Barnes, Henson Close To Decisions On Draft
North Carolina freshman guard Harrison Barnes is nearing a decision about whether to enter the NBA draft.
Barnes is weighing his options, as is teammate John Henson.
“It’s something for them to watch and still see there’s basketball and that we aren’t going anywhere,” Henson said, then paused. “I mean, that we’re not going anywhere right now.”
Henson, a projected lottery pick in the 2011NBA Draft, said he’ll have a decision on his plans for next year by Saturday. Teammate Harrison Barnes, who is all but guaranteed a top-five pick in the draft, will have fans wait just a few days longer.
“It’ll probably be in at least a week, week and a half or so,” Barnes said.
The deadline for early entry into the draft is April 24.
