Should He Stay or Should He Go?

Today's newspapers are reporting that junior forward Michael Washington is considering declaring himself eligible for the NBA draft.

I'm hardly an unbiased observer, but I don't think he's anywhere close to being ready for the pros. Yes, his stats are pretty nice, and he obviously has got some talent. But, among other things, he gets his shot blocked an awful lot - often by guys not as big as him. I personally think he would get eaten up in the bigs, but then again, there are reasons that I'm just a blogger and not an NBA scout.

Mainly, though, I would like to win more than two conference games next year, and, without Washington, we might have a hard time doing that. Stephen Cox and John Paul Noland can't do everything.
