Marcus Williams Not Officially Entering Draft
According to the Tuscon Citizen, Arizona freshman forward Marcus Williams has not decided whether he will enter the NBA Draft yet. Several sources have already reported that he announced his intentions earlier in the week, but he insists that he has yet to decide. “I don’t know where they got that from,” Williams said. “I haven’t told anyone what my decision is because I haven’t made my decision yet.'’ Assistant coach Josh Pastner went into further detail. “Earlier this week it appeared like he’d be putting his name in there, but in the last day or so, I’d say it’s 50-50.” Williams averaged 13.0 ppg, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.0 steal per game this past season. Teammate Mustafa Shakur has already announced he is testing the waters.
