Could Georgia Benefit From Its NBA Departures?

Georgia’s basketball team will have plenty to replace next season because of the early departures of Trey Thompkins and Travis Leslie to the NBA.

Replacing those two players could be easier for Georgia coach Mark Fox because of their departures. Say again? Fox believes that sending two players to the NBA could entice prospects to give Georgia a closer look.

“Here’s how I see it – I think it really shows our player development,” Fox said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I think you could point to Travis Leslie’s development; how he improved as a plaer while he has been with us, as well as others in our program. It has been a real plus. I think it shows that kids can realistically pursue their basketball dreams through Georgia.”

Georgia has three signees for the 2011 class. The Bulldogs’ highest-rated signee is Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who’s ranked the nation’s third-best shooting guard by Rivals.com.

Georgia is still pursuing former Tennessee signee Kevin Ware, who recently decommitted from Central Florida. Ware is planning to visit Georgia this weekend and Louisville next weekend.
