The April 16, 2013, deadline has come and gone, meaning that anyone who decides to go pro between now and April 28, 2013, will make that decision as a point-of-no-return. That will not stop folks from doing so, but the consequences will be a bit sharper. At this point, those eligible for the NBA draft are what they are. There are a number of ACC players that will be among the players drafted. Who are they?
First of all, who are the early entries from ACC schools so far? CBS Sportsline has a nice list going. Here are the players from the ACC schools on the list:
Second, where will these kids go? Well, here is where Chad Ford slots these guys, and other ACC draft-eligibles, in terms of overall NBA talent:
A few other players to note. These guys are all still undecided: Shane Larkin of Miami is at #30; Rasheed Sulaimon of Duke is at #48; and CJ Fair of Syracuse is at 71. The decision should be tough for Larkin, but fairly easy for Fair. You want to be pretty certain you get a first round contract if you are going to leave.
