Most assumed Gary Harris would be heading to the NBA this year and according to a report from CBS, that's exactly what is going to happen. Here is the tweet giving the basic info:
This would be a big loss for the Spartans. Gary Harris averaged 16.7 points and 4.0 rebounds per game. Harris is projected as a Lottery pick this year.
MSU will need players like Alvin Ellis III and Denzel Valentine to step up if this report is true.
Though CBS seems pretty convinced that Harris is going pro, there were a few comments that make it seem like no decision has yet been made. First, Jeff Goodman of ESPN tweeted this:
Gary Harris Sr. told ESPN that no decision on his son and NBA has been made yet. Spoke to Izzo yesterday, will get info and then decide.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) April 1, 2014
"Gary will probably make a decision in the next couple weeks," Izzo said. "He could surprise me like A.P. did, but I think he can be a very solid pick."
So things aren't quite 100% yet, but things still do look pretty likely that Harris is headed to the NBA.
