Both of those distinctions make him the pro basketball equivalent of Mr. Irrelevant, although his status is subject to change in the coming days, months and years. Seven point guards?

NBA teams "love his all-around game," Cal coach Cuonzo Martin said in a school news release this week. "The one thing they question is his ability to hit the 3-point shot. But everything else, they really like. They like his length, his size, his athleticism, his ability to defend, to rebound at that size."
