McCants leaving North Carolina, close to hiring agent


April 13, 2005
CBS SportsLine.com wire reports



CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina junior Rashad McCants said Wednesday he will enter the NBA Draft after helping the Tar Heels win their fourth national championship this season.

McCants, the team's second-leading scorer at 16 points a game, said he was in the process of hiring an agent, a move that would prevent him from returning for his senior season. But he said he would continue working to earn his college degree.

McCants said he came back to school after his sophomore season to win a national championship. He also said he wanted to follow in the footsteps of Michael Jordan, who helped North Carolina win a national title before leaving for the NBA as a junior.

"I felt like my whole reason for coming back last year was to get those goals accomplished," McCants said at a news conference. "And I did."

McCants' announcement made official a decision that had been expected for more than a week. Less than a day after the Tar Heels beat Illinois 75-70 in the NCAA final, coach Roy Williams addressed McCants' future by saying, "We could lose some guys, there's no question about that. And we are going to lose Rashad."

Williams said Wednesday that McCants had his "complete support" in jumping to the NBA.

Others might soon follow. Fellow juniors Sean May and Raymond Felton and freshman Marvin Williams are also considering their plans for next season.

On Tuesday night, Felton said he made a decision but wasn't ready to announce it. Williams said he was leaning one way, while May -- the most outstanding player of the Final Four who has said he plans to stay to school -- wouldn't commit to returning for his senior year.

If all four underclassmen leave along with seniors Jawad Williams, Jackie Manuel and Melvin Scott, the Tar Heels will lose their top seven scorers.

Players who want to enter the NBA Draft early must file by May 14. The draft is June 28

Yep yep, saw that one coming a mile away...a shocker would've been him staying. I guess unless you're Peyton Manning or Matt Leinart and are good enough to play another season in the NCAA and still not worry about where you'll be drafted, you'll have to jump.

Honestly, I'd say that's a greater measure of how good a player is. If they have the confidence in their game to stay in school, then they're probably pretty good. If they are coming out after one or two years, then they're probably hiding something that they don't want exposed until they're locked in for long term money from whatever poor sap drafts them.

NBA Draft = Ripoff 65% of the time.

Late.

If you or someone you know has been caused grief by an "Internet Bully" then you and/or that person is nothing but a little punk ass bitch, and the world would be a better, more manly place if you'd just jump off a fucking bridge already.
