Saint Louis University guard Justin Love wasn’t drafted Wednesday night, but in reality, that may have helped his chances of making an NBA team. First round draft picks are guaranteed a contract, but second rounders, like St. Louisan Chris Carrawell, must try to make the roster of the team that picked them. Love, on the other hand, can choose to sign as a free agent with a team that he has a better chance of making. SLU Coach Lorenzo Romar says Phoenix is very interested in signing Love, and probably would have chosen him if the Suns had a second round pick, which they didn’t. Romar says most NBA people he talked to were concerned that Love, at 6-2, was too small to play shooting guard in the NBA.
