Butler's Mack in draft ... at least for now

Posted on: April 12, 2011 9:41 am
Butler's Shelvin Mack is declaring for the NBA Draft, but whether he'll remain in it past next month's deadline to withdraw remains unclear, a source confirmed to on Tuesday.

Mack has no immediate plans to hire an agent.

The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 16.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists this season while leading Butler to its second consecutive NCAA tournament title game. The Kentucky native is projected as a borderline first-round pick, though he could be aided by underclassmen like North Carolina's John Henson, Baylor's Perry Jones and Ohio State's Jared Sullinger already announcing that they will return to school.

The deadline to withdraw from the NBA Draft is May 8.

I sure hope he changes his mind and comes back to Butler for his senior year. Without him and Howard graduating, Butler will have a tough season ahead of them.
