Drew Neitzel watched the draft at his Grand Rapids area home Thursday night.  And before he went to bed, after not being one of the 60 selections, he'd signed with an NBA team as a free agent-- the Minnesota Timberwolves.  Neitzel figures the team has openings for point guards, but if he doesn't make it, he'll head for Europe to try and play next season.  Neitzel will report to the Timberwolves' summer league team in Las Vegas on July 8th and the season runs from July 11-20th.  Good luck to him, he's a great guy and he's always said he's had to prove himself because of his lack of size throughout his entire career.

    I wish the best for Drew . You have to appreciate a kid that has the skill that he carries and finish his four years in college. We all know what can happen if you listen to the pro agents and leave early when your not ready for the next level. It may take a year or two but Drew should make it to the N.B.A.
