Marcus Lee RumorsAll NBA Players
Jeff Goodman: Kentucky’s Marcus Lee is still debating whether to return to college or remain in the NBA Draft, sources told ESPN. Could go either way.
Marcus Lee has cancelled at least three workouts with NBA teams, including one scheduled for Tuesday, a league source told SNY.tv. It is unclear how many workouts the 6-foot-10 Lee had originally scheduled.
Lee said Friday he was still weighing his options regarding the NBA Draft and was unconcerned about a possible logjam in the Kentucky frontcourt should he return to campus. “I’m definitely weighing my options, it’s definitely a process,” Lee said on Friday at the NBA Draft Combine. “Once I get back home I’ll be able to talk it through with my family and we’ll figure it out from there. We’ll kind of weigh the options and go from there knowing that there is a risk there in not knowing what might happen.”
Kentucky coach John Calipari believes Marcus Lee will remain in the NBA Draft, but is uncertain about Isaiah Briscoe. “Marcus really wants to do this, and my guess is that he’ll keep his name in the draft because this is what he wants to do,” Calipari told reporters Wednesday. “And I just told him to go up there [to the NBA Draft Combine] and do your thing and show the athletic player that you are. But he’s also worked out. We’ve had those guys work out with teams before the combine so two or three teams could evaluate them, talk to them, and Marcus went to the combine.”
