We loved him and cheered for him for 4 years, now Vincent Edwards is off to the NBA.

While it looks like he was headed to Utah, his rights were quickly traded to Houston.

Vince is going immediately to a contender and possible landing spot for Lebron James. A versatile player, he can play the three or a small ball 4 with the ability to shoot, run, rebound, and defend.
With Houston already on the short list of teams that can actually challenge for the NBA title he is just looking to find a role. He could find it too with his versatility. That is ultimately what will get him to stay in the league. He is not an all world talent at any one thing, but he does almost everything on the court really well as a well round player. If he can find a role he can fit im quite nicely.
Of course, we are ridiculously proud of him. Well done, big man.
