C.J. Leslie Returning To N.C. State For Junior Season

C.J. Leslie announced his plan to return to North Carolina State for his junior season.

Leslie submitted his name to the NBA's undergraduate advisory committee to receive feedback on his draft stock. But after further consideration, he dismissed the committee’s response.

“I never even read that letter,” Leslie said. “I know it sounds pretty bad. But I kind of knew, I had an idea. I talked to a couple people. It would have been a good situation if I left. But I felt like this was the best decision for me, to come back and finish what I started.”

C.J. Leslie Near Decision On Draft

C.J. Leslie plans to decide whether to enter the draft sometime later this week.

“I’m not stressing about it," Leslie said. "Whatever I decide to do is going to be whatever I decide to do. I’m letting it play it out and just go from there.”

N.C. State coach Mark Gottfried said he talked with between 15 and 20 NBA teams to get information on Leslie’s behalf.

“There’s a chance he could be in the first round, but there’s a chance maybe he wouldn’t,” Gottfried said.

The NCAA draft deadline is next Tuesday, April 10.
