Here's a few conflicting stories about Tristan Thompson and the NBA Draft.

NBADraft.net reported yesterday that Thompson has signed with an agent and is entering the NBA draft. My first reaction is the site got this wrong as earlier in the week there was a mixup between Tristan and a different Thompson of North Texas. The 6-5 senior guard from North Texas has signed with an agent.

Our Tristan's mom reportedly told Zagsblog.com this morning that the NBADraft.net report was incorrect. Mom, Andrea Thompson, said this by phone from Canada:

I didn’t sign anything, We didn’t sign anything. I don’t know where this is coming from. We didn’t talk about anything yet. He’s going to finish this season. We’re just relaxing.”

The deadline for early entries is April 24th. Underclassmen who have not signed with agents may pull out of the draft and return to school up until June 13th. The 2011 NBA Draft is June 23rd.
