Tom Izzo expects Nick Ward to once again test the NBA draft process. As for Cassius Winston? Michigan State’s coach said Wednesday he believes his junior point guard should explore it as well. “I would recommend and I am recommending that both of them take a look,” Izzo said Wednesday during his season-ending press conference.
Spartans point guard Cassius Winston and forward Nick Ward both said they haven’t thought about the decision of whether or not to declare for the NBA draft yet. “These guys mean the world to me, and I’m not really focused on that decision yet,” Ward said. “I’m just really trying to spend time with my guys.” Winston said he needs to talk to his family before making any decision and doesn’t have a timeline. “I’m just enjoying this right now, enjoying my teammates and then I’ll sit down and have that conversation when the time comes,” Winston said.
Brendan F. Quinn: A source tells me Michigan State sophomore Nick Ward has conducted individual workouts for the New York Knicks and the Oklahoma City Thunder, so far. He’ll work out for the Detroit Pistons this weekend and has been requested for workouts by at least 8 other teams.
