Could Bledsoe come back?

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
Interesting to note that as Patrick Patterson, John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins have announced they are forgoing their remaining college eligibility and staying in the 2010 NBA Draft, the uncertain situation of freshman point guard Eric Bledsoe has gone unnoticed.

Bledsoe, who declared for the NBA Draft a couple of weeks ago, has yet to announce whether or not he's staying in the draft.

Friday afternoon, DraftExpress.com posted an interesting tweet about the NBA Draft process of Bledsoe.

"Eric Bledsoe is very much keeping option open regarding possibility of returning until (he) conducts workouts (and) gets feedback on draft stock," DraftExpress.com wrote.

DraftExpress.com did not say what its source was in the report, but by all accounts the website is one of the more reputable NBA Draft sites.

Bledsoe was never thought to be a one-and-done player until he exploded onto the scene this year. Bledsoe averaged 11.3 points and 2.9 assists for the 35-3 Wildcats. His ability to hit the outside shot -- Bledsoe hit 49 three-pointers on the season, second best on the team -- seemed to vault him up draft boards, especially late in the season.

Asked, via twitter, if Bledsoe could be a lottery pick in 2011, DraftExpress.com tweeted, "Who knows? Too many variables to account for. For sure nothing nothing's guaranteed," before going on to say that "he's years away from contributing."

Underclassmen that don't sign with an agent have until May 8 to withdraw from the NBA Draft. There has been no word as to whether Bledsoe or freshman forward Daniel Orton have signed with agents.

Stay tuned.

I think Bledsoe and Orton have gotten caught up in that special afterglow following their tremendous season as a team. Eric needs another year and I hope he comes back but we "need" Daniel to continue his development as an all out stud. Between the 2 of them, Orton could have the biggest impact coming back.
