NEW YORK -- Malachi Richardson and Wade Baldwin were seated at a pair of elevated tables about 20 feet apart on Wednesday afternoon at NBA Draft Media Day at the Grand Hyatt New York.

It only seemed appropriate that the two Jersey Boys were addressing the media at the same time since their prep careers in the Garden State overlapped and intersected at critical moments.

Three years ago, Richardson and current Syracuse forward Tyler Roberson teamed to lead Roselle Catholic to its first New Jersey Tournament of Champions title with a 65-49 victory over a St. Joe's-Metuchen team that included Baldwin and Karl-Anthony Towns, the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft out of Kentucky.
