Ramsey’s death was announced by Kentucky, where he was a part of the Wildcats’ 1951 national championship team and a three-time All-American. The school said he died of natural causes.

The 6-foot-3 guard was selected by the Celtics in the first round of the 1953 NBA draft and began his professional career one year later. He averaged double figures in eight of his nine seasons and 13.4 points per game for his career. His No. 23 jersey is retired by Boston.

The question for Lin has not been about his on-court contributions but whether he can stay healthy. Lin has played in only 37 games since signing his deal in Brooklyn because of a left-hamstring injury in 2016-17 and rupturing his right patellar tendon in the first game of the 2017-18 season. With the emergence of Spencer Dinwiddie and the acquisition of D’Angelo Russell, Lin is the odd man out.

The Nets might not be able to swing a good deal now, but if both players can stay healthy, they should have value when it comes closer to the February deadline, particularly if Brooklyn is heading to the lottery and a playoff team is looking for established veterans.

Against a Villanova, you could put him on [national player of the year point guard] Jalen Brunson or [Julius Erving Award Arizona Diamondbacks Jersey winner small forward] Mikal Bridges, who’s 6-8, or anybody in between, McDermott said. He would chase [St. John’s guard] Shamorie Ponds, who had the ball in his hands all the time, or guard [Butler’s] Kelan martin or [Xavier’s] Trevon Bluiett, who they’d run off a million screens.

Besides having the versatility to defend several positions, Khyri’s got the versatility to defend a lot of different actions. Sometimes, it’s as simple as keeping the ball in front of you. Other times, it’s being there on the catch, or dealing with a lot of Kenny Golladay Jersey screening action. That takes vision, and it takes anticipation, and Khryi prepared himself for all of it by watching tons of film. The more you know what’s possibly coming, the better you’re prepared for it.

Another thing Thomas is prepared for is how he’ll be utilized at the next level. As well as he shoots, he’s not likely to be a team’s No. 1 scoring option. He’ll serve a utility function, playing more than one position, and, especially, guarding more than one. That’s why Thomas’ name has turned up as a first round pick in numerous mock drafts.
