Oklahoma State's JamesOn Curry Has Nothing To Lose

According to ESPN.com's Andy Katz, Oklahoma State guard JamesOn Curry will remain in the NBA draft. This, despite not being a first round guarantee and a completely denied rumor that the Chicago Bulls guaranteed him in the second round with the 49th pick.

Curry was not even selected to participate in the Orlando pre-draft camp. A telling bit of what the NBA scouts thought of his potential. He was selected as an alternate, but either declined to participate or the need for more alternates never reached down to his ranking.

The NBA draft advisory committee told him he wasn't likely to be drafted and advised him to return to Oklahoma State for his senior year. The only advice that it appears Curry is willing to follow from the NBA is not hiring an agent. This means that in the likely event he goes undrafted, he can still return to Oklahoma State if he chooses.

Curry was the Cowboys second leading scorer and assists leader with 17.3 and 3.7 respectively. Oklahoma State has a good recruiting class coming in, but they need Curry. Depth was an issue last year as the team only went about 7 deep. The players had to rack up huge minutes and struggled badly in the second half after a great start.
