Deron Williams to Announce His Decision

By Illini Wonk

April 19th, 2005

Deron Williams to Announce His Decision Tonight

Yesterday, Illini Wonk brought you the expert opinions of where Deron Williams will go in the 2005 NBA Draft. Tonight, at 7:30 p.m. CT., Williams, along with Coach Bruce Weber will hold a press conference on campus. No doubt, Williams will use this opportunity to announce that he is forgoing his senior year to enter the NBA Draft.

UPDATE: A source has told Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Deron Williams will announce that he is declaring himself eligible for the NBA draft tonight.

Deon Thomas suffers serious injury


Suffering what Haaretz called a freak training accident, Deon Thomas, the all-time leading scorer in Illinois Basketball history, may have seen his pro career come to an end. The Jerusalem Post said a loud cracking sound was heard as Thomas landed after jumping for a rebound and his left shin broke into two. According to the Euroleague official website, Thomas broke his leg so severely in practice that he was to undergo an operation later Wednesday night. No word on the Internet yet on how that surgery went. Our thoughts and prayers here at Illini Wonk are with Deon.
