Cuff 'Em: Kirk Snyder Goes From 16th Pick In NBA Draft To Facing 18 Years In Jail

‚ By 

kirk-snyderRemember Kirk Snyder, the former University of Nevada basketballer who led the Wolf Pack to the 2004 Sweet 16? The same guy who was then picked 16th overall in the 2004 NBA Draft?

Well, today he finds out if he’ll spend the next 18 years in prison for breaking into a suburban Dayton, O. townhouse in the middle of the night and assaulting a man in his bedroom. He is charged with aggravated burglary, felonious assault and assault.

The defense says Kirk is insane. The prosecution says he’s fine and was playing basketball in China last year. We thought blaming it on the Chinese smog was the better defense, but what do we know?

[Verdict expected Thursday in trial of ex-NBA player]
