Kemba Walker Announcing 2011 NBA Draft Decision At Press Conference Tuesday

Kemba Walker is scheduled to hold a press conference Tuesday on whether or not he'll enter the 2011 NBA Draft. The Connecticut Huskies aren't commenting on his decision, but word is he's leaving, according to the Hartford Courant's Mike Anthony. Not that that's a big surprise, since who calls a press conference just to announce nothing's changing?

Walker is projected as a comfortable lottery pick, going No. 6 to the Sacramento Kings in's latest NBA mock draft. The Kings may not actually pick No. 6, of course, but you have to start mocking somewhere.

The star who led the team to a Big East Tournament title run and followed it with a national championship game win will be remembered as one of the best players in school history -- whenever he decides to leave, of course. In his final (probably!) season he averaged 23.4 points and 4.3 assists per game.
