I know it’s been a while since you’ve heard from me, but I’ve been keeping myself busy with plenty of freelance writing. On Thursday, I shadowed Nik Stauskas at the NBA draft, just as I’d done with Trey Burke the year before. Stauskas was drafted by the Sacramento Kings at No. 8, higher than he was projected in any mock draft I saw. It was a fun day, and I wrote about it for Michigan Today. The story was published yesterday.

Before the draft, I collaborated with friend Nick Williams on a statistical analysis that shows why drafting centers is unwise. That ran on Sports on Earth last week.
