This Saturday is the date for early entrants for those who have not signed an agent to withdraw their name from the NBA draft. BYU's Jimmer Fredette is going to take his decision down to the wire even though he has said all along that he plans to return to school. This week Fredette is having four workouts with NBA teams for an evaluation:
"My expectations is to go into this thing expecting to come back," Fredette said in an interview last month. "Never know what can happen. If you have an opportunity and that presents itself, you may never get it again. Might have to take it. ... The mindset going in is solely coming back to school. Test the waters and see what it's like."
It is unlikely any guarantee would come from those workouts, because the only reason to stay in the draft would be if he was assured of being drafted in the first round since those are guaranteed contracts.
The other early entrant is New Mexico's Darrington Hobson who is rated higher then Jimmer Fredette in the first mock draft from Ridiculous Upside who has Hobson going to the Miami Heat in the second round.
