Riek Withdraws from Draft
According to Jeff Goodman of FOXSports.com, highly-touted 7-2 center John Riek has withdrawn his name from the NBA Draft, and will attend IMG Academy next season. "John had some offers, but felt as though it was in his best interest to get healthy before he goes into the draft,” Fatah Muraisi, Riek's advisor, said. Riek burst onto the scene during the summer, but has since been hobbled by a knee injury and has not lived up to the original hype bestowed upon him.
