After looking at UNLV's Anthony Bennett in the latest installment of Hoops Rumors' Prospect Profile series earlier today, here's a roundup of today's draft news..
- Mitch McGary's performance in the NCAA tournament for Michigan is solidifying the freshman center's stock as a first-round pick in the eyes of NBA scouts, notes Aran Smith of NBADraft.net (Twitter link). McGary has turned a lot of heads in recent weeks, but there's no indication yet that he'll jump into this year's draft.
- Yannis Koutroupis of HoopsWorld released his latest mock draft and has Michigan point guard Trey Burke climbing all the way to No. 5 on his board. Meanwhile, Bennett falls outside of the top ten in this mock draft, despite the fact that many talent evaluators see him as a top five prospect.
- Louisville guard Russ Smith says that he's leaning towards staying in school, writes Adam Zagoria of SNY.tv. The 6-foot guard is currently busy getting set for tomorrow night's championship clash with Michigan.
- McGary's stock is through the roof, writes Zagoria.
