Do you feel there is one thing that sets you apart from the rest of the big men in this draft? Mason Plumlee: I would just say that if you look at what I did this season, I averaged about 17 points on a team that played the toughest schedule in the country. We played everybody... We played Kentucky, we played Louisville twice... And I was the focal point of that team and I was able to succeed in doing that. I would say that I'm tested and I'm ready to help a team right now and years from now. HoopsHype

Tomorrow’s NCAA-mandated date to decide whether or not to enter the NBA early will be just another Tuesday for Duke’s Mason Plumlee. The junior center, who has been told he projects as a mid-to-late first-round draft pick, could take up until April 29, the NBA’s deadline for players to enter the draft. Perky Plumlee, Mason’s father, said Monday morning that his son is “agonizing” over whether or not to leave Duke with one season of eligibility remaining. “Maybe for some kids it’s so clear cut it’s easy,” Perky Plumlee said. “But it’s not an easy decision for Mason. For some kids who don’t want to go to school or don’t do well in school or don’t like school, they would think about it for about two seconds. He’s getting favorable input. He’s well regarded by NBA scouts. He actually is at a point where he would have a bright future either direction.” The Herald Sun

A few other players to keep an eye on include Duke's Kyrie Irving and Mason Plumlee. Sources say that both players are seriously considering making a leap for the NBA.
