RealGM.comJohn Wall said he’ll go home to Raleigh, N.C., on Friday and visit with his mother for Easter. He’ll discuss his NBA decision with her, he said, and with John Calipari and his former AAU coach, Brian Clifton, and he’ll make a decision in “a week or two.”
Wall said it “can be an easy decision at times,” but called his year at UK “a great experience.”
“If you leave, you’re becoming a man; it’s everything on your own,” Wall said. “If not, another college (season) wouldn’t be bad. It’s fun. The season was good. You’ve got to sit down and weigh your options and pick from there.”
You think CBA negotiations have a role to play in this? I mean if he comes out this season, plays a year in the NBA and then the players are locked out for a season he's stuck playing no ball for year in North America. Staying isn't a bad option. He can get an education and polishes his skills while the new NBA landscape is decided. Wade stayed in school longer than the new norm and it served him well. On the flip side if he waits the rookie scale will most certainly be reduced when he would be signing his rookie contract. That means he's sacrificing some a lot of money by staying. That money could be used in a lockout to go back to school and finish his education.
