Maybe some good news on the Craig Brackins rumors. DraftExpress lists Brackins as 50/50 on entering this year's NBA Draft.
Was rumored to be 100% set on entering the draft as late as last week, but may be wavering on that decision recently based on what we’ve been told.
Brackins is expected to test his draft status but not hire an agent. The deadline to enter the draft -- April 26 is only two weeks away.
Update (April 14): TThe Des Moines Register's Rick Brown is also reporting that Brackins is on the fence. Brown puts a positive spin on Brackins' potential jump to the pros. He writes that the Cyclones will be better positioned than when Wesley Johnson decided to transfer last summer. ISU coach Greg McDermott also seems more prepared.
"Last year we didn't have any idea we'd have to replace what we thought would be our starting small forward,'' McDermott said. "We're in a better place than we were a year ago.''
This year, ISU's insurance policy is LaRon Dendy, a 6-foot-9-inch forward from Indian Hills Community College.
