Villanova junior guard Scottie Reynolds has decided to enter his name into the NBA draft.
Reynolds does not plan to hire an agent, meaning he could withdraw and return for his senior season.
“Scottie and I have decided that it would be smart for him to experience NBA workouts at this time,” coach Jay Wright said in a statement. “This will enable him to assess where he fits in the draft process this year and give him a better understanding of what it takes to play at that level.
“Scottie is completing all of his spring semester classes and is not hiring an agent. He will be working closely with our NCAA compliance staff so that he can return for his senior year if that is the path he chooses.”
“I will continue going to my classes. But on the basketball court, I am doing this with 100 percent effort. It’s not just about going through the experience. I want to prepare myself in the best way I can and make the most of this opportunity.”
He's not hiring an agent, so expect him to come back. He's just not nearly good enough for the NBA.

Not sure if he's NBA ready but if the reports come back that he is. You gotta go.
He's nowhere near ready, and never will be. He's not an NBA player. Reports are that he won't even be invited to the predraft camp and workouts from teams will be limited because they're trying to cut costs.
A lot of Scottie bashing going on here. He's definitely got talent to be in the NBA in my opinion, but only on a team that knows how to utilize him. Teams trying to force him to play point guard will fail, but as an off guard, particularly off the bench, to score in bunches he should be able to achieve. He can be like a Lou Williams, Charlie Bell, Barbosa, type player for teams. Obviously he's not a carbon clone of any of these guys, but the talent is there to have the same effect.
