DJ to enter the draft

He won't be hiring an agent, though. Again, this makes financial sense for the young man, but he has to be concerned with this year's guard crop. The following lead guards are all likely to be taken in front of him: Rose, Mayo, Bayless, Eric Gordon, Collison, and Westbrook. If DJ performs poorly in workouts and/or the other lead or combo guards kill it in workouts, I could see guys like CDR, Jamont Jordan, Kyle Weaver, and Mario Chalmers jump DJ based on size and athleticism. There's no doubt DJ can come in and run an NBA team, but his lack of size is a huge risk factor. Another year at Texas would help his draft slot based on supply and demand alone.
