Stauskas has chosen an agent?
I don't know the voracity [sic] of that site, but that is one horribly-written article.
thought the same thing. Also said he was delaying a decision because you only get to be in college once basically. contradicted itself.
English is much different in Canada.
It's basically French in some parts of the country.
Basically?? No it's totally French in areas. Even though we have to put French on our products in Ontario. Some areas in Quebec do not require english
I understand Quebec also bans humour.
"sources" say Nik is going pro.
This may fall under "I was first to report this" news.
what's the point of the last half of the article if his source is saying that he is going to the draft? Whether college is the greatest four years of your life and having "maturity issues" (I think that's what he was trying to say) is a moot issue.
The Stauskas family has been working towards this moment (NBA) for years. It's well deserved, and while we want him to win us more Big Ten championships and Final Fours, can't deny the kid his due.
The most telling sign (apart from the moment of unguarded honesty by Stauskas' dad a few months back) was when Beilein was asked about the scholarship situation being 1 above the limit with the new class coming in and, without missing a beat, Beilein deadpanned "It'll work itself out".
There's a reason coach isn't worried about the scholarship thing and is on the hunt for impact transfer players this season.
He had a great run. Time to step it up Zak, Caris, Derrick etc
We all sorta knew this moment was coming. I am very thankful we had the oppotunity to watch him wear the Michigan uniform. What an amazing player. I hope he tears it up in the league.
Glad he went with JBart's dad(if true). Interesting about the summer snub. I LOL'd when I read he was snubbed for not changing his body in prep for the NBA
They might want to rethink their position. Sounds like the decision burned them pretty good in competition too. Good.
Aside from the obvious improvement in his muscle tone, the look on the face too. Boy...man. He's all grownz up now.
Seeing pictures from last year, he looks like 5 years younger. Between the shorter hair-do and thr added muscle he looked like a totally different guy. Good luck in the league young canadian
Canadians must be the only people who get less tan in the "after" photo.
it when this information shows up on a site that wasn't created by a high school student...
if it was Bartelstein however i would be surprised if he has made "official" contact yet. If he had, there would be no purpose in getting the evaluation by the Undergraduate Evaluation Committee. It makes much more sense to wait a few days for the evaluation to come back.
My guess is the article is a bit early and some "unofficial" and within whatever the rules allow type contact has taken place in order to prepare for what probably we happen.
Who will replace his three-point shooting?
will step up. He's shown the capability all year and although I think Irvin has an improved year, Caris will be the go-to guy.
Dunno. Choose one of the 3 other 40% three shooters on the team.
This...of all the things to be worries about, 3pt shooting isn't really one of them.
Not just his three point shooting, his swag.
"I can tell you for a fact he has made no decision on (entering the NBA Draft)" - Paul Stauskas on his son's decision.

Stauskas received feedback from NBA advisory board yesterday, but has to discuss w/ his family. Decision announced in near future.

So your saying theres a chance??
UM Hoops has a post up on this, saying the decision could come early next week.
His father also said this morning that he has not chosen an agent.
I'm confused. Will this agent help Nik select his upcoming Junior class schedule or was he retained to help him find suitable off-campus housing? Or perhaps he was secured to help NIk find gainful employment this summer.
Why else would he need one?
Maybe it's just me, but it's a forgone conclusion in my mind that Stauskas is going pro. The big question is whether McGary and Robinson are back.
That was one of the worst written articles I have ever seen. Do not use that as a reliable source.
ESPN just said he entered the draft. Source told Jeff Goodman
He just denied all claims being made. I have no idea how to embed. sorry!
but what does Nik Stauskas really know about what Nik Stauskas is thinking? I'm unconvinced until I hear from a more reliable source
"Stauskas showed that he was far more than just a spot-up shooter this year."
Glad the WWL got that into the article. At this point it's almost self-parody.
ESPN just tweeted 1m ago that he's entering the draft
Posters used to know things before ESPN. -sigh- This news is at least 5 minutes old and still, no Thread....
Ah the media, how I loathe thee.
Remember when Freep had the full on Rich Rod boner going and ran with a headline that he was fired they day before he was actually fired?
Why is this a secret and mysterious? We all know He gone.
You deserve one for effort and one for admitting defeat.
You have to click on "Switch to plain text editor" before pasting in the embed code. Then you should be set.
I mean, all the importan information is in that post. It just happens to look really ugly.
Of course, Stauskas tweeted moments ago that he "hasn't made ANY decision yet," but it has to just be a matter of time now.
I just received an ESPN alert that Nik has declared for the draft according to Jeff Goodman
How the hell am I supposed to get any work done in a world where twitter exists?
ESPN now reports he’s gone. Everyone who is surprised raise your hand. No one?
It drives me crazy how everything nowadays needs to be reported first by a certain person. It really takes away from the kid's moment to declare or not. Julius Randle is reportedly declaring yet tweeted he hasn't made a decision. Whether that tweet is true or not, I would be pissed if I was the kid.
It's a life lesson for the kids transitioning from school to the "real world" where people don't give a rats behind and your feelings don't matter. Gotta be able to handle the mental distractions if you want to cut it at the next level.
We all know Nik is gone. The only issue left is whether Mitch and GRIII come back.
(guy who KNEW Trey Burke would leave after his freshman year)
But, glass half full, we can take the hit even if all three leave. Granted we need improvement from some players but I think it will happen. Prepare for the worst and hope at least McGary stays.
