Insider breaks down the latest whispers concerning the NBA Draft. . .

  • Charlie Villanueva
    Charlie Villanueva is mulling declaring for the 2003 NBA draft.
    Prep star Charlie Vilanueva wasn't sure he was going to Illinois before head coach Bill Self decided to take the job at Kansas. Now more than ever, it looks like he may put his name into the NBA draft and test the waters.

    Villanueva, who never signed a letter of intent with Illinois, could decide to bolt to another program. But signs indicate he may just go straight to the NBA.
