Shabazz Napier will announce his decision on whether or not he'll turn pro on Friday, probably sometime in the early afternoon. No one seems to know for sure what his decision will be, including even his AAU coach, according to a Tweet by Jeff Borzello. It's funny: while there is rampant interest and speculation here in Connecticut on what Napier's decision will be, there seems to be virtually no interest nationally. Sort of like how UConn's entire 2012-13 season unfolded, when you think about it.
The overwhelming consensus is that Napier SHOULD stay. NBA scouts are near-unanimous in that assessment
. Kevin Ollie seems to think he'll stay. Jim Calhoun, too. Both have helped advise Napier through this decision.
But it's up to Napier, and we'll find out Friday. He is slated to announce his decision through UConn's sports information department. If he does decide to go pro, however, there's a good chance he will be made available to the media, we're told.
