Gee, Vaden hoping to land with NBA teams

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's Alonzo Gee and UAB's Robert Vaden are the likeliest bets from state universities to be chosen in the NBA draft, and even they might be longshots.

Both are considered either second-round picks or undrafted free agents in the two-round draft Thursday night.

Gee and Vaden have been training in Las Vegas and have worked out for a number of NBA teams.

The 6-foot-6, 219-pound Gee averaged 15 points and 7.2 rebounds for the Crimson Tide last season, his third as a starter.

The 6-foot-5, 205-pound Vaden was one of the top 3-point shooters in Conference USA and led the Blazers in scoring the past two seasons after sitting out a year following a transfer from Indiana.
