Kemba Walker has declared himself eligible for the upcoming NBA draft. UCONN won its third national championship with Walker at the helm and he is projected as a first-round NBA draft pick. But with a possible NBA lockout occurring this summer, is declaring for the draft a wise move on behalf of Walker? Sources say that Head Basketball Coach Jim Calhoun advised Walker to forgo his senior season.
Walker accounted for 45% of UCONN’s team points as he averaged nearly 24 points per game in leading UCONN to a National Championship, including an 11-0 run through the Big East and NCAA Tournament.
