Gordon Hayward to Declare for NBA Draft

Although he’s a projected first rounder and Final Four hero, Gordon Hayward is defying the mythical “Butler Way” by declaring for the 2010 NBA Draft: “Butler sophomore Gordon Hayward has declared his intention to submit his name for the NBA draft, according to an announcement today by his father. Hayward’s father, Gordon Sr., said in a text message that his son is not hiring an agent. The two met on campus Tuesday to discuss his playing future.”

    i want to see his measured height, as wel las if he has any other ball handling tricks besides that behind the back move he used so often in the duke game.

    Yannick Noah’s son on the Bulls, Wade playing pick-up with Andy Roddick, now straight-up tennis players enter the draft… Soon, the NBA will have more ties with the ATP then the NFL.

    sorry – THAN the NFL… reminds me of a scene from the first season of The Wire, when the judge was explaining the difference between the two words to McNulty:
    - …as in “Ronda is smarter thAn Jimmy”.

    His talented enough for the NBA.. I thought he wouldn’t leave school early.. Because he look like the kind of kid who would stay 4 years in school…but his draft stock right now is very high..why stay in school, if you risking injuries..

  • ThatDude

    I wonder where he will fall

    he should stay in school, needs to work on his back hand and serve and volley game…

    Dude will get drafted but I was really hoping to see what Butler could do with him back next year.

    Gonna be a good player in the league. 6’9 can do it all. No glaring weakness.

  • jus

    He is a hell of player and will develop into a great pro..it’s not often you see a 6’9 guy who can play every position. Wished he stayed in school for another run with Butler though
