Sources: Dominic James to put name in NBA Draft



According to Draft Express, sources have told them that Dominic James will put his name into this year's NBA draft.


Dominic James will be announcingthat he’s putting his name in the draft, according to a source close to the situation. For now he will be just testing the waters and not hiring an agent, but it appears likely that he is in the draft for good. Where he lands will depend heavily on who amongst Mike Conley Jr, Darren Collison, Javaris Crittenton and Gabe Pruitt ends up declaring for the draft, as this draft could quickly return to being a very weak one for point guards if all those decide to return to school. James finished off the season in a horrible slump that extended for almost two months, and right now is by no means guaranteed to be a first round pick. If he can have a good showing in the pre-draft camp and then show NBA executives in workouts just how explosive a player he is, he has a chance to regain the ground he lost in his stock.

Somewhat disappointed. Haven't kept up with the news, and found out that Bob Huggins is back in MU's conference at WVU and not a post about it. Off-season news on other BE teams seems appropriate for a blog like this.

Huggins' really doesn't have any class at all does he? It will be fun to have him in the Big East - another great rivalry is already developing for MU.

So so wannabe NBA guru website says James is headed to the draft and everyone takes it as gospel inspite of ZERO word of this from Milwaukee or Richmond.

Amazing.

James needs to come back to school another year so he can grow another 2 or 3 inches. I think that's about as likely as him improving his shot. When a player gets worse from his freshman to soph years you have to question his work ethic and coaching.

CBS Sportsline is reporting the same thing. Are they a wannabe site also?
