With less than a week for underclassman to pull their names out of the NBA draft and return to school and there is still no word on what USC juniors Devon Downey and Dominque Archie plan to do. Both players worked out for a couple of NBA teams in Houston Monday and Downey reportedly has another workout scheduled for later this week.
Neither player is projected to be drafted in the first round and some analyst say it is a long shot that either would be picked in the second round. However, both could also consider looking at a potential contract with a European team. That has become a viable option with players such as Clemson’s Terrence Oglesby and Florida Nick Calathes signing lucrative pro contracts overseas.
Players have until June 15th to pull their names out of the draft and return to school. The NBA draft is June 25th.
