UConn center Andre Drummond expected to enter 2012 NBA DraftPosted by Inside Hoops
Andre Drummond will leave UConn after one season and enter the NBA Draft.
The official announcement may come sometime Thursday, or perhaps Friday, but sources at UConn, in the pro basketball industry and close to Drummond’s camp are telling The Courant he will go to the pros.
The Drummond family has been collecting information for the last few weeks and has met with coach Jim Calhoun several times. Two days ago, Drummond told The Courant he was not close to a decision. “Right now, I’m here and that’s all that matters,” he said.
But even by then, industry sources were suggesting he had made his decision. He is likely to be among the top six or seven picks in the draft, which could net him a guaranteed $5-7 million over the next two years.
