NBA Draft Signing Update

The deadline for underclassmen to pull their names out of the NBA Draft is one week from yesterday (June 15).  Those that have committed to an agent no longer have an option of returning to school if they decide that they do not want to enter the draft pool.

This year’s draft class has seen many non-senior talents withdraw themselves from the draft, which has led many analysts to claim that this year’s pool is mediocre at best.  Writers are already frothing at the mouth in anticipation of next year’s class, which is supposed to be extremely deep.  Don’t forget your life preservers!

The most recent players to bow out of this year’s draft are: Tasmin Mitchell (LSU), Nic Wise (Arizona), and Dwayne Collins (Miami).
