Duke's Amile Jefferson Encourages NBA Teams On Twitter To Draft Marshall Plumlee

Tomorrow night is the 2016 NBA Draft, and while Duke's Brandon Ingram is projected to be off the board with the No. 2 overall pick, it's looking unlikely that his teammate Marshall Plumlee will be selected. 

Currently, multiple mock drafts aren't projecting Plumlee to be chosen in either round. Still, his Blue Devil frontcourt partner Amile Jefferson is trying to convince teams on Twitter that they should pick Plumlee.

This morning, Jefferson dropped this amazing picture of Plumlee throwing down a dunk on some poor dude in basketball. Attached to it as part of the tweet was a plea imploring teams to "Draft the Plumdozer."

I don't think we've talked enough about how great that picture is. Just look at it some more.

From a basketball standpoint, while Plumlee probably won't get picked, he'll get a chance to impress a team this summer and probably in training camp. He isn't the best senior prospect in this draft, but perhaps no one improved more during his four years in college.
