    Willie Warren 1.1% Chance going Pro?

    Confusing statements from Warren from OU on whether or not he is going to turn pro (98.9% vs 1.1%). He has some statements that talk about the need to dominate for a year without Griffin but then also talks about going pro he if can average 30 points for the rest of the tourney (that's just a couple games).

    My gut tells me he's leaning on entering the draft without an agent. I think it only depends on whether or not he's safely going to be a lottery pick and nothing to do with whether he's ready. Prior comments on this board make me believe he wants to go pro and not too worried about his team.


    Warren '98.9 percent' sure he's returning to OU | FanNation

    I'd rather wait until the tourney is over. Something to keep in mind is that when your team is on the cusp of going to the Final Four, your fans don't want to hear you talking about going pro because it will come off as not being focused on winning the Championship.

    It does raise the question of what his mindset is - the risk is that he tries to do too much and plays out of control in an attempt to improve his standing with the NBA.
