Jodie Meeks Declare Eligible for the Draft

According to a source on Yahoo Sports, Kentucky Guard Jodie Meeks has decided to enter his name into the NBA draft. Meeks will not hire an agent which will make him eligible to return to the Wildcats if his is not happy with his draft position. Currently Meeks is projected as a second round pick.

Personally I think this is a good move for Jodie, you cannot blame him for at least testing the waters. If Meeks stays he will be playing for his third head coach in four years at Kentucky. I think in the end he will return to school for his Senior season. He knows that he can flourish under John Calipari and be part of a real special team for Kentucky. By participating in these workouts Jodie will be critiqued by NBA scouts which will help him elevate his game for next year.

Still no word on Patrick Patterson.

Good move by Meeks. I too believe he will be back.

The interesting move will be what Patterson does. Though Meeks is not a 1st round lock, I feel that Patterson is. If Patterson decides to also test the waters, he might not be swayed back as easily.
