Can Arizona Wildcats' Kevin Parrom Make An NBA Team?

Kevin Parrom was not the best player on the Arizona Wildcats in the 2012-13 college basketball season, but can he still make an NBA team regardless?

Unfortunately, it would take a miracle for Parrom to get picked up in the 2013 NBA Draft. However, Parrom could get signed after the draft.

He only played 23.6 minutes per game this past season, but he still managed to average 8.3 points per game and 4.9 rebounds per game. He also shot 48.3 percent from the field and 39.6 percent from behind the arc. With more playing time, Parrom could have put up some big numbers this past season, but that was not the case.

He still shoots the ball efficiently and he can drain from behind the arc, making 42 threes on the year. He stands at 6’6”, so he would be the right size for a shooting guard and undersized as a small forward.

He was part of a very good Arizona team this past season and he was the fourth leading scorer and rebounder on the team. Many Arizona players will be a mystery in this year’s draft, but Parrom will almost definitely not hear his name being called on draft day. That does not mean that he is not a good player though.

He averaged 7.6 points per game in the 2013 NCAA Tournament, which likely did not help with his draft stock. Still, Parrom played four seasons with the Wildcats and he had his best year yet in his senior year, which should show teams that he is good enough to play in the NBA.
