    Article on the Dispatch site says that the Buckeyes' Jamar Butler is now considering declaring for the draft. The cupboard is getting bare in Columbus.

    Wow, that is really hard to believe. I really have a hard time seeing his game translate over to the NBA right now. But I have been wrong before. It is difficult to tell anyone not to go get a big paycheck, as long as that paycheck will be there. I just don't see it for Jamar. I would have loved to have all the guys back one last time. But best of luck to them all - 'tis the nature of college hoops these days.

    Also meant to add that I was not doubting you, UA - just saying it was hard to picture Jamar's game in the NBA right now. I'll bet he is just testing the waters and will be back. Hard to find fault with that strategy I guess.

    I understand. I'm sure it'll be in tomorrow's paper. Here's what they have on it now.

    Butler contemplates entering NBA draft, source says (9:07 p.m.)

    Guard Jamar Butler, the only starter expected to return to the Ohio State men's basketball team next season, is pondering whether to join three teammates and enter the NBA draft before the entry deadline Sunday, a source confirmed tonight.


    Butler's father, Melton, did not confirm or deny the rumor when contacted today at home in Lima, Ohio. "I don't even want to discuss that," he said.
    Maybe he figures that the team's fortunes are going to drop so far that he won't even get a sniff from the NBA scouts if he waits another year?

    Re: Oden to the NBA

    It's really quite common for underclassmen to declare for the NBA, not hire an agent, withdraw just before the draft and return to college ball.

    Eric Hicks (I think it was him) and James White did this after their junior year so they could be assessed by the pro scouts and play against high quality players. Both withdrew from the draft just before the selection date and played their senior year.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see at least two of the OSU guys do the same.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Jamar Butler has changed his mind about entering the draft, according to an article in the Dispatch which quotes his dad.
