Chicago Hoops
March 5, 2003


The Pat Kennedy era at DePaul was marked by recruiting high caliber players into the program, and then losing them as early entry NBA draft candidates. Here is an update on where they currently stand.

Quentin Richardson – L.A. Clippers
Solid NBA player. Averaging 10 points, 5 rebounds and 24 minutes per game.

Paul McPherson – Harlem Globetrotters
Now with the Harlem Globetrotters after serving a stint last year in the NBDL. Showed promise as a rookie with the Phoenix Suns. Has bounced around since being traded by Phoenix.

Steven Hunter – Orlando Magic
Injuries have kept Hunter from getting much time on the court. Currently averaging 1.8 points, 1.8 rebounds and 8 minutes per game.

Bobby Simmons – Washington Wizards
Back with the Wizards after being traded as part of the Jerry Stackhouse for Richard Hamilton trade. Currently averaging 1.7 points, 0.9 rebounds and 4 minutes per game.

Eddy Curry – Chicago Bulls
Spurned a scholarship to DePaul for the NBA draft. Showing flashes of promise. Currently averaging 7.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 16 minutes per game.
