Previewing The 2016 NBA Draft--Basketball Predictions
Overrated:

Kay Felder -This pains me, because I like to see "unknown" guys from smaller schools make it big in the NBA. But I'm not sure what the precedent is in the modern NBA is for a 5'9" guy who can't shoot the ball real well being an effective NBA player. Felder is a great playmaker, and he led the entire nation with a 50.0% assist rate this past season, but the fact is that NBA teams aren't going to help defend a guy who can't really shoot and who is never going to be able to finish at the rim against NBA defenders.

Alec Peters withdraws from NBA Draft, will he transfer?--CollegeBasketballTalk
Valparaiso's Alec Peters has withdrawn from the NBA Draft--Mid-Major Madness
NBA Draft Deadline 2016: Key returnees throughout the mid-major landscape--Mid-Major Madness
Alec Peters, Valparaiso

Peters is coming back to college, but it's not clear exactly where that will be in 2016-17. The forward is eligible for a graduate transfer, meaning the can leave for another school -- possibly a high major with a spot still open -- and play immediately. Peters averaged double figures in scoring all three seasons at Valparaiso and scored 20.8 per game in the NIT last season as he led the Crusaders to the title game. If he returns to Valpo, the Crusaders would have a shot at returning to the NCAA Tournament after some feel they were snubbed a year ago.
