He may have said he'll be back, but Coach Boeheim still wants
him to test the draft waters
Boeheim said late Tuesday night that he is going to recommend Flynn put his name in the draft by the April 30 deadline, go through a few workouts and get a true read on his status.
"He'd have to be top-10," Boeheim said. "He came in and wants to stay, and I do think he'll come back unless he's fairly high."
Boeheim said Flynn's heart isn't in going to the NBA and the discussion is ongoing. But Boeheim doesn't want to dismiss Flynn's potential if he can land in the top 10. He also said Flynn could be a preseason first-team All-American and player of the year candidate if he returns. That does weigh on Flynn.
