Deadline Looms For Leslie, Plumlee

April 10 is the deadline for declaring early NBA eligibility, so N.C. State and Duke are waiting to hear from two impact players.

Both C.J. Leslie and Mason Plumlee will have to declare by tomorrow if they plan on leaving school.  Both presumably got feedback from the NBA Draft’s advisory committee by the last Friday deadline.

Leslie likely improved his draft stock with his play in the NCAA tournament, and he’s still waiting for feedback from the NBA Draft’s advisory committee.

Leslie likely isn’t a guaranteed first round pick, and a return to Raleigh could not only mean further improvement of his draft prospects but also an ACC title and a potential Player Of The Year award as well.

Plumlee’s return to Durham would provide him an opportunity to perform at a higher level consistently while also getting to play a season with younger brother Marshall, who redshirted this year.
