Thursday afternoon in Boulder, Colorado point guard Spencer Dinwiddie announces his intention regarding the NBA draft, and this is a big one, not only for the Buffs but for the Pac-12.
I think Colorado, with a healthy Dinwiddie, could be Top Ten-good in 2014-15. The Buffs have virtually everybody else returning to a team that crashed the NCAA tournament this year (before it crashed and burned in the first game against Pitt).
Logic seems to suggest Dinwiddie will say he’s coming back. He injured his knee early in January at Washington, and it’s unrealistic to think he could give NBA teams a good read on his physical readiness. This is probably a first-round draft pick if sound, but it’s hard to see him going that high if there are doubts about his health.
Then again, stranger things have happened. Stay tuned.
