Technical Tidbits 5/12: Georges-Hunt waits for NBA opportunity, ACC to revise replay procedure

New, 28 comments

Former Jacket Marcus Georges-Hunt is prepared for his next step.

It apparently took nothing more than a single game-deciding blown call to prompt the ACC to consider revising its review processes in advance of this season -- the walkoff lateral play which propelled Miami to victory over Duke last year is apparently a catalyst for the conference's decision to make changes. How that aforementioned lateral play was not blown dead in the first place is beyond me. It was beyond obvious that Miami's Mark Walton was brought down well before the seven-pitch miracle ensued, but the ACC officials were unable to come to the correct conclusion despite having quite literally all the time they needed for video review. Maybe implementing a single location for video reviews will help to mitigate these issues in the future.

Marcus Georges-Hunt's Georgia Tech career may have come to a close with Tech's NIT loss against San Diego State, but the talented combo guard is still pursuing a potential NBA career as his offseason progresses. Though Georges-Hunt figures to go undrafted next month, he will almost certainly have an opportunity to show off for a team at some point. Whether that opportunity comes during the NBA's annual summer league or via independent workouts remains to be seen, but I'd be shocked if no one takes a flyer of some type on one of the finest players in Tech history. A career overseas could be another option, but whether Georges-Hunt is willing to either leave or relocate his family for the opportunity remains to be seen.

Speaking of former Tech players currently overseas, now seems like as good a time as any to take a look at where exactly a few of Tech's undrafted basketball stars are right now. Spoiler: I have no idea where some of these places are.

Daniel Miller, F/C: After a very successful Tech career, Miller is still playing professionally. After a short stint in Spain, Miller played one year in Turkey before landing with his current team down in New Zealand. You'd be hard pressed to pronounce any one of his stops: Río Natura Monbús, Akhisar Belediyespor, and Taranaki Mountainairs.

Trae Golden, G: The best I can figure is that Golden is currently a free agent after spending a pair of seasons overseas, one in Finland and one in Cyprus. If you recall, he played at Tech from 2013-2014 after transferring in from Tennessee.

DeMarco Cox, C: Unquestionably the best-traveled of them all, Cox spent a year of his post-Tech time in the exotic lands of Indianapolis where he held a roster spot with the Colts for a couple of months. He was though to be a project to help bolster Indy's offensive line but was cut shortly after signing a contract.

Brooks Doyle, G: Demigod, Nobel Prize recipient, legend. These are a few words which could describe former walk-on Brooks Doyle if he wasn't busy doing cooler stuff. I don't know where he is right now, but I'm at least 90% sure that he's dunking on LeBron James at this moment.
