J'Covan Brown NBA Decision Coming Next Week

Texas Longhorn junior guard J'Covan Brown will announce his intentions regarding the 2012 NBA Draft on Tuesday of next week, according to his Twitter feed, which is set on private.

Given his personal situation -- Brown has a young child -- and the fact that he widely considered to be unable to substantially boost his draft stock by returning for another season, the odds are that Brown will announce his entrance into the draft.

However, Mark Rosner of the Austin American-Statesman had an interesting report on Monday about Brown:

It's not exactly clear why Brown would opt to return other than to get his degree -- or get closer to getting his degree -- or simply to play with a team that would have a serious shot at contending for a Big 12 title with his return, the return of point guard Myck Kabongo, and what hopefully will be the imminent signing of Cameron Ridley, who reiterated on Tuesday that he will sign with Texas.

At this point, it's difficult to predict which direction Brown is leaning, but it would seem prudent to keep hopes from getting too high, as Brown is basically as ready for the NBA as he's ever going to be.

Still, a return? That would be trill.
