07:06 AM ET 05.15 | What a difference a year makes in the case Shabazz Muhammad. If you looked at the early 2013 NBA draft projections that came out right after the 2012 draft, Shabazz Muhammad was in everybody's top three. He was the college recruit that was going to save Ben Howland at UCLA and go on to be a big-time NBA player. Things look very different a year later. ... He's very one-handed -- he's all left hand. That makes him easier to defend and that was already a bit of an issue. While he knows how to score he's not a guy who can really create his own shot at the NBA level. He could be a guy taking a lot of contested runners. Again, this becomes about fit, in the right system his style of scoring would have value.

Because he has been exposed! The story just basically answered your question.

The kid's got decent skills, to have a reasonable NBA player as a back-up, bench type role-player. Nothing more than that.
