Cincinnati’s Kilpatrick primed for breakout season

first_imgNEW YORK — Mick Cronin knows Sean Kilpatrick will be playing in the NBA one day.“I think he’s been on some NBA Draft sites on the internet” Cronin said. “I’m not smart enough to find those. He’s like a son to me, but I think that day will come.”When it does, Cincinnati will have a massive void to fill.But first, Kilpatrick is looking to lead Cincinnati to a Big East championship after the team went to the Sweet 16 last season. With the losses of big man Yancy Gates and slasher Dion Dixon, the Bearcats will need even more production from Kilpatrick this season.The 6-foot-4 Kilpatrick led Cincinnati with 14.3 points per game last year and finished first in the Big East with 92 3-pointers. Now a member of the Preseason All-Big East First Team, he has transformed into the go-to playmaker for the Bearcats. Cronin said Kilpatrick’s relentless pursuit of excellence and his genuine passion for the game of basketball set him apart from other talented players.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Getting kids to play hard is much more difficult than fans would think,” Cronin said. “It’s difficult to find guys that compete at that level every play, every day, but that’s in his DNA. That’s who he is. He loves basketball.”Kilpatrick’s tenacity helped mold Cincinnati into a defensive-minded, scrappy team last season, as the Bearcats held 29 of their 37 opponents to fewer than 70 points. One of those games came in the Big East tournament against Syracuse, when Kilpatrick ate the Orange alive, finishing with 18 points on six 3s.Cronin said Kilpatrick has always been a knockdown shooter, but he has worked on other elements of his game to become a more complete player.For Cronin, Kilpatrick’s future will likely depend on his production this season.“Hopefully going pro is an option for him and that he has that kind of season,” Cronin said. “I don’t want to lose him, but I’m all for him having a great year.” Comments Published on October 18, 2012 at 2:07 am Contact Trevor: [email protected] | @TrevorHass Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

NBA trade rumors: Celtics refused to include Jayson Tatum in Anthony Davis offer

first_img Why the Pelicans just became one of the most exciting NBA teams Tatum said in January when there was speculation he could be traded for Davis: “Yeah, I’d trade me too for Anthony Davis.”The Celtics and Lakers were believed to be the front-runners in acquiring Davis. But the Boston Globe reported Friday that the Celtics were hesitant to extend an offer with their best assets because of uncertainty surrounding Davis’s long-term future in Boston. It had been speculated that if Davis went to Boston, he would play out the final season of his contract and then opt to become a free agent.

He was concerned about the team’s lack of “loyalty” because of former star Isaiah Thomas.”They can trade for him, but it’ll be for one year,” Davis’ agent, Rich Paul, told Sports Illustrated earlier this week. “I mean: If the Celtics traded for Anthony Davis, we would go there and we would abide by our contractual (obligations) and we would go into free agency in 2020. I’ve stated that to them. But in the event that he decides to walk away and you give away assets? Don’t blame Rich Paul.”Davis, who averaged 25.9 points and 12 rebounds in 56 games during the regular season, led the Pelicans to a 33-49 record. New Orleans missed the playoffs for the third time in four seasons. After Anthony Davis was traded from the Pelicans to the Lakers as part of a blockbuster deal, more details about New Orleans’ negotiations with the Celtics have emerged. According to The New York Times, one reason Los Angeles landed the big man was because the Celtics refused to make Jayson Tatum available in Boston’s offer.  LeBron James reacts to Anthony Davis trade: ‘Just the beginning’ The six-time All-Star told the Pelicans in late January that he didn’t plan to re-sign with the franchise when he could opt out of his contract after 2019-20, and he asked New Orleans to move him.
