2011 NBA Draft: Chances Of Being Selected For Wanamaker, Brown, McGhee

With the NBA Draft coming up, the weekly Pitt feature over at SB Nation Pittsburgh takes a look at if the Panthers' trio of seniors, Brad Wanamaker, Gilbert Brown, and Gary McGhee, might be selected.

Here's a snippet:

With the 2011 NBA Draft fast approaching, Pitt could have as many as three players selected this year. The likelihood, however, that Brad Wanamaker, Gilbert Brown, and Gary McGhee will all be taken is slim. Each has a specific skill set that he brings to the table, but none are clear-cut NBA players, and all three will need to put in significant hours in the gym if they hope to stick in the league.
