With the April 25th early entry deadline just 2 weeks away, here's our look at which players should enter the draft and which should stay in school.
The NBA has a selection committee whose job it is to gather information from NBA teams and inform any underclassmen that inquires where they could be expected to go if they declare for the NBA draft early. Players and their families should obviously listen to their opinions over anyone. First rounders have guaranteed contracts and 2nd rounders do not, which is the important distinction.
I've been in Portland since Wednesday for the Nike Hoops Summit and have taken in 3 Team USA practices and 2 World Team practices.
The NBA scouts have been at each of the World Team Practices and were allowed to sit in on the last USA team practice this afternoon. The USA team scrimmaged a team comprised mostly of Portland State players including Nik Raivio.
