Christian Drejer a Cautionary Tale for Foreign Players

When Christian Drejer decided to leave Denmark in 2002 and play for an American college, he looked like a surefire lottery pick. A 6'-9" swingman who had averaged 33 ppg and 8 rpg in Europe's Under-20 competition, Drejer was projected as high as No. 10 if he declared. But Drejer's choice of Florida turned out to be a disaster and a warning to other Euro's: pick a program suited for your skills and style. Now, after being drafted at No. 51 by the Nets in 2004, he has a second chance.
