The Latest on Green

It sounds like he still hasn't made up his mind, per Mr. Katz:

Players' return to college would be big boost to teams

Georgetown coach John Thompson III told on Thursday that he is expecting to meet with Big East Player of the Year Jeff Green on Saturday, after Green talks with his family, to discuss his plans. . . . Thompson said he doesn't know which way Green is leaning. "There was a stretch where I thought he was definitely gone," Thompson said. "Then, more recently, there was a stretch when I thought he was coming back. I don't think he knows." Green worked out for Chicago, Milwaukee, Philadelphia and Boston at Georgetown. Sacramento, Minnesota and Charlotte are all waiting to work him out if he stays in the draft. "He's very methodical, like his coach in that regard, and I think he's going to really think this through," Thompson said. It's quite simple for Green: He's likely a Nos. 5-12 pick this year or next. So it comes down to whether he wants to get paid now or in a year, and whether he wants to help lead the Hoyas to a possible national title.
