Jim Nantz, the longtime play-by-play man on CBS telecasts of the NCAA Final Four, questioned the decision by several University of Kentucky players to enter this year's NBA Draft.
Speaking on Rich Eisen's radio show, Nantz said he could not understand how Andrew and Aaron Harrison and Dakari Johnson could enter the 2015 NBA Draft.
"Why are they leaving?" Nantz said of the Harrison twins. "Is it really going to behoove their future ... to get drafted in the second round, if they get drafted at all?"
Nantz cited the negligible impact Johnson made in UK's Final Four loss to Wisconsin.
Never miss a local story.
"You wouldn't even know he was on the floor," Nantz said. "He played a few minutes. Maybe blocked a shot? I'm not sure. Nothing memorable."
Johnson played eight minutes. He did not score or grab a rebound. He did not block a shot.
"How is he going to help an NBA team?" Nantz said.
Nantz said that making an NBA team can be difficult for players not drafted in the first round.
"I'd like to come back two or three years from now and pick up this conversation," Nantz told Eisen, "and see where these seven (UK players) are. Was it a good move?"
The seven UK players entering this year's draft are Willie Cauley-Stein, Karl-Anthony Towns, Trey Lyles, Devin Booker, Johnson and the Harrison brothers.
Nantz scoffed at a comparison between college basketball players turning pro and golfer Jordan Spieth's decision to leave the University of Texas in his sophomore year to turn pro. Spieth, 21, won the Masters this year.
Nantz said Spieth had proved himself by making the cut and finishing 16th in the Byron Nelson Championship in 2010.
