Mississippi State Point Guard Dee Bost Signs with Max Ergul
Utah Jazz forward Enes Kanter is not yet 20-years-old, but he is making over $4 million this year as a rookie. NBPA agent Max Ergul represents the #3 overall pick from the 2011 NBA Draft. He also recently picked up another player who may also soon be playing in the NBA – Dee Bost – albeit not close to the rookie salary of the aforementioned Kanter.
Dee Bost is quite the interesting story. The guard from Mississippi State declared for the NBA Draft after his Sophomore year. The NCAA slapped him with a nine game suspension after violating the early entry requirements. He also missed games throughout his collegiate career based on academic issues. However, he showed promise in his Senior season, averaging 15.8 points per game.
DraftExpress.com currently lists Bost as the site’s 31st best Senior available and does not project him to be drafted. NBADraft.net has Bost being one of the last picks of the 2012 NBA Draft, at #57 overall.
