I thought I would put this together now that the season is coming to an end.

I haven't heard of anyone leaving early yet. Until some news breaks, here is a picture of Freddy Mercury riding Darth Vader....

I think Bullock leaves just because of the family situation and the money could help out. He also just had a baby so that might effect it too but you never know what roy might say to these kids to make them stay.


Roy: "The NBA usually likes to find guys that come off teams that won 30 games and go to the Final Four. Our guys understand that"

I could maybe see Bullock leaving, but he would have to raise his draft stock first. Right now he isnt projected to go in the 1st round, and if you dont go in the 1st there is no guaranteed money

Though honestly I like his potential as an NBA player- he has good height, can hit the 3 and plays solid defense. He wont be a star but should be a useful complementary guy like Danny Green

I agree, I think him and Hairston both have great size to play the 2 in the NBA.

NC State's Lorenzo Brown expected to declare for NBA Draft
March 26, 2013 1:01 pm ET

NC State's Lorenzo Brown is expected to declare for the NBA Draft, sources told CBSSports.com.
The 6-foot-5 junior point guard averaged 12.4 points, 7.2 assists and 4.3 rebounds this season for an N.C. State team that was 24-11, 11-7 in the ACC and lost to Temple in the second round. An announcement could come this week from the school.
Brown is projected by many scouts as a late first-round pick. In the most recent CBSSports.com mock draft, Brown is 28th overall. N.C. State coach Mark Gottfried could also lose junior C.J. Leslie early to the NBA Draft, and will lose seniors Richard Howell and Scott Wood off this year's team.

I believe UNLV's Anthony Bennett is leaning toward declaring.

I expect CJ and Zo to both go pro but fwiw CJ did tweet "Who said I was going pro" shortly followed by Zo responding with "Church to that!"....but they will probably both still go

Saw an article that states:

TJ Warren
Lorenzo Brown
Rasheed Suliamon

all legitimate threats to leave

Brown is a lock but I would be surprised if the other two went. Still, money talks.

Yeah one more year would certainly do him good. But you gotta look at it like this...next year's draft. Tony Parker from UCLA, Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins, basically the starting 5 from Kentucky, Rodney Purvis, Shane Larkin, etc...that draft is going to be loaded.

This year? not so much lol

Larkin would be crazy not to declare this year, he can only hurt his stock next year.

they said on CBS he was coming back. I agree though, he's an idiot not to declare this year.

He may have just said that he's returning to put an end to the troll reporters bugging him about it during the tourney. IMHO he is leaving.

Of course he isn't. But PJ, Bullock, and JMM are all locks to leave right?

Every mock I've looked at has him as a 1st rd pick.

wait did someone actually say TJ Warren? lol
[/quote]

Yeah. I saw it on twitter. One of those guys like Will Brinson or Bill Voth retweeted from an "insider" that Warren along with Zo were thinking hard about it. I'm posting from my phone at work, ill try to dig it up when I get home.

As a Carolina fan I wouldn't be upset about him leaving. One if the best freshmen in America last season.

Only UNC player I think is leaving is McAdoo. He'd be silly not too. Next year he will likely be exposed again and slip out of the 1st round.

By exposed, do you mean like playing out of position all season?

Any player, Rasheed included, looking to go a few spots higher than they should will consider leaving early.

No, by exposed I mean, exposed. As in, can't shoot FTs, can't consistently shoot 10-15 jumpers, doesn't play good defense.

The only thing he has going for him is very high athleticism and the fact that his dad was an all-pro.


And Sheed will only get better. He is only averaging 11 points a game. Next year he will be a much more dominant scorer. No reason to leave now.

Normally the best mock drafts are from draftexpress.

NBA scouts are neither blind nor retarded, they have a pretty good grasp on Mcadoo's game at this point. He wouldnt hurt his stock by coming back unless he shows no improvement next year
