2011 NBA Draft: Alec Burks Will Now Make Decision On Thursday

The Colorado Buffaloes and NBA teams will need to wait an extra 24 hours to find out Alec Burks' decision on entering the 2011 NBA Draft early. Originally scheduled to announce his future plans on April 20, the sophomore guard will now do it on Thursday, April 21.

Burks is headed to be a lottery pick whenever he comes out, but according to 2011 mock drafts he could go in the back end of the lottery. NBADraft.net projects Burks to the Milwaukee Bucks at No. 10, while DraftExpress has the Utah Jazz taking Burks with their original first-round draft pick at No. 12.

The NBA Draft early entry deadline is set for Sunday, April 24. Should he elect to enter the draft but not hire an agent, Burks will be able to pull out of the draft until May 8 and retain his collegiate eligibility. The NBA Draft is set for June 23.
