I've delayed writing about Arnett Moultrie's decision to withdraw from the NBA draft BUT not return to UTEP.
Basically, I was waiting for some flash of insight, but it still hasn't come. (And maybe I was also a little afraid that Joe on Utepia's commenters would come after me next.)
The decision doesn't seem to make sense ... except perhaps in the mind of a still young man who wasn't ready to put up with the discipline of Tim Floyd. Somewhat understandable, I suppose, but why not then go pro? He was probably told he wouldn't make the NBA, but there's always Europe.
And even if he didn't like Floyd right away, is it really going to be better somewhere else?
Gary Parrish of CBS Sportsline goes with the interesting prediction that Moultrie will end up at Memphis. He'd have to sit out a year, but he might be willing to. That would actually be kind of fun ... it would be interesting to see the reception he'd get returning to the Don Haskins Center as a foe.
Of course, conference realignment could mess even that possibility up. But that's a topic for another day.
