Siena star frosh Jalen Pickett to test NBA waters

LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. (AP) Jalen Pickett had a hard time getting schools to notice him before he signed with Siena a year ago. Now, he already has workouts scheduled with NBA teams after entering his name into consideration for the upcoming draft.

"I'm going to go out there and see where I stand with all the great college players, see if I can play at the next level, just get some feedback on my game," Pickett said Tuesday. "I always wanted to get to the NBA later on. I didn't think it was going to come so fast. To get this type of acknowledgement so early ... is just a dream come true.

"I'm pretty confident. I'm never going to be scared," added Pickett, who only received a handful of college offers after one year of prep school despite stellar play in AAU ball. "I'm going to go out there and play my game."
