Young and Pruitt to test the NBA waters

Gabe Pruitt is leaning towards the NBA, from Wolf's Blog.

USC guard Gabe Pruitt said he is leaning toward declaring for the NBA draft but will not sign with an agent so he can have the option of returning for his senior year.
"Kind of like how (former UCLA players) Jordan Farmar and Aaron Afflalo did last year," Pruitt said.

I think Pruitt could use another year but with his grades always being the unknown factor I can see why he really wants to go.

Nick Young will probably announce next week. From Kredell's Blog.

The indication he has received from NBA personnel is that, if he declares, his range in the draft would be between picks 10 and 25 in the first round depending on how he does in workouts.

I thought Young might go higher like in the 10-15 range. Well, that's what the workouts are for so we'll see how it goes.

No surprise here. They have already committed to the NBA's pre-draft camp in late May and early June so this really just a formality. Iw ill not be surprised if the both go.
