Report: Watford still mulling NBA Draft options

After being categorized on an ESPN Insider piece as having “one foot out the door”, it appears Indiana junior forward Christian Watford is still torn on whether to return to Bloomington for his senior season or enter the 2012 NBA Draft.

According to Yahoo! Sports NBA columnist Adrian Wojnarowski, Watford has yet to make a decision on his future.

Here’s the report from Wojnarowski’s Twitter:

Two junior forwards sources say still sifting through info, torn on joining NBA Draft: Duke’s Mason Plumlee and Indiana’s Christian Watford.

If Watford declares for the draft, he would have until Tuesday, Apr. 10 to withdraw due to a new NCAA rule.

He could still wait until the NBA’s deadline of Sunday, Apr. 29 to enter, but would have no option of withdrawing his name if he declares any time after the NCAA deadline.

    If he stays another year, Yogi will make him a rich man.

    hey christian, it is not about your numbers.  scouts look past that now.  they are more in tune with your capabilities and not so much of how many points you score.  can you play with your back to the basket, yada, yada, yada.  please dont leave, you and jordy will be team leaders and have a strong opportunity to hang a banner.  you could play in the NBA, that is not a question.  but you need to land on the right team, or you wont get any minutes at all.  if you go late first round or middle to end of second, you will land on a team with little opportunity.  trust me dude, work on your finishing around the rim and your low post moves.

    I hope that the NBA eventually changes the draft rule. Seen to many kids come out to early chasing there dream just to see it crash. I’m sure everyone remembers kirk hastings? What a terrible mistake he made. To many people push these kids to after the money when there not ready and Watford truely is not ready in my opinion. Yogi Ferril will increase his stock and get him his 1st round money gauranteed if he stays one more year. Hope he plays this safe and returns. Especially if IU wins it all next year and he’s a part of it. He could go top 10 next year and get a real juicy contract.

    The interesting part is that the Hoosiers will be title contenders with or without my man Watford. That said, the man needs to stick around and tear up Kentucky two more times. Maybe work a little more on the defensive side and keep the stroke butta, along with banner #6, his stock can only go up

    I definitely agree with the Haston comparisons…C-Watt needs another year to develop in spite of the great year he had. On a selfish note, I think we could have beat Maryland in 2002 had Haston stayed. Watford could be the absolute difference next year if faced with a similar circumstance in the 2013 final four….
