and Aboubakar Zaki

has elected to stay in the draft, as we anticipated in our article below, according to his agent Andy Miller.
-Ukrainian Sergey Gladyr
has surprisingly elected to stay in the draft, his agent Bouna Ndiaye told us. Ndiaye was looking for a commitment from a team drafting in the second round, and it looks like he received it. While Gladyr is still very young, he's already a big time athlete and shooter/scorer, and from what we saw at the Eurocamp in Treviso, he could end up being a great value pick in the second round for some team.

is returning to Maryland, a source close to the situation told DraftExpress.
is staying in the draft according to numerous media outlets. 1:50 PM Update
will keep his name in the draft, his agent Dan Fegan told DraftExpress. Clearly the rift between Rubio and his Spanish team DKV Joventut is too deep to mend at this point, and with the team strapped for cash and not playing in next years Euroleague, that does not appear to be a situation that Rubio is interested in returning to.
Rubio lands in Los Angles today and will begin to evaluate his options regarding who he may work out with. At this point, the Sacramento Kings are the only team that are certain to get a visit. Memphis and Oklahoma City are not on the agenda as of now, and its not yet clear whether they will be added. Other teams who are looking to move up in the draft may get a chance to visit with Rubio, depending on their interest level and the likelihood of them brokering a deal with a team like the Grizzlies or Thunder. 12:40 PM Update
has elected to stay in the draft, a source close to the situation tells us. Gibson is working out in Utah today with Tyler Hansbrough
, and based on the feedback hes received from NBA teams thus far, feels comfortable with his standing as a late first round pick.
is 98% staying in the draft, according to a source close to the situation, despite the fact that he has no guarantees in the first round. He is working out in Oklahoma City today, owners of the #25 pick. This move will take a great deal of pressure off him next year, as he wont have to worry about his draft stock in what is sure to be an up and down rookie season in Europe.
is still debating whether to keep his name in the draft or not, according to a source close to the situation, but the gut feeling is that hell end up staying in. Eyenga is a great case of the new approach many agents are taking towards European players, as he is clearly trying to avoid the restrictions of the NBAs rookie scale for first round draft picks by entering the draft at a very young age (19).
Our understanding is that he wouldnt be too distraught by going undrafted, but that there are still a number of teams with high-level scouting in Europe who are familiar enough with him to potentially take a gamble on him in the mid to late portion of the second round. As you can read in Eyengas scouting report
from November, were talking about a very physically gifted wing player with tremendous athleticism and upside. Once you get past the first 30-35 picks or so, there arent many players in this draft who share his upside, even if hes still a very raw player from a skills standpoint. A team looking to conserve cap space, lacking in roster spots and/or possessing multiple draft picks could find him very intriguing in the second round.
It will be very interesting to see where he ends up, should he indeed decide to stay in. 10:09 AM Update
-Wake Forests Jeff Teague
will announce shortly that hes staying in the draft and hiring agent Mike Conley of BDA Sports, a source told DraftExpress.
-Following a series of strong workouts in front of virtually every team in the NBA, Omri Casspi
has decided to keep his name in the draft, a representative of his agency CAA told DraftExpress.
-Last word is that Patrick Mills
is leaning towards staying in the draft. He works out for the Oklahoma City Thunder today.
has not received a guarantee from any NBA team as of yet, but may still stay in the draft regardless, a source close to the situation told DraftExpress. Harangody would like to stay in the draft, particularly if he feels good about his chances of being drafted in the late first or early second round. A final decision will be made Monday.
and Vladimir Dasic
have both withdrawn their name from the draft, according to their European agency Beobasket.
will withdraw, his agent Herb Rudoy told us this weekend.
