Rumor: Carl Elliott going to Portsmouth Invitational?

I'm not sure about this one. Carl Elliott is not on the official roster for the Portsmouth Invitation Tournament, a showcase for NBA scouts to watch college basketball seniors. However, two posters at GWhoops.com (one of whom is the suddenly notorious Cadillac) say he will be there. The other poster says GW sports information director Brad Bower confirmed it, but I don't have a source confirming that.

The reason I'm not so sure is that Cadillac says "Carl's on the Tidewater Sealants team with guys like Curtis Sumpter, Landry (Purdue), Sims (Michigan)." That doesn't match the PIT roster at all, but it's exactly the same as the predictions from Draft Express, which as they note, are just their guesses on what might happen. Sumpter is also not on the official roster.

UPDATE:
He is on the roster now, for Sales Systems Ltd, along with Stephane Lasme from UMass. Good luck to Carl, I hope he turns some heads.

Am I the only one who thinks Carl looks like 50 cent?
