    I love his hair too. Until he broke out the headband, that was not a good look.

    Looks like Smits will be taking part in NBA workouts this summer, as he's allowed to.

    Do we now have to fret about Smits leaving for the NBA before he’s played a single game for BU:eek:;)

    I would think Smits leaving early would be a minor worry for Butler at this time. The bigger worry is where this program will be in two to three years.

    He's not leaving early. He's simply going to the camp so that NBA scouts can tell him what to work on to get his game ready for the next step after college.

    Hopefully it's the NBA, that would mean he developed into an All-Big East caliber player. Smits is on our team now. Let's stop the bashing and turn it into cheering. If Smits wins then we win.

    Ha—I knew it was just exploratory—just playing with the whole panic mode of the off season. The Pacers often give Indiana players or players from Indiana teams a workout. Gives them a leg up when negotiating with Euro teams. Think Kellen, Matt, etc.

    Meh. I’ll stop until he plays poorly.

    I think it's unlikely to happen, but having another player in the NBA certainly wouldn't hurt recruiting.

    I’ve come around to believing he will be a big improvement over Brunk and Fowler. He is smoother and has better foot work. Will he get stronger and be aggressive?

    He’s excited to play one season for us. I’m excited to see him at Hinkle in a Butler uniform. Can we cut the bullshit and support this kid please?

    I think it is good news that he is eager to improve his skills. Image if he had a breakout season.

    Sounds like Smits found out what he has to do, I welcome his addition.

    Since he is a grad transfer he should have the time to devote to getting better and stronger. Knowing he needs to focus on rebounding and defense is encouraging,
