According to the Dallas Morning News, Texas freshman forward Kevin Durant will announce that he is going to enter the NBA Draft. Two sources close to the program say that the announcement may come as early as today. Durant averaged 26 ppg and 11 rpg, leading the Longhorns to 25 wins.
According to the Tucson Citizen, Arizona sophomore forward Marcus Williams has announced that he will enter the NBA Draft. He also said that he will hire an agent, meaning that he will not be allowed to return to the Wildcats. Williams said, “I think I'm ready. It's going to give me a lot of opportunities to give back to my community. I felt like it was time.” It came as no surprise to anyone that has followed Arizona this past season, and even coach Lute Olsen has said several times that he expected Williams to declare for the Draft after the season. The All-Pac-10 first-teamer is projected as a late-first round pick, and averaged 16.6 points and 6.7 rebounds this past season.
