According to the Charlotte Observer, Josh
Powell will be staying in the draft. Even his AAU coach is trying to tell
him it's a really bad idea, but Powell is not listening: "Some agent has
gotten to him and conveyed that he will be taken in the first round, and that's
just not true," Norman Parker told the Observer. "Not that he won't be
drafted somewhere, but it'll probably be in the second round, and that's not
worth it. I've conveyed that to Josh and his people, but I think his mind is
made up...He knows what I'm going to say,and he doesn't want to hear it."
Welcome to the CBA, Josh.
