Does Harangody Get Drafted Tonight?

Notre Dame's Luke Harangody learns tonight if he'll be drafted by an NBA Team or, if he'll have to go the "free agency" route to make an NBA roster. The 2010 NBA Draft begins tonight at 7 PM EST at Madison Square Garden -- it will be televised on ESPN. Harangody is a "tweener" at 6'-6" tall (not the 6'-8" a Notre Dame basketball roster would like you to believe). He's not big enough to be your prototypical NBA power forward -- nor, is he athletic enough to be your prototypical NBA small forward. Yet, he knows how to play the game -- and NBA Draft Experts have him going as high as 25th (which would be the tail end of the first round) or not being drafted at all. Going to be a nerve wracking day for the Harangody's!
