Austin Rivers will enter 2012 Draft
 
Duke freshman guard Austin Rivers will enter the 2012 NBA Draft with plans to hire an agent, head coach Mike Krzyzewski announced on Monday. Rivers, the 2012 ACC Rookie of the Year, joins Corey Maggette (1999), Luol Deng (2004) and Kyrie Irving (2011) as Blue Devil freshmen to enter the NBA Draft after just one year of college basketball. The three previous freshmen early entrees were each selected among the first 13 players in their respective drafts, including Irving, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. “Austin [Rivers] had a terrific year as a freshman and has put himself in a position to pursue his dream of being a great player in the NBA,” said Krzyzewski. “He is an outstanding young man with an even more impressive family. We are in total support of Austin, his family and his decision. We look forward to watching him continue to develop and excel at the next level.” InsideHoops.com

Lou Williams doesnt have Austin crossover, but watching Rivers highlights it feels like i'm watching Lou Williams a bit. Just a guy who can go on a tear scoring. I wonder where the Sixers pick and where Rivers could fall. I'd love to replace Lou (if he were to opt out and leave Sixers after season) with Austin Rivers.

I continue to say that Austin Rivers it's exactly the same player as Nick Young.

Haters can't hate about Rivers' size now. He has really legit size for a 2-guard.

Now we must extinguish the myth of him being just average atheletically.

He's a project guard. He can't defend, can't shoot free throws, and has no left. He will be a work in progress. If he is on a very bad team he should get some playing time. Usually big men are projects, well Rivers is a project guard.
