Kevin Durant swept the post-season player of the year awards, and now he is ready to sweep the NBA draft. He will hire an agent. His news conference starts at 2pmPT/5pmET in Austin, Texas. During the press conference he says "I mean" in every single sentence. Gets annoying after the first 20 times :) Both Durant and Rick Barnes said that Durant will finish his schoolwork before leaving, so Texas won't be penalized under the new APR system. He will also come up with a plan to work towards his degree in the future. ESPN story. ESPN News reports that he will sign a shoe deal in the magnitude of $20 million. Who needs the NBA salary? :-)
ESPN News reports that the Charlotte News and Observer reports that Wayne Ellington reports that he will return next year (where was he supposed to go? NBDL?).
After successfully failing to return Michigan to the NCAA tourney, Tommy Amaker will try to become the Coach K of the Ivy League as he is expected to take over Harvard.
