Michigan State Spartans’ shooting guard Gary Harris is a certain first round pick and seems like a pretty sure bet to go in the lottery in June’s NBA Draft.
In fact, Draft Express currently has Harris going 10th overall, a pick that the Philadelphia 76ers are currently projected to have.
Despite the hype and the temptation of the NBA, Harris says he has not made any decision on his future.
Before Thursday’s 86-76 victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes, the Spartans’ home finale, Harris was asked if he would be emotional.
“I mean, I think we should all feel like that,” Harris told Gillian Van Stratt of MLive.com. “I haven’t decided what my status is going to be, but it’s our last time playing in Breslin until next year. If you think about it, that’s a long time. This came fast. This is the last time the fans get to see us here and then it’s off to the Big Ten tournament and then off to wherever we go in the NCAA (tournament).”
Harris, a 6’4 sophomore, is averaging 17.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game this season.
