Anyone still wondering if Grant Jerrett really has a chance at the NBA, might want to check out Draft Express' very detailed analysis of him after last week's combine.

Essentially, it notes what many UA fans know: That Jerrett is a good shooting big man who moves a bit awkwardly and lacks elite strength and quickness.

But it also talks about his intriguing upside and the question of whether an NBA team will gamble on whether Jerrett can reach that upside.

"Ultimately, Jerrett is largely an open book who, depending on where (and if) he is drafted could develop into a solid value pick-up for his size and perimeter shooting a few years down the road," writes Kyle Nelson, who later added: "Getting drafted is not out of the question at this point, but it will involve a lot of work on the court and off of it to convince decision makers that he has what it takes to compete in the NBA and is worth investing in considering how far away he is from being able to contribute."

Arizona received $10.6 million from the Pac-12 in fiscal 2011-12, according to tax records reviewed by Jon Wilner of the Mercury News. 

It's important to note that the figures were from the last year of the old media rights deals, so the numbers will be much greater (in UA's case, about 50 percent) and more equitable in 2012-13.

Records also showed the Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott received $3.1 million in total compensation in 2011, according to USA Today. Deputy commissioner Kevin Weiberg made $564,000.
