Will Any Top Draft Prospect Stay In School This Summer?

There were some reports saying Joel Embiid may not declare for 2014 NBA Draft. Saying that "he's not ready", and it'd be "overwhelming" if he entered the NBA. The catch? He's supposed to be a top 3 pick this summer, so him staying at Kansas may help himself to develop his game, but it'd hurt the tanking team that tried to draft him. Same thing with Jabari Parker. Reports say he feels like he "owes" it to Duke to stay one more year there, plus, his friend Jahil Okafor will be joining the Blue Devils next season too.

So, it seems we already have two prospects that may stay in college a little while longer. Would it be the right choice though to pass up millions of dollars, to stay in college for no money and risk injury. Well, it depends. In Embiid's case, yes. He has a lot of potential indeed, but he still has some things to work on to polish his game. In Parker's case, I don't think so. He's NBA ready, and even though he may not be ready for the NBA lifestyle, think about it, what rookie is? That's why you're a rookie, to LEARN the lifestyle of the NBA.

Honestly, I think Andrew Wiggins should stay a extra year in Kansas with his buddy Joel Embiid to improve. Even though all these decisions won't be made until the end of the season, who do you think will stay in college?
