Husky Men's Basketball

The latest news and analysis on Husky men's hoops.

Hawes decision still a week or two away

With the spring quarter beginning, UW players are back on campus, and with the season already a distant memory, beginning already to prepare for the future.
All of the returnees gathered for a pickup game this afternoon at Hec Ed, including center Spencer Hawes, who is back from his week vacation in Hawaii and enrolled in school.
Hawes, however, said he is still contemplating his next move — to stay in school or declare for the NBA Draft. Or, simply, to declare without hiring an agent so he can attend workout camps to gather even more information about which way he should go, which seems to be the conventional wisdom as to what he is most likely to do.
Hawes said he would discuss the issue with some family members this week, including uncle Steve, then meet with UW coach Lorenzo Romar early next week after Romar returns from the Final Four (most coaches attend the event as it also serves as the annual NABC coaches convention).
Hawes said it will still be “another week or two before I really start getting down to it.”
The deadline to declare is April 29. Hawes would then have until June 18 to pull out of the draft as long as he hadn’t hired an agent.
Hawes joked that he was still “in Maui mode” after his vacation, and he was greeted with lots of “Hawaii 5-0” type jokes from teammates.
Every returning Husky played today except for Joe Wolfinger, who is still rehabbing his foot. He went through a private conditioning and shooting workout earlier in the day.
Also playing today was Isaiah Thomas, the former Curtis High grad who intends to sign with UW for the Class of 2008, as well as Oregon State forward Marcel Jones, who is in the area for spring break.
ON STUCKEY — Several questions on an earlier post about Eastern Washington’s Rodney Stuckey and his future. I posted this last week but it bears linking again —- a blog post from Dave Trimmer at the Spokesman-Review stating that Stuckey is enrolled at EWU for the spring quarter and appears to be debating only whether to declare for the NBA or return to Eastern and not transferring to another school. Transferring would require sitting out a season and delaying his NBA entry by two years, which doesn’t seem to make much sense for someone who is regarded as a first-round pick this year. Here’s a recent mock draft from HoopsHype that has Stuckey at No. 22 this season.
Speaking of mock drafts, here’s one dated March 28 from NBADraft.net that has Hawes at No. 10 and Stuckey at No. 33.
