March may be over, but for NBA Draft nuts, there are still two more months of madness. And no time is more maddening than the present, as underclassmen decide whether they will return to school or say goodbye to college to pursue their NBA dreams.
Duke's Jabari Parker? He finally came around. One-man hype machine Andrew Wiggins? He's in. So, too, is Kansas teammate and fellow potential No. 1 pick Joel Embiid. Neither Michigan nor Michigan State was immune from the lure of the NBA, each losing key cogs to early entry. Entering this season, Marcus Smart looked like the class of the point guard field. He's headed to the NBA, but so are Dante Exum and Tyler Ennis, making PG perhaps the deepest position in the field.
