Smart's plan for 2014
By Nick Borges
Oklahoma State point guard Marcus Smart surprised many in the NBA by not making himself available for the 2013 draft. Well, they won't have to wait too long as he will be in the 2014 NBA draft.
"It's safe to say that if, by the grace of God I'm healthy and everything, this will be my last year at Oklahoma State," Smart told Yahoo! Sports. "Nothing will change my mind on that. [Oklahoma State] understands. They didn't figure I was coming back this year. They were just as surprised as everyone else."
Had Smart come out in 2013 he would have been selected with the No. 2 pick by the Orlando Magic. The Magic will be in the lottery next year, so there's a chance they can get him in 2014.
ESPN.com's Chad Ford currently ranks Smart at No. 3 on his Top 100 2014 Big Board.
