A note about today’s draft

I was hoping to live blog the draft again this year, but due to scheduling issues beyond my control (I have a meeting and I have to pick-up my daughter from day care), I probably won’t be able to provide any real-time updates. If I have time, I might be able to get in some of the later rounds, but I can’t say for sure. I will, however, post the final results after the draft. I will also try to include individual player grades from the various media outlets.

On a side note, I do apologize for a slower posting schedule this season. I know some people were upset that I wasn’t posting full box scores this year and wasn’t really covering the high school tournaments as much. There are good reasons for this, but I can’t really get into them right now. All I can say is that this isn’t a sign that I’m about to close the site and that if anything, things should be much better next season. There are a lot of exciting developments going on in the background and I’m hoping to post a little bit about them some time during the upcoming off-season. So don’t give up on this site just yet!
