    College coaches vote UConn’s Kevin Ollie best-suited/most likely to make NBA jump

    Kevin Ollie made himself one of the NBA’s hottest coaching prospects by leading UConn to the 2014 NCAA title. He has since resisted NBA overtures, including from the Lakers in 2014 and Thunder last year. But his peers don’t expect Ollie’s hesitance to last. Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander of CBSSPorts.com asked more than 110 college coaches, “Which active college coach is best suited and most likely to next jump to the NBA?” The results: Coach, college Percentage Kevin Ollie, UConn 20 percent Bill Self, Kansas 17 percent John Calipari, Kentucky 16 percent Jay Wright, Villanova 16 percent Shaka Smart, Texas 9 percent Tony Bennett, Virginia 8 percent Note: Other coaches who received at least three

    In the first five years of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement, two players drafted in the 50s received a $1 million guarantee the same offseason they were selected. This year, the list has doubled. The Cavaliers guaranteed $1 million to No. 54 pick Kay Felder, and No. 52 pick Joel Bolomboy – just signed by the Jazz – will get even more. Bolomboy’s $600,000 salary this season is fully guaranteed, and $452,625 of his salary next season is guaranteed, according to Basketball Insiders. That’s a grand total of $1,052,625 guaranteed on a three-year contract. Only Tornike Shengelia (No. 54 pick in 2012 from Nets) and Kris Joseph (No. 51 pick in 2012 from Celtics) got more as players picked
