Underclassmen like Jones had until Sunday to declare but cannot sign with an agent and must withdraw from the draft by May 8 to maintain their NCAA eligibility. Journal News

High school basketball player Kevin Jones dreamed of reaching the NBA and becoming the next Dwyane Wade, but his hoop dreams were cut short this summer by a gunman's bullet. Wade, who hosts a youth basketball camp at his alma mater, Richards High School in Oak Lawn, held a private meet-and-greet lunch Friday at the school with Jones' mother, Denise, his brothers, DeVonta and Anthony, and his sister, Antoinette. The meeting came almost two months after Jones' death. Chicago Tribune

Afterwards, Wade ate and talked with the family for an hour and a half, sharing basketball tips with Jones' brothers. He also signed Jones' school jersey and one of his basketballs for the family. Those present said there seemed to be some initial awkwardness between the Miami Heat NBA star and the awestruck kids. The usually talkative Wade found himself simply uttering "I don't know what to say." Jones' mom was equally tongue-tied. "I was in a state of shock. I've still got butterflies," Denise Jones this evening. Chicago Tribune
