Florida Gators Michael Frazier II, Chris Walker not selected in 2015 NBA Draft

The Florida Gators, after a tough 2014-15 season that was one of the worst in program history under former head coach Billy Donovan, did not have either of its two eligible underclassmen selected on Thursday in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Neither junior guard Michael Frazier II nor sophomore forward/center Chris Walker heard his name called in Brooklyn.

Frazier was considered a potential second-round selection and should be a top target among undrafted free agents, while Walker was never projected to be drafted.

It is the second straight year that the Gators did not have a player picked in the two-round event, continuing the end of a three-year streak of seeing at least one Florida player get drafted from 2011-13.

A total of 35 former Gators have been selected in the history of the event. UF has only had one first-round pick (Bradley Beal, No. 3 overall, 2012) in the last seven drafts after seeing five go in the first 30 picks during a four-year span from 2005-08.

Evaluating Florida Gators G Michael Frazier II, F/C Chris Walker ahead of 2015 NBA Draft

A pair of Florida Gators basketball players will be sticking close to their televisions on Thursday as they hope to hear their names called during the two-round 2015 NBA Draft, which will emanate live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn beginning at 7 p.m.

Whether either guard Michael Frazier II or forward/center Chris Walker actually get drafted is another story altogether.

While a total of 35 former Gators have been selected in the history of the event, Florida has only had one first-round pick (Bradley Beal, No. 3 overall, 2012) in the last six drafts after having five in a four-year span from 2005-08.

In fact, 2014 marked the first time since 2010 that UF did not have a player picked in the two-round draft, snapping a three-year streak.

Depending which analyst one speaks with, that drought could continue either continue for the Gators or end abruptly with Frazier and Walker both potentially being second-round selections on Thursday.

OnlyGators.com sat down with Ryan Blake, the NBA’s director of scouting, to get his evaluations of Frazier and Walker ahead of Thursday night’s event.
