards get loose on the perimeter. He also moves his feet well and was useful on defense. Yet, I just couldn’t quite get there for his NBA projection because of his lack of size and strength. Bigs in the NBA are physical. They move big players around like it’s nothing. Additionally, the players in Ighodaro’s archetype — interior scorer and passer — that tend to work (think Jokić, Sabonis, even Nikola Vučević) tend to be of the much more physical, strong types as opposed to the finesse types. I ended up with a second-round grade and see him on the borderline of being worth a guaranteed contract or a two-way contract.

Hollinger’s analysis: Ighodaro was one of my favorite sleepers in this draft, and he’s an Arizona native who gets to come home and join the Suns. With his ability to pass from the elbows and switch onto the perimeter defensively, I think he is capable of playing backup five minutes immediately, although he doesn’t do some of the “traditional” big things (rebound, block shots) at a super high level.

Once I saw Oso show up in New York I stopped worrying.  Oso ( and Tyler) both signed with great agents who are plugged in.   They knew where their floor was in this draft.  Neither would have gone to NYC if being drafted wasn’t guaranteed.

What other school allows you to watch two players develop at a truly amazing rate for multiple years, who both have engaging personalities, under a complete class-act coach, while winning the BEAST, BEAST tourney, and a SW16.  Then we got to watch them get what they deserve...drafted into the NBA.  Was a fun ride to watch those two...we're so fortunate from a CBB standpoint for the resurgence of MU Bball.  They had a lot to do with it.

Oso got the Bronny James contract, and Kolek got a slightly bigger deal. They are all structured the same, though: four years, with the last year being a team option.

The Suns must like Oso not to put him on a 2-way.
