Draft Notes: McAdoo, Franklin, Smart

Let's keep track of all things NBA Draft from Tuesday night right here:

  • James McAdoo has decided to return to North Carolina for his junior season, reports Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports.  Despite being a highly touted recruit who averaged of 14.4 points per contest this year, McAdoo was clearly not happy with his draft projection.  Citing NBA executives, Goodman says that reports on the rangy Tar Heel label him as a man without a position in the NBA, not yet comfortable in the post and not a good enough shooter to play on the perimeter. 
  • Before the announcement, McAdoo ranked 20th on the Draft Express Top 100 and projected as the 19th pick in the site's most recent mock draft.  Three picks later, Draft Express pegs Jamaal Franklin as the Nets pick at 22.  Franklin has the experience and polish to be an instant contributor for a contender that picks in the 20s, if he lasts that long.  Franklin is the Draft Express NBA Draft Prospect of the Week, and Walker Beeken profiles him here
  • Oklahoma State basketball has scheduled a press conference on Wednesday afternoon, tweets ESPN's Chad Ford, who suggests that the school may announce the plans of top-five hopeful Marcus Smart.  Smart is ranked as the third best prospect in the draft by Draft Express.  The last we heard from him, there were conflicting reports of his intentions regarding the draft.
