(CBS) The Wolverines took another hit Wednesday when news broke that junior guard Tim Hardaway Jr. would enter the NBA Draft.
Hardaway, an All Big Ten selection, averaged 14.2 points during the 2012-13 season where Michigan finished second in the NCAA Tournament.
Most analysts have Hardaway as a second-round selection, but one draft expert said he could sneak into the first round.
“There might be some teams that view him as a first-rounder,” Draftexpress.com’s Jonathan Givony told the Detroit Free Press. “People are all over the board on him. Some people really like him, some people think he’s not an NBA player, period, and they wouldn’t even draft him in the second round.”
