Greivis Vasquez had only a few points he had to make, even if he chatted with the assembled media for about 12 minutes today at Verizon Center.

He’s not a shooting guard.


He doesn’t plan to go to Europe before his eligibility is through.

He’s having fun and trying to get better.

That last item was Vasquez’s primary talking point throughout his chat with reporters, to the tune of probably eight or nine mentions (I’ll transcribe the whole thing later). He will be at the pre-draft camp in Chicago next week, and also has a workout scheduled with Minnesota (he previously worked out for Cleveland and San Antonio).

In any case, this looks like it won’t be a decision arrived upon quickly. And, really, who can blame the guy? As he pointed out, any junior in the country who hasn’t applied for the draft has every reason in the world to figure out where he stands.

That’s the approach Vasquez is taking, and he still has another three and a half weeks before he decides whether to return to Maryland or not (the deadline is June 15). So expect a holding pattern for a while, because it’s clear Vasquez is going to take advantage of what time is at his disposal.
