Florida sophomore Nick Calathes will enter the NBA Draft, a source told CBSSports.com.

An official announcement is expected soon.

The source said Calathes spoke with coach Billy Donovan on Sunday night, and that Donovan supported the decision. Still, Calathes will not immediately sign with an agent, which will make returning to school an option if it's necessary.

Calathes averaged 17.2 points per game this past season.

Florida finished 25-11.

I think this is the best thing that could happen to Florida, its a classic case of addition by subtraction.  Nick was too lackidasical with the ball at times, carelessly turning the ball over as well as missing key free throws in several close games.  I think Florida will be fine without Nick if not better.  Best of luck to Nick.

I think he should go back to school his Junior year and try to improve his game. He did play well this past season, so I don't blame him for entering the draft.

The key words are opting not to sign with an agent, so I would imagine that Nick will be returning to school after getting analysis from NBA scouts.
