Yahoo Sports NBA writer Adrian Wojnarowski reported Saturday night that Indiana freshman Noah Vonleh is “strongly leaning toward entering the NBA Draft.”
Wojnarowski’s report also suggested that Vonleh sat out two games late in the regular season with foot inflammation due to concerns about his potential draft status.
Shortly after Wojnarowski tweeted the link to his story, Alex Kennedy, the NBA writer for basketballinsiders.com, tweeted that he could confirm the report of Vonleh leaning toward early entry.
Vonleh declined to talk about his looming NBA decision following the Hoosiers’ Big Ten Tournament loss to Illinois Thursday.
Teammate Yogi Ferrell simply said, “Whatever’s best for Noah, he’s going to make that decision.”
