Brandon Knight, Terrence Jones Encouraged To Enter 2011 NBA Draft By John Calipari

Brandon Knight and Terrence Jones have a decision to make: return to college basketball a la Harrison Barnes, Jared Sullinger, and Perry Jones III, or take advantage of a weakened NBA draft array for profit. Assuming there is an NBA draft, of course. With just days left to make up their minds, what will the Kentucky Wildcats stars choose?

Coach John Calipari thinks they should strongly consider going pro, which would free up some roster space for him to bring in the 2013-14 lottery class. Crop rotation, y'all. Cal also has said he's talked to about a dozen NBA general managers while trying to figure out his players' draft standing.

Knight and Jones are both lottery picks if they opt to go. They might even be able to match last year's John Wall-DeMarcus Cousins showing by both entering the top five.
