ESPN Radio reports he has now declared for the draft – but without an agent. That doesn’t surprise me.
While it is true, his draft status could fall, that is not a big issue since he would then have a full year and another set of camps to raise it again. But if he does well in camps, he could raise his stock and gain an immediate dividend – one that may or may not be available next year.
If he stays and fails to improve next year by the expected amount, then his draft status would fall. Also there is the injury risk. If he tears up a knee, then his chance for NBA or Europe dollars could fly out the window.
