A decade after the retirement of 7-0 Todd MacCulloch, Winnipeg could finally see some big-time representation in the National Basketball Association once again.

Local hoopster Chad Posthumus, 23, just completed his senior season with the Morehead State Eagles in Morehead, Ky. and is automatically entered into the 2014 NBA Draft on June 26, where Torontonian Andrew Wiggins of the University of Kansas is tabbed by several analysts to be taken first overall.

Posthumus has been fielding calls from numerous agents — 35 to 40, by his estimation — and he and his family have worked to narrow the list down to the one right fit. Should he be drafted into the NBA, it’ll be based on his rebounding. He was fourth in the entire NCAA with 370 rebounds this past season.
