    if he is a lottery pick he is done no doubt. Would be stupid not to jump at that.

    If Alec gets a lottery grade, he's gone. Only thing that could potentially change that is if the NBA labor situation looks like it will be worse than the NFL's and there is a good chance they don't have a season next year.

    he's gone

    Edit: If I were him I would go. I think he will be ranked very high, and you just can't turn down the opportunity. (Look what happened to Jake Locker in football...)

    agree on this one. Most mock drafts I have seen have him going 9th. The only hope we have really is that he doesn't get certified top 10 or certified lottery.

    I think Burks is seriously torn on this. I agree that he probably won't turn down the money if he is a potential lottery pick, but the potential for a long lockout might actually influence him as well.

    Can't blame him if he goes, but I really hope he stays.

    Yeah, if he's a sure fire lottery pick he would be smart to go. However, it could depend on what happens with the NBA CBA as well. I've got a question. Will the NBA still have a draft if there is a lock out? If so, it'll be a difficult decision for guys thinking of coming out early, won't it? At the time of the draft, they will not know if there is going to be a season or not.

    Look what happened to Jevon Snead. It can go both ways.

    Looks like the deadline for those negotiations is July 1st, the Draft is June 21st. Alec isn't going to know either way if there will be one.............

    Alec did say in an interview that he's not worrying about the CBA. I was probably wrong to look at that as a factor. As was brought up, it's highly doubtful that anything will be known about the CBA at the time players announce for the draft. Even if it is, it could cut both ways. There will be people advising to come out now with the possibility of getting into the league before a less lucrative rookie cap and more restrictive free agency plan is put in place. There's a lot of money involved and almost everyone with a voice in his ear will benefit from Alec entering the NBA.

    I think he has a lot to work on and would really benifit from another year. Look at chauncey, he came out after two years and was an avg player who bounced around from team to team. Its better to develop in college then in the pros. If he was drafted in back end of the lottery (which is where many of the mocks have him going) were talking about roughly $1.5 million per year with 3 years guaranteed. Thats a lot money, but not a lot by profesional athlete standards. Its not like being an NFL first rounder which basically sets you up for life. Coming back for another year would greatly increace the likelihood of him becoming a succesfull NBA player and eventually getting a big pay day.
