Former Louisville forward Chane Behanan officially declares for 2014 NBA Draft

It has been a rough stretch of time for former Louisville forward Chane Behanan, and after his high-profile decision to transfer to Colorado State for his remaining eligibility, he will not play a single game for the Rams, as he has officially declared for the 2014 NBA Draft.

The latest in the long line of issues for Behanan came approximately four weeks ago with a marijuana citation, but prior to that, he was dismissed from Louisville after repeated incidents and even reportedly checked into a rehab facility to fight his problems. Unfortunately for the 21-year-old power forward, his NBA prospects aren’t terribly high at this stage, and this smells like a decision simply to stop attending school rather than a calculated decision based on his draft stock.

The 6-foot-7 Behanan has been a tremendous college player when on the floor, but he is currently listed as just the #90 player for ESPN’s Chad Ford, and as the #48 player in the junior class (yikes) by Draft Express. In all actuality, there is a very real chance that he could go undrafted, and that would be an unfortunate end to a painful saga.
