The NBA Draft is just a few months away and some of the college basketball stars from this past year and this current March Madness tournament are deciding to declare. While not everyone has entered the draft yet, as all eyes remain on Joel Embiid and Jabari Parker, two other college stars have decided what they want to do and their decision is to start their NBA careers this summer.
According to Adam Zagoria from SNY.tv, Duke forward Rodney Hood and Louisville star Montrezl Harrell will both be entering the NBA Draft this June.

With Hood out of the tournament with Duke, his status will waver in terms of where he’ll end up being picked. He appears to be a decent lock to go int he lottery but the same can’t yet be said for Harrell.
Louisville is primed for a deep run that could end in another championship, which means Harrell has at least one more game to prove his worth to scouts and try to raise his draft stock as high as it can go. IN our current Sweet Sixteen edition NBA mock draft, Hood is slated to go to the Cleveland Cavaliers at No. 9 overall while the Memphis Grizzlies land Harrell at No. 22 overall.
