Hey guys, I am one of the writers for the Gonzaga Blog on SB Nation, The Slipper Still Fits. The NBA Summer league has four Gonzaga players in it, Austin Daye, Jeremy Pargo, Micah Downs, and Josh Heytvelt. Well, and Adam Morrison but we won't go there. I think if you asked any Gonzaga fan who they thought would have the most successful career out of that group, Josh Heytvelt would have gotten a lot of votes. With that being said, Josh has only played about five minutes per game, and he has largely been an afterthought thus far. He has been by far the least active and successful former Zag and I was just curious if you all had any insight as to what is going on. I'm sure you know that most mock drafts had Josh as a mid second round pick and for him to go from that to barely playing in the summer league is perplexing.
At Gonzaga, Josh was questioned a lot for being lazy and not really committing himself to the game of basketball. I've seen reports here and there about lazy defense by him and other things. I'm sure you guys were pretty excited about Josh being on the Wizards summer league team so if you have any thoughts or whatever on what is going on, I would love to hear them because it is quite a strange thing. Unless, of course, you are keeping him away from other teams and saving him as a secret weapon...then its cool!
