Kidney stone of a season over for all but KU. OK, Baylor is still in the NIT, but so what?
As GQ031 (is that your number now?) pointed out, M'Baye is declaring.
For review, NCAA rules require players to withdraw from the draft by April 16, but NBA allows players to declare as late as April 28.
Minnesota has been rejected by Smart and is now looking at Hoiberg.
I wonder if Hoiberg wants to go anywhere. He has already shot down NBA inquiries. As DeCourcy points out, Hoiberg made plenty of money in the NBA as a player and is happy where he is. While the article says he's making $1.5 million a year, I thought I had read somewhere that is was $1.8 million. If he simply doesn't want the 82 game season, then he might be tempted by the right job offer, and he was in the Twin City area for several years as a player and in an NBA office, but I have to think there is a better offer waiting for him and he knows it. I know I would be ecstatic if he was suddenly ensconced here.
Foster was named Texas 3-A player of the year.
Was reported to be getting Frazier, but he's going to wait a week to make the announcement. Huh? Why? (Should I mention that McClellan just decided to transfer to add a new wrinkle and get Jordan91 excited? Just kidding, man.)
So does Smart and Nash declare for Okie State? I can't see why not with the draft being weak this year.
Smart would be foolish not to. He's a consensus top 5 pick. Nash is early second round. I doubt he would improve much if he waited a year. Look how far he fell this year, if this guy was anything like indicative of scouts in estimating Nash's talent.
(OK, so he wasn't.)
For a more reasonable view of Nash's decline, try Hoops Report. Now 45th
In mid-January, he was 19th.
Perhaps of more interesting note is that Markel Brown in now seen as a first rounder by some. See the most recent Hoops report mock in which Brown is 22nd and the 2014 NBA Draft net mock that has Brown 23rd.

And DMN reports that Tubby Smith is the leader to take the Tech job. That would be fantastic for Tech. Not sure how it would affect Frazier's decision.
From what I gleaned of the earlier reports, Frazier wants Walker to stay at Tech in some capacity.
Hoiberg is now a $2 million a year guy and under contract at ISU through 2022-23.
