Russ Smith declaring for NBA Draft...

...according to his father. Last night, while Russ was cutting down the nets in Atlanta, Russ' father came forward and said Russ will be gone shortly to the NBA.

Scouts are predicting Russ Smith to be possibly a second round talent at best with many questions still raised about his size. At 6'1" and 165lb he is hard pressed to take the pounding he will receive by players in the NBA. His speed is not enough to offset the amount of impact his small body will endure. Add to it the question of his decision making and some scouts are even saying he's too big a risk even in the second round.

Take this report with a grain of salt, obviously, but remember Russ is close with his dad and may be telling the truth.
