Draft Updates: Harris, Mock Draft, Small Forwards

The NBA's early-entry deadline came and went late last night, and it appears that Maryland's Terrell Stoglin was the only last-minute addition to this year's list of NCAA underclassmen to declare for the draft. With the 2012 class taking shape, let's check in on a few draft-related updates….

  • Gonzaga junior Elias Harris also took his decision down to the 11th hour, but decided to return to school, reports Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com (via Twitter).
  • ESPN.com's Chad Ford has published the fourth version of his mock draft for this year (Insider only). Of note: Ford has Bradley Beal going third overall and Jared Sullinger down to 12th.
  • TNT's David Aldridge breaks down this year's crop of small forwards, with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Harrison Barnes topping his lists as the only locks for the lottery. Aldridge's piece features plenty of quotes from talent evaluators, and is worth the read.
