So...

A) He might declare for the NBA draft.
B) He might be a missionary for a year or so.
C) He might just go back to school?

Kid's clearly at the fork in the road.

Eh, he's slowly dropping his stock by the day. Gimme wiggins or Embiid over him.

Wiggins is the one that needs to stay another year.

Embiid as well, big men especially 6's need to stay in school longer and come to the league with better fundamentals and physical maturity.

If Jabari Stays along with so many quality underclassmen to go along With top recruits Okafor, Winston and Tyus, they should be National champs. That's one incentive for him to stay.

I can already tell this guy will be a serious attention whore. He's showing his attitude already by constantly voicing his mind.

Parker believes in magic underwear. I wouldn't put it past him.

He's just talking, a top 3 pick guaranteed for millions of dollars. Let's be serious

He's the most polished of college basketball's big names. He'd be a solid choice at #1 this year, but the kid clearly seems to want to play college ball. There were rumors that if his good friend Jhalil Okafor went to Duke, he'd stay another year. I can believe it. He has a chance to learn under Coach K for another year, play on an absolutely stacked Duke team, and still have a very good chance to be the #1 overall pick next year. I like the move.

He's the only player who probably doesn't have to stay at college, but props to him for wanting to if that's the route he chooses. Wiggins is talented, but raw. Randle isn't the biggest guy, so he'd probably benefit by staying another year and refine his game to fit the NBA mold better. Embiid is a young big man who is incredibly raw. Those guys usually need a few years to come into their own. All would benefit from another year in college, but that won't be the case. Good for Jabari if he chooses to stay. He's in a great spot either way.

Parker has been open to staying more than a year since day 1 at Duke this isnt a surprise if he decides to stay regardless of where he projects to get drafted. If he stays Duke has a great cahnce to run the table next year and put themselves in the history books.

They should all have to stay at least 2 years...

But as for this situation:
-he's not staying another year
-he's not going on a Mormon mission

He will be in the nba next season. (Unless he gets hurt... And even then, he most likely will still enter the draft)

I'll take it...as many potential superstars as possible stay for the next draft when the Knicks have 1pick atleast guaranteed

I meant from last years draft, should have made that clear. Lol.

Magic could have had added Smart last year and then add one from Parker/Wiggins/Randle, etc but these kids deciding to stay at school another year just ruins it all!

bingo. Look, Parker isn't staying 4 years. Why on earth would he risk injury, and a year of millions in income?

All talk. The $$$ talks louder. I would expect him in the draft.

nah, this year there isn't an obvious #1, so any team getting a top 4 pick is going to get a chance at a franchise changer.

But as a Wolves fan, I sympathize with you. The only time we got a top 2 pick, the draft sucked anyways. The Bucks will get screwed, watch.

haha thanks sir, I play as the wolves sometimes in nba2k so I follow them a bit. yeahh, i'm hoping they won't drop out of the top three..too bad the nba has this draft system. The bucks got really lucky when we had the #1 and got bogut but he wasn't necessarily a franchise changer.

Not buying it. He's a top 2 pick guaranteed.

Smart was a definite top 3 pick last year and went back correct? So how is it naive to think it could happen again with a different player?

Not saying I think he will stay another year but it is a possibility.

Perhaps, but Smart also lost money now. He's maybe slipped out of the top 5.

I have thought he was coming back for one more run all along, I think he and Okafor are good friends and what Wilbon said the other week only strengthens my belief.

If anybody needs to stay its Wiggins the dude doesnt have an NBA ready body at all.
